I LOVED The Rosie Project, even though I didn't find the Rosie Effect as great, I thought I should give The Best of Adam Sharp a chance. Big mistake, it's never awful but it is plain mediocre. The ending is hugely disappointing.

This book started out well and continued to tumble downhill in my opinion. I loved The Rosie Project and was looking forward to another good read.

This was a great disappointment after reading his book the Rosie project. A book about what makes a marriage last, what if there is nostalgia for "the one that got away", it was trite shallow and had a ludicrous plot twist. The only redeeming feature was it was set to the music of our times as the protagonist was a rock and roll piano player. Same subject as A Separation which I read next and enjoyed
