This was fun to listen to, even though I liked the first story "Rosie Project" better. The narrator is the same for both audiobooks, and he's perfect. He sails you through the whirlwind of amusing chaotic heartfelt thoughts & interesting lives of the academic Australian and American characters. Despite their individual internal obstacles and perceptions by well-meaning friends & family, they persist to find happiness. I'm sure I would enjoy continuations of their story.

I enjoyed this as a great sequel to the Rosie Project. Don and Rosie are now in New York where Don has a university position. Rosie, while studying for both her M.D. and Ph.D decides that it is baby time and gets pregnant, notifying Don of the accomplishment.

Don is learning to manage his social ineptness, stumbling from faux pas to being arrested for suspicious behavior while managing to form and develop friendships.

Sequel almost as good as the first.

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 )

"After the pregnancy was over, Rosie could begin sleeping normally again." p 199.

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.
