"Graeme Simsion has created an unforgettable and charming character
unique in fiction. Don Tillman is on a quirky, often hilarious,
always sincere quest to logically discover what is ultimately
illogical--love. Written in a superbly pitch-perfect voice, "The
Rosie Project" had me cheering for Don on every page. I'm madly in
love with this book! Trust me, you will be, too."--Lisa Genova,
bestselling author of Still Alice and Left Neglected
"A world so original, in a story so compelling, I defy you not to read through the night. Read this glorious novel now, in the moment, where it lives."--Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of "The Shoemaker's Wife"
""The Rosie Project" is the best, most honestly told love story I've read in a long time."--Kristin Hannah, bestselling author of "Fly Away" and "Home Front"
""The Rosie Project" is an upbeat, quirky, impertinent gem of a read. As the novel makes its logically irrefutable progression, readers will become enchanted by what may well be the world's first rigorously evidence-based romantic comedy."--Chris Cleave, bestselling author of "Little Bee" and "Gold"
"This clever and joyful book charmed me from the first. Professor Tillman is an unlikely romantic hero but a brave, winning soul, and his quest to find a wife goes to show that rationality is no match for love."--Maggie Shipstead, bestselling author of "Seating Arrangements"
"With the demands of children and work, it's rare that I find myself so caught up in a novel that I literally cannot put it down -- not for food, nor for conversation, nor even for sleep. Charming and delightful, I was so enamored of "The Rosie Project "that I read it in a single, marathon sitting."--Ayelet Waldman, bestselling author of "Red Hook Road, Bad Mother" and "Love and Other Impossible Pursuits"
"Although there are many laughs to be found in this marvelous novel, "The Rosie Project "is a serious reflection on our need for companionship and identity. Don Tillman is as awkward and confusing a narrator as he is lovable and charming."--John Boyne, bestselling author of "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas"
"Charming, funny and heartwarming, a gem of a book."--Marian Keyes, bestselling author of "The Brightest Star in the Sky" and" This Charming Man"
"Don Tillman helps us believe in possibility, makes us proud to be human beings, and the bonus is this: he keeps us laughing like hell."--Matthew Quick, bestselling author of "The Silver Linings Playbook"
