Book Review: The Rosie Project

What says:

A first-date dud, socially awkward and overly fond of quick-dry clothes, genetics professor Don Tillman has given up on love, until a chance encounter gives him an idea.

He will design a questionnaire-a sixteen-page, scientifically researched questionnaire-to uncover the perfect partner. She will most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker or a late-arriver. Rosie is all these things. She is also fiery and intelligent, strangely beguiling, and looking for her biological father a search that a DNA expert might just be able to help her with.

The Rosie Project is a romantic comedy like no other. It is arrestingly endearing and entirely unconventional, and it will make you want to drink cocktails.

However, in the search for a life partner I seem to be enduring all the same problems. I swear I need to design a questionnaire and hand it out on dates. Think that will go over well? Just kidding. Kind of sort of. This book was heart warming, had me smiling and hopeful for my dating future!
