The Rosie Project

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

'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' Sophie Kinsella
__________

Don Tillman has got his love life planned out. He knows exactly who he wants, but is it who he needs?

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?

If you loved The Rosie Project, find out what Don did next in The Rosie Effect, and PRE-ORDER The Rosie Result NOW - the hilarious and heart-warming conclusion to the trilogy!

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.

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!
