Graeme Simsion, The Rosie Effect
“I was suddenly angry. I wanted to shake not just Lydia but the whole world of people who do not understand the difference between control of emotion and lack of it, and who make a totally illogical connection between inability to read others’ emotions and inability to experience their own.”
It was enlightening to read this paragraph. While I do logically understand the difference, it is more difficult to apply this understanding when I am frustrated.
Rosie was a very lovely read. I read this sequel as soon as I’d finish with the first book. Will definitely be reading these books again at a later time when I’ve forgotten enough of the plot.
