The Rosie Project

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is like reading a romance starring Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory.  The humour in here is dry and perfect, similar to The Hundred Year Old Man.

An uptight genetics researcher decides he requires a wife, and sets out to interview potential candidates.   To simplify the process, he creates a detailed and exhaustive questionnaire, to eliminate unsuitable prospects quickly.   He hates mess, hates unpredictability, and hates spontaneity.  Which means, of course, that he has no idea why spending time with Rosie is so much fun, since she is quickly disqualified as wife material.

This was a very sweet story, with great writing, and wonderful characters.  A thinking person’s love story – especially an overthinking person.  Perfect for a read at the cottage, or on the beach.  Highly, highly recommended.

Happy reading!
