The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
'I am a thirty-nine year old, tall, fit and intelligent, with a relatively high status and above-average income as an associate professor. Logically, I should be attractive to a wide range of women. In the animal kingdom, I would succeed in reproducing... However...'
Oh, boy! That 'however' is pivotal here. There was just something in the dry and 'this is how I see it, so why don't the rest of you do so, too?' he was prone to that made most every single he'd encounter hilarious.
Three things I enjoyed: emotion need not be spelled; despite his being different, they are there and evident in his interaction with Gene and Claudia then later Rosie. 'An inability to empathise is not the same as an inability to love.' The mention of Gregory Peck! And finally, this book making me want to watch some Sheldon.
