The Rosie Project

Penguin

*The sequel to The Rosie Project - The Rosie Effect - is coming in September 2014*


The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is a story about love, life and lobster every Tuesday...

'Marvellous' John Boyne

'Original, clever and perfectly written' Jill Mansell

'Adorable' Marian Keyes

'An upbeat, quirky, impertinent gem of a read' Chris Cleave

'I'm not good at understanding what other people want.'

'Tell me something I don't know . . .'

Love isn't an exact science - but no one told Don Tillman. A thirty-nine-year-old geneticist, Don's never had a second date. So he devises the Wife Project, a scientific test to find the perfect partner. Enter Rosie - 'the world's most incompatible woman' - throwing Don's safe, ordered life into chaos. But what is this unsettling, alien emotion he's feeling?

'Don Tillman is one of the most endearing, charming and fascinating literary characters I have met in a long time' The Times

'Hilarious, unlikely and heartbreaking' Easy Living

'Touching and laugh-out-loud funny - think The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time meets Silver Linings Playbook' Stylist

'Funny, endearing, and pure, wonderful escapism' Independent

'A sweet, funny rom-com . . . You'll be willing Don and Rosie on every step of the way' Marie Claire

'Original, charming and very funny' Woman & Home

'A comic triumph: clever, humane and tears-in-your-eyes funny. But best of all, The Rosie Project is a madly romantic love story' Liz Jensen, author of The Rapture

'I couldn't put this book down. It's one of the most quirky and endearing romances I've ever read. I laughed the whole way through. And now I want to meet Don' Sophie Kinsella

With the charm of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and the romance of David Nicholls' One Day, The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is both funny and endearing - and is set to become the paperback of 2014.

Graeme Simsion is a full-time writer. Previously an IT consultant and educator, he wrote his first book in 1994 (the standard reference on data modelling, now entering its fourth edition), and is married to Anne, a professor of psychiatry who writes erotic fiction. They have two children.

Simply because it is really useful to have somebody clean your bathroom while you are giving a lecture on Asperger's - a proposition that is far from romantic. The questionnaire he develops to find hir perfect partner is equally unsentimental. Luckily for him, a friend manages to attach him to the perfect most imperfect woman and Don the pedant discovers what it is like to have butterflies in his stomach.

not bad

Great Idea!, and the characters are very well described, good word plays and well written, but as the story goes on it becomes a bit too long and streched, so that it became a bit boring

Quirky nerdy love

Meet Don Tillman, an Australian genetics professor who doesn't seem to notice that he is an autistic, which makes the book especially funny to read. The first thing he does in the book, is giving a lecture about autism to some students. As he keeps on teaching them the symptoms of an autistic person, his students keep on laughing all the time, because the person he is describing is equal to his own person, and he doesn't seem to notice. You soon find out that Don doesn't fit in well with others, that is why wants to find the perfect girlfriend for him with an unconventional method: he draws up a questionnaire that would help him find the perfect mate. This turns out to be something more easily done on theory, as noone seems to fit 100% into the conception of his perfect partner. When he meets Rosie, who is just the opposite of what he had dreamed of, he finds out that love isn't just about matching each other. Funny, quirky and heartwarming story with likable characters and just the right amout of romance!
