This was a very enjoyable novel to listen to. I was unsure when I started but after the first dic I was hooked on the characters. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an enjoyable read or listen. The characters will win you over and the novel is excellently paced.

I was swept off my feet by this novel from the very beginning. I highly recommend it in audiobook form since it gives real dimension to Don, the narrator/main character. Though it's never stated outright we can assume Don has Aspergers Syndrome, which contributes to his social ineptitude and fanaticism about scheduling his life down to the minute. At first Rosie is a bit unlikable, but I really warmed to her as the story went on. Don's cluelessness is endearing, and watching him try to puzzle out the most basic of human interactions was one of the most entertaining parts of the book. A must read for anyone looking for a different, optimistic, feel-good story.
