The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

I've been hearing great reviews about this book for months.

I also saw Graeme Simsion speak at the Sydney Writer's Festival and thought, again, that I really must read this book soon.

But it took a two month long lovefest of classic readalongs to get me there!

I've loved every minute of my classic recent (obsession).
But this past week has been a bit manic. Personally speaking I feel like I've been in sensory overload mode and only just coping with life.

So on Thursday evening I picked up The Rosie Project hoping to find some light relief.

Oh perfect choice!

It has been a long time since a book made me laugh out loud not once, but over and over again. And I read it all in one big greedy gulp over two nights and one morning.

My obvious (and noisy) delight piqued Mr Books interest and he proceeded to read it too. It was wonderful to share the funny moments all over again with him.

Yes, this books is light and easy to read. But it is also well-written, with lots a great set-pieces and very funny dialogue. I can't wait to see the movie with Steve Carell in the lead role :-)
