The Rosie Project - Rosie, Bk 1 Author:Graeme Simsion THE ART OF LOVE IS NEVER A SCIENCE - MEET DON TILLMAN, a thirty-nine-year-old brilliant yet socially challenged professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. And so, in the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-pa... more »ge, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers and the late-arrivers. She will be punctual and logical, most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver. Enter Rosie 'the world's most incompatible woman', who is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent and on a quest of her own. She is looking for her biological father, a search that a certain DNA expert might be able to help her with. Don's Wife Project takes a back burner to the Father Project, throwing Don's safe, ordered life into chaos. An unlikely relationship blooms, forcing the scientifically minded geneticist to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie, and the realization that love is not always what looks good on paper.
Hysterical, true to life love story! Just makes you feel good and that yes, there is someone for everyone. Don is a socially 'weird' professors of genetics and Rosie is sent to him by a colleague to be part of his 'wife project.' Rosie is all wrong for Don, she is a smoker! But, as with life, the ones who are wrong for us are actually quite right. A lovely mystery is involved too! I can't wait for the sequel!
