This was a FANTASTIC book!!! Light, fun, funny, heart warming, quirky, delightful and clever. What an amazing first book! Don Tillman is a Geneticist at Melbourne University. He is a good looking guy who can never get a second date – if he gets a date at all. He has never fit in, is socially awkward and possibly has Asperger Syndrome/Mild Autism. He begins a quest to find a wife. Thus begins the Wife Project. He seeks in a wife someone who does not smoke, arrives on time, does not drink to excess, can calculate her BMI accurately and is scientifically a “fit” for him. In enters Rosie, a smoking vegetarian who is a barmaid by night, Ph.D. student by day. She is on a quest to find her biological father – The Father Project. They begin a journey for the truth. This is where the fun really begins. This book reads like a romantic comedy. I loved how he guessed the BMI of almost everyone with whom he came into contact.I highly recommend this book.
