The Rosie Effect

After reading The Rosie Project, I couldn't wait for the sequel, The Rosie Effect, to be released in December.  I expected to dive right in and consume that book as quickly as I had the first one.  However, the past few months have been very busy, (hence the relative blog silence) so I just got around to reading it now.   Like the first book, it was hysterical in some parts and poignant in others.  The first book however, had the element of surprise going for it.  It was so unexpected that a protagonist would try to use data analysis to find a wife, that the plot just flew by.
Here is what I wrote about The Rosie Project when I first read it:

The Rosie Project

I just finished reading The Rosie Project, by  Graeme Simsion.  This romantic comedy follows the misadventures of a brilliant geneticist in his quest for the perfect wife.  Since social encounters are awkward for this man who, at first,  does not realize that he suffers from Asperger's, he develops a questionnaire to find a suitable life-mate.  Enlisting the assistance of a fellow professor and his wife, he commences "The Wife Project" with the precision of a university study.
Enjoy this funny look at dating rituals and social conventions as your next beach read.

Happy reading,
