Aspergers Cliche? No, I loved it!

I started listening to this and thought oh no, here we go, Curious Incident... revisited. But it grabbed me. I rapidly found myself brightening up at the thought of my next opportunity to rejoin Don and Rosie. Wondered what they were up to while my back was turned. It is a light romance superbly done, and the themes explored apply to us all. This book could have so easily have been a clod-hopper, but it was a very elegant dip into what makes for solid relationships and the myriad things that can trip us up. I had a smile on my face pretty much from go to whoa.

Delightfully different!

What made the experience of listening to The Rosie Project the most enjoyable?

The story was so different to anything I've read (the only other book related to an autistic character was Mark Haddon's The curious incident of the dog in the night-time). I loved how he saw the world -- it really made me think about how I see the world and how others might see it.


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

There were many moments that made me smile. When he tried to think like a 'normal' person and in the end insulted Rosie. So bittersweet! And the DNA collections were just hilarious.


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

No. Loved his narration.


Who was the most memorable character of The Rosie Project and why?

Don, obviously.


Any additional comments?

This is one of those books that I started listening to with no expectations and in the end loved it.
