Don Tillman Duology by Graeme Simsion
Series: Don Tillman #1
Published on October 1, 2013 by Simon & Schuster
I don't know why I waited so long to read this book, it's an amazing! Don is kind of a Sheldon Cooper, in the way that he doesn't perceive the world around him the same way most people do. Now Don thinks its time to settle down and find someone to have a romantic relationship with, on the course of the story he finds Rosie, a girl that doesn't check any of his requirements for a good partner but still manages to make him care and fell - something that had never happened before.
Don is a great main character, his narrative way is unique and reading about the way he sees the world made some moments hilarious and others very heartfelt. I'm not very sure about the romance, Rosie is pretty crazy on her own, maybe that's why Don is such a good fit for her with his schedules and everything organized, and her for him making him loose himself a little.
This was a one sitting kind of read, a can't stop reading cause is so good since page 1. Super recommended to everyone but specially to lovers of chick lit or adult romances.

I absolutely loved the first book but something of that first spark was lacking on this book. The plot seemed to be moving from one check point to the other without real time for seeing Don's growth as in the first book, turning this more in a entertainment to see what crazy thing Don would do next time than making me care about its characters. Also in the first book there was some major changes on Don's character and in this I just didn't felt like there was much difficulties for him, except of course for Rosie. Rosie was different on this book, she suffered from something like the maniac pixed girl syndrome, she just came in to tell the news of the baby and them was practically gone for the entire book, except when she needed to turn up and give cryptic messages to Don.
What I did liked was the group of friends that Don created, these four boys are completely different but still managed to be friends because of Don putting them together on the same table, drinking every week, it was nice and I felt like they are genuinely friends.
Overall I feel like this book was nice and entertainment but didn't live up to the emotional connecting that I had with the first book, also it was less hilarious.
