Hello friends, welcome to Wednesday! We are half-way through the week! Today I’m going to be reviewing Graeme Simsion’s novels The Rosie Project & The Rosie Effect.
The Rosie Project by: Graeme Simsion: Don Tillman is not your typical male; in fact, he is very intelligent, but lacks social cues that make social interactions hard for him. He’s on the hunt to find himself the perfect compatible wife, “The Wife Project”. When he meets Rosie, she is the complete opposite of everything he’s looking for, but for some reason he can’t help but break the rules and his habits for her. It goes so far that they bond over finding out who Rosie’s real father is, “The Father Project”. Designed to be a novel about love, it takes relationships, not just romantic ones, to a whole new level. This novel is also all about the point of view; getting into the main character, Don’s head is what made this novel work, otherwise it would have fallen flat. This is what pushed and drew in the plot, it’s where characters developed, through Don. Lastly this novel shows what fate is and how it can work. It’s truly an unexpected love story that will keep readers reading; fast paced and captivating this novel is definitely for the hopeless romantic.
The Rosie Effect by: Graeme Simsion: Don Tillman is back at again; he found his perfect match, but now he has new problems to solve, becoming a father. This new development has created a wedge between he and Rosie. He now has to figure out how to be there for Rosie before he loses her. He has also gained a small group of friends who he is willing to do anything for. This novel takes the reader through an assembly of emotions. The plots go to the extremes from high to low, but they are all so well thought out, and beautifully written that the emotions the readers feel are genuine. The characters have developed since the first book dramatically; just when the reader thought they couldn’t love Don anymore, they fall in love with him all over again. This novel didn’t just surpass the first novel, it soared it making a mark in the book world as being exceptionally breathtaking, wildly entertaining, and romantic.
