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. Hilarious and thought-provoking, with a brilliant cast of characters and an ending that will have readers cheering for joy, The Rosie Result is the triumphant final instalment of the internationally bestselling series that began with The Rosie Project.

Review quote

`Deals with issues of nature, nurture, gender, free will and the vagaries of the human heart with a deceptively light touch.' * Evening Standard * `The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect have sold a whopping total of five million copies. Now the Melbourne author returns with Don and Rosie back in Australia and their boy Hudson struggling to fit in at school.' * Herald Sun * `A very intelligent, challenging yet profoundly funny (and profoundly serious...) study of difference.' -- Lee Koffman * Goodreads * `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 * `One of the most endearing, charming and fascinating literary characters I have met in a long time.' * The Times * `[Don Tillman] has almost transcended the boundaries of fiction to become a geek icon.' * Guardian *
