Have you read this yet?? I think I’m late in the game but what a refreshingly amusing, sweet book! Graeme Simsion’s The Rosie Project is not just another lame love story but a humorously clever one that got me laughing out loud and nodding to parts that I genuinely could relate to.
Don Tillman is a 40-something-year-old genetics professor with Asperger syndrome who sets out to find a wife. In fact, he formally calls it The Wife Project. Instead of seeking her through a traditional sense, he distributes a questionnaire that could give him insights into his future wife candidates, and quickly. But as he’s trying to focus on The Wife Project, Rosie Jarman, a beautiful psychology doctorate candidate enters his life and immediately distracts him with a new genetics project — to find her biological father. The Rosie Project. She’s sarcastic and intelligent, and unlike any other counterpart Don had ever dealt with, Rosie always has something to say. Don’s socially inept and geeky nature and Rosie’s quirky little mannerisms will have you feeling good throughout the entire book. It’s important to be comfortable in your own skin but to find someone who loves you exactly for who you are? Well that’s a happy blessing. If this book ever ends up in the big screen, read it first!
