“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…”

Graeme Simsion, The Rosie Effect

Full excerpt:

“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.
