I'm about halfway through now and I really like it. 

 

As some others have mentioned with the bluefin tuna situation.

There's a lot I loved in The Rosie Effect book and I might come back to them later, but one thing I want to say now: a character in the novel says "What happens in Göteborg stays in Göteborg." I love it that they've kept the umlauts! I don't know, maybe they always do, but it's always a real pleasure to find a familiar word (one that is foreign to native English speakers) written as it is. In a book. :wub:

 

Okay, I can't help but quote a few things: 

 

 

p. 133

Ouch!! 

 

 

p. 388

:rolol:  :rolol:  I thought TRE had a lot more moments that I actually laughed out loud at than TRP, which I definitely liked.

Yep! I love a good book that manages to make me laugh out loud. It's not always a given that a funny book will do that. It takes a little extra something to make one laugh out loud! :smile2:

I finished reading this book yesterday, the review can be found here in my book blog. I enjoyed the book but not as much as the first one. It was still enjoyable though! But somehow it wasn't as unique as the first one was, and I had a few issues with some of the things in the book. I think it's partially a case of that I hyped it up too much for myself by reading about lots of other people who really liked the book.

I hope you enjoy it :)! Please post what you think once you've read the book :). I looked it up, it seems my library has the book too, so I'm putting that on my library wishlist.
