    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.

    Story
    "Heartwarming"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to a friend, it's a lovely story. A fairly easy read with great characters and it leaves you feeing happy. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Don was a great character and watching him slowly falling in love is so sweet. An interesting insight in to the mind of someone who thinks so literally in a world he doesn't quite fit in to.

    Story
    "Don Tillman, a wonderful character..."
    Would you listen to The Rosie Project again? Why?

    I wouldn't listen to The Rosie Project again, as due to personal preference, I don't listen to things more than once. I would say that this book was so good that I am looking forward to its audio sequel, The Rosie Effect.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the character Don Tillman. He is unusual and interesting. He has much more depth than he seems to think and he is very funny and very straight forward. I really warmed to him. I also liked the storyline about the 'Father Project' and the comical places this took the characters.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I have to say, there are so many scenes that i enjoyed, that it would be hard to choose a specific one.


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

    I found this book to be hilarious at times and towards the end of the story there were things that occurred that made me feel pain for some of the characters. Overall I would say this is a funny story, and although it is a love story, it is very unconventional and not at all 'chick lit'.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone. It is a science based love story, told from the voice of a deadpan guy, who clearly has Asperger's and doesn't realise it. His interactions with others, as a result, make for some very amusing scenes throughout. The narrator is very good and i think he really captures the character with his tone and expression.

    Story
    "Not for me"
    What disappointed you about The Rosie Project?

    For a modern day work of fiction I thought that the novel was over packaged. The ending could have been predicted by the mid point of the novel. Found myself hoping it would end.


    What was most disappointing about Graeme Simsion’s story?

    The story line in particular the ending


    What three words best describe Dan O'Grady’s voice?

    Authentic, Normal , Australian. The novel was set in Melbourne so probably having a Scandinavian voice wouldn't work.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Rosie Project?

    The scene where I think he proposes to her in the restaurant. Didn't see the point.

    "Amusing!!"

    I so enjoyed this book and was so sad when it was finally over.

    The book is very heartwarming about a geek who has ASD and seeks a partner. A lovely story, very funny. I loved the characters and it was easy to think of someone that the main character reminds you of.

    So many people have recommended this book and I was not disappointed.

    Story
    "Couldn't wait to get back in the car!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Rosie Project to be better than the print version?

    Have not read book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters and the way the author was able to present/express them so completely.


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

    Unable to split Don or Rosie - both brilliant.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A funny thing happened on the way to my completely planned life...
    Don was not prepared to expect the unexpected. Unexpectedly, he found he was enjoying the journey.


    Any additional comments?

    Graeme Simsion writes a heck of a book! My husband and I were on a holiday and we were hurrying the sightseeing to get back in the car to listen to the story. Very funny.

    Story
    "Thoroughly enjoyable - a great listen"

    This book gave me a great insight into a mind that works completely differently to my own. The lead character is extremely high functioning, probably on the autistic scale and it made me really think about the vast array of people in society. He really grew on me throughout the book and I found myself really rooting for him. I would highly recommend this - you may even find yourself taking the long route to places so you can listen to a bit more!

    Off the wall thinking


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

    Visualization - excellent accent
