Into the Wild

Read The Best of Adam Sharp Online Free - From the #1 bestselling author of The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect, an unforgettable new novel about lost love and second chances

On the cusp of turning fifty, Adam Sharp likes his life. 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.

But he can never quite shake off his nostalgia for what might have been: his blazing affair more than twenty years ago with an intelligent and strong-willed actress named Angelina Brown who taught him for the first time what it means to find—and then lose—love. How different might his life have been if he hadn’t let her walk away?

And then, out of nowhere, from the other side of the world, Angelina gets in touch. What does she want? Does Adam dare to live dangerously?

This was a pleasant enough read, nowhere near as good as The Rosie Project but then that was an exceptionally good book! The story was good as was the pacing and I never felt the need to put the book down. I think where it was lacking for me was the characters. When the author told me Angelina and...

Vlot, onderhoudend...Adam Sharpe's leven als veertiger is saai. Zijn huwelijk met Claire, waarbij hij in een andere kamer slaapt, kabbelt rustig voort. Zijn werk biedt geen uitdaging.

3.5 stars Right... I should probably start this review by saying that if you expect Graeme Simsion's third novel to be anything like The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect you'll be disappointed. Especially if you expect any laugh-out-loud moments. The Best of Adam Sharp is about an almost fifty-ye...

This book reads like a creepy middle-aged man's poorly-written fantasy. Unfortunately, it has none of the charm or originality of the Rosie books. Very disappointing.

Adam Sharp is in a ho-hum relationship with Claire, his live-in girlfriend for over a decade. He's doing okay, but he's also bored, overweight, and feeling lonely. Life gets a little brighter, though, when Adam's ex-lover, famous actress Angelina Brown, sends him an email with just one little wor...

The best of Adam Sharp is another interesting offering from the author of the Rosie Project. While a story of multiple adulterers is certainly not as heartwarming or whimsical as the The Rosie Project, I still found it to be a unique and introspective read. The protagonist, who seemingly wakes up...

I don't even know what to say. Apparently Simsion decided to write a book that would cause the majority of the readers to want to find him and kick him in he shins. If you want to read about a middle aged man who after hearing from an ex fling from 20 years ago just turns into a walking and talki...
