I was standing on one leg shucking oysters when the problems began…
Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are about to face their most important challenge.
Their ten-year-old 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 Don’s 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 the world’s best cocktail bar.
Hilarious and thought-provoking, with a brilliant cast of characters, The Rosie Result is the triumphant final instalment of the much-loved and internationally bestselling Don Tillman trilogy.
Don has been married to Rosie for 4,380 days and their son, Hudson, is now 11. Don’s happiness is starting to go down hill as Rosie is having trouble and work, Don is in hot water after his latest lecture goes viral and Hudson is having trouble at school.
Don decides that in order to learn how to be a good parent, as well as a good husband, he needs to give up his job and get help from old friends.
This is a wonderful conclusion to a very entertaining series. It is still as heartwarming and quirky as the other books, with bigger topics at it’s core.
