Genna’s November Recommendation

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

the rosie projectLooking for a feel-good romantic comedy? Look no further. Simsion creates a lovely, heartwarming, and scientifically crafted novel. It’s the story of a genetics professor Don Tillman (who has Aspberger’s but remains unaware of his condition despite everyone around him knowing) and his opposite in almost every way: Rosie. Don goes to the supermarket each week to buy the same ingredients to create the same meals each day, in order to be more efficient. He follows a rigid schedule of sleep, exercise, and eating. His life is very methodical, and he struggles to find a mate.

He decides to craft a questionnaire designed to help him select a wife, dubbing it The Wife Project. His coworker sends him Rosie: a girl who doesn’t follow any schedule or pattern. She shakes up his habits, but Don finds that this is a good thing.

This is such a quick and fun read! A great break especially if you’ve just read something longer and more involved. They are making a movie out of this already.
