The Rosie Project

The Rosie Project - Graeme Simsion Professor of Genetics at a prestigious university Don Tillman finds himself personally a little short changed in the gene department. Although he does have friends – two to be exact - he is socially awkward, a little staid and most definitely OCD. He is fairly comfortable in his life but would like to have a life partner. The problem is women are just not naturally drawn to him, and when he does interact with them he finds them definitely not up to his exacting standards. Despite a 16-page questionnaire he calls “The Wife Project” he is still finding now luck in mating. When Rosie appears in his office he immediately knows that she is a most unsuitable candidate for his survey, but she needs his help in another endeavor soon to be known as “The Rosie Project”. They both agree that they are not suitable to mate, but can they even work together?

The best words to describe this book are fun and quirky. It is definitely a light read meant to be enjoyed. Which I did! It is a comedy; sometimes a romantic comedy and sometimes just a comedy of errors. If you have a soft spot in your heart for Dr. Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory) but secretly cheer on Amy Farrah Fowler then you will love this book. If you laughed and cried with Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt in “As Good As It Gets” you definitely have to pick up this book.
