Description of this Book

Forty-one-year-old geneticist Don Tillman had never had a second date before he met Rosie. Now, living in New York City, they have survived ten months and ten days of marriage, even if Don has had to sacrifice standardized meals and embrace unscheduled sex. But then Rosie drops the mother of all bombshells. And Don must prepare for the biggest challenge of his previously ordered life - while dodging deportation, prosecution and professional disgrace. Is Don Tillman ready to become the man he always dreamed of being? Or will he revert to his old ways and risk losing Rosie for ever?

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Prime deck-chair material * The Times 'Our Favourite Comic Novels' on The Rosie Project * The hilarious follow-up to The Rosie Project, one of the best novels I've read in ages. There's no sophomore slump here . . . It's a funny novel that also made me think about relationships. A sweet, entertaining, and thought-provoking book * Bill Gates * Equally heart-warming and hilarious * Good Housekeeping * If you loved The Rosie Project, I don't see how you could fail to love this funny, poignant sparkler of a novel too * Woman & Home * There is much to love in this comedy of errors * Sunday Express * Genuinely heartwarming, truly endearing, plenty of LOLs. You may end up a blubbing wreck * Heat * Quirky and sweetly funny, you will want to join the Don Tillman fan club all over again * Sun on Sunday * Touching and entertaining * Mail on Sunday * Offers plenty more laugh-out-loud moments * Guardian * Simsion is very smart at negotiating the line between a satire of the whole modern baby-rearing neurosis and drawing intriguing characters . . . this book is an intelligent piece of fun * The Times * Don Tillman is the protagonist who keeps on giving. He is a gem, an empirical laser trained on human shortcomings, especially male ones, and even more especially his own. He is also utterly charming in his lack of guile and his belief in improvability . . . blissfully comic * Evening Standard * Wholly absorbing. Leaves you pining to be reunited with its characters every time you put it down - if you're able to * Independent *
