"I was standing on one leg shucking oysters when the problems began..."
Don and Rosie are back in Melbourne after a decade in New York, and they're 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. 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 installment of the internationally bestselling series that began with The Rosie Project.
Why Our Staff Love The Only Story:
Graeme Simsion made the world fall madly in love with Don and Rosie with his novel The Rosie Project and its sequel, but sadly all good things must come to an end. It’s therefore a very good thing that The Rosie Result is the perfect ending to this charming and quirky story.
Taking place almost a decade after the events of The Rosie Effect, Don and Rosie have moved back to Melbourne with their son Hudson, who struggles to fit in at school and who they suspect might be autistic. While Rosie leaps into her new role as a medical researcher, Don takes on the challenge of helping his son navigate a world that wasn’t built with people like him in mind. With The Rosie Result, Simsion takes this love story firmly into familial territory but it’s a shift that definitely works - you can’t help but adore these characters more than ever. He tackles difficult subjects with compassion in a book that is joyful and often very funny. If you loved the first two books in this series, you simply cannot miss this one!
