Thinking of choosing The Rosie Project as our August Book Club readThinking of choosing The Rosie Project as our August Book Club read Linda #questionnaire
On my list. Looking forward to your review.
I enjoyed it, some pretty good discussion points through it.
Love, love this book. I am in 2 book clubs. Both clubs read, enjoyed, and had great discussions about this book.
Enjoyed both the Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect. First one is better. Cute, quick read!
I really enjoyed it, and it will lend itself to a good discussion. I didn’t read the second book, because I heard it wasn’t as good, and I didn’t want to spoil the Rosie story.
Great choice! I also loved the sequel The Rosie Effect.
Wonderful book, great discussions!
Loved The Rosie Project!
It’s super fun and it does give you a lot to talk about, especially about social norms regarding gender and dating. I wouldn’t recommend the sequel, but the first one is awesome.
I loved that book. Good pick
My book club loved it!
Great book, loved it!
I’m in the minority and didn’t like it but you guys should definitely check it out. Everyone else I know thought it was great.
Just out of curiosity, what didn’t you like about it?
you’re not alone @Gina…I’m glad I’m not either…i just throught it was slow & didnt really grab me
People connect with different things. My book club loved half-a-dozen books that I thought were either pretentious, poorly written, or just meh.
I couldn’t stand him, he really got on my nerves. I liked Rosie but he just set my teeth on edge.
Catherine, SO true. I hated Fates and Furies with every cell in my body and it won so many awards!
Such a good book!!!!!!
I remember loving The Rosie Project, yet I’m still surprised at how well this book has been received. Mostly because it is an Australian novel, just set in Melbourne.
I still have to read the Rosie Effect, but I guess what I’m saying is if you love these books, read more Australian fiction because it really is the best. We have incredibly talented writers.
Can you suggest more titles? That would be great.
Favourite Australian writers:
– Tim Winton
– Hannah Kent
– Christos Tsiolkas (can be crass and raw in subject, but he’s extraordinary)
– Kate Grenville
– Markus Zusak
– Richard Flanagan
– Omar Musa
If you like lighter reads, I love historical fiction by Belinda Alexandria, Nicole Alexander and Fiona McKintosh.
For chick lit, I love Zoe Foster Blake.
Recent Aus reads I’ve enjoyed:
– Black Rock, White City by A.S. Patric
– Natural Way of Things by Charlotte Wood
– The Golden Age by Joan London
– Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey
– Salt Creek by Lucy Treloar
Thanks!! I think I have Burial Rites on my TBR. I’ll have to check out some of the others.
Her second book The Good People was also really great.
I loved The Rosie Project
Loved this book. Quirky great.
I thought that The Rosie Project was a great fun read. The sequel was also lots of fun, but I think I liked the first one the best.
Loved both books!
