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...

    "One for the Top Ten list"
    Would you listen to The Rosie Project again? Why?

    Yes, definitely.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm only half way through and I'm loving it. I have already recommended it to so many people. It's laugh out loud funny, and at the same time gives a clever, sensitive insight into Asperberger's syndrome. A lovely story without being soppy - a romance that's not just for 'chicks'.

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

    Yes, it's an amusing light read with loveable characters


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character Donald and the portrayal of his aspergers. I love the way Donald makes sense of the world, his coping strategies and the insight he has into his aspergers.


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

    Loved his Australian accent and his robotic voice which appropriate to the character

    A touching and hilarious

    Story
    "A slow start, but amusing!"
    Would you listen to The Rosie Project again? Why?

    Yes, the plot develops slowly and you can tell what is eventually going to happen, but you have to wait out for the when and what Don is going to get up-to along the way. He reminds me of someone I know who lives in this kind of regime, and the comparisons at times just made me laugh thinking of their behavioural similarities


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Rosie Project?

    The realisation that his questionnaire wasn't everything in life


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

    this is the first time I have listened to Dan O'Grady, he reads at a nice steady pace.


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

    At first no, but as the story progressed I wanted to listen to more so I could hear what would happen next.

    "Laugh out loud"
    What made the experience of listening to The Rosie Project the most enjoyable?

    My Mum recommended this book to me, which doesn't happen often, and I absolutely loved it. I found it witty and clever, a great, easy listen, and it made a pleasant change from all the ancient roman fiction I've been listening to lately. Download it!

    Story
    "Just lovely"

    A very well written and narrated story about a very intelligent autistic man's search for a partner. Don knows he is different and as time has gone on, has played to his differences. Don wants a wife so sets about looking for a suitable partner in a scientific way. Rosie is disillusioned about men and is not looking for a husband, she wants to find her biological father as she feels very let down by her step father. This is a love story with a real difference. Don doesn't know what love is, Rosie cannot see that actions speak louder than words. I really enjoyed this book and was so sad when it came to an end. Read this for a good story and an insight in to autism that dispels the myth that people on the autistic spectrum don't have feelings. I will look out for this author again.
