2014 book 258

Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Effect
The sequel to the very charming Rosie Project was problematic for me, because I HATE books where the entire plot would be cleared up by one honest conversation. On the other hand, I enjoyed seeing Don and his group of male friends help fix each others' lives. So this is kind of a comedown for Don and Rosie, but strong for everyone else? And the end is fine, of course, even if it does involve like twelve deus ex machinas (or whatever the plural of that is). I'd classify this as women's fiction if it wasn't written by a man. What is the category for feel good books written by dudes? B.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in December.
