The Rosie Project is a delightful novel about a man named Don who thinks differently than everyone else. Don is a lot like Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory - obsessively organized, keeps to a very specific schedule, has highly rationalized thought processes and cannot be emotionally attached to anyone... Or so he thought. One day he decides he needs a mate, so he starts his quest with a questionnaire for the "Wife Project". But once a girl, Rosie walks into his office and fails the questionnaire, his life is forever changed.
A socially awkward genetics professor who has never been on a second date sets out to find the perfect wife, but instead finds Rosie Jarman, a fiercely independent barmaid who is on a quest to find her biological father.
