ABOUT
THE BOOK

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is a story about love, life and lobster every Tuesday…

Meet Don Tillman.
Don 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…

With the charm of Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and the romance of David Nicholls’ One Day, The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is both funny and endearing. The Rosie Project was originally written as a screenplay, and won the Australian Writers Guild/Inception Award for Best Romantic Comedy Script in 2010.

NOMINATING LIBRARY COMMENTS

This is a feel-good novel. It’s both laugh out loud funny while also sad at times. Very entertaining, yet addresses important issues about how we see the world and others.
