I would never, in a million years, imagine that one day I would cheer and laugh out loud at a room full of children chanting for someone to “kill the baby!”, but that was before I picked this book up. Because in reality that scene was so hilarious and entertaining!

I was utterly elated: I laughed, I smiled and I “Awww Don” and “Oh Don” through the whole thing. All in all, I had a beatific couple of days reading this book.

It is a smart book with smart characters doing intelligent things thinking intelligent thoughts while simultaneously un-cleverly living their lives.

And though I know it can be silly and condescending at times but you gotta admit, it has the charm factor down pat. It reminds me of the first two seasons of The Big Bang Theory. Emphasis on the first two seasons because after that the show starts to lost its way and got quite misogynistic. Unlike The Rosie Project which held out pretty well to the end.

It got me thinking about basic human instincts and how we are involuntarily influenced by our DNA.

rating: ★★★★½

Julie Lainey Love,
I smiled through this review. I know! What is it about this damn book that makes it so appealing? I think I'm ready to re-read it.
