The Rosie Project – Graeme Simsion

Synopsis:

Don Tillman has got his love life planned out. He knows exactly who he wants, but is it who he needs?

Love isn’t an exact science – but no one told Don Tillman.

A thirty-nine-year-old geneticist, Don’s never had a second date. So he devises the Wife Project, a scientific test to find the perfect partner.

Enter Rosie – ‘the world’s most incompatible woman’ – throwing Don’s safe, ordered life into chaos.

But what is this unsettling, alien emotion he’s feeling? . . .

Review:

This story is so wonderful. It is incredibly easy to read. It’s funny. It’s captivating. It’s heartwarming.

I was so invested in both Don and Rosie’s stories. It was a joy to watch their friendship bloom. The awkward encounters and their respective searched.

I love Don’s original concept. I enjoyed how it’s written from his point of view. Very relatable in many ways to me and I loved the lists and billet points throughout, really broke up the blocks of text in places.

I’ve given this a 4/5 as I’d like to have seen more from Rosie and learnt more about her. Perhaps this is what more of the second books focus is on…

  1. This was kind of cute, and an enjoyable read. I started reading the sequel and well… it fell a bit flat for me, to be honest, and I didn’t finish reading it. Never bothered with the third one.
