The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Don is…odd. A brilliant professor and scientist, he abides by a strict lifestyle based on efficiency and science. It seems he’s only missing one thing: love. So begins the Wife Project–a carefully calculated endeavor to find himself a “suitable partner”. Then Don meets Rosie, an unpredictable hurricane in his quiet life of reason. Rosie is looking for her real father, and Don might just be the man to help her find him. Together they embark on the Father Project, catapulting Don into a world far more colorful than he thought possible.
Yes. Yes to all. The Rosie Project is a triumph of nerd love. The characters are full and authentic and the dynamics between the various couples are nicely blended. I loved Don’s quirky yet relatable take on life. I smiled at nearly every page thanks to the brilliantly crafted voice. It’s a fast read, the kind of book you can sit down with and enjoy over the weekend. If you’re looking to fall in love with reading all over again, check out The Rosie Project.
