    1. ‘The Rosie Project’ by Graeme Simsion is so wonderful. I’m going to attempt to enumerate my enjoyment of the novel; 1. Don Tillman is an Associate Professor of genetics at the University of Melbourne. He has a black-belt in Akikido, and can cook a mean lobster salad. He also has Asperger syndrome – but he doesn’t know that. Don just thinks that there’s something missing that leaves him baffled by human behaviour and unappealing to other people (especially the opposite sex). But after [...]

    2. Sheldon in love.Adorable and fun. Probably one of the most enjoyable chick lit books I've read, ironically, written by a man. On the other hand, not nearly enough sex in it.

    3. This does for Autism what Pretty Woman did for prostitutes. It uses it for entertainment, it plays on it for laughter. It's a 1970's sitcom of a book.The character of (Shel)Don feels like little more that fan-fiction of The Big Bang Theory and Rosie seems like the perfect emulation of The Cool Girl as described in Gone Girl. She's too trite and quirky to be believable. Don himself is simply a figure of fun, he moves form scene to scene for our amusement in a "what will he do now?" manner as Juli [...]

    4. What a shame!What a shame Graeme Simsion wrote this offering "quickly" and that he went with a "comedy rather than a drama".What a shame that the opportunity to educate and illuminate was squandered and traded for gratuitous laughs ,extreme generalisations and blatant stereotyping.My initial delight at realising the subject matter of this book meant I was immediately enrolled in ' the project'. A third of the way into the book, I became uncomfortable with the tenor and theme. The premise that hi [...]

    5. Don Tillman is an Associate Professor of Genetics with (probably) Asperger’s Syndrome who has decided that, as he is nearing 40, he will solve “the wife problem” (ie. not being married) by creating a questionnaire that will ascertain, for him, the perfect wife and then marry her. That is until he meets Rosie, a grad student working part-time in a gay bar who’s looking for her biological father, and slowly Don’s “Wife Project” becomes “The Rosie Project” as he realises he’s fa [...]

    6. Actual rating : 3.5 starsFrom the moment I finished it I knew I had one critical task to perform : To review this project book. Although the timing is particularly annoying, I realized that the several options I faced made my choice incredibly clear. ➊ Not reviewing this book, resulting in damage to this book's fame, which would be appalling due to the fact that it's fucking awesome.➋ Rescheduling this review to another time, resulting in loss of memories and leading to a probable abandonmen [...]

    7. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was very amusing and clever. The protagonist Don is definitely a clichéd version of someone with Asperger's, but I think he had to be for the purposes of the novel. He sits on the very end of the spectrum and embodies every single stereotypical attribute of an Aspie. At one point I cringed at the end of the book when he is struggling about whether he feels love or not. Not accurate for someone with Asperger's - they actually have intense emotions but are unabl [...]

    8. Ultracharming & very very, uh, cute. The singular voice of the main character is enough to convince the reader that a love story exists in anything. This rom-com takes some DNA from various films, especially 1997's "As Good As It Gets." Worth a read, its verry likely to become a film soon (the novel was originally written as a, yup, screenplay!).

    9. How addictive was this book? I read it in a day - a day when I should have been doing other things.It's a fun, quirky and erudite love story. It's laugh-out-loud funny and unexpectedly touching.Don is a wonderfully offbeat narrative character and Rosie is his perfect foil. Graeme Simsion writes both characters pitch perfect.I think one of the reasons the story is so appealing is that it's written by a man, from a man's perspective. And it's definitely not lad lit.This book is going to be a huge [...]

    10. I actually ended up enjoying this book much more than I originally thought I would. At the forefront it seems extremely sexist and not that great plot-wise, but it definitely addresses those issues and works through them with character development, which I found to be fantastic.The only thing I'm not sure on is the depiction of Asperger's. I am not an expert in any way, so I'm not sure if this portrayal was accurate/correct/well done. If someone wants to tell me that would be awesome!Overall enj [...]

    11. Read this over two very busy days. I fell in love with Don, the protagonist. I loved the ways he measured and evaluated life. I want to embrace his rigid meal plan and have lobster in my bathtub every Tuesday night.Although Don is a highly esteemed genetics scientist, he views life with a beautiful naivety, he knows the workings and technicalities of people, but just can't grasp that element that makes us chaotic, individual works of art. And I laughed! Yep, I finally came to understand the inte [...]

    12. My first note written about this novel is a 1 ★ intolerably woeful but a night's sleep has made me feel a little more generous so I've amended it to 2★it was ok. The whole premise felt predictable, horribly predictable, I found that main character incredibly annoying and the humor did not amuse me. I know I am swimming against the tide of most readers, especially my GR friends but it was just all very ho-hum for me. Sorry, folks. 2★

    13. This book started out really great. For the first 100 pages I was entertained and even got a kick out of the quirky narration. Then I sat back and thought about who I was reading into the mind of. Don is a sort of disturbed man. I was very uncomfortable throughout the last half of this book because he needed serious help dealing with the world that he wasn't receiving. Rather, people-- his friends-- would watch his actions and laugh. Don was such an unreliable narrator and what was an attempt at [...]

    14. This book was so completely adorable and had me actually laughing out loud several times!It's told through the POV of Don, a scientist with Asperger's who is basically Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang theory. He compiles an extensive (and logical) list of the qualities he wants in a wife to start "The Wife Project," but gets sidetracked by "The Father Project" of a twenty-something woman named Rosie. Their story takes place around a mission to grab sneaky DNA samples from a bunch of men in order [...]

    15. 4.5 'Nerds Need Love Too' stars. This wasn't a traditional romance novel, but I enjoyed the romantic aspect of this story quite a bit. There was also a fun and interesting journey with Don and Rosie gathering dozens of samples of DNA to determine who might be Rosie's biological father. It made me laugh quite a few times! The hero, Don Tillman, is a 39 y/o socially inept scientist who lives his life based on strict rules. He never believed that love, romance and marriage was for him. But when a f [...]

    16. This book made me laugh. Not many books can do that. This was a truly delightful book to read and I would never ask for a minute of the time spent reading it back. Made all the more amazing by the fact that it is the first novel of Melbourne writer Graeme Simsion, The Rosie Project will rank highly amongst my 2013 reads. Written from a unique perspective, this is one of the few, if not the only, romantic comedies with a male protagonist. And not only male, but autistic. Don Tillman is a brillian [...]

    18. Buddy Read with Murugesh.This book is Absolutely Adorable. I think I had a BIG GRIN the entire time I was reading this book.Don Tillman at the start reminded me strongly of Sheldon Cooper from 'The Big Bang Theory', he has strong resemblance to Sheldon but still has characteristics of his own, and very cute ones I must say!Don meets Rosie and his life changes for the best."In less than fifteen minutes, my entire schedule had been torn apart, shattered, rendered redundant. Rosie had taken over."R [...]

    19. I was completely charmed by this novel. Sure, it's basically Sheldon Cooper Tries to Find a Wife, but I liked it.Don Tillman is a genetics professor in his late 30s who sets out to find a spouse by devising an elaborate questionnaire. Don is very fussy and regimented in his life, and allusions are made to him having Asperger's. Don thinks he can weed out any unsuitable partners and find someone well-matched for him. Meanwhile, he bumps into a woman named Rosie, who Don agrees is totally unsuitab [...]

    20. I enjoyed every single minute of this book! I knew it'd be a favorite because I've lived it! There is a "Don" in my life, and I was very clearly put on the "unsuitable" list, but we've remained good friends. It's hard not to love these sort of characters (real or fictitious).I wager that this will be a film in the not too distant future. Even though it's an Australian book, I can't help but peg Lizzy Caplan as Rosie. *sigh* Just need a few more minutes to let it all sink in

    21. Don Tillman is an absolute hoot! I loved his odd, technical way of speaking. Don is a professor of genetics and he's looking for someone to share his life with. He's socially-awkward, lonely, and over- analytical to a fault. He's pushing 40 and he's had a difficult time in the romance department. One day, he decides to start a project - which he hilariously calls, "The Wife Project". It's basically a detailed, yet rambling questionnaire of the requirements/preferences he's searching for in a lon [...]

    22. An unconventional take on the Rom-Com genre, but with the same tropes.Here we have Don Tillman (view spoiler)[ No, not Don Draper. Though I will be sad when Mad Men finishes in a few weeks. I mean, where else am I going to get my sartorial inspirations from? Oh, right: GQ(hide spoiler)], a genetics researcher who has his life organized to the last minute and finally decides to take a wife. In order to do so, he creates a questionnaire in order to filter out all unsuitable women. (Why he doesn’ [...]

    23. 4.5 starsI went through a fluffy novel/chick lit phase during my late teens and early twenties and vowed I would never pick up such a book again. However, this book came highly recommended so I decided to give it a go.I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Don Tillman is a socially inept university professor, with very few friends and an extremely rigid lifestyle. He has designed a questionnaire, "The Wife Project", to find himself a wife. Unfortunately his standards are incredibly high. Howev [...]

    24. This was a great read, really engaging, the characters were sweet and quirky, the main character is a good guy with various issues, he was so real though and was happy to be himself. I found myself really gunning for him! Rosie sweeps into his life which places him into a bit of a spin, life is about to change, and it's a fun ride whilst this happens. She was great too, just like in real life it's nice to meet people who buck the trend and don't have to be like 'everybody else'. I recommend this [...]

    25. Don Tillman is a 39-year old genetics professor who doesn't fit in well in social settings. When a friend tells him he'd make a good husband, he proceeds on a mission to find a suitable wife. As he proceeds with the Wife Project, another friend sends him a potential candidate, Rosie Jarman, who couldn't be more unsuitable (based on Don's criteria) but he becomes intrigued with her desire to find her biological father. As the two collaborate on the Father Project, they begin an often hilarious an [...]

    26. EXCERPT: I may have found a solution to the Wife Problem. As with so many scientific breakthroughs, the answer was obvious in retrospect. But had it not been for a series of unscheduled events, it is unlikely I would have discovered it.The sequence was initiated by Gene's insisting I give a lecture on Asperger's syndrome that he had previously agreed to deliver himself. The timing was extremely annoying. The preparation could be time-shared with lunch consumption, but on the designated evening I [...]

    27. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/a/k/a “Sheldon Cooper Finds a Wife” Don is a creature of habit. His work, exercise, dinner, clothes, well. EVERYTHING is scheduled to the second with zero variation. The only time Don has really ventured out of his comfort zone was when he befriended Daphne – a lonely elderly neighbor whose husband had been put in a nursing home. Before Daphne’s own health declines, she proclaims what a wonderful husband Don will be to some lucky girl. It’s at t [...]

    28. I read this book for my hometown book club.This book is about a professor of genetics, who has Aspergers and has never been on a second date, because of his lifelong difficulty with social rituals has convinced him that he is simply not wired for romance. However, he knows the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and creates The Wife Project. According to the survey his future wife needs to be punctual, successful and not a smoker. Then he meets Rosie Jarman, who has none [...]
