Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback, the international bestselling romantic comedy “bursting with warmth, emotional depth, and…humor,” (Entertainment Weekly) featuring the oddly charming, socially challenged genetics professor, Don, as he seeks true love.

The art of love is never a science: Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially inept professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. 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 possesses all these qualities. Don easily disqualifies her as a candidate for The Wife Project (even if she is “quite intelligent for a barmaid”). But Don is intrigued by Rosie’s own quest to identify 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 “navigates the choppy waters of adult relationships, both romantic and platonic, with a fresh take (USA TODAY). “Filled with humor and plenty of heart, The Rosie Project is a delightful reminder that all of us, no matter how we’re wired, just want to fit in” (Chicago Tribune).

This was one of the weirdest books I have ever read. Story overall is good, but found it to be a bit dry and hard to relate. It was humorous though at times.

A good fun read about a geneticist with aspergers who wants to find a wife. He uses some really unorthodox methods - wife project questionnaires - to find the perfect mate. He helps a young radical woman find her biologic father. They have many adventures and along the way he finds the "you don't always get what you want, you get what you need." Good characters, especially if you know or are aspergers. A bit weak at the very end.

Wonderful novel about a professor with asbergers who wants to find a wife and approaches it as a "project".... He gets sidetrack as he meets a young woman totally unsuited to his "wife project" but who he decides to help find who her real father is.. She is Rosie and therefore the title is The Rosie Project!!!! Great fast read that gives you deeper insight as to how a person with Asbergers syndrome thinks and is a page turner to boot!!!
