The Rosie Project was an international publishing phenomenon, with more than a million copies sold in over forty countries around the world. Now Graeme Simsion returns with the highly anticipated sequel, The Rosie Effect.
Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are now married and living in New York. Don has been teaching while Rosie completes her second year at Columbia Medical School. Just as Don is about to announce that Gene, his philandering best friend from Australia, is coming to stay, Rosie drops a bombshell: she's pregnant.
In true Tillman style, Don instantly becomes an expert on all things obstetric. But in between immersing himself in a new research study on parenting and implementing the Standardised Meal System (pregnancy version), Don's old weaknesses resurface. And while he strives to get the technicalities right, he gets the emotions all wrong, and risks losing Rosie when she needs him most.
The Rosie Effect is the charming and hilarious romantic-comedy of the year.
Graeme Simsion is a Melbourne-based novelist and screenwriter. The Rosie Project was the 2014 ABIA Book of the Year and has sold over three million copies worldwide.

Graeme’s screenplay for The Rosie Project is in development with Sony Pictures and The Best of Adam Sharp is in development with Toni Collette’s Vocab Films. Graeme’s latest novel is Two Steps Forward, (Oct, 2017) co-written with his wife, Anne Buist.
‘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
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 
‘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
‘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
‘[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

    I had never laughed so much reading a book. I'm totally in love with the characters and will miss them so much! Hoping for there to be a Hudson Project!

    Beautiful book, funny, heartwarming and I couldn't put it down
  • A fun read but read The Rosie Project first

    By SamChard
    A fun quick read - a bit more serious and dramatic than I remember the first one to be.
  • Waiting for the movies now

    By Dutch Gretje
    A really delightful follow up to the Rosie Project. I'm still wiping away the embarrassing tears after finishing The Rosie Effect in a cafe. Funny, warm hearted and whenever Don narrates I can hear the voice of an Aspergers ex politician in my head. Just waiting for the movies please, but let Graeme have autonomy over the screenplays.
  • Not Sure A Sequel Was Neccessary

    By Dame Tab
    The Rosie Project was an immersive, fun, laugh aloud read...the perfect book to take on holiday. It's sequel the Rosie Effect is less engaging, relying heavily on its predecessor's formula yet is simultaneously less cinematic, endearing and hilarious. The genre cliches of the rom com trope are employed here in predictable fashion and these only serve to reinforce the feeling that this unnecessary and highly sentimental sequel diminishes the originality and impact of the first book.
  • Very good~~~
