Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

Awards Short-listed for Indie Book Awards 2015 (Australia) -- Short-listed for Nielsen BookData Booksellers Choice Award 2015 (Australia) -- Short-listed for Australian Book Industry General Fiction Award 2015 (Australia)
NZ Review 'There's no sophomore [second-novel] slump here...It's a funny novel that also made me think about relationships: what makes them work and how we have to keep investing time and energy to make them better. A sweet, entertaining, and thought-provoking book.' -- Bill Gates 'Don Tillman...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. Through him, Simsion...deals with issues of nature, nurture, gender, free will and the vagaries of the human heart with a deceptively light touch.' Evening Standard 'Don himself, pedantically single-focused as ever, is increasingly charismatic and the left-field resolution of his problems is as satisfyingly credible as it is delightfully unexpected.' Adelaide Advertiser 'Very sweet, very wry.' West Australian 'The Rosie Effect is a successful sequel; it will be enjoyed by readers who found The Rosie Project entertaining, and to new readers searching for a satisfying comedy, with a memorable main character and plenty of heart.' Weekend Australian 'As endearing as its predecessor.' NW 'Another rollicking ride. I can only hope the madcap journey isn't over yet.' Otago Daily Times 'Unlike most sequels, this second book is very close to being as good as the first...The writing is witty and the characters charming, making it easy to just sit back and enjoy the ride. Here's hoping for book number three.' Dominion Post Weekend/Waikato Times/Weekend Press 'This charming new chapter in the Tillman chronicles leaves you hoping it won't be the last.' People 'Heartwarming, poignant and often hilarious, The Rosie Effect is a worthy second chapter in Don and Rosie's story.' Shelf Awareness 'Don and Rosie are back!...Readers who loved the first book are in for another treat.' STARRED Review Library Journal '[A] winning sequel...The Rosie Effect is a celebration of the best attributes to be found in a friend, a husband, or a father, regardless of the way they are expressed.' STARRED Review Booklist 'A wholly absorbing, vivid read that leaves you pining to be reunited with its characters every time you put it down-if you're able to.' Independent '[A] romantic comedy that's just as smart, funny and heartwarming as the original.' Washington Post 'That these books are as funny and charming and often touching as they are is a tribute to the skill with which they're written.' NPR 'Brilliantly funny.' International Traveller 'In Simsion's hands, Don's voice once again shines as one of the most unique in contemporary fiction.' Everyday Ebook

Author's Bio

Graeme Simsion was born in Auckland and is a Melbourne-based writer of short stories, plays, screenplays and two non-fiction books. The Rosie Project began life as a screenplay, winning the Australian Writers Guild/Inscription Award for Best Romantic Comedy before being adapted into a novel. It went on to win the 2012 Victorian Premier's Literary Award for an unpublished manuscript and has since been sold around the world to over forty countries. Sony Pictures have optioned the film rights with Graeme contracted to write the script. The Rosie Project won the 2014 ABIA for Best General Fiction Book, and was ultimately awarded Australian Book of the Year for 2014. The sequel, The Rosie Effect, was released in 2014 to great acclaim and also became a bestseller.
