The Rosie ProjectBook - 2013
A Globe & Mail 100 Selection
The feel-good hit of 2013, The Rosie Project is a classic screwball romance about a handsome but awkward genetics professor and the woman who is totally wrong for him
A first-date dud, socially awkward and overly fond of quick-dry clothes, genetics professor Don Tillman has given up on love, until a chance encounter gives him an idea.
He will design a questionnaire--a sixteen-page, scientifically researched questionnaire--to uncover the perfect partner. She will most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker or a late-arriver. Rosie is all these things. She is also fiery and intelligent, strangely beguiling, and looking for her biological father a search that a DNA expert might just be able to help her with.
The Rosie Project is a romantic comedy like no other. It is arrestingly endearing and entirely unconventional, and it will make you want to drink cocktails.

Can you apply the scientific method to find a partner? Don, a socially-awkward genetics professor, is certainly going to try. But the results may not be what he was expecting.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Professor Don Tillman initiates the Wife Project to find himself a compatible partner, and he ends up with Rosie, who he had ruled out as patently unsuitable. Author Graeme Simsion, an Australian, teaches us many things: love can make you do irrational things, and you don't find love-it finds you. He also illustrated the Bible lesson, "let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Loved this quirky book.
