having autism, is medication the answer, should the individual with autism be made to fit in or should society accept them as they are I think I enjoyed this final book in the trilogy the most out of the three It is a very satisfactory conclusion and leaves the reader with the sense that the future for Don and his little family is all well.Thanks to Text Publishing for the opportunity to read and

Both parents are conflicted.Due to a kerfuffle at the university, Don takes one year off without pay That allows him to embark on the Hudson Project. The Hudson Project is made up of issues that need addressing, in order to guarantee Hudson s acceptance in high school and general wellbeing Some of those include helping Hudson making friends increasing his competency with regards to catching a ball and other useful skills and so on Over the years, Don has learnt the importance of a good support system and he makes the most of his friends skills and expertise Don Tillman is one hell of a problem solver I loved his methodical and logical approach to obtaining results He s a very involved father And a businessman, and a cocktail maker He excels in many other areas Who said that people on the spectrum are one horse ponies If I have one criticism is that Don is better than most men I ve come across, neurotypical or otherwise but I ll let it pass, as this is a novel, not a non fiction account Graeme Simsion is one clever cookie He addresses quite complex issues regarding Autism spectrum diagnosis that comes with the added benefit of being labelled as autistic and people making assumptions Of course, the flipside is that by having a diagnostic one can excuse explain certain behaviours We are introduced to a couple of opposing views when it comes to interventions, even to Autism activists Other issues touched upon are the double standards working mothers encounter, the ingrained sexism anti vaxing and anti doctors attitudes Thanks , America While this is a light read, there s a lot to ponder and learn In conclusion, it was a joy to see what Don Tillman was up to now that he was a father Without a doubt, he is one of my favourite literary male characters We need Don Tillmans in this world.Many thanks to Text Publishing for sending me a copy of this novel And congratulations to the cover designer s flag 39 likesLike

school Wanting his son to avoid the social isolation he felt at school and as a young man, Don decides the solution is to devise the Hudson project with steps to help Hudson develop life skills that will make him fit in better and make friends Of course, in typical Don style this leads to many humorous situations and also a realisation that Hudson is quite capable of working out solutions to his own problems.I loved being back in Don s world where the lines between neuro typical and atypical are blurred Don fights anyone labelling his son or himself and Simsion has us questioning whether Hudson shouldn t just be left alone to be his quirky and lovable self without having to conform to what the school and society wants him to be Simsion has a very light touch dealing with a number of different issues that affect families and their children vaccination, violence, friendship, bullying, lying and forgiveness and provides us with a lot to think about but also to laugh at As Hudson

in the Don Tillman trilogy by best selling Australian author and playwright, Graeme Simsion But for job applications and performance reviews, life is virtually perfect for Don, Rosie and young Hudson in New York A mere eight months later, a job related return to Melbourne has unsettled Hudson, now eleven, and Don rates this the most severe of the five problems that he has identified as affecting his overall contentment It needs some drastic action, and Don has learned from experience to present the solution to Rosie before implementing it, but Rosie has always considered problem solving as one of Don s strengths I said when I married you that I was expecting constant craziness, so I d be letting us both down if I said no We re a professor of genetics and a mental health researcher and we re going to open a cocktail bar and fly in a refrigeration engineer from New York Of course we are And surprisingly, this is a big stride towards the solution of all five problems but, of course, nothing is simple As Don learns how to be the father of a very individual pre teen boy, he soon realises that his own expertise in growing up different will not suffice, and he will have to outsource The Hudson Project he calls on his friends all six of them and they willingly contribute, proving the truth of the adage it takes a village to raise a child Hudson learns that the world, unfortunately, requires those who are different to conform, but does it have to be that way While Don provides the reader with plenty of humour, Simsion also uses events, and the family s reaction to them, to explore the myriad of issues surrounding autism, many of which might be applicable to other conditions or life preferences He has unqualified observers giving their expert opinion an autism activist taking issue with accepted terminology friends on the spectrum warning of the potential adverse effects of a diagnosis for Hudson , even as Don is advised by neurotypical to himself get a diagnosis to use in his defence the debate on treatment autonomy is also touched on.From page one, Don is in fine voice and the snickers, giggles and laugh out loud moments that his statements are likely to frequently cause will mean it would be prudent not to read this novel in the quiet carriage on public transport Rosie, too, is in excellent form, proving herself a capable mother to a surprisingly mature son, and the sexism that she encounters daily from her boss is cleverly dealt with.While this third installment could stand alone, there are many references to characters and events from the first two novels, so readers new to Don and Rosie ought to begin their enjoyment with The Rosie Project Hugely entertaining but also thought provoking a wonderful read flag 17

have children and parent like they don t have a job.So, Don decides to take a time out from academic life to focus on the Hudson Project to help his son adjust to all the new changes in his life But with Don being Don he could not sit still for long and gets involved in the launch of a new bar but it s not just any kind of bar.There is a lot of focus on what it means to be on the autism spectrum, much than in the other two books It s said that people with autism lacks empathy for neurotypicals yet neurotypicals never adjust their own empathy for those with autism.I loved being back in the world of Don and Rosie but I enjoyed the first two just a little bit than this one.This is a sweet and very quick read that s perfect for the holidays.Netgalley ARC Expected Publish Date 05 Feb 2019

was intrigued and knowing nothing about this book or its author, read the blurb on the back and thought a socially awkward genetics professor looking for love via a comprehensive survey sounded rather humourous Thus my Rosie journey began And what a fantastic one it s been From Don s early adventures and mishaps trying to find his true love, which he does in the form of feisty and highly intelligent Rosie Jarman, to his new life navigating parenthood in this final book, it is clear to see how rich his life has become since the first book This is significantly highlighted by the addition of his now 11 year old son, Hudson, or perhaps Mini Don , who faces several challenges of his own in mainstream education, forcing Don to confront his own perception of himself and his abilities in his quest to guide Hudson through his adolescent years and prepare him for adult life Of course he isn t alone in this as he has his tribe around him in the form of many beloved characters that have entered Don s life at various points throughout the three books.What is so great about this book is that it covers so many important topics, with autism being the most prominent of course and even explicitly discussed in this book than in the previous books Combine this with a look at diversity, gender roles, bullying, juggling motherhood with full time career, domestic violence and science versus alternative medicine, and you have a lot of food for thought on the table Upon reaching the end of The Rosie Trilogy, I couldn t help but feel like there should be wristbands with the letters WWDD written on them What would Don Do a tribute to his unique problem solving abilities I would go so far as to also suggest that Don and even Hudson are representative of

things have changed One of the main plot points and selling points of the book is now Don has a son, and it sparks a lot of conversation and hilarity around understanding and establishing your own sense of identity The reason why I say this may be my favourite book in the series, is that it isn t just an amusing tale following someone who I definitely consider one of the best characters in

partner Rosie Jarman in the popular books The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect The much awaited final book in the series, The Rosie Result Text Publishing 2019 returns us to these colourful characters, this time with the introduction of their 11 year old son, Hudson Set amidst the family s return to Australia after a decade in New York, this third novel feels like a reunion of old friends With Graeme Simsion s trademark style his witty dialogue, clever banter and simple plotlines we are plunged once again into Don Tillman s eccentric personality and his rather odd but endearing manner of getting things done But while the previous books skirted around the issue of Don s behaviour, this instalment tackles the elephant in the room head on The story is a much stronger and nuanced exploration of autism and Asperger Syndrome, and deals with it in a much direct way Don and Rosie s son, Hudson, is not fitting in at school and struggling with questions around identity and self worth, similar to the problems that Don faced growing up, but he and Rosie are determined to negotiate Hudson s difficulties with sensitivity than Don received as a young person And so begins The Hudson Project, wherein Don in typical Don Tillman style makes a list of the problems he must address and then sets about solving them in an orderly and efficient way The issue is viewed in terms of brain configuration, genetics and possibly environmental factors, and all are given equal scope The book is peppered with people who actually have autism or who are autistic important distinction to some , or people who appear to display autistic traits, and the wider issue of tolerance and the acceptance of difference is illustrated by the characters themselves Throughout the story, the author gives examples of common misconceptions about people with autism, and standard benchmarks used to diagnose them It also turns all of these upside down with the exceptions that break the rules The Rosie Result is very funny and much of the humour, as in the previous books in the series, is a result of misunderstandings or miscommunications around Don s behaviour and his manner of interacting with others his directness, his tendency to be very literal, and his single mindedness Ten years on, his other traits are also still in evidence his kindness, his generosity, his empathy and his willingness to help others In combination, this means he and Rosie are very keen to assist Hudson overcome his problems but at the same time are unsure whether a diagnosis of autism, or a label of any kind, will be a hindrance or a help Much of the book is spent exploring this issue whether we are all on the spectrum whether psychological diagnosis is necessary the benefits of some treatments or approaches over others and focusing on the abilities of children rather than their differences The story examines these various issues in a very balanced way, giving us characters that have opposing opinions and beliefs, and offering examples of things that have worked and things that haven t Overall, I think that the author is very respectful to the autism community, and that this book would be very empowering for people who don t identify as neurotypical, because it encourages the pursuit of self confidence and satisfaction with individual achievements rather than focussing on differences in a negative way The story includes the hilarious ups and downs expected of a Rosie book the Genetics Lecture Outrage, the Oyster Shucking Incident, the Rosie Crucifixion and the Dave Disaster All our old friends make an appearance, including Dave and Sonia, Gene and Claudia, Phil and Trevor, but we learn backstory for each of them, and are introduced to some new characters including Hudson s friends Dov and Blanche and her family , and Don s new friends and associates who are teaming up to open the world s best cocktail bar Don continues to immediately assess strangers by their age, appearance and BMI Body Mass Index He and Rosie seem to have settled on a system for negotiating the rules and parameters of their relationship, and their son Hudson is an endearing character who is highly intelligent, curious, deeply loyal and able to employ problem solving techniques every bit as capably as his father or perhaps so Hudson is often involuntarily locked into an unreasonable position , he doesn t enjoy unanticipated physical contact, he has a heightened sense of justice and fairness, he doesn t suffer fools, and he is always prepared, just like his father Thought provoking statements punctuate the story, designed to make us, the readers, think and rethink our position or views One example is when Don recognises that it is considered completely normal to seek coaching to improve our physical abilities swimming lessons, martial arts training, cross country running but that we don t view seeking psychological help in the same way Another example is our inevitable comparisons between our children and their behaviour with ourselves and our own behaviour we want things to be better for our children than we experienced, but we also don t want to label our children or view them through the prism of our own failures.This is a light hearted and big hearted read that nevertheless deals with some important issues autism obesity parenting and moral rights science based research racism sexism addiction friendship the role of teachers the vagaries of human behaviour and the difficulties but importance of confronting and challenging the system flag
