The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Absolutely loved this unique, delightfully sweet, face-paced novel! The author does an exceptional job of capturing the mind of a quirky, analytical, brilliant man with Asperger's Syndrome. He totally lacks insight to sarcasm, is literal, guileless, and honest to a fault. There are several screwball laugh-out-loud moments, as well as some touching, thought-provoking scenes. The book makes you feel like there is somebody out there for everybody, no matter how weird or different you are. This is a book about choosing to look at our blind spots and address them. It is also about how love and commitment are a choice. The author originally wrote this wonderfully clever novel as a screenplay and has sold the screen rights, so hopefully it will soon be made into a movie.
