Publisher's Summary

The art of love is never a science.: Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially inept professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs The Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a 16-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers. Yet, Rosie Jarman possesses all these qualities. Although Don easily disqualifies her as a suitable candidate (even if she is "quite intelligent for a barmaid"), he is intrigued by Rosie's own quest to identify her biological father. When an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on The Father Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie and the realisation that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love, it finds you.

    "Wonderfully engaging"

    Wonderful characters all round with a beautifully self aware protagonist. There are moments your heart breaks for Don alongside other times you realise his assessment of people and situations is hilariously spot on. A wonderfully realised character.

    "Terrific novel"

    I have both read and listened to this story ..... I enjoyed it so much! It is by far the best book I have read in a long time. I couldn't put it down! I have read the sequel and am now ready to listen to it too. Having a few male relatives with similar degrees of autism I found it fascinating and liberating. This book gave new insights and is written with brilliant humour that even my clever autistic husband found it amusing!

    Not my normal type of read but I enjoyed it. I liked the characters & found the Aspergers perspective interesting. Great look at relationships.

    "Great read"

    An excellent book that was well read. I did not know what to expect from this book but I found it funny, fast paced and although the plot was a bit predictable I would recommend it to male or female readers, especially those who are just a little bit on the spectrum!

    "Not my usual cup of tea"

    An interesting look inside this man's head. I didn't hate it and at times it was enjoyable. Not a bad story

    "Loved it"

    I find audio books hard but I was engaged with this one from start to finish. The combination of an engaging first person character and the narrators tone made it great.

    Story
    "Hilarious romance with a rational approach"

    After 5 minutes listening and a moment of so much laughter that I had to stop the book, I knew that the Rosie Project is a winner. As a person diagnosed as borderline Asperger's Syndrome (actual BMI 23), I quickly empathised with the difficulties that Assoc. Prof. Don Tilman has had through his life.

    As the story of a man whose brain works so differently to almost all others, and his long life journey to find his place in the world, including a romantic partner, the book works well. I liked the way the book gently stood up for people who do not conform to the neuro-typical, but did this within the context of a delightfully funny love story. Yes - aspys rule!

    "Entertain, fun and romantic"

    Is such an unusual love story. And yet so real. I think in some way we all are Don Tillman. Awesome to read.

    Excellent performance.
