Simsion has created a very funny novel which also has the reader thinking about emotion and logic, love and friendship, conventionality and non-conformists, and what it takes to modify one's behaviour. This is a fast-paced love story with an interesting twist. Simsion's characters have plenty of depth and the fact that none of them is perfect adds to their appeal. While Don may be wired differently (mentally assessing the age and BMI of everyone he meets, reacting to stress with a spreadsheet or a schedule), he has integrity, focus, enthusiasm and determination, and it is impossible not to feel empathy with him even while laughing at his missteps. And impossible not to shed a tear when he suspects he is incapable of love and therefore unacceptable. This novel is filled with laugh-out-loud moments: a madcap cocktail party, a dance fiasco and a novel escape from a bathroom, to name just a few. Don's highly embarrassing moment with an instruction book, a skeleton and the University Dean is utterly hilarious. The irony of Don delivering a lecture on Asperger's is quite delicious, and who could guess there would be so many inventive ways to obtain a DNA sample! This is a brilliant debut novel. It is no surprise to learn that it won the Victorian Premier's Literary Award for an unpublished manuscript in 2012, and that the rights have been sold to over 30 countries. I look forward to more from Graeme Simsion.
I loved this book and I am going to give it 5 stars! It is categorized as a romantic comedy book and it was just that. It wasn’t a super sappy romantic read which I think I really enjoyed. The situations that Don got himself into were just so funny and I laughed out loud many times throughout the novel.
The writer did an awesome job with character development which can kill the book or make the book. It wasn’t draggy, you found out who each character was and how they fit into the story and each one was memorable. My biggest complaint with books is when they mention a character and then later on mention them again and I have to flip back to figure out who the author is talking about and I did not have to do that with this book.
Even though there is a second book in this series it wraps the story up in the first so you really don’t have to read the second if you do not want to. The second book just goes into what happens next in their lives. I will be reading it soon, so keep a look out for “The Rosie Effect” review in the next month or two.
In conclusion, if you love situational comedy in your books and a little bit of a love story this novel is for you!
