The Rosie Project
Book #57 Read in 2014
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Don, the main character in this book, was very similar to the character of Sheldon on the TV show "The Big Bang Theory". Don is a geneticist who has some trouble being socially acceptable...he likes to keep a rigid schedule, he does not filter verbally and he is looking for a wife...so he creates "the wife project"....surveying women in his search for the perfect partner. Who he finds is Rosie. She does not fit well into his categories and has a project of her own: "the father project"; Rosie hopes that Don can help DNA test several possible biological fathers for her.
This book had a lot of humor to it and interesting characters. Simsion wrote Don well. The secondary characters were interesting as well. I enjoyed this book.
