The Rosie Project

The Rosie Project is by Graeme Simsion. Don Tillman is an Australian professor of genetics. He is also "wired differently" from other people. He decides to find a "partner" and sets about circulating questionnaires to achieve this end. Then his best friend Gene introduces him to Rosie. Don quickly disqualifies her as a partner, but finds her search for her biological father fascinating. This story is funny and sad in turns. What is it that we are really looking for in a mate? Having taught students with Asperger's and autism, Don's behavior is familiar and believable. Fans of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time will enjoy this book. A charming love story!

Ratings: Adult - 10 out of 10 - P (profanity) - AC (mature thematic content).
