"The Wife Project is complete, and Don and Rosie are happily married and living in New York. But they're about to face a new challenge because--surprise--Rosie is pregnant. Don sets about learning the protocols of becoming a father, but his unusual research style gets him into trouble with the law. Fortunately his best friend Gene is on hand to offer advice: he's left Claudia and moved in with Don and Rosie. As Don tries to schedule time for pregnancy research, getting Gene and Claudia to reconcile, servicing the industrial refrigeration unit that occupies half his apartment, helping Dave the Baseball Fan save his business, and staying on the right side of Lydia the social worker, he almost misses the biggest problem of all: he might lose Rosie when she needs him the most"-- Provided by publisher.

I haven't ever used five stars. Love this guy. Wish I had been able to get the previous book first though. Don't even want to bother now...scared it will disappoint.

I enjoyed just as much as the first book, The Rosie Project. Don and Rosie still have issues to work through before their first child is born. Don is as funny as ever. Again, their friends help them get through the messy stuff. I certainly hope to see Don raising a baby in the next book! Go, Graeme!

I didn't love this as much as the first book. While I was eager to revisit these characters, it was a little less funny and a lot more real which made it feel like much longer read to me. Overall, I still enjoyed the story, I just missed some of the humor.

Loved this book. Not as good as the first but still would highly recommend for any fans of the first book.

The second book about Don and Rosie was not as funny as the first. Thought that some parts were a "little draggy". But it was fun learning about the developing the story of the two in New York. Still quirky but perhaps too technical in parts. Was interesting to see Don go beyond his familiar self and try to make Rosie happy during her pregnancy.

This sequel is not quite as funny as the first but is more poignant. Worth reading if you liked the first book. ( Read it first )

This was maybe too much of a good thing. I liked it. It was funny and charming but it didn't meet my expectation set by The Rosie Project. Still a good read though.

For me, THE ROSIE EFFECT, was not quite on par with the first book in this series, THE ROSIE PROJECT, but I still enjoyed it. Don Tillman is a unique character and his continuing journey through life is both humorous and touching. His story reminds us that what can be perceived as flaws or weaknesses in a personality can turn out to be strengths when viewed in a different light.

I thought this was a great sequel and I enjoyed it just as much as the first book. I hope there's another book being written in the series.

It is generally accepted that people enjoy surprises: hence the traditions associated with Christmas, birthdays and anniversaries. In my experience, most of the pleasure accrues to the giver. The victim is frequently under pressure to feign, at short notice, a positive response to an unwanted object or unscheduled event.

I have a theory that everyone is as odd as I am when they are alone.

‘To the world’s most perfect woman.’ It was lucky my father was not present. _Perfect_ is an absolute that cannot be modified, like _unique_ or _pregnant_. My love for Rosie was so powerful that it had caused my brain to make a grammatical error.

It was odd, paradoxical - _crazy_ - that what Rosie seemed to value most about me, a highly organized person who avoided uncertainty and liked to plan in detail, was that my behaviour generated unpredictable consequences. But if that was what she loved, I was not going to argue.

...the answer came to me. The fridge! We would get a bigger fridge, and all the other problems would be solved.
