Publisher's Summary

I was standing on one leg shucking oysters when the problems began.... 

Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are back in Australia after a decade in New York, and they’re about to face their most important challenge.  

Their son, Hudson, is struggling at school: he’s socially awkward and not fitting in. Don’s spent a lifetime trying to fit in - so who better to teach Hudson the skills he needs?  

The Hudson Project will require the help of friends old and new, force Don to decide how much to guide Hudson and how much to let him be himself, and raise some significant questions about his own identity.  

Meanwhile, there are multiple distractions to deal with: the Genetics Lecture Outrage, Rosie’s troubles at work, estrangement from his best friend Gene.... 

And opening the world’s best cocktail bar.  

Hilarious and thought-provoking, with a brilliant cast of characters, The Rosie Result is the triumphant final instalment of the much-loved and internationally best-selling Rosie trilogy.

Engrossing, emotional and hilarious

I have been following the Don Tilman series since its conception. It’s an amazing and poignant insight into how those on the Autism Spectrum “muddle through” situations and how we can understand the way their magnificent minds work.

As someone personally with Aspergers it makes me laugh at myself and notice little idiosyncrasies that I previously didn’t think to be too bizarre. It’s taught me to take the good from the bad and to live life light heartedly.

Praise to The Rosie Project and its successors and praise to Graeme Simsion for capturing audiences globally.

Delightful and informative

I really enjoyed this series. It is rare for me to laugh out loud but I did on a couple of occasions. But these books are more than comedies. They are warm and thought provoking. I feel I have a much better understanding of autism so I hope the portrayal was accurate. The narrator was excellent for these books as well as his speech was so precise. I will miss Don.

Loved the first two, this one - not so much

This novel felt too worthy. Felt like it was pandering to all the haters. Haters are gonna hate. Do you, Graeme. Loved, loved, loved the first two. The magic was lost in book three. Won’t stop me checking out other titles by this author though... because the journey, till now, has been that good. Dan O’Grady - you rock.

How Don deals with Parenting

I've enjoyed all three of the books in this series. I hope there will be another one, it's hard to let Don go - I feel invested in his life. Book three deals mainly with Don as father. I think to get all that's on offer here you have to have read the previous two books.
The story had the same effects on me that the previous two books had, It has moments that are sad then will be outrageously funny at other times. It made me cringe, made me cry, made me mad and made me happy. Don negotiates his way through life the best he can, trying to understand what others want from him, trying to work the problems and find solutions. He's Everyman, but with an overlay of autism. This book is not only a good read, it's an informative and revealing look into a man on the spectrum as he steps into fatherhood and tries his best to be the best husband and father he can be.

another Rosie hit

I really enjoyed the entire Rosie series, this last novel included. Each book has kept me wanting more and I particularly like the way Simsion has fed us content - boxed in just the way I'd imagine someone on the spectrum would compartmentalize their stories 😉

Enjoyable. Again

If you’re looking for a lighthearted and funny book this is for you. The characters and situations they find themselves in are amusing and more than once I laughed aloud. I’m sorry I’ve reached the end of the series.

Delightful

I loved this story that included Hudson - the son of Rosie and Don. There efforts for their son was outstanding and he was just delightful too. Liked the exploration of autism and the role a school plays with diverse students - the good and the bad. The narration was perfect.
