Ʋ Hardcover @The Rosie Project: A Novel (Don Tillman Book 1) For Free ჴ Kindle Author Graeme Simsion ᅌ An Best Book of the Month, October 2013 Full of heart and humor, Simsions debut novel about a fussy, socially challenged mans search for the perfect wife is smart, breezy, quirky, andfun Sure, its the precise equivalent of a well crafted romantic comedy In fact, the book was clearly written with the big screen in mind, and the film rights have already been sold But youd have to be a pretty cynical reader not to fall for Don Tillman, a handsome genetics professor who has crafted a pathologically micromanaged life for himself but cant seem to score a second date After launching his Wife Project, which includes a hilarious questionnaire intended to weed out imperfect candidates smokers, makeup wearers, vegans incredibly annoying Don meets Rosie, a stunning, maddeningly disorganized bartender student whos looking for her biological father The reader knows just where the story is headed Rosies so wrong for Don, shes perfect Thats not giving anything away Half the fun of the book is watching pent up, Aspergers afflicted Don break free, thanks to Rosie, from his precisely controlled, annoyingly sensible, and largely humorless lifestyle By the final third, youre cheering for Don to shatter all his rules And youre casting the film Neal ThompsonStarred Review Genetics professor Don Tillmans ordered, predictable life is thrown into chaos when love enters the equation in this immensely enjoyable novel Never good with social cues, Don explains his difficulty empathizing with others, which he forthrightly says is a defining symptom of the autism spectrum, as a result of his brain simply being wired differently Diagnosis is not the issue here, as the reader is rooting for Don as he searches for ways to fit in With his fortieth birthday approaching, he designs a questionnaire to find a compatible female life partner using his overriding devotion to logic But he finds his quest competing with the request of a woman to discover the identity of her biological father The protagonist is passingly similar to that of Haddons The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time 2003 , but Simsions first novel is not as dark, focusing instead on the humor and significance of what makes us human Don is used to causing amusement or consternation in others, but as his self awareness and understanding grow, so do his efforts to behave appropriately Determined and unintentionally sweet, Don embarks on an optimistic and redemptive journey Funny, touching, and hard to put down, The Rosie Project is certain to entertain even as readers delve into deep themes For a book about a logic based quest for love, it has a lot of heart Bridget Thoreson The Rosie
