Better Nesting Book Club: The Rosie Effect

The Better Nesting Book Club recommends:

The Rosie Effect by
Graeme Simsion

We are having a snow day today. It has been snowing all morning. If you are in the Northeast where there is 5 or 6 feet of snow on the ground you will probably laugh but we could get up to 12 inches of snow. That is not a record setting amount but it is a lot for us and pretty much everything is closed down. I am so happy that I don't have to go out in it today.

What could be better than being warm and cozy indoors curled up with a good book and a cup of something warm on a snowy day?

The Rosie Effect is just plain fun. A nice, light read that will entertain you. When socially inept scientist Don Tillman's wife tells him they are expecting a baby he approaches impending fatherhood the only way he knows how. As a scientific project.

This book will remind you of an old fashioned screw ball comedy with hilarious misunderstandings and mistaken identities galore. From receiving contradicting advice to devising a Standardized Meal Plan, Don tries his best to be a helpful partner to Rosie but it's hard to tell if his efforts are helping or hurting.

This charming, off-beat romance is the sequel to The Rosie Project. You need not have read the first book to enjoy the second, but you might want to.
