    Story
    "loved it utterly!"

    I wasn't sure if I would enjoy this book, and for the first couple of moments the narrator's australian voice jarred a little, but then I realised it was as perfect as the whole book.
    I fell in love with Don, the dysfunctional protagonist, and with all the characters. I work in academia so the University setting felt so real and honest!

    I can only recommend that you get this and fall in love with Don, or Rosie, or all of them!
    Brilliant book!

    Story
    "Sheldon Cooper from TBBT searching for wife"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would. Basically I would recommend it to anyone, but especially to the ones who are familiar with The Big Bang Theory show.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that the main character reminded me of Sheldon Cooper from the aforementioned show.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I laughed when someone came in the room when he was trying out the kama sutra positions on a doll. Ok, this seems like a weird reply so I'll just pretend I didn't write that :)


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

    Geek.find(wife);


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to it, you'll like it.

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

    Hilarious

    Story
    "Endearing but believable"
    What made the experience of listening to The Rosie Project the most enjoyable?

    The slightly nasal Australian narrator and the quirks of Don, the protagonist. Entirely believable for someone on the autism spectrum.


    Have you listened to any of Dan O'Grady’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No, but this was good.


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

    The upside of autism

    Story
    "Hilarious and heartfelt; a wonderful experience!"
    If you could sum up The Rosie Project in three words, what would they be?

    Hilarious and heartfelt


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Seeing the main character develop and being able to identify and understand his purely logical actions made him the best character in the book by far!


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

    He perfectly delivers the comedy lines with just the right style.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it kept me wanting more.


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't expecting to enjoy this (it being a king of romcom) but after reading other people's comments I gave it a go and very glad I did!!

    Story
    "David Lodge eat your heart out"
    What did you like most about The Rosie Project?

    This is an almost perfect novel with gems in almost every aspect. The mix of Asbergers, genetics, romance and academia shouldn't work but it does, in spades


    What other book might you compare The Rosie Project to, and why?

    Any David Lodge novel


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The scenes were seamless and so impossible isolate any particular one.


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

    See above


    Any additional comments?

    A novel which leaps into 'most favourite in 2014' so far. The reader did his job superbly and the story kept me so absorbed that I missed the M6 because I was chortling so much!

    Story
    "Laugh out loud ... written with insight!"

    I loved all aspects of this book; the story line which I found original as it gave brilliant insights into the outlook of a person on the Asperger continuum whilst providing much amusement - the narrator did a great job too. I finished this book within 3 days and insisted on my teenage daughter listening to some excerpts which were hilarious. We have since shared some separate 'Project Rosie' amusement when listening to interactions around us thus indicating the lasting impact of the novel - more soon please!

    Story
    "Great Story, really loved it!"
    Where does The Rosie Project rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favourite books for a long time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Don is such an interesting character, you really get into his 'unusual' mind and can totally understand him and his difficulty in relating to people.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I couldn't wait to get back to this book as I was always dying to know what happened next. Also it was easy to pick up where you left off.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, funny, sad, interesting and a real insight to how people with autism think and view the world and deal with their limitations and also their sometimes far reaching intelligence!

    Story
    "What a fantastic book!"

    I decided to have a change from my usual fantasy/dragons/magicians/etc. and stumbled across this gem. I'm not one for romantic slush but this is rather different from your average love story. I was laughing a lot on my way to and from work, and nearly crying at one point. I don't want to spoil the story so will just say You Must Try This Book!!
