    Story
    "A very surprising gem"
    Would you listen to The Rosie Project again? Why?

    This book was genuinely funny laugh out loud on occasion but gentle and interesting as well. Certainly far fetched but that is a prime reason for reading or listening to books for me.The characters were 'extremes' but that added to the impact. i have little doubt i will listen again


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

    Has overtones of 'Dog in the night time' but comparison is tenuous


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    loved the whole bar tender episode clever and very funny


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

    laugh at a rather different story of romance

    Story
    "Qwerky book"

    When I started to read the book you really wonder where it is going. But before yu notice it you are deep into this character. Maybe he had more than one trait of my husband so found it quaintly amusing.

    Story
    "My favourite audiobook to date"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved this audio book. The characters are so likable, it is funny, and it is feelgood. I wished it could have been longer!


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

    Don was my favourite character. I loved listening to him grow as a person, and make personal gains with his social skills. The character was very well written and narrated, with the classic 'say whatever comes into your head' attitude.

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

    I would recommend to anyone. It is a light story, but that treats a serious condition such as autism and how this can affect an adult with a mild type of autism.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the whole clumsiness and the lack of social etiquette of the main male character. His way of thinking in how to find the perfect partner and the result of the experiment.


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

    The scientist one ( I cannot remember his name as I read a while ago and I am terrible with names.)


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

    Would you care to marry a socially challenged person? I promise you will not regret.

    Story
    "A funny lighthearted view of Asperger's syndrome"
    If you could sum up The Rosie Project in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, heartwarming, addictive


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

    None.


    What about Dan O'Grady’s performance did you like?

    He got it spot on, he was the main character, He made it all very believable


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

    I've now listened to this book 3 times. I am waiting for the author's next work. For the first time in a long time, I have found a book theat has me giggling all the way through. Pretty much all the characters are believable and as the story sometimes gets a little far fetched, you do get the distinct impression that this could happen to this unusual but very likeable character.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book to anyone. I'm not a review writer normally but felt compelled to share what an excellent listen this book is... Superb - can't wait for the next book by this author.

    What did you like most about The Rosie Project?

    This was a very humorous book which I enjoyed immensely. It made me laugh and at times had me on the verge of tears.

    Don because he reminded me of my dad. From his perspective everything made sense, but to everyone else he was just odd.

    It's different from most generic books, interesting twists and great characters.
