The Rosie Project: No. 1: Don Tillman

Graeme Simsion

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is a story about love, life and lobster every Tuesday…

Meet Don Tillman.

Don is getting married. He just doesn’t know who to yet. But he has designed a very detailed questionnaire to help him find the perfect woman. One thing he already knows, though, is that it’s not Rosie. Absolutely, completely, definitely not.

Sometimes, though, you don’t find love: love finds you…

With the charm of Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and the romance of David Nicholls’ One Day, The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is both funny and endearing.

A love story with a twist. Enjoyed the male, very logical, but copmpletely impractical attitude to love. My hubby loved it too. It reminds us all that however perfect we think we are or others seem to us, we’re all the same really.

An unusual book about living with Aspergers. It was sad but made me laugh too. I will seek out the next two books, so I must be hooked!
