‘The Rosie Project’ by Graeme Simsion

The Rosie Project is Graeme Simsion’s debut novel about Don Tillman, a sensible yet socially inept professor who decides to take a scientific approach to finding a life partner.

Dubbing it the Wife Project, Don expects that the search for his true love requires the same calculated logic he uses throughout his life.

Don, who has the developmental disorder Asperger’s syndrome, assumes that his ideal match is someone he can be with without ever changing anything about himself.

Then Don meets Rosie, a free-spirited woman who fails to meet his compatibility requirements.

But Don soon realizes that in order to find the perfect mate, he needs to be flexible.
