Synopsis

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is a story about love, life and lobster every Tuesday..."Marvellous." (John Boyne). "Original, clever and perfectly written." (Jill Mansell). "Adorable." (Marian Keyes). "An upbeat, quirky, impertinent gem of a read." (Chris Cleave). 'I'm not good at understanding what other people want.' 'Tell me something I don't know ...' 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? "Don Tillman is one of the most endearing, charming and fascinating literary characters I have met in a long time." (The Times). "Hilarious, unlikely and heartbreaking." (Easy Living). "Touching and laugh-out-loud funny - think The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time meets Silver Linings Playbook." (Stylist). "Funny, endearing, and pure, wonderful escapism." (Independent). "A sweet, funny rom-com...You'll be willing Don and Rosie on every step of the way." (Marie Claire). "Original, charming and very funny." (Woman & Home). "A comic triumph: clever, humane and tears-in-your-eyes funny. But best of all, The Rosie Project is a madly romantic love story." (Liz Jensen, author of The Rapture). "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 With the charm of Mark Haddon's. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and the romance of David Nicholls.
