The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
This was a fun read for me and relatively quick. I found “The Rosie Project” on a list of reads inspired by TV shows. This one was recommended for those who like “The Big Bang Theory” because the main character, Don, is kind of like Sheldon. Here is the summary from the back of the book:
“Don Tillman, genetics professor, is getting married. Or he will be, when his sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey yields a candidate (see: the Wife Project). Designed to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the vegans, the late arrivers, Don’s questionnaire is for this socially challenged academic, the most logical method to find the perfect partner.
Enter Rosie Jarman.
Don quickly disqualifies her as a potential wife but is drawn into Rosie’s quest to find her biological father (see: the Father Project). When something like a friendship develops, Don must confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie and the decidedly unscientific conclusion that sometimes you don’t find love, it finds you.”
