The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is a story about love, life and lobster every Tuesday...
Don Tillman has got his love life planned out. He knows exactly who he wants, but is it who he needs?
Love isn't an exact science - but no one told Don Tillman. A thirty-nine-year-old geneticist, Don's never had a second date. So he devises the Wife Project, a scientific test to find the perfect partner. Enter Rosie - 'the world's most incompatible woman' - throwing Don's safe, ordered life into chaos.
But what is this unsettling, alien emotion he's feeling?
