Teaser Tuesday (September 16)

Tuesday Teaser

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

My teaser this week is from The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion which is the sequel to the fabulous The Rosie Project

The Rosie Effect

Blurb

With the Wife Project complete, Don settles into a new job and married life in New York. But it’s not long before certain events are taken out of his control and it’s time to embark on a new project . . .
As Don tries to get to grips with the requirements of starting a family, his unusual research style gets him into trouble. To make matters worse, Don has invited his closest friend to stay with them, but Gene is not exactly the best model for marital happiness. As Don’s life with Rosie continues to be unpredictable, he needs to remember that emotional support is just as important as practical expertise. NetGalley

My Teaser

It was 9.27 p.m. when  I arrived home from Dave’s. Rosie flung her arms around me and began crying.  I had learned that it was better not to attempt to interpret such behaviour at the time, or to seek clarification as to the specific emotion being expressed, even though such  information would have been useful in formulating a response.  Instead, I adopted the tactic recommended by Claudia and assumed the persona of Gregory Peck’s character in The Big Country.

Please leave the link to your teaser in the comment box below.

  1. That sentence certainly did tease since now I have to go and look up Gregory Peck in that film.. I never read the Rosie Project but bought it for my mum who loved it. Does the Rosie Effect live up to that – if so, that’s a birthday present dilemma solved 🙂

  2. I read The Rosie Project as my first book of this year, so I have added this one to my list! From the excerpt, it sounds like Don is just as clueless as ever! LOL Thanks for sharing…and for visiting my blog.

  3. My teaser is “Finding a proper husband is rather like selecting a hound. They all have more bark than bite, my girl. One day you’ll look across the breakfast table and realize the only option left is obedience training.”
