The Rosie Result - Graeme Simsion

Title: The Rosie Result
Author: Graeme Simsion
Series: Don Tillman #3
Publisher: Michael Joseph


‘The phone call signalling an escalation in the Hudson Adjustment Problem came at 10:18 a.m. on a Friday morning . . .’

Meet Don Tillman, the genetics professor with a scientific approach to everything. But he’s facing a set of human dilemmas tougher than the trickiest of equations.

Right now he is in professional hot water after a lecture goes viral; his wife of 4,380 days, Rosie, is about to lose the research job she loves; and – the most serious problem of all – their eleven-year-old son, Hudson, is struggling at school. He’s a smart kid, but socially awkward-not fitting in.

Fortunately, Don’s had a lifetime’s experience of not fitting in. And he’s going to share the solutions with Hudson. He’ll need the help of old friends and new, lock horns with the education system, and face some big questions about himself. As well as opening the world’s best cocktail bar.

Big-hearted, hilarious and exuberantly life-affirming, The Rosie Result is a story of overcoming life’s obstacles with a little love and a lot of overthinking.

[My Review]

This brilliant trilogy finishes with an equally enjoyable, entertaining read that returns us to the world of Don Tillman and his family – wife Rosie and son Hudson, who seems to share many similarities in personality with Don.

The book is a light-hearted (though emotional at times) look at life through Don’s eyes, as he struggles with work, family and friendship issues plus a variety of unfortunate/ unlucky events that only Don could find himself in!

I really enjoyed the first two books in the series – The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect – and although I think the first is still my favourite of the three, The Rosie Result finishes off a brilliant series in style, and with the same heartwarming personality that made the first two such favourites of mine! Definitely worth a read for fans – go to number one and work your way through if you’re new to the series, you won’t regret it!

[Rating: 4.5/5]

Many thanks to Michael Joseph for providing a copy of this book on which I chose to write an honest and unbiased review.
