The Rosie Project by Graeme C. Simsion

The Rosie Project by Graeme C. Simsion

Don approaches life as a series of problems needing to be solved.  He tries to find order in chaos and ways to make his life ever more efficient.  He eats the same meal each day of the week at the same time.  He has his schedule mapped out to the minute.  He doesn’t understand why others find his actions so strange.  He doesn’t really get what others are feeling.  One day Don, a genetics professor in Australia, decides to really put his mind behind solving the Wife Problem.  That’s when he creates the scientifically sound survey to weed out potential wife choices.  Since his best friend, and practically only friend, claims he’s being too picky with his analyses Don hands over the finished surveys for review.  A few days later his friend sends Rosie to Don.  After a short period of time Don comes to the conclusion that his friend has made a major error, Rosie is NOT wife material.  But Don is having fun because Rosie has a project of her own – the Father Project.  Rosie wants Don to help her find her biological dad.

Fans of the Big Bang Theory won’t want to miss this one.  This is Sheldon Cooper meeting his match in a smart, witty, fun and free-spirited woman who turns his life upside down.  And maybe that isn’t such a bad thing…
