Don and Rosie are back! Simsion created these delightful characters in his acclaimed first novel, The Rosie Project (a LibraryReads top pick).
Now they are living in New York City, where Don is a visiting professor at Columbia University’s medical school and Rosie is working on her PhD. Marriage has complicated Don’s life, but he is coping. Rosie convinced him to give up the standardized meal system and told him that sex could not be scheduled. As Don determines other ways to manage their lives with the utmost efficiency, Rosie announces that they have something to celebrate. She says, “We are pregnant.” This declaration throws Don into a tailspin, but he manages to bounce back. Comic adventures follow as he researches pregnancy, how to be a dad, and dealing with Rosie’s late-night cravings.
VERDICT: Readers who loved the first book are in for another treat.
