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...

There are no reviews for this title yet.
I had seen this audiobook months ago and wasn't really that sure about the storyline....it came up again on the suggested listening when I finished another book. The reviews had stacked up and were so positive that I thought I would give it a whirl. It has been wonderfully entertaining. I did wonder if it would be too sad but Don is a high achieving academic so he has already overcome a lot. It does open your eyes in a small way to the constant minefield that life can be when you live with Aspergers. The narration was also excellent. So pleased there is a second book to enjoy!
"I enjoyed so much"
I found the book funny,existing and fresh because of him.
Lots of moments...but if I have to choose one...the trip to New York.
He brought Don to life...I could almost fall in love with him...correct!
When he realises he is in love with her.
One of my favorite books now :-)
"Funny and factual!!"
The narrator of this book truly captures the character Don, very funny (laugh out loud!) in places!
Good easy listen!!!
Absolutely charming. A sweet, affectionate romantic comedy with well-rounded characters. Only downside is that I've powered through it in two days!
"Sweet and Funny"
As Don would say: 'I found this book: Excellent'.
A real gem - add it to the top of your list.
Great listening. really enjoyed all aspects of the book and it brightened the cold winter dog walks up no end.
I was recommended this book last summer, and I'm not disappointed! Quite the opposite - better than I could have hoped.
I really enjoyed the dry humour throughout this book. Don is a great character! This is an easy book to get in to and I would definitely recommend it to others.
"Easy read, but engaging."
Good holiday read. Nice story, well told, well read. Nuff said.
And these are the extra words i have to put in to make the review long enough.
"An easy listen with an unrealistic ending"
It takes no effort to listen to this book. It's short and sweet enough.
No. There's nothing to recommend, and although the portayal of Aspergers started reasonably well, the ending was hideously unrealistic. The love of a woman doesn't cure Aspergers!
It was ok. I did kind of enjoy it, but it annoyed me at the same time. I won't be listening to the sequel.
