While The Rosie Project might be categorized as a romance novel, it might fool you for most of the book. Don Tillman is a genetics professor and nowhere near what you would call a romantic individual. After an offhand comment from a colleague, Tillman sets off on a quest to meet his perfect match. Don is very calculated and believes that by using his own special set of parameters, he will indeed find his perfect match. After all, statistically speaking, there must be a match for everyone and as such, the Wife Project is born.
He meets Rosie Jarman. Rosie is searching for her biological father, something which Don would most definitely be qualified to assist. Don jumps to assist her, and the Father Project is born. The Wife Project falls by the wayside as an unlikely relationship blooms--after all, had Rosie taken Don’s test, she would most definitely have failed! What Don doesn’t realize is chemistry is more complicated than genetics. This is a hilarious read starring the most unlikely couple. Pick it up to see where the Wife Project, the Father Project, and The Rosie Project end up!
