The Rosie Project

Don Tillman 1

(7)

Don Tillman is getting married. He just doesn't know who to yet. But he has designed a very detailed questionnaire to help him find the perfect woman. One thing he already knows, though, is that it's not Rosie. Absolutely, completely, definitely not. Sometimes, though, you don't find love: love finds you...

„A lovely, light, relaxing read“

Marion Raab, Thalia-Buchhandlung Nürnberg

Don Tillmann is looking for a wife. Simply because it is really useful to have somebody clean your bathroom while you are giving a lecture on Asperger's - a proposition that is far from romantic. The questionnaire he develops to find hir perfect partner is equally unsentimental. Luckily for him, a friend manages to attach him to the perfect most imperfect woman and Don the pedant discovers what it is like to have butterflies in his stomach.

„Ein lebensfremder Akademiker auf Brautschau – kann das gutgehen?“

M. Dupré, Thalia-Buchhandlung Limburg

Don Tillman, Genetiker, ist ein Mann der Naturwissenschaften. Mit Menschen hat er es nicht so. Er ist sich allerdings bewusst, dass von einem Mann seines Alters erwartet wird, irgendwann eine Partnerin zu finden und eine Beziehung mit ihr einzugehen. Unter Zuhilfenahme eines ziemlich umfangreichen Fragebogens, mit dem Don über nichtsahnende potentielle Kandidatinnen herfällt, versucht er mittels umfangreicher statistischer Auswertungen die perfekte Frau zu finden. Es versteht sich von selbst, dass dieses Unternehmen von vorneherein zum Scheitern verurteilt ist. Doch dann platzt Rosie in Dons Leben, die gerade gar keinen Nerv für Amouröses hat, sondern die Hilfe eines Genetikers braucht, um ihren leiblichen Vater ausfindig zu machen.
„Das Rosie-Projekt“ ist zugegebenermaßen kein sonderlich origineller Roman; viel mehr sind seine Ideen von vielen Quellen zusammengeklaut, aber zumindest ist er gut zusammengeklaut. Die Figur des Don Tillman ist z. B. eine 1:1-Kopie von Sheldon Cooper aus „Big Bang Theory“, inklusive Sprache und Habitus. Dennoch konnte „Das Rosie-Projekt“ mich prima unterhalten. Ich vergebe gutgemeinte 4 Sterne.

not bad

Great Idea!, and the characters are very well described, good word plays and well written, but as the story goes on it becomes a bit too long and streched, so that it became a bit boring

Quirky nerdy love

Meet Don Tillman, an Australian genetics professor who doesn't seem to notice that he is an autistic, which makes the book especially funny to read. The first thing he does in the book, is giving a lecture about autism to some students. As he keeps on teaching them the symptoms of an autistic person, his students keep on laughing all the time, because the person he is describing is equal to his own person, and he doesn't seem to notice. You soon find out that Don doesn't fit in well with others, that is why wants to find the perfect girlfriend for him with an unconventional method: he draws up a questionnaire that would help him find the perfect mate. This turns out to be something more easily done on theory, as noone seems to fit 100% into the conception of his perfect partner. When he meets Rosie, who is just the opposite of what he had dreamed of, he finds out that love isn't just about matching each other. Funny, quirky and heartwarming story with likable characters and just the right amout of romance!

What an absolutely fantastic read!

The story of Don Tillman, socially challenged academic who's looking for the perfect match to function as his life partner, meets chaos and challenge in Rosie, who doesn't qualify for the Wife Project, but turns out to be the biggest project he has yet had to face in his life: The Don Project. Hilariously refreshing! What a great read. Graeme Simsion is mastering the art of entrancing the reader in a dry and humorous way. 5/5 would recommend (and will read again!) - also made me buy its sequel "The Rosie Effect" immediately after finishing - can't wait to be this entertained and moved again!
