He’s happy with his partner Claire, he excels in music trivia at quiz night at the local pub, he looks after his mother, and he does the occasional consulting job in IT.

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
