“Fortunately I am accustomed to inadvertently creating humour,” Professor Don Tillman states when his phone conversation causes his genetics class to burst into laughter.
The story is hilarious, yet wonderfully moving. The main character/narrator is totally engaging. This is because he recognizes his differences, but is undefeated by them.
Author Graeme Simsion, an Aussie IT consultant successfully reveals Tillman’s social awkwardness without making fun of him, making The Rosie Project a compassionate mirror to Aspies the world over.
A good friend gave me this book saying she wanted me to have it because she thought I could relate very well to the main character. And I did. Apparently many other people do as well, as the book to date has been published in 74 countries and many languages.
This book is great for anyone 16 years of age and older, for Aspies, parents and relatives of Aspies, and those who just plain like a good read.
Rosie’s language is not always pristine, but she is a very enjoyable character.
Buy it. Or persuade your local library to get it in. You’ll like it!
