The Rosie Project 2016-08-01


Mxi submitted a new resource:

The Rosie Project - Light hearted well-written book about aspie professor and Rosie. Written from aspie perspective

Great book written from aspie point of view. Book is a 'quick read'. It's funny and treats the subject of autism and Autistic people with respect. I suspect the author is an aspie because of the many times I said "...Yeah that happens to me too!"

Book can be bought or borrowed from many libraries. I accessed this book as an audiobook.

Doesn't it make you wonder how someone so socially inept can be so professionally successful? For my part, I lost a job for screwing up a research project, so that puts paid to any thought of doing a PhD.
I searched 'rosie project' on the forum and nothing came up but then I happened upon this post by chance.

So, I'd like to second the recommendation of this book. I didn't realise it was about a man with aspergers when I started it but very soon I was saying to myself 'hold on...what's this?' :p I can't remember if autism or aspergers is even directly stated..but you know.

Anyway the protagonist is a fellow looking for love and though I don't generally go for romance this was a bit different. I think many would enjoy it, male and female. It was light and fun and left me feeling good.
