Synopsis (Goodreads)

Review
It is official… I have never laughed at a book as much as I laughed at The Rosie Project. Everything about this book was perfect. I loved the way that Simsion wrote and portrayed our main character Don throughout the whole novel.

When we are first introduced to Don, we are shown that his brain doesn’t quite work in the same way as everyone else’s does, but this was written in such a believable way that, while it is obvious that he is different, you start to think of him as a character like no other.

Overall, this was a great debut novel and I am looking forward to seeing what else Simsion produces in the future.
