The Rosie Project, by Graeme Simsion

Leave a comment

The Rosie Project was a delightful book to read.  The star character, Don Tillman, knows that he doesn’t function the way that  The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsionsupposed normal people do, but he is a successful professor in genetics and happy with his routine.  Don has his schedule worked out to the minute for efficiency, exercise, cleaning, bedtime, and follows a strict meal plan each week.  He is structured and ordered and extremely literal.  When Don decides to find a wife, he approaches the project with logic and research based precision, he forms “The Wife Project” including a stringent questionnaire to avoid mistakes he made in the past.  Rosie blows into Don’s life with chaos, disorder and fun!  Don thinks that she has applied for the “Wife Project” and Rosie is totally unaware of it’s existence.  The relationship that forms between this unlikely pair is pure magic and fun.  I recommend this book, it’s difficult to read with a straight face, you can’t help but crack a smile at the humor in Don’s literal interpretation of the world.
