So good to be in Don Tillman's head again! Still the most unique and compelling lead character I have ever read.
‘The Rosie Result’ is the third book in the Don Tillman trilogy by Australian author Graeme Simsion. Other than job applications and performance reviews, life is virtually perfect for Don, Rosie and young Hudson in New York.
Yet fast forward eight months and a job-related transfer to Melbourne has unsettled Hudson, now eleven... which now Don rates this the most severe of the five problems that he has identified as affecting his overall contentment.
From page one, Don is in fine voice and his one liners and unique perspective of the world makes this unputdownable...
Rosie as always is a great foil to Don’s uniqueness ...
“I said when I married you that I was expecting constant craziness, so I'd be letting us both down if I said no.”
While Don provides the reader with plenty of humour, Simsion also uses events, and the family’s reaction to them, to explore the myriad of issues surrounding autism.
A highly enjoyable read, just delightful. I shall miss Don, Rosie, Hudson and their friends.
