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.

What a Pleasant Surprise

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

It's OK

Short; somewhat entertaining. Nothing outstanding. It was different from anything I have read but, once finished, it was just OK.

excellent story

excellent story, well written with a riveting and romantic storyline. The main character reminds me a bit of Sheldon Cooper on The big Bang theory.

Favourite

I have listened to this book three times now, and I love it more each time!! I think everyone has a little Don in them, and it’s truly relatable.

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.

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.
