Delta Don whats that Rose?

The Rosie Effect (Don Tillman, #2)The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Within the context of a sequel, this book is top notch. It is interesting and reverberates all the charm of the first book. I love the crisp simple writing style, and the development of the characters. Despite the story having the predictable path of any romantic comedy, the author does a terrific job meandering along that direct path.

In combination with the first book, the story and characters deserve a place on everyone's bookshelf.

Quote from The Beginning of Infinity

As the ancient philosopher Heraclitus remarked, ‘No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it is not the same river and he is not the same man.’

I've always been fascinated by Minsky. A man who was very ahead of the curve.
