Product description

Review

"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. . . . It's not surprising that debut novelist Graeme Simsion has a background in science--The Rosie Project, already a success in Australia, seems almost precision engineered to keep readers turning pages. But unlike its unexpectedly lovable hero, this rom-com is bursting with warmth, emotional depth, and intentional humor." (A-)
--Entertainment Weekly

"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

"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.'"
--USA Today

"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

"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

"Another great favorite: The Rosie Project, a hilarious novel by Graeme Simsion. It's truly one of the funniest and most poignant novels I've read, and when you've finished it, there's an excellent sequel as well."
--Nicholas Kristof, New York Times Newsletter

"The Rosie Project opens as strongly as any comic novel I've read in a long time. . . . The book roars at high speed to its conclusion. . . . A highfunctioning but emotionally illiterate guy like Don makes a perfect unreliable narrator. . . . Happily, Simsion doesn't give Don an unbelievable emotional makeover. Our man just learns to live by a more complicated algorithm."
--Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

"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)

From the Inside Flap

Love isn't an exact science - but no one told Don Tillman.
A thirty-nine-year-old geneticist, Don's never had a second date. So he devises the Wife Project, a scientific test to find the perfect partner.
Enter Rosie - 'the world's most incompatible woman' - throwing Don's safe, ordered life into chaos. But what is this unsettling, alien emotion he's feeling?
