I totally agree with the person who said 'brilliantly written, funny' This is a great book to read when you have read one too many violent Swedish mysteries, yet still want a well written but lighter love story.

This story was great! Don reminds me of Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory.

A terrific vacation or weekend read. Very amusing. Nothing serious here, but not your typical romance either. Good fun.

I loved it! The main character was so anal-retentive but you couldn't help but adore him. He was so funny. Loved the story and characters. Hilarious!

This was a really funny and charming book. The character of Don Tillman was great. Can't wait to read the sequel.

I enjoyed learning and developing a greater understanding of Asperger's Syndrome. The book illustrates the importance of the connections our lives have with others.

Cute and quirky. Nothing meaty, but a good vacation read.

A "cute" romance story that is a pretty funny and fast read. Worth it due to the humour and characters even with the ending.

This is a great beach read - I finished it in a day and laughed the whole way though. Endearing characters, heart warming story.

This is a lovely feel-good story. Don Tillman is a socially ackward genetics professor who has decided that he needs a wife. Of course the only logical way to find one is to produce a questionnaire. This way he can exclude those candidates who don't meet all his requirements. Although we can easily see how it will end, the story keeps us interested because we are enjoying the ride. The writing has just the right tone and rhythm. A great little read with a bit of a message handled in a very lighthearted way.

Very enjoyable and hilarious reading!

Professor Don Tillman initiates the Wife Project to find himself a compatible partner, and he ends up with Rosie, who he had ruled out as patently unsuitable. Author Graeme Simsion, an Australian, teaches us many things: love can make you do irrational things, and you don't find love-it finds you. He also illustrated the Bible lesson, "let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Loved this quirky book.
