The Rosie Project,
This review is from: The Rosie Project (Hardcover)
I'm a little ashamed to admit that I allowed myself to get distracted from this book. I got three quarters of the way through, it ended up in a different location to me and I started another book whilst I awaited its return. Since that moment, I've read more books than I count on one hand.....! Now, that isn't at all like me. I usually get into a book, and I struggle to put it down until I have absorbed every last word. I mistook my casual attitude to returning to it as disinterest, but having returned to it today, I was wrong.
The main character is lovable, in an extraordinarily different way. With undiagnosed asperger's syndrome, Don is a very special man!
In this book, you'll experience a number of projects....the Wife Project, the Father Project and as the name suggests, the Rosie Project. I found myself wondering when the Rosie Project would begin and I had to wait until the end of the fourth paragraph on page 256 to see those three little words 'the Rosie Project'
Funny, perfectly pitched, not your typical romantic comedy but it is packed full of real life.
