Today I finally finished The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.....
I'm a little ashamed to admit that I allowed myself to get distracted from this book. I got three quarters of the way through, it ended up in a different location to me and I started another book whilst I awaited its return. Since that moment, I've read more books than I count on one hand.....! Now, that isn't at all like me. I usually get into a book, and I struggle to put it down until I have absorbed every last word. I mistook my casual attitude to returning to it as disinterest, but having returned to it today, I was wrong.
The main character is lovable, in an extraordinarily different way. With undiagnosed asperger's syndrome, Don is a very special man!
In this book, you'll experience a number of projects....the Wife Project, the Father Project and as the name suggests, the Rosie Project. I found myself wondering when the Rosie Project would begin and I had to wait until the end of the fourth paragraph on page 256 to see those three little words 'the Rosie Project'
Funny, perfectly pitched, not your typical rom-com but packed full of real life.
