  1. I have to thank you for this book so much. A coworker recommended it to me as a fun read back in January; on January 27, my father collapsed in a parking lot and died of cardiac arrest. He was revived with CPR and brought to the hospital, where he spent two weeks unconscious in the ICU. I drove the 5 hours to be with him, and back, a few times that month. His doctors stressed to us that he might not survive, and if he did, he would likely not fully recover or be the same person we once knew. I downloaded the audio version of The Rosie Project. On the drives and while sitting with him, this book was exactly what I needed to add some levity. I needed to laugh, I needed to hear a good story about friendship and love, and I needed to think about something that wasn’t grim. I also loved the Australian accent of the narrator. Thank you for keeping me company. Dad, by the way, came through what he calls “the ordeal,” and is doing so well. He’s now back to running his book store!

  2. Hi. I loved this book and, after someone pointed out the similarities, kept seeing Don Tillman being played by the actor who plays “Sheldon” on the Big Bang Theory. I did find one typo that I wanted to point out for reprints — on page 177 of the hardback version, the last paragraph starts, “The gas station was open. so I …..” I believe the period between “open” and “so” should actually be a comma.

    Thank you and I look forward to reading your future works!

    • Thanks for pointing that out – the editors obviously missed it first time around in the US versioning (in Australian English it was ‘the service station’ – it’s been fixed for the paperback edition. The sequel The Rosie Effect will be published early next year, I believe, in the US. And you’re not the first to point out the similarity with Sheldon Cooper. I’ve never watched TBBT but I think we’re looking at some common attributes of Asperger’s which stand out to neurotypicals because they’re different. That said, I think there are plenty of differences in the two characters once you get past those similarities.

  3. Dear Graeme,
    We, our reading club, red your book Rosie with great pleasure and had fine discussion about it. The only think we couldn’t find out (with certainty) is: who is the father of Rosie?
    Would you be so kind to help us?

    • Remember he tests the blood from the Phil’s Gym shirt and decides he doesn’t need to test any more. He has the solution. So Rosie’s father is Phil. Rosie’s mother thought it was not possible for two blue-eyed parents to have a brown-eyed child, but, as Don explains earlier, it is rare but not impossible. Rosie’s mother DID have a brief affair – with Geoffrey Case – and didn’t tell Rosie because she was too young (and Case had committed suicide) and didn’t tell Phil because Phil was a big footballer who might have taken action…

  4. Thank you from a participant for your Sept 8th workshop ‘Short Fiction’ at Brisbane Writers Festival. Your presentation was enormously generous and you have both widened my horizons and helped me to focus on the skills I need to develop for my writing.
    I have also appreciated this blog. I watched your YouTube ‘Prisoners Dilemma’ with interest because in my speculative fiction novel ‘The Grass Is Always Browner’, Zeus, 2011, my climax has a two-play of the Prisoners’ Dilemma which tests the practical reality of the Ogden Nash multi-play strategy.
