The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion has been all over the book world recently.  A ton of bloggers have read it, it’s a featured B&N book, and it was mentioned on a podcast I listened to recently.

But The Rosie Project is not just hype – it’s awesome.

Any fans of Sheldon Cooper out there?  The main character of The Rosie Project, Don, is very similar.  Don doesn’t realize it, but he has Asperger’s, which causes him to be a little socially inept and very strict with scheduling.  What Don wants is a wife, so he plans to find one. . . Through the Wife Project.  What is the Wife Project? Basically a super long questionnaire with which Don expects to find his wife.

But when his friend Gene sets him up with Rosie, Don is thrown for a loop.

I loved this novel.  Don is hilarious, lovable, and super smart.  Rosie is caring, spunky, and hilarious.  The Rosie Project hides within it an unconventional love story, and one that is begging you to read it.

The only negative?  The ending fell a teensy bit flat for me.

Interested in getting your own copy? Check it out on Amazon & Indiebound. I get a small percentage if you purchase from those links, and it doesn’t cost you any extra.

  1. I just finished this book last night and loved it as well! I know what you mean about the ending though. I felt that too but I wasn’t sure if it was because I was reading it on the train and had to stop and restart the last 30 or so pages, so I kind of lost the momentum!

  4. The first thing done by the divorce lawyer is to provide you with
    the separation agreement including division of your assets, spousal support
    and more until a final decision is made. The treatments for this disease are very expensive.
    Many people will become frustrated looking at something extremely
    challenging, but this is expected most of the time.
