THE ART OF LOVE IS NEVER A SCIENCE MEET DON TILLMAN, a brilliant yet socially challenged professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. And so, in the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers. Rosie Jarman is all these things. She also is strangely beguiling, fiery, and intelligent. And while Don quickly disqualifies her as a candidate for the Wife Project, as a DNA expert Don is particularly suited to help Rosie on her own quest: identifying her biological father. When an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on the Father Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie—and the realization that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love, it finds you. Arrestingly endearing and entirely unconventional, Graeme Simsion’s distinctive debut will resonate with anyone who has ever tenaciously gone after life or love in the face of great challenges. The Rosie Project is a rare find: a book that restores our optimism in the power of human connection.

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-CycleThis is a hard one for me to rate. There were things I liked and things I didn't like. I didn't know anything about this book going into it. I have seen the cover and heard the title in various bookish escapades, but never read the summary. I saw a cop...

Lost momentum & will. Just wasn't for me; officially flipping to DNF. (I think I've been reading it > 1 year!)

When I began it, I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book or not, as the narration was heavy with lots of 'telling'. However, I quickly realised that that was an appropriate style for a character who is most likely Asperger's or leaning towards autism, with his heavy emphasis on routine, struc...

5.0 Der Wissenschaftler und die Liebe
Der Erfolg dieses Buches ist völlig nachvollziehbar auch ich konnte es nicht mehr weglegen und las es in einem Rutsch durch. Als leichte romantische Komödie konzipiert, die tatsächlich ganz ohne Schmalz und Schmachten auskommt, trifft sie voll ins Schwarze und hat auch mein romantikresistentes Herz ...
