The Rosie Project

The Rosie Project - Graeme Simsion

Don is a socially inept Professor of Genetics who want what most men want, sex, marriage, a date would be fine and a good beginning. He is super organized, very matter of fact, logical in his thinking and so not to waste time in his quest he comes up with a questionnaire that will help him find the perfect mate. He did not, however, factor in Rosie.


Fun look at the mismatches and trials of dating, finding someone to love, and maybe being dragged along almost without will. Parts were super funny, the beginning with the Asperger kids was wonderful as was the part with the dancing, and the bar-tending bit was funny as well.  Would have rated this higher but after a while I found parts of it became tedious, at least to me. Well worth reading just to meet Don and Rosie and have a few laughs in the bargain.
