about

Don and Rosie are about to face their most important project. Their son, Hudson, is having trouble at school: his teachers say he isn't fitting in with the other kids, and they'd like Don and Rosie to think about getting an autism assessment. As his parents debate whether a diagnosis might help or hinder, Hudson has his own ideas. Meanwhile, Rosie is battling Judas at work, and Don is in hot water after the Genetics Lecture Outrage. The life-contentment graph, recently at its highest point, is curving downwards. For Don Tillman, geneticist and World's Best Problem-Solver, learning to be a good parent as well as a good partner will require the help of friends old and new. It will mean letting Hudson make his way in the world, and grappling with awkward truths about his own identity. And opening a cocktail bar.
Graeme Simsion is the internationally bestselling author of The Rosie Project, The Rosie Effect and The Best of Adam Sharp. He also co-authored Two Steps Forward with Anne Buist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Third Don Tillman book I adored Graeme Simsion's novel The Rosie Project, the first book that introduced us to Don Tillman. (my review) The Rosie Result is the third book chronicling Don's life. And life has moved on. He and Rosie have moved back to Australia - along with their eleven year old son Hudson. And you know that old saying - like father, like son? Well, Don and Hudson fit that description. But....is Hudson really autistic? Rosie and Don debate over having a formal diagnosis done. In the meantime, Don's latest project is to help Hudson fit into his new school and environment. I truly like Don and his take on life. This latest book only cements that opinion. Hudson is just well drawn. I enjoyed seeing life from Hudson's viewpoint as he attempts to circumnavigate friendship, bullying, sports, academics, social norms and all the other things that go with with making your way through life. I did find the behaviour of the school towards Hudson to be upsetting. But I applaud Don and Rosie's advocating on his behalf. Don and Rosie are also having difficulties - especially with work. Don of course comes up with a brilliant idea - opening a bar to take advantage of their cocktail making talents. His problem solving skills are always ingenious and for the most part effective. Although there are a few that don't go quite as planned - the video clips of animals mating for sex-ed purposes is one example. Supporting cast members from previous books also end up in Australia. Dave is a perennial favourite of mine. I must admit, I didn't really like Rosie in the second book. I'm happy to say that she has redeemed herself in this latest and is much kinder. The Rosie Result is by turns humorous, eye-opening and heart warming. Those who have have enjoyed the previous two books will enjoy catching up with Rosie and Don and meeting Hudson. I did. I wonder if there will be another book in the future for Don as Hudson grows up. I think the book could have been shortened up a bit. It comes in at 386 pages and I did find that some situations were re-hashed and began to feel repetitive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Series The three part series featuring scientist Don Tillman, beginning with the wonderful "The Rosie Project", concludes with "The Rosie Result". While not as humourous as "The Rosie Project", "The Rosie Result" sums up Don's experiences dealing with his quirks and how they have affected his relationship with wife Rosie, son Hudson and his friends and colleagues. For those familiar with the autism spectrum this book confirms the challenges experienced by such individuals; for those unfamiliar with the challenges faced by autism (or any other differences), this book puts such challenges and experiences in perspective. A very good read.

Editorial Reviews

Simsion hits just the right balance between serious literary exploration of social issues and the delightfully humorous (mis)adventures of an unusual but good-intentioned modern family." - New York Journal of Books "Simsion is, as ever, funny without unfairly poking fun, and deeply empathetic toward the flaws and weirdness that everyone carries inside. Charming, eloquent, and insightful, The Rosie Result is a triumphant conclusion to Don's story, one that celebrates this remarkable father, husband, and friend in all his complexity and brilliance." - Booklist [starred]"Don's voice is particular - his intelligence extraordinary - and he is oblivious of how funny he is. His relationships with others are unique and excellently written... Although The Rosie Result centers on Hudson and Don, each character in it transforms in their own way... Simsion's novel depicts autism in such unremarkable ways that its story becomes remarkable in the telling." - Foreword Reviews "[V]ery much a charmer... with everything coming to a proper close. A fitting end to this delightful trilogy that doesn't pull punches." - Kirkus "
