Reviews

`Don Tillman and Rose Jarman are fiction's most unlikely couple but Graeme Simsion's skills with dialogue and tone make them, and their relationship, (just) believable. Hudson, too, is uncomfortably believable. Simsion has mighty intellectual confidence but behind all the steady wit, the rolling jokes, the faux innocence and the cocktail instruction, this is a thoughtful and provocative novel [with] a grand design that will have relevance in the lives of many individual readers...Accomplished novel, mission accomplished.' -- Helen Elliott * Age *
`[Don Tillman] has almost transcended the boundaries of fiction to become a geek icon.' * Guardian *
`One of the most endearing, charming and fascinating literary characters I have met in a long time.' * The Times *
`This third novel feels like a reunion of old friends. With Graeme Simsion's trademark style-his witty dialogue, clever banter and simple plot lines-we are plunged once again into Don Tillman's eccentric personality and his rather odd but endearing manner of getting things done...The book is peppered with people who actually have autism (or who are autistic: important distinction to some), or people who appear to display autistic traits, and the wider issue of tolerance and the acceptance of difference is illustrated by the characters themselves...The Rosie Result is very funny...Thought-provoking statements punctuate the story, designed to make us, the readers, think and rethink our position or views...This is a light-hearted-and big-hearted-read that nevertheless deals with some important issues.' * Cass Moriarty *
'While heartily readable, light and uplifting, this book will leave you to ruminate over a particularly prickly question - is it best practice to give the "correct" labels to our differences, even in the very young, or do we condemn those at an incredibly vulnerable stage of life to forever be seen, and to see themselves, through the prism of disability?' * Booktopia *
`The publication and success of The Rosie Project is one of the remarkable stories of recent Australian publishing. This was added to by the publication of its sequel, The Rosie Effect, and now this final instalment, The Rosie Result...Graeme Simsion has, with the Rosie books, written the perfectly balanced trilogy. In The Rosie Project, we are engaged immediately by Don Tillman; The Rosie Effect allows us to get to know Rosie more; and in The Rosie Result we cheer for all three-Don, Rosie and Hudson-as they develop their family life...The Rosie trilogy is deserving of the accolades it has garnered and The Rosie Result is the best possible goodbye to the world of Don Tillman.' * Mary Dalmau *
`The comedy is still there but there's a philosophical seriousness to this one, which brings the whole issue much closer to home. I liked it very much and I recommend it.' * The Bookshelf, Radio National *
`It is an ambitious task: writing a light and engaging novel while incorporating a serious topic in an inclusive manner. But Simsion pulls it off, maintaining a strong sense of characterisation and narrative, all the while encouraging readers to question their own values.' * Conversation *
`For a read that appears light on the surface, The Rosie Result contains a lot of depth, and makes one think a lot about identity, about the influence of the "school years" on future life, and about the friends that we choose. It challenges preconceptions about those who are different, and also encourages acceptance: both of others and your own identity... the strongest book in the series, and a very fitting finale.' * Reader NZ *
As an autistic advocate and author I loved how Graeme Simsion approached the topic of autism. It resonated with my own experience...There was lots of humour but also some deep thoughts on what it means it be autistic and indeed what it means to be human. * Jeanette Purkis *
Graeme Simsion breaks open the `A' word by smashing preconceived prejudices and stereotypes * Kathy Hoopmann, author of All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome *
`It's the third, it's the last...it's also, arguably, though, the most accomplished.' * Radio 2SER Bookclub *
