'Marvellous' John Boyne, author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas'Adorable... A gem of a book' Marian KeyesThe Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is a story about love, life and lobsters...Meet Don Tillman.Don is getting married.He just doesn't know who to yet.But he has designed a very detailed questionnaire to help him find the perfect woman.One thing he already knows, though, is that it's not Rosie.Absolutely, completely, definitely not.Telling the story of Rosie and Don, Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project is an international phenomenon, sold in over thirty countries - and counting.Don Tillman is a socially challenged genetics professor who's decided the time has come to find a wife. His questionnaire is intended to weed out anyone who's unsuitable. The trouble is, Don has rather high standards and doesn't really do flexible so, despite lots of takers - he looks like Gregory Peck - he's not having much success in identifying The One.When Rosie Jarman comes to his office, Don assumes it's to apply for the Wife Project - and duly discounts her on the grounds she smokes, drinks, doesn't eat meat, and is incapable of punctuality. However, Rosie has no interest in becoming Mrs Tillman and is actually there to enlist Don's assistance in a professional capacity: to help her find her biological father.Sometimes, though, you don't find love: love finds you...Like The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is a truly distinctive debut. With the charm of Mark Haddon's The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and the romance of David Nicholls' One Day, it's both funny and endearing - and is set to become the feel-good novel of 2013...Graeme Simsion is a full-time writer. Previously an IT consultant and educator, he wrote his first book in 1994 (the standard reference on data modelling, now entering its fourth edition), and is married to Anne, a professor of psychiatry who writes erotic fiction. They have two children.

4.0
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 ...

3.5 The Rosie Project A.K.A Sheldon Falls In Love
“Restaurants are minefields for the socially inept” Like I mentioned in the title of this review,The Rosie Project is what Sheldon's diary would be if he had fallen in love with a woman that was the complete opposite of him. It's quirky,funny and often endearing. The exact type of read I would ...

4.5 Book 76/100: The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Around the Year Reading Challenge Item #39: A book set in a place you'd like to visitAfter discussing some of the book's flaws with my book club last week, I realize I may have been a bit generous in awarding it the elusive five stars. But despite its weaknesses, while I was reading this book I did ...

A light romantic read with a hero who is just a bit different--and told from the hero's point of view. However, like most romances, the story lacks verisimilitude, because I feel like the hero changes in ways that just don't seem realistic--and that drives me a bit crazy. So, I just suspend belief a...
