'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 The Rosie Project
I’d been meaning to read this novel for a while so I was glad we read it for book club. As a whole, I enjoy this novel. I found myself laughing throughout the novel and I was totally absorbed into Don’s Father Project. I thought the idea of their original projects were a bit odd and I was glad that ...

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 ...
