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.

Wonderful even brilliant

The world needs this book. We don’t have much understanding of autism and we don’t read the professional literature. The novel provides a way to observe, interact , empathise and maybe be helpful. Best of all we come away loving the characters. The only difficulty for me was to follow the minor characters in conversations. If I was reading a book I could look back and re-read to sort it out. In audio form it is tricky.

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.

brilliance at it's best

Fabulous trilogy with a brilliant insight into autism and asperges. Appropriately and thoughtfully written and read.
