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...

    "Great fun"

    Loved everything and everyone, superbly read and overall just a great tale. I laughed uncontrollably at times.
    I listened while I cooked and drove and basically anywhere I could. I was out of control!
    I have worked with awkward people and this was a welcome inclusion of a section of people largely ignored.
    Don is now a personal friend.
    Excellent book, I hope there is more to come
    Thanks and praise

    "Better than reading it !!"

    Excellent narration. Excellent humour. Perfect explanation of different human characteristics and individual behaviours. I love audio books, but have previously found reading the original books gives most pleasure. This one is different!
    The narrator gives exactly the right emphasis on words, statements, feelings etc. His voice is "easy listening", and the sedate speed he uses allows you to understand and appreciate the meaning behind the words and thoughts.
    STORY: a lovely story that swiftly makes you warm to the main character. His lifestyle is so weird and unbelievable, but it makes perfect sense. Once Rosie comes on the scene, its really enjoyable seeing how he overcomes his control issues......and then you just want them to make a match of it.
    Even if you have already read the book, I would recommend this audio version. An excellent listen.

    "Delightful!"

    Definitely not my usual choice of book but there were so many great reviews from others who said the same that I was persuaded to give it a go and am so glad I did. A lovely book perfectly narrated and enjoyed from start to finish.

    Story
    "We don't always know what we want."
    If you could sum up The Rosie Project in three words, what would they be?

    well worth reading


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

    The restaurant closely followed by the deans room meeting.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    I laughed all the way through. This is an excellent book with subtle humour. A great read. This is an original story I really recommend it.


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

    Its a bit long to read in one go but it is a book to read again. Excellent


    Any additional comments?

    An original story beautifully read. I rate it in my top ten.

    Story
    "Really good!"

    An interesting story in a very engaging appreciable style. Inside each one of us, there's a Donald, lots of peculiarities, difficulties, and talents. It's important, however, for Donald to learn how to deal with his needs and try to be flexible enough to accommodate a very beautiful person into his life. The story is amazing, the jokes are funny, the characters entertaining! Simply a beautiful easy read. Highly recommended.

    "Brilliant, funny and moving"

    Couldn't stop listening, the story is just brilliant and well read. I can completely relate to the frustration that Rosie has towards Don, but underneath it all the love that she has for him.
