The Rosie Project - Graeme Simsion
The art of love is never a science: Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet
socially inept professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a
wife. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches
all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a
sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers,
the smokers, the late arrivers.
Rosie Jarman possesses all
these qualities. Don easily disqualifies her as a candidate for The Wife
Project (even if she is “quite intelligent for a barmaid”). But Don is
intrigued by Rosie’s own quest to identify her biological father. When
an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on The Father
Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is
Rosie―and the realization that, despite your best scientific efforts,
you don’t find love, it finds you.
