The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

rosie projectWhen I heard Indigo was teaming up with this author to make a World’s Biggest Book Club out of this book, I thought, heck, why not. I had been wanting to read it for a while but just never took the time to pick it up. They were doing the book club because his second book was being released within the next few weeks. I read his book in 4 hours. I loved it so much, I just couldn’t put it down!

Don Tillman is a genetics professor who lives his life very strictly. Everything he does during the day is timed to the minute and he always uses his time in order to obtain maximum efficiency.

After doing some calculations and really pondering on the thought of happiness. He decides that he should be married. But in doing so, he has to find a wife.Β The thing is, Don never seems to get passed the first date. He decides to start the Wife Project.

He creates this questionnaire that he will give out to any woman that seems interested or who might be a good match. They have to fill out a lot of questions and the answers will decide if they are a perfect match or not. He has the idea in his head of who his perfect match would be and decides that he won’t settle for anything less.

That’s when he meets Rosie and she was basically the exact opposite of what he was looking for.

Both of them end up working together in order to figure out who Rosie’s father is, seeing as Don takes great interest in genetics, he seems to be the only one that can help her. They call it the Rosie Project. As all love stories go… you get the point.

This story was beautifully written and I just kept wanting to know how both projects would end. Would Don find the ideal woman? Would Rosie ever figure out who her father was? And as much as Don might have been a little different and very stubborn, you easily fall in love with the guy and you root for him throughout the story.

The story is light and a real feel-good read. I recommend it to people who regularly read adult fiction but want a different more comical love story with very individual characters.

I give this story a 10 out of 10.

You really need to read it! I also own the second book now and can’t wait to read it either!!! I need to know more!!!
