The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Synopsis-Meet Don Tillman. Don is getting married. He just doesn’t know who to yet. But he has designed a very detailed questionnaire to help him find the perfect woman. One thing he already knows, though, is that it’s not Rosie. Absolutely, completely, definitely not.
Review- I am so glad I finally picked up this book to read. It’s been on my TBR shelf for sometime, but I felt a little nervous about reading it because it has got such raving reviews from fellow friends and bloggers- I really wanted to like it too! Thankfully, I did. In fact I loved this quirky story about a gentics professor named Don Tillman with “Aspie” traits on his quest to find true love, known as “The Wife Project.” Simsion has produced a wonderfully funny, moving and surprisingly believable world in which the characters exist. I laughed out loud, I was moved close to tears and most of the time I just couldn’t put it down because I was eager to know what would happen next. It’s one of those novels that I envisioned playing out in my mind as I read it, thinking the whole time how great this would be as a romcom movie! There’s not much more I can say, other than I loved it!
