"The Rosie Project," by Graeme Simsion

The Rosie Project - Graeme Simsion

The Plot: Unconventional genetics professor Don lives a precisely ordered and catalogued life. Blissfully unaware of his place on the autism spectrum (despite a heavily ironic scene where he has to give a lecture on Asperger's to teenagers), he often has trouble relating to people and responding to social cues, so when he decides he needs a wife, he creates a detailed Wife Project questionnaire to weed out unsuitable people. And yet Rosie, a disorganized woman who approaches him for help finding her biological father, charms her way into his life despite utterly failing his questionnaire.


The Good:

  • Charming characters
  • Interesting writing
  • Engaging Pacing
  • Enjoyably romance story


The Bad:

  • Have a little trouble believing Don could be that clueless
  • The resolution about Rosie's father is a little vague
