Wholly absorbing. Leaves you pining to be reunited with its characters every time you put it down - if you're able to Independent Don Tillman is the protagonist who keeps on giving. He is a gem, an empirical laser trained on human shortcomings, especially male ones, and even more especially his own. He is also utterly charming in his lack of guile and his belief in improvability ... blissfully comic Evening Standard Simsion is very smart at negotiating the line between a satire of the whole modern baby-rearing neurosis and drawing intriguing characters ... this book is an intelligent piece of fun The Times Offers plenty more laugh-out-loud moments Guardian Touching and entertaining Mail on Sunday Quirky and sweetly funny, you will want to join the Don Tillman fan club all over again Sun on Sunday Genuinely heartwarming, truly endearing, plenty of LOLs. You may end up a blubbing wreck Heat There is much to love in this comedy of errors Sunday Express If you loved The Rosie Project, I don't see how you could fail to love this funny, poignant sparkler of a novel too Woman & Home Equally heart-warming and hilarious Good Housekeeping The hilarious follow-up to The Rosie Project, one of the best novels I've read in ages.
