This book was extremely well narrated by the author. The content is credible because it is played out on a daily basis in interviews and TV footage. With the insight of D Trumps childhood and early life it becomes clear how his behaviour has developed and why he speakers and acts and dismisses anyone who goes against his beliefs that he is ‘best’ or ‘greatest’

❤️ a brilliant narrative of a psychopath caught in his own actions

This book is a breath of fresh air in my library- the narrator is perfect in his delivery of this story which kept me listening at every opportunity
The main character is a enigma to himself and the listener - yet he comes over as ‘normal’ to himself and all around him and you a listener who is behind him , following his every move and thought process

Well worth it (in my opinion)

Stick to acting

I gave up because I found Toms reading monotone and plodding - there was hardly a breath between one story finishing and the next starting

Very enjoyable

I bought this reluctantly only because it was on offer - I had seen many years ago a TV adaptation and thought it confusing and hard to follow - the book was so much better and much easier to understand even thought names and places are in Swedish it was still easy to follow - well worth it and pleased I bought it

Brilliant, a great listen, refreshingly different

Would you consider the audio edition of The Rosie Project to be better than the print version?

Yes definitely- the narrator certainly adds to the main character - his delivery is perfect

What other book might you compare The Rosie Project to, and why?

Not sure if a book but the film Rain Man maybe because it gives an in sight to Autism

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Too any to choose from but the interactions between the main character Don and Rosie are so well written and described you feel like you are there with them

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Lobster on a Tuesday

Any additional comments?

This book was extremely well written giving an insight to the problems that the main character needed to overcome to achieve his primary goal

It was funny, sad, emotional, and easy to identify why

Good story shame about the music

Whoever thought the screeching music that at times overlays the narration was a good idea should be sacked - at times it drowns out the words but it makes nails down a chalkboard sound pleasant

This is a really good story - moving and was the reason I kept with it

Moving story

At first I found the main character a bit difficult to bond with which goes to show how well this has been written

I found myself wanting a silver lining finish as well as the story unfolded

A really good listen and I had not known it was also a film so have not seen it

Slow to start but really worth it

Took me a couple of attempts to get into this book but it was really worth it and has a very good twist to the tale at the end

The characters are well portrayed and they really come alive and the voices to match them

I ended up really rooting for the main character

Very pleased I didn’t give up on it as I would have missed a good book

The narrator was excellent - each character had a distinctive voice and the accents were so realistic- the story had lots of twists and turns and it sounded like the author had done her homework getting the settings right - loved it

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The main character Fran actually said something worthwhile!

What was most disappointing about Christobel Kent’s story?

I'm giving up on this one it's too frustrating the main character never says anything except cut short sectances and thoughts it may be due to her situation but it's just driving me nuts and the book moves at such a slow pace because of it

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Clare Corbett?

She did a good job under the circumstances
