The Rosie Project Graeme Simsion read online review & book description:

The international bestselling romantic comedy “bursting with warmth, emotional depth, and…humor,” (Entertainment Weekly) featuring the oddly charming, socially challenged genetics professor, Don, as he seeks true love.

The art of love is never a science: Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially inept professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers.

Rosie Jarman possesses all these qualities. Don easily disqualifies her as a candidate for The Wife Project (even if she is “quite intelligent for a barmaid”). But Don is intrigued by Rosie’s own quest to identify her biological father. When an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on The Father Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie―and the realization that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love, it finds you.

Arrestingly endearing and entirely unconventional, Graeme Simsion’s distinctive debut “navigates the choppy waters of adult relationships, both romantic and platonic, with a fresh take” (USA TODAY). “Filled with humor and plenty of heart, The Rosie Project is a delightful reminder that all of us, no matter how we’re wired, just want to fit in” (Chicago Tribune).

    I thought the plot was extremely original and I enjoyed it up to a point. After a while it got a bit tiresome and I felt like I was plodding along.
  • Hysterical and brilliantly executed

    Don is a geneticist who has Aspergers and is in pursuit of finding himself a wife. Due to his substantially ineptitude socially and emotionally he often misreads or misunderstands the societal norms of relationship dynamics romantically professionally and socially. This creates for some brilliantly hilarious and comical situations that your heart is bleeding for the awkwardness and the angst he has endured his whole life and you’re rooting for him to be acknowledged and recognized through the eyes of love and admiration you can’t help but feel once you know Don as Claudia, Gene, Daphne and eventually Rosie does. His best friend sets him up with Rosie and his world turns upside down. A MUST READ! You will laugh you will fall in love with Don and his idiosyncrasies and see them as an endearing aspect of him.

    Made me laugh out loud in public. Be sure to read it with your inner stand-up comic voice for best results.

    I really enjoyed this book. The story is well developed and you are taken from one interesting and funny situation to the next. It's very easy to read and hard to put down as you drawn more and more into the story.

    Great read! Much more comedy than romance. Couldn't put it down. If you want to smile and laugh out loud, this is a book you will enjoy.
