Here's the thing: I am very tired. Not sleepy, precisely. But fatigued. Simply exhausted. This is an important caveat because of what is to come in this review.
To put it simply, I do not have the energy to put up a front. No snarky persona will ensue. I will not be cracking jokes at the expense of this book or anything else.
And all that leaves is So I have to say my real and true thoughts about this book, and my real and true thoughts are that I read it nearly two mon Here's the thing: I am very tired.
So I have to say my real and true thoughts about this book, and my real and true thoughts are that I read it nearly two months ago and took no notes and found it not particularly memorable, and so I only have one real monster of a cheesy thought to send your way: This book is nice because it concludes there's someone for everyone.
Even the world's most hard to like people can fall in love and go to New York and go on a quest and otherwise live out their best rom-com-y dreams.
And that's nice. Bottom line: I need to go into a coma. Nothing extreme. Just like Oct 28, Whitney Atkinson rated it liked it Shelves: romance , read-in , unhauled.
This book started out really great. For the first 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 This book started out really great.
Don was such an unreliable narrator and what was an attempt at making a unique character read as someone who was creepy and deranged, and I disagree with how this book ended.
I'm gonna have to ponder this one for a while. Very mixed feelings. View all 4 comments. 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 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 This book made me laugh. Don Tillman is a brilliant scientist, but a hapless socialist I mean that with no political leanings, Don literally sucks at being social.
Rosie is beautiful, smart and nowhere close to what Don sees as a perfect life partner. This book is one of those rare gems that most people could relate to on some level.
Does he love me? Does she love me? Can two people really be destined for one another? Is mankind meant for monogamy? Can anyone really love?
Written with a one of a kind voice, you experience all of Don's ups and downs as he over-analyses, fears and then embraces change and eventually learns how to love.
This is a beautiful love story. View 1 comment. Nov 12, Diane rated it really liked it. 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 I was completely charmed by this novel.
Meanwhile, he bumps into a woman named Rosie, who Don agrees is totally unsuitable, but he likes spending time with her anyway. This novel is essentially a romantic comedy, so if you like that genre, you will probably enjoy this.
The writing is clever and amusing, and I frequently laughed out loud while reading. Of course Don makes social gaffes, but what I liked is how practical and resilient he was in such situations.
He recognized his gifts, such as being smart, dedicated and having an excellent memory, and he used those talents to help him navigate this new world involving Rosie.
I was pleased to hear that a sequel was released earlier this year, and I look forward to reading more about Don and Rosie's adventures.
Favorite Quotes "A questionnaire! Such an obvious solution. A purpose-built, scientifically valid instrument incorporating current best practice to filter out the time wasters, the disorganized, the ice-cream discriminators, the visual-harassment complainers, the crystal gazers, the horoscope readers, the fashion obsessives, the religious fanatics, the vegans, the sports watchers, the creationists, the smokers, the scientifically illiterate, the homeopaths, leaving, ideally, the perfect partner, or realistically, a manageable short list of candidates.
It's a variant. It's potentially a major advantage. Asperger's syndrome is associated with organization, focus, innovative thinking, and rational detachment.
Interactions with psychiatrists and psychologists What they really mean is that I should give in to them.
I am perfectly happy to detect, recognize, and analyze emotions. This is a useful skill and I would like to be better at it.
Occasionally an emotion can be enjoyed — the gratitude I felt for my sister, who visited me even during the bad times, the primitive feeling of well-being after a glass of wine — but we need to be vigilant that emotions do not cripple us.
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! He never believed that love, romance and marriage was for him. But when a f 4.
But when a friend comments on his likeliness of being an excellent husband, he rethinks his possibilities. Because of his lack of social awareness he reaches out to his friend and co-worker, a professor of psychology, who is experienced in human relationships.
They devise a plan to help Don find a wife, and his buddy along with his wife advises Don nearly every step of the way. In his quest to find the perfect wife, he creates an online dating profile with an extensive survey based on a wide range of desirable attributes, but in the meantime while he is waiting for Ms Perfect he devotes his time to helping a lady named Rosie find her biological father.
This story had a lot of fun twists and turns, and a few predictable parts. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey these two took that ultimately had them discovering more about themselves and what is truly important.
At first I couldn't imagine how the author was going to convince me that these two seemingly opposite types could fall in love and have a chance for happily-ever-after, but by the end I was a believer.
The Rosie Project is less of a romance and more of a tale of one mans journey to find love and discover some truths about himself. By the way, I listened to this one on audiobook, and loved the narrator!
I highly recommended the audio format. View all 23 comments. 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. View all 14 comments.

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. Rosie had taken over Buddy Read with Murugesh. Rosie had taken over. Don was just soo naive, cute and adorable.
Something serious said by him, had me laughing. My wardrobe would be overflowing. The ending is just soo perfect and even with the light tones the message in this book is apt.

Because in reality that scene was so hilarious and entertaining! All in all, I had a beatific couple of days reading this book.
It is a smart book with smart characters doing intelligent things thinking intelligent thoughts while simultaneously un-cleverly living their lives.
And though I know it can be silly and condescending at times but you gotta admit, it has the charm factor down pat.
It reminds me of the first two seasons of The Big Bang Theory. Emphasis on the first two seasons because after that the show starts to lost its way and got quite misogynistic.
Unlike The Rosie Project which held out pretty well to the end. It got me thinking about basic human instincts and how we are involuntarily influenced by our DNA.
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".
Enter Rosie Jarman, a 29 year-old psychology grad student who "interrupts" Don's world dramatically. Rosie is Don's polar opposite.
She smokes, drinks like a fish, hates working out, fashionably late, and "suffers" from emotional problems. Rosie needs Don's help. She is looking for her biological father.
Her mother died in a car accident when she was a little girl, and she never learned his true identity. Don is so rigid and precise and Rosie is so untidy and doesn't like to mince words.
Will the old saying, "opposites attract" become a factor in Don and Rosie's new friendship? Well, you'll just have to read this hilarious and sweetly unique novel to find out.
I loved this romantic comedy and it's main character, Don Tillman, a socially inept genetics professor. Deciding he would like a wife he devises a questionnaire for his "wife project".
He filters out all the unsuitable candidates through an extensive list of questions. Just hilarious. His best and only friend, Gene, another professor, sends Rosie his way although unbeknown to Don is totally unsuitable according to his criteria.
There friendship starts a wonderful and charming set of events. I lis I loved this romantic comedy and it's main character, Don Tillman, a socially inept genetics professor.
I listened to the audiobook and loved the narrator. He sounded in every way the undiagnosed Aspie who is wired differently than those of us not On the Spectrum.
Don is very smart, socially awkward, relentless in his scheduling every moment of his day, and totally loyal. One of my favorite scenes was when Rosie and Don were bartending.
Don memorized a bartenders guide and could quote any drink with its entire ingredients to his customers. Quite funny and amusing. I thank all of my GR friends who rated this book so high.
I never would have read this otherwise. People must have thought me strange as I'm driving to Maine for a family visit and having so much fun laughing while listening to The Rosie Project.
Highly recommend for everyone, whether you like romantic comedy or not. A big 5 out of 5 stars. View all 16 comments.
Shelves: humour. 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 4. However, his project is put on the backburner when he meets the very unconventional Rosie and helps her out with her own project.
The writing style was great. As I'm currently in academia, some of the depictions of academics and their thought process really made me laugh.
I liked Don's personal development through the course of the book, and also learning how he sees life. Although it wasn't explicitly stated, I think Don has Asperger's Syndrome.
I don't know much about this condition but reading it helped me realize not everyone thinks and sees things in the same way.
I also loved the deadpan writing of the narrator. I think the story will get you thinking about a lot of things, for example empathy, authenticity, human connection.

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 EXCERPT: I may have found a solution to the Wife Problem.
The preparation could be time-shared with lunch consumption, but on the designated evening I had scheduled ninety-four minutes to clean my bathroom.
I was faced with a choice of three options, none of them satisfactory. Cleaning the bathroom after the lecture, resulting in loss of sleep with a consequent reduction in mental and physical performance.
Rescheduling the cleaning until the following Tuesday, resulting in an eight-day period of compromised bathroom hygiene and consequent risk of disease.
Refusing to deliver the lecture, resulting in damage to my friendship with Gene. I presented the dilemma to Gene, who, as usual, had an alternative solution.

Just don't mention me. How can I answer without mentioning you? And if she mentions me, say nothing. Eva would enjoy having her competence recognized and might even be suitable for a permanent role, which would free up an average of minutes per week in my schedule.
THE BLURB: An international sensation, this hilarious, feel-good novel is narrated by an oddly charming and socially challenged genetics professor on an unusual quest: to find out if he is capable of true love.
MY THOUGHTS: I always studiously avoid anything referred to as hilarious, as i usually find them just plain stupid.
The Rosie Project is the exception to the rule. I found myself howling with laughter in public places , and once, rolling around on the floor!
He doesn't require love an emotional complication he can well live without and does not recognise , but he has a stringent list of requirements for his intended and develops a scientific questionnaire to weed out all those 'undesirables' without having to resort to the disastrous dates of the past.
I quickly searched my mind for an interesting fact. A great read 8:D All opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own personal opinions.

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'.

In order to do so, he creates a questionnaire in order to filter out all unsuitable women. Though he is described as a Cary Grant lookalike, I read him more as Zachary Levi.
It could either be terrible or awesome. As Don becomes more self aware, he notices similarities within himself and those he has read up on.

After all, why let emotions cloud his judgment when science already has all the answers? These reviews say the author has made light of a medical condition or the author has completely gotten his facts wrong or the author should have written a serious book rather than a comedy if he was going to broach this subject matter or the author is simply a huge ass or blah blah blah blah blah.
In fact, I knew ZILCH about this book except that my friends here at Goodreads were reading it in droves and they would not dare steer me wrong.
My assumption was correct. This book is stinking adorable! I loved the fresh perspective on the age old boy meets girl story.
If you want to read something that will change the world or at least your life , The Rosie Project is more than likely the wrong choice.

I found it quite predictable in places and I didn't fall in love with the characters. There were times I felt the story dragged but this was possibly because I became bored with the narrative.
If I am honest about this one I think perhaps it may come across better if read than in audio format as I think it dragged in the audio version and probably better suited for reading.
The Rosie Project was a hit for many but just didn't work for me. The wonderful thing about being a reader is that while I may not have loved the book I rarely regret reading any books as there is still the prospect of an entertaining discussion with friends.

As time progresses, Rosie begins to challenge more and more of Don's habits and assumptions, and he is surprised when she reveals that she is working as a bartender in order to pay her way through university while she works on her doctorate in psychology.
He also finds that part of the reason that Rosie is so desperate to find her biological father is because of her unsatisfactory relationship with her stepfather Phil.
Don also finally meets a woman who fulfills all of his criteria, but he discovers that he is completely unattracted to her.
Eventually, the "Father Project" eliminates all but a few people, two of which require that Don and Rosie travel to New York City.
Once there, Rosie forces Don to abandon his schedules in exchange for a spontaneous trip through the city, which he finds enjoyable.
This culminates in the two almost having sex, only for Rosie to change her mind because she is unsure that a relationship with Don could actually work out.
The two return to Australia where Don continues the "Father Project" and realises that his friend Gene may actually be Rosie's father since he also attended the party as the genetics tutor for Rosie's mother's medical cohort and is also very promiscuous.
After some thinking, Don decides that he will test Gene and that he will also try to persuade Rosie to marry him [Don], as he has discovered that he is genuinely attracted to her.
Despite trying to change to fit what he believes she needs, Don is rejected by Rosie when he says that he does not feel love like others do.
However, this rejection causes Don to realises that he actually does love Rosie. He also decides to confront her father Phil over her father issues, as Rosie felt neglected because she believed that Phil prioritised his career over her and failed to fulfil a promise to go to Disneyland , a move that she views as representative of their relationship as a whole.
Rosie inevitably discovers that Gene may be her real father and she confronts him over this along with his wife Claudia, who attempted to ignore his womanising.
Don arrives at the scene just in time to watch Phil punch Gene as Phil had been dating Rosie's mother at the time of her conception , after which Don and Rosie reconcile and she agrees to marry him.
Rosie also reconciles with her father Phil and after she marries Don, the two of them move to New York to start anew. The book ends with Don running a final test on a sample of Phil's DNA.
This test confirms that Phil was her biological father after all, and the whole issue was raised by Rosie's mother because of Gene's negligence in explaining to his students the rules of eye colour inheritance.
In September , it was confirmed that Sony Pictures optioned film rights to The Rosie Project. Weber were later brought on to work on the final script, with Phil Lord and Christopher Miller set to potentially direct.
In , TriStar Pictures announced that Ben Taylor would direct the film. Critical reception for The Rosie Project has been mostly positive and the book was a bestseller in several countries.
Notably, however, books from the Don Tillman series have attracted criticism for its portrayal of implied  autism spectrum disorder in the main character of Don Tillman.
Spectrum author Sara Luterman calling the book, "the worst new book I have read in the past three years". All portray clueless, quirky white male geniuses to represent autism".
