Publisher's Summary

Shortlisted for the 2014 Indie Awards

The downloadable, audiobook edition of Graeme Simsion’s prize-winning romantic comedy The Rosie Project, read by the actor Dan O’Grady.

Meet Don. Don is a genetics professor who just might be somewhere on the autistic spectrum. He looks a little like Gregory Peck and is getting married. He just doesn’t know who to yet. But he has designed a very detailed questionnaire to help him find the perfect woman. And it’s definitely not Rosie. Absolutely, completely, definitely not .Rosie, meanwhile, isn’t looking for love; she’s looking for her biological father. Sometimes, though, you don’t find love: love finds you...

    Story
    "The Perfect Audio Book"

    Both very funny and very charming, beautifully crafted and exceptionally well delivered. I've just noticed there's a sequal but I don't know if I dare...how can this one be equalled or bettered? Watch this space....

    Story
    "I laughed out loud!"

    Loved it and would highly recommend . I laughed, and cried with Don and Rosie's adventures. It's the grown ups version of the curious incident of the dog in the night

    Story
    "Deliciously lighthearted but sustaining."

    Although written with a clear eye out for instant transition to the screen, who minds? Yes, it foregrounds people with unconventional behavioural traits ( again) but it is a nice foil for even those who prefer the more serious approaches to reading.
    There are numerous instances where we are cajoled to listen with bated breath as the protagonists formulate earnest attempts at Life using whatever props work, or don't work, for them. Courage personified.
    The reader pleasantly blends the utterly tangible, authentic Australianicity of this story with an easy access for anyone to understand.

    Story
    "A charming bit of escapism!"
    Where does The Rosie Project rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a delightful, albeit lightweight, novel that made a long journey much more pleasant. It isn't world shattering literature, but it was certainly worth the time I expended listening to it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters portrayed were interesting and so I found myself, willingly, drawn into a desire to know how things would turn out for them.
    Ummm and I'm also a sucker for unlikely happy endings!


    What does Dan O'Grady bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Dan O'Grady brought the book to life. I'm no longer certain if it was written in the first person but Dan made me believe it was,


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes I smiled almost all of the way through it. Very uplifting!

    Story
    "Marvellous"
    Any additional comments?

    As humans we are pretty rubbish at dealing/treating hidden illnesses like Autism and mental health conditions. This book is told from the insight of someone with Autism, and maybe we can all improve our understanding of autism an other disabilities that are not so obvious through books such as these.

    As someone who suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, I too have been left with personality differences and traits not dissimilar from autism or someone who suffers with aspergers.

    This is a fantastic book, I really learned a lot. Now on to the rosie effect :)

    Story
    "Excellent"

    I didn't know anything about this book, but bought it on the strength of the numerous good reviews. Am so glad I did - it is funny, romantic, and with a real warmth at the heart of it. Super narrator, who brings out all the humour in a wonderfully deadpan manner. Just brilliant.

    Story
    "Believably unbelievable!"

    This story may seem unbelievable to some listeners but having been married for a short while to somebody very like Don, I found the story quite believable. In addition it was funny, charming but one thing I don't believe - people don't change!

    Story
    "The Ups & Downs of Don's search for a wife"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - at times the book was laugh out loud funny. A great portrait of the ups and downs search for a wife by Don, his systematic approach and how that affects and changes his life and relationships.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Don - he is key to the whole book and his attitudes and reactions have unexpected consequences.


    Which character – as performed by Dan O'Grady – was your favourite?

    As the story is told in the first person by Don then Dan captured his personality and voiced him perfectly.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It often made me laugh but at times it was deeply touching and moving.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the story so much I bought the paperback version as a birthday present for a friend who isn't on Audible.
