Book Club – The Rosie Project

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?

  1. Thanks for the recommendation. I’m planning on reading to Kill a Mockingbird. I read it in my teens but can barely remember it – so wanted to read it again before I move onto Go Set a Watchman.
