The Rosie Project

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

This book made me laugh out loud several times.  I found it to be so much fun with such an insightful look into the neurodivergent character (autistic spectrum).

The Premise:  Don Tillman is a bit particular about things and self-identified as socially awkward.  He would like to get married, but realizes that finding a compatible partner is statistically unlikely.  So, he creates The Wife Project to speed things up and to avoid wasting time dating women who won’t meet his expectations. Don enlists a couple friends to help as he creates a long and detailed questionnaire to link to his online dating profiles.  

Don’s interpretation of interactions with people made me laugh.  He may be socially inept, but he is a sweet man with a good heart.

I find books like this are perfect for developing appreciation for the diversity within the human race.  I highly recommend this one!
