Publisher's Summary

A first-date dud, socially awkward, and overly fond of quick-dry clothes, genetics professor Don Tillman has given up on love, until a chance encounter gives him an idea.

He will design a questionnaire - a 16-page, scientifically researched questionnaire - to uncover the perfect partner. She will most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker or a late-arriver. Rosie is all these things. She is also fiery and intelligent, strangely beguiling, and looking for her biological father - a search that a DNA expert might just be able to help her with.

The Rosie Project is a romantic comedy like no other. It is arrestingly endearing and entirely unconventional, and it will make you want to drink cocktails.

Give it a chance

When I started listening to this book, I couldn't stand it. I almost returned it, on the advice of my friend (who loved the book) I stuck with it. I'm so glad that I did! It's a charming story!

Good for what it was. Not my type of story

Any additional comments?

This book was a selection by my non smut book club. I am giving this book 3.5 stars not because it's a bad book but because had I to actually read it instead of listened to it I surely would not have been interested enough to complete the book.<br/><br/>I really liked the concept of the book and most of the characters. The main character (Don) was endearingly funny to me and I loved the interaction between himself and Rosie. I found the story to be a little predictable and thus did not compel me to become addicted to it as I would require from a 4/5 star book.

The reader brings the story to life.

Who was the most memorable character of The Rosie Project and why?

Don was certainly the most memorable character. His thought processes were hysterical!

What a Pleasant Surprise

I found this book very amusing. The main character was strange but so endearing. I really recommend this one.
