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.

Brilliant and Funny Finale to a Great Series!

I adored this book as I have the other two in the series, The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect. The whole series has made me laugh out loud on many occasions. I love the narrator's ability to bring this incredible character to life in such a 'real' way. The story (again) is wonderful, quirky, sweet and very, very funny. It is a gently honest but keenly observed piece of writing about an unusual man who lives an extraordinary life somewhat ruled by his autism. In this book, the story is about his relationship with and understanding of, his son.
I highly recommend this book to anyone but particularly to those people who love, or know, or have experience of people on the spectrum. It is a book about life as it is lived by someone atypical and it is full of truth and laughter.

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.
