What to expect

The downloadable, audiobook edition of Graeme Simsion's prize-winning romantic comedy The Rosie Project, read by the actor Dan O'Grady.

Meet Don.

Don is a genetics professor who just might be somewhere on the autistic spectrum.
He looks a little like Gregory Peck and is getting married.
He just doesn't know who to yet.

But he has designed a very detailed questionnaire to help him find the perfect woman.

And it's definitely not Rosie.
Absolutely, completely, definitely not.

Rosie, meanwhile, isn't looking for love; she's looking for her biological father.
Sometimes, though, you don't find love: love finds you...

Don Tillman is my favourite new protagonist in all of contemporary fiction. This man will exasperate, delight and immerse you in a world so original, in a story so compelling, I defy you not to read through the night. Glorious

As you start reading this extraordinary work, there's no doubt that unlikely hero Don Tillman is about to take the world if not by storm, then certainly by rational argument... Laugh-out loud funny, poignant and so ingenious and compelling you feel as if you want to jump into the world of the novel and join in

One of the quirkiest, most adorable novels I've come across... Don Tillman is such a fantastic, lovable, geeky character that you're cheering for him from page one... Thoughtful and fun, very different and utterly charming - a brilliant first novel

NZ Herald on Sunday

Funny, charming and heart-warming, this debut is a gem of a novel about a rather awkward university professor's search for love. I loved this unconventional romance
