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.

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is a story about love, life and lobster every Tuesday.`Marvellous`. (John Boyne). `Original, clever and perfectly written`. (Jill Mansell). `Adorable`. (Marian Keyes). `An upbeat, quirky, impertinent gem of a read`. (Chris Cleave). 'I'm not good at understanding what other people want.' 'Tell me something I don't know .' Love isn't an exact science - but no one told Don Tillman. A thirty-nine-year-old geneticist, Don's never had a second date. So he devises the Wife Project, a scientific test to find the perfect partner. Enter Rosie - 'the world's most incompatible woman' - throwing Don's safe, ordered life into chaos. But what is this unsettling, alien emotion he's feeling? `Don Tillman is one of the most endearing, charming and fascinating literary characters I have met in a long time`. (The Times). `Hilarious, unlikely and heartbreaking`. (Easy Living). `Touching and laugh-out-loud funny - think The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time meets Silver Linings Playbook`. (Stylist). `Funny, endearing, and pure, wonderful escapism`. (Independent). `A sweet, funny rom-com.You'll be willing Don and Rosie on every step of the way`.(Marie Claire). `Original, charming and very funny`. (Woman & Home). `A comic triumph: clever, humane and tears-in-your-eyes funny. But best of all, The Rosie Project is a madly romantic love story`. (Liz Jensen, author of The Rapture). `I couldn't put this book down. It's one of the most quirky and endearing romances I've ever read. I laughed the whole way through. And now I want to meet Don`. (Sophie Kinsella). 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, The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is both funny and endearing - and is set to become the paperback of 2014. 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. Seller Inventory # AAZ9781405912792
