Review:

An Amazon Best Book of the Month, October 2013: Full of heart and humor, Simsion’s debut novel about a fussy, socially-challenged man’s search for the perfect wife is smart, breezy, quirky, and fun. Sure, it’s the precise equivalent of a well-crafted romantic comedy. (In fact, the book was clearly written with the big-screen in mind, and the film rights have already been sold). But you’d have to be a pretty cynical reader not to fall for Don Tillman, a handsome genetics professor who has crafted a pathologically micromanaged life for himself but can’t seem to score a second date. After launching his Wife Project, which includes a hilarious questionnaire intended to weed out imperfect candidates--smokers, makeup wearers, vegans (“incredibly annoying”)--Don meets Rosie, a stunning, maddeningly disorganized bartender/student who’s looking for her biological father. The reader knows just where the story is headed: Rosie’s so wrong for Don, she’s perfect. That’s not giving anything away. Half the fun of the book is watching pent-up, Asperger’s-afflicted Don break free, thanks to Rosie, from his precisely controlled, annoyingly sensible, and largely humorless lifestyle. By the final third, you’re cheering for Don to shatter all his rules. And you’re casting the film. --Neal Thompson

From the Back Cover:

Don Tillman wants to find a wife. 

Don is brilliant, handsome and well-off. But social situations confound him. His solution? A sixteen-page questionnaire designed to find the perfect partner: the Wife Project.

Rosie Jarman wants to find her biological father.

Don’s genetics expertise makes him the perfect man to help Rosie on her quest. Sarcastic, non-punctual Rosie would fail the questionnaire in a second, so why is Don putting the Wife Project on hold for the Rosie Project?

Will the Rosie Project and the Wife Project become one and the same?

The more Don tells himself that Rosie is completely unsuitable, the more reasons he finds to keep her in his life. As an unlikely relationship blooms, Don is about to realise that you don’t find love: love finds you.
