While away on a long weekend in Noosa visiting my husband’s sister and her family from London I managed to finish my book club book -The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.
I loved it. It’s a light, humorous, easy to read story about Don Tillman, an awkward and straight to the point genetics professor and Rosie Jarman, a barmaid who is on a quest to find her biological father.
Here’s a bit of the blurb:
Don Tillman is getting married.
He just doesn’t know who to yet.
The Wife Project will solve that problem. He has designed a sixteen-page questionnaire to help him find the perfect partner. She will most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker,a drinker or a late-arriver.
Rosie Jarman is all of these things. She is also fiery and intelligent and beautiful.
All the characters in the story have their own funny mannerisms and I laughed the whole way through, especially at Don’s inappropriate comments and awkward moments.
I hope the movie goes ahead – would be great to watch.
I’m not sure what our next book will be – possibly “To Kill a Mockingbird”.
What’s everyone else reading at the moment?
