The Rosie Project

Comedy. Readers looking for an enjoyable romantic comedy need look no further than the debut novel by Graeme Simsion titled, The Rosie Project. Protagonist Don Tillman is a genetics professor who has created an orderly life for himself in response to the position he holds on the autism spectrum. All the parts of his life from work to meals have been calibrated with precision. His social life falls short so he starts what he calls The Wife Project, and develops a questionnaire to sort out potential candidates. After Don meets Rosie, a bartender and doctoral student who is searching for her biological father, Don’s life turns upside down. He starts The Father Project to help Rosie obtain and analyze DNA samples from likely candidates. The descriptive language in the novel creates visuals that entertained me, and the development of these interesting characters kept me smiling and laughing throughout.
