The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially inept professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers. Rosie Jarman possesses all these qualities and Don easily disqualifies her as a candidate. When an unlikely relationship develops Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie¯and the realization that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love, it finds you.
