The Rosie novels

I was a bit sad last night to finish The Rosie Result, the final book in the Don Tillman trilogy. I slowed down as much as I could.

Bill Gates recommended the first in the series – not personally but on his website. He normally recommends non-fiction. So I thought I’d give it a go. I’m glad I picked up The Rosie Project. It was the perfect uplifting book for these gloomy times.

The story is about a genetics professor, Don Tillman, with Asperger’s syndrome.

One of the themes of the books is about being you, being different, and fitting in with your wider world. It’s something that many people could relate to at some time in their lives.

The novels are all funny: there were plenty of times I laughed aloud. Fortunately, I was at home or on a park bench and not on the Tube. All three books have the right amount of humour, tension and drama – and you feel everything is going to work out. The novels are well structured and easy to read.

If you liked Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, I think you’ll enjoy this trilogy.
