Book Talk: The Rosie Project
Hey guys! I'm back with another book talk! So I normally read a lot of "self-help" and psychology books, it's just my interest, but every now in then I'll go for romantic or mystery fiction novel. In this case this book is a romantic comedy fiction.
My husband picked this out for me in Barnes & Noble and said I would love it.
I absolutely adore this book. It's so good. And the main male character reminds me so much of my husband, which just tickles me pink.
So here's my summary:
This book is about Don, a genetics professor who is very stuck in his ways. He eats the same thing. He does the same thing, and sticks to a very strict schedule. Don goes so much as far as starting the Wife Project to find his perfect match. This wife project is pretty outrageous if you ask me. But it gets good. His best friend, Gene, married, and much more spontaneous, throws a curve ball into his structure. This curve ball is Rosie. Rosie without a doubt fails the wife criteria for Don, but some how gets Don to open up in ways he never knew. They actually become really good friends, then not friends, then more throughout the book. And the way they bond is over the Father Project, another outrageous thing, and yeah, there are a lot of projects in this book. This book will have you laughing out loud. You'll even grow an emotional attachment to the characters.
I highly recommend this as a good read. I read through it fairly quickly because I just couldn't put it down. I saw there was a sequel to the book called the Rosie Effect and I can't wait to get my hands on them.
