Review

The Rosie Project is one of the most talked about books of the year, and for good reason! Laugh-out-loud funny in many places, this uplifting romantic comedy is a novel that will not soon be forgotten. Even I, I must admit, ended up with a literary crush on Don Tillman--a professor with Asperger's Syndrome who sets out to find a wife in a formulaic and rigid manner, and instead finds Rosie, who meets few if any of the requirements on Don's Wife Project Questionnaire.

One quick word to the wise, though: The Rosie Project makes Asperger's Syndrome cutesy, and as someone with a relative who has Asperger's Syndrome, I'm not quite sure how I feel about that. I still found the book perfectly enjoyable, but only after I decided not to be judgmental about this component--which, admittedly, is the primary plot driver.
