“He’s a socially inept scientist who’s tone deaf to irony. She’s an edgy young woman whose fallback mode is sarcasm. Put them together, and hilarity ensues in Australian IT consultant Graeme Simsion’s first novel, The Rosie Project.”
The New York Times also has a few thoughts about the book saying, “It’s cheering to read about, and root for, a romantic hero with a developmental disorder.”
The book could easily be made into a movie and in fact the rights were purchased even before the book debuted in the US (it is an Australian born novel). Adding to the fun is a recent sequel, The Rosie Effect.
