Waterstones Says

Graham Simsion’s much-loved trilogy – begun with The Rosie Project and continued in The Rosie Effect – is concluded with aplomb in this richly funny and warm-hearted final novel. Simsion brings real depth and conviction to his central protagonists, whilst exploring – more overtly than in previous novels – questions about autism and identity. Readers who have grown to love Don and Rosie will be pleased they’ve followed their story to its hopeful and rewarding conclusion.

 

The wonderful final instalment to the internationally bestselling series that began with The Rosie Project

Big-hearted, hilarious and exuberantly life-affirming, The Rosie Result is a story of overcoming life's obstacles with a little love and a lot of overthinking.

Meet Don Tillman, the genetics professor with a scientific approach to everything. But he's facing a set of human dilemmas tougher than the trickiest of equations.

Right now he is in professional hot water after a lecture goes viral for all the wrong reasons; his wife of 4,380 days, Rosie, is about to lose the research job she loves; and - the most serious problem of all - their eleven-year-old son, Hudson, is struggling at school. He's a smart kid, but socially awkward and not fitting in.

Fortunately, Don's had a lifetime's experience of not fitting in. And he's going to share the solutions with Hudson.

He'll need the help of old friends and new, lock horns with the education system, and face some big questions about himself. As well as opening the world's best cocktail bar.

'Don Tillman is surely one of the most recognisable, distinctive narrators in modern fiction ... While this book is deeper and more thought-provoking than the first, there are many moments of humour and unexpected joy ...

“Disappointing”

I was really looking forward to reading this book after I had enjoyed the other two in the series as I felt they dealt with the subject of a person with Aspergers with great warmth and humour. However, I started this... More
