Staff Book Review: The Rosie Project

I forgot the last time I read a book and laughed so much. The Rosie Project sure made me smile and chuckle more than a few times. The main character, Don Tillman, has an Asperger’s syndrome – a condition that is pretty much permanent in one’s life and clearly not a laughable matter. (more)

I had read the book, and if possible enjoyed the audiobook even more, read by an Aussie it made the character come even more alive! I absolutely loved it. And will listen to the Rosie Effect next.

Very fun. If you like it, try Adrian Mole Diaries by Sue Townsend

Great book to listen to when you need to relax or convalesce. Entertaining. Best without the critical thinking cap, though.

The glimpses inside a genius male mind and the excellent Aussie presentation by Dan O'Grady of the audio version is so well done I frequently smiled or laughed aloud. I identified with the way protagonist Don thought even though I'm not brilliant and I'm female. A delicious read that was over 'way before I wanted to finish reading it. Well done, Graeme Simsion.

Awesome main character! Like the t.v. series "Monk" but better. Definitely had me giggling. Opposites attract.....

Fantastic audiobook! I enjoyed listening to it so much that I wished I had more laundry to fold, more weeds to pull, more mindless chores to do. I found myself laughing out loud repeatedly. Now that I've finished, I might just start it over again!

I departed from my usual steady fare of detective stories to enjoy a delightful story of an autistic genetics professor who sets out to find a wife using a lengthy questionnaire of acceptable traits. Everything is either correct or incorrect. While working on his Wife Project, he gets sidetracked helping a young woman, the eponymous Rosie, in her quest to find out who her real father is. Rosie, of course, as a drinking, smoking, brilliantly-dyed redhead, is totally unsuitable as a mate. And if you can’t predict how this one ends, you’re somewhere “on the spectrum” yourself. Still, it’s all good fun. The setting is Australia and I recommend the audiobook version. The reader is excellent, with a charming Aussie accent. This has been a best-seller for weeks, and this time it’s with good reason.

Loved, loved, loved this book. I was sorry to have to leave Don and Rosie behind. Gentle, fun, intelligent -- a gem. (I may have a touch of asperger's myself, just possibly.)
