    Story
    (2692)

    Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a "wonderful" husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical - most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver. Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent - and on a quest of her own....

    Margaret says: "A fun listen"
    "This entertained the hard-to-entertain me."

    If you could sum up The Rosie Project in three words, what would they be?

    (so) entertaining
    (so) interesting
    (so) insightful (is that a word?)


    What did you like best about this story?

    I've never found stories featuring characters with Asperger symptoms funny. Someone in my life has the syndrome and life with that person is too difficult to be very funny to me, but The Rose Project's main character is portrayed as working very hard to live a good life and to use his differently wired brain. I recognized the characteristics and was cheered by Don's self-acceptance and his courageous use of his strengths.


    What about Dan O'Grady’s performance did you like?

    I liked Don O'Grady's matter-of-fact delivery. He has a good story to deliver and he does the job, sounding interesting the whole way through.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole story moves me.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll seek out more books by this author and more narration by Don O'Grady. That says a lot about how much I enjoyed this book.
