Product description

Review

"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. . . . [an] immensely enjoyable novel."
--"Booklist "(starred review)

"It's natural to be wary of a novel that's been the target of such gushy praise. Publishers in at least thirty-eight countries have snapped up the rights to "The Rosie Project," which has been touted as a 'publishing phenomenon, ' an 'international sensation' and no less than 'the feel-good hit of 2013.' Well, squelch your inner cynic: the hype is justified. Australian Graeme Simsion has written a genuinely funny novel. . . . This is classic rom-com."
--"The Washington Post"

"An utterly winning screwball comedy. . . . If you're looking for sparkling entertainment along the lines of "Where'd You Go, Bernadette" and "When Harry Met Sally," The Rosie Project is this season's fix. . . . This charming, warmhearted escapade, which celebrates the havoc--and pleasure--emotions can unleash, offers amusement aplenty. Sharp dialogue, terrific pacing, physical hijinks, slapstick, a couple to root for, and more twists than a pack of Twizzlers--it's no surprise that "The Rosie Project" is bound for the big screen. But read it first."
--NPR.org

Praise for "The Rosie Project"
"Sometimes you just need a smart love story that will make anyone, man or woman, laugh out loud."
--"San Francisco Chronicle"

"Move over, Sheldon Cooper. There's a new brilliant, socially inept scientist poised to win over a huge audience, and his name is Don Tillman, in "The Rosie Project." . . .This rom-com is bursting with warmth, emotional depth, and intentional humor." (A-)

"Filled with humor and plenty of heart, "The Rosie Project" is a delightful reminder that all of us, no matter how we're wired, just want to fit in."
--"Chicago Tribune"
"Simsion's attention to detail brings to life Don's wonderful, weird world. Instead of using Don's Asperger's syndrome as a fault, or a lead-in to a tragic turn of events, Simsion creates a heartwarming story of an extraordinary man learning to live in an ordinary world, and to love. As Don would say, this book is 'great fun.'"

"One of the year's most promising and original novelists."
--"The Wall Street Journal"
"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. . . . [an] immensely enjoyable novel."
--"Booklist "(starred review)
"Read-out-loud laughter begins by page two in Simsion's debut novel about a thirty-nine-year-old genetics professor with Asperger's--but utterly unaware of it--looking to solve his Wife Problem. . . . What follows are his utterly clueless but more often thoroughly charming exploits in exploring his capacity for romance. . . . This novel is perfectly timed."
--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
"Polished debut fiction. . . . Simsion can plot a story, set a scene, write a sentence, finesse a detail. A pity more popular fiction isn't this well written. . . . A sparkling, laugh-out-loud novel."
--"Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)
"[A] bright, whip-snappingly funny romantic comedy. . . . Readers, too, will push eagerly through the narrative, and at the end they'll have one thought: thank goodness there's a sequel."
--"Library Journal"

Praise for Graeme Simsion
"Don Tillman helps us believe in possibility, makes us proud to be human beings, and the bonus is this: he keeps us laughing like hell."
--Matthew Quick, author of "The Silver Linings Playbook"
""The Rosie Project" is the best, most honestly told love story I've read in a long time."
--Kristin Hannah, author of "Fly Away" and "Home Front"
" "
"A world so original, in a story so compelling, I defy you not to read through the night. Read this glorious novel now, in the moment, where it lives."
--Adriana Trigiani, author of "The Shoemaker's Wife"
""The Rosie Project" is an upbeat, quirky, impertinent gem of a read. As the novel makes its logically irrefutable progression, readers will become enchanted by what may well be the world's first rigorously evidence-based romantic comedy."
--Chris Cleave, author of "Little Bee" and "Gold"
"This clever and joyful book charmed me from the first. Professor Tillman is an unlikely romantic hero but a brave, winning soul, and his quest to find a wife goes to show that rationality is no match for love."
--Maggie Shipstead, author of "Seating Arrangements"
"Graeme Simsion has created an unforgettable and charming character unique in fiction. Don Tillman is on a quirky, often hilarious, always sincere quest to logically discover what is ultimately illogical--love. Written in a superbly pitch-perfect voice, "The Rosie Project" had me cheering for Don on every page. I'm madly in love with this book! Trust me, you will be, too."
--Lisa Genova, author of "Still Alice "and "Left Neglected"
"With the demands of children and work, it's rare that I find myself so caught up in a novel that I literally cannot put it down--not for food, nor for conversation, nor even for sleep. Charming and delightful, I was so enamored of "The Rosie Project "that I read it in a single, marathon sitting."
--Ayelet Waldman, author of "Red Hook Road, Bad Mother" and "Love and Other Impossible Pursuits"
" "
"Although there are many laughs to be found in this marvelous novel, "The Rosie Project "is a serious reflection on our need for companionship and identity. Don Tillman is as awkward and confusing a narrator as he is lovable and charming."
--John Boyne, author of "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas"
"Charming, funny and heartwarming, a gem of a book."
--Marian Keyes, author of "The Brightest Star in the Sky" and "This Charming Man"
"I couldn't put this book down. It's one of the most quirky and endearing romances I've ever read. I laughed the whole way through. And now I want to meet Don!"
--Sophie Kinsella, author of the "Shopaholic "series and "Wedding Night "
"Graeme Simsion has achieved the impossible and created an entirely new kind of romantic hero. I wanted to race through The Rosie Project, but had to make myself slow down from my usual reading pace, because of the number of sly jokes that I almost missed. A lovely, original, and very funny read."
--Jojo Moyes, author of "Me Before You"

"
"The Rosie Effect
is a celebration of the best attributes to be found in a friend, a husband, or a father, regardless of the way they are expressed."
--"Booklist" (starred review)

"

"In his bestselling debut, "The Rosie Project," Simsion introduced the delightfully original character of Don Tillman, an Australian geneticist with Asperger's syndrome who sets out to find the perfect wife by using the scientific method. In the sequel, set in New York, Don takes on impending fatherhood in the same clumsy yet endearing way, with results both funny and moving. This charming new chapter in the Tillman chronicles leaves you hoping it won't be the last."
--"People"

"The hilarious follow-up to "The Rosie Project," one of the best novels I've read in ages. There's no sophomore slump here. Simsion brings back some of the best characters and gags from the first novel while also bringing in enough new elements to keep it fresh. It's a funny novel that also made me think about relationships: what makes them work and how we have to keep investing time and energy to make them better. A sweet, entertaining, and thought-provoking book."
--Bill Gates, "Top Five Books of 2014"
