Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

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 is now available from Encore for a great value

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, Read More chevron_right

   Review of Rosie’s Project
Delightful read. After reading the part of book describing the approach to fine his soul mate I was not sure I would like it.

As the book progressed and he met someone who didn’t match his criteria it was very enjoyable.

   FABULOUS!.
I had just downloaded The Rosie Project and was preparing to read it on a Sunday morning when I found out that Fareed Zakaria's show, GPS, was on CNN. I try to watch him every Sunday. He was interviewing Bill Gates and, having come from Seattle to Arizona, I was really interested in what Bill had to say, said Blair. After the commercial, they chatted and went to sleep. Bill Gates was sitting alone at the bar when a colleague asked him what he was reading. The whole thing is a total travesty, fumed Dr. Goin. I absolutely adored the book, and I'm thrilled the book was also picked up by Random House. This book was a treat and stirred a lot of emotions, Morgenthau said.

   Amusing but predictable
I chose to read this book because of the number of positive reviews and I enjoy a good, seriously funny book, Sosa said. I didn't think it was particularly funny, Mr. Rule told the judge. The boys are having a blast making noise, Sosa said. nan The Rosie Project is a holiday read about a quirky Professor in genetics who sets about finding himself a wife with the aid of a questionnaire. The most unlikely candidate... Rosie comes along for the ride and you can guess how all that ends up. There is a sequel, but I won't be rushing to buy it.

   Easy Read!
The Rosie Project was a captivating read that I had a hard time putting down!
The character development was spot on and easy to follow.

   Zzzzzzzzz.........
I was looking for a book to read and happened upon this one because Bill Gates called it "profound." Bill Hollingworth: "This book was awful. The plot was preposterous, the characters unlikable and the plot vapid. It was a slow burn, I kept holding out hope it was going somewhere. That was before the government shut down in the middle of the night. Billionaires don't advise.

   Incredible love story worth the read
For the past 4 years, I have had this book on my kindle shelf, it must have been recommended to me or free on Amazon, and I downloaded it, read a chapter and got bored. I wasted 4 years not reading this book after seeing it pop up on multiple occasions, but I decided to read it last night after seeing it on multiple occasions. I have not cried at a love story in a while, but I was in tears more than one time with this book. They should have described his relationship with Rosie in more detail. I loved this book so much I would read it again. I can't wait for the movie to come out. I recommend this book to anyone who isn't a fan of romance novels, it's not a conventional romance novel and you will love it!

   Incredible love story worth the read
I've had this book sitting on my kindle shelf for 4 years, it must have been recommended to me or free on amazon, read a chapter and got bored. But last night, after seeing this book pop up on multiple occasions, I decided to read it and I cannot believe I wasted 4 years not reading it! I haven't cried at a love story in a while, but I was in tears more than one occasion with this book. I just wish they had described his intimacy with Rosie in greater detail but I guess that may see more relevance to most. This was a fantastic book and easily a favorite of mine as well, I would have to say. I cannot wait for the movie to come out, Taylor said. I highly recommend this book even to those who aren't a fan of romance novels, this is in no way a conventional romance novel so trust me you'll love it!

   Warning! Laugh out loud funny.
The whole thing is a parody, you know, like when you read a book and the whole thing is a parody, right? Afterwards, reading about how the book was written, you realize what a labor of love it was to pen this seemingly lighthearted romp through the trials of an obsessive compulsive academic to find a suitable mate. Funny, touching, Bruno told The Age. It's a long time since I've read a good book without grim overtones.

   and in a good way. Loved the character and loved the writing
Who knew Sheldon Cooper was a math whiz? Well, first of all, I did, and in a good way. Loved the character and the writing, too. He apparently did not research much on Asperger's syndrome and, so 'chapeaux' to his understanding and skills of the issue as it is presented in such a witty, non-judgemental and very much close-to-reality way that was a pleasure to read. I think it really provides an honest insight on autistic behaviour that might prove to be extremely useful, Raymond said. What a good laugh! It's great to be back home, said Blair.

   but his life is organized down to the minute and he doesn't like any disruption or change to his routine
The book was not terrible. The story of geneticist Don Tillman. Highly functioning, but his life is organized down to the minute and he doesn't like change to his routine. He is confused as to why he is not with someone. He wants a wife and is on a quest to find one. There was a lengthy questionnaire that no woman could answer to his satisfaction. Gene and his wife are friends with Don. Don inevitably falls into the social pitfalls that they try to buffer him from. Don meets Rosie. While getting to know each other, a bartender and student embark on a quest to find out who Rosie's real father is. I read this book in one day. It was a bit entertaining, but not really. Probably not going to look at the sequel. It's not chick- lit, but very close.
