The Rosie Project

The Rosie Project by Graeme C Simsion

Don Tillman is a brilliant and attractive genetics professor who has never been on a second date. We learn why early on as Don is not too keen on the social norms and has a particular woman he is looking for.  Not just particular, PARTICULAR.  In fact he creates an application to help him find a wife and dubs it The Wife Project:

WIFE WANTED.
MUST BE PUNCTUAL, LOGICAL, AND ENJOY TRAVELING BY BICYCLE.
NO SMOKERS, DRINKERS, OR HOROSCOPE READERS NEED APPLY.

Enter Rosie, with red, spiky hair and thick-soled boots–a smoking, vegetarian with a knack for being late.  Thinking she was sent to see him by his friend Gene for the Wife Project, he gets to know her and instantly decides she is not wife material.
Instead, Don helps Rosie find her father through DNA testing, and thus begins The Father Project.  Of course being in such close proximity to someone so NOT likely to be the one, brings about greater opportunities to get to know someone. This makes for a fun, engaging, romantic comedy.

I really liked this book.  I love Don and his schedules for everything from when and what he eats, to the way he notes the Body Mass Index about everyone he meets.  Australian writer Graeme Simsion lets you view the world from the window of someone on the Autism Spectrum with humor and respect.  There are so many quirky moments between Don and Rosie, one dance scene in particular, that keep the story fun and make you cheer for them as a couple.
