61. The Rosie Project: Graeme Simsion

The Rosie Project (Don Tillman #1)

I read this as I have had it recommended to me by a few people and I fancied something light to distract me during some of my long baby feeds at the moment!

Don Tillman is an Australian genetics professor with a form of Aspergers syndrome, although he does not recognise it in himself. He wants to find a wife so comes up with an elaborate questionnaire for potential dates to complete, ensuring they are compatible with him in all areas from punctuality to ice cream flavours. Clearly, no one is going to live up to these exacting standards, especially not Rosie who is ‘sent his way’ by Don’s best friend Gene. However the kooky but beautiful Rosie intrigues Don who wants to help her find out who her biological father is and allows himself to get distracted from his usual rules and routines.

As I hoped this is a very light, easy read. Its quite funny in parts and although some of the plot is a little formulaic and predictable, it is enjoyable and sufficiently ‘attention grabbing’ to keep you turning the pages pretty quickly.
