Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are back in Australia after a decade in New York, and they're about to face their most important challenge. Their son, Hudson, is struggling at school: he's socially awkward and not fitting in. Don's spent a lifetime trying to fit in, so who better to teach Hudson the skills he needs? The Hudson Project will require the help of friends old and new, force Don to decide how much to guide Hudson and how much to let him be himself, and raise some significant questions about his own identity. Meanwhile, there are multiple distractions to deal with: the Genetics Lecture Outrage, Rosie's troubles at work, estrangement from his best friend Gene ... And opening a cocktail bar.

Does Don and Rosie's son have autism? Does Don? 10 years after the Rosie Effect, son Hudson is experiencing problems....and Don handles it in typical fashion.

This novel is a very satisfying end to a fun trilogy. It's great to see how different personalities can be successful and find happiness in the world. I have to say, I missed hearing much from Rosie, but I enjoyed getting to know Don and Rosie's son, Hudson. I felt like this part of the trilogy really did a lot more exploration of society's perception and treatment of people "on the spectrum"-- especially children, and I really liked the way lots of viewpoints were explored. Still a fun read more than a serious read, but I don't mind having some thoughts provoked between laughs.

Some humor attached to a humorless topic.

an enjoyable finale to the trilogy featuring don tillman. not as silly as the original rosie project, but it reflects the growth that has occurred for don and his family.

A great series for anyone who has or has not been diagnosed (but might be autistic). Everyone of us is different, but there is so much we can all relate to--especially the question of coming out dealt with in this, the final volume in a unique series.

As good as the previous two books. Graeme Simsion did an amazing job once again. The book is funny, the story is compelling and leaves you wishing there was more.

A New & Noteworthy pick. The final book in the bestselling and well-loved series that started with “The Rosie Project.” A totally satisfying ending to this fun and quirky series.
