Exciting▧ Subject 2 Rosie troublemaker✔ Gender FemaleOh FUCK THAT I'm not a scientist by any means You want to know who Rosie is? ▶ Let me tell you she's an utterly likeable female lead who's going to bring the unexpected in Don's life shatter his numerous believes and stereotypes and make you love her in the process Smart strong minded sarcastic sure of her value as a person the madness she personifies stirs up the winds of freedom in Don's life and damn I enjoyed that something fierce Note that by madness I mean not as overly strict as Don so her description can be applied to any woman who doesn't want to be imprisoned in an artificial straightjacket and loathes that some guys think that women are only good to cook and fuck I say yes to this ▧ Controversies The Butterfly ProblemAt this point you might wonder why I'm only giving it 35 stars The fact is as awesome as I found the idea and the execution of it I felt underwhelmed at times In a word it lacked feels for me As it is I'm able to point that's The Rosie Project is an original and cute read but the butterflies were too rare even if they were here for sure note that several scenes will make you Awww out loud What can I say? I need my shoot at butterflies However I can't deny that the character of Don the fact that's his POV drives this lack of feels so maybe that's the point you know? That's why I rounded up my rating to a 4▧ Results Why should you read this book?Because The Rosie Project is a tale of metamorphose by the acceptance of others for who they truly are and the acceptance of who WE are Can I say? For all his awkwardness and surely because of it Don is an adorable and heartbreaking character whose desire to fit in moved me because the world we're living in doesn't always accept differences and that's a shame in my opinion A fucking huge oneIn a word? Such an originally written cute romance I asked you here tonight because when you realise you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible Last edited June 2016 For of my reviews please visit

An international sensation this hilarious feel good novel is narrated by an oddly charming and socially challenged genetics professor on an unusual uest to find out if he is capable of true loveDon Tillman professor of genetics has never been on a second date He is a man who can count all his friends on the fingers of one hand whose lifelong difficulty with social rituals has convinced him that he is simply not wired for romance So when an acuaintance informs him that he would make a “wonderf This does for Autism what Pretty Woman did for prostitutes It uses it for entertainment it plays on it for laughter It's a 1970's sitcom of a bookThe character of ShelDon feels like little that fan fiction of The Big Bang Theory and Rosie seems like the perfect emulation of The Cool Girl as described in Gone Girl She's too trite and uirky to be believable Don himself is simply a figure of fun he moves form scene to scene for our amusement in a what will he do now? manner as Julia Roberts did in Pretty Woman The book groans plot wise nothing is surprising and though it is an easy read it is an utterly underwhelming oneI spent most of the book thinking of The Perks of Being a Wallflower The Fault in our Stars or The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime books with exceptional narrators that show rather than tell At every stage Don tells He is created simply to move thorough the scenery Given the subject matter the book should have been than a collection of smirk at the autistic dude it's ok cause the author had him say we could seuenceshttpatheistdad74blogspotcomau

The Rosie ProjectUl” husband his first reaction is shock Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone and he embarks upon The Wife Project In the orderly evidence based manner with which he approaches all things Don sets out to find the perfect partner She will be punctual and logical most definitely not a barmaid a smoker a drinker or a late arriverYet Rosie Jarman is all these things She is also beguiling fiery intelligent and on a uest of her own She is looking for What a shameWhat a shame Graeme Simsion wrote this offering uickly and that he went with a comedy rather than a dramaWhat a shame that the opportunity to educate and illuminate was suandered and traded for gratuitous laughs extreme generalisations and blatant stereotypingMy initial delight at realising the subject matter of this book meant I was immediately enrolled in ' the project' A third of the way into the book I became uncomfortable with the tenor and theme The premise that higher functioning individuals on the Autistic Spectrum or anyone for that matter who sits outside societies 'normal' framework accepts their position matter of factly is absurd Don knows he is 'weird' inappropriate and that people make fun of him and the author suggests that Don is OK with it So accepting of ridicule is he that he purposefully resorts to self promotion as the class clown and nutty professor as a means of gaining some form of acceptance or acknowledgment Don tells us that he is an expert at being laughed at but Simsion never let him tell us how he felt about being so Instead the author invites us to laugh along with an inexhaustable number of accounts of 'crazy' behaviours thoughts and incidents throughout this 'comedy' I waited and hoped for for the opportunity to feel Don's pain; but unfortunately his distress sadness vulnerability and loneliness if touched on were labels without feeling what we regular people experience but Asperger individuals according to Simsion only know if they score highly on a uestionnaire The idea that the Don's of this world do not feel the aguish associated with isolation and rejection is no less inaccurate than they are incapable of feeling empathy or knowing how to show loveIn the 1997 movie as Good As It Gets mentioned in The Rosie Project screenwriter Mark Andrus ensures that whilst revealing the prescriptive anxiety provoking world of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder he never loses sight of the anguish and humanity that underscores the day to day reality of a person who fails to conform to societal norms He offers the audience an opportunity to empathise as well as laugh at seemingly 'weird' behaviours of the main character Unfortunately in his 'Rosie Project' Simsion misses the opportunity to be a champion for his protagonist failing to show that although Don is hard wired neurologically to behave and respond in what makes make him a target for ridicule and isolation that his acute awareness of how he is perceived comprimises his inner struggle and peace Even at the end when it seems Don has found happiness and acceptance it was dependant on his adjustment and conformity to societies sensabilitiesObviously I found some positives in this book Well written engaging and with plenty of local flavour being set in Melbourne making for an enjoyable read The insights offered about the inconsistencies of what society accepts of human behaviour depending on who you are or your position in life were welcomed I also felt heartened that along with laughing at Don the audience were also shown that if you move beyond the visible and audible irregularities of a person we all have something to offer; that we all have value and strengths and all deserve respect and to be treated with dignity I hope that maybe some readers will also see beyond the comedy to the human side and perhaps even accept that maybe we 'neurotypicals' all need to change a little tolerate a little bit and accept a different way of seeing things so that the marginalised in society can fit in a little bit I share my life with a 'Don' and I think 'the Rosie Project' has not done his cause any favours and does not represent him faithfully with respect or the humanity he deserves Again What a shame
