The Rosie Project - Graeme Simsion Full review at http://thebookshelfgargoyle.wordpress.com/2013/02/21/read-it-if-a-two-for-one-deal/

The plot of The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion, came as an utter surprise to me because I was mistakenly under the impression (after a clearly brief reading of the blurb and a filtered glimpse at the picture on the cover) that this was to be a story about World War II. Now although stories set in World War II are particular favourites of mine, The Rosie Project had plenty of charm to alleviate my ever-so-slight disappointment at my own mistaken conjecturing.

Despite not being a massive fan of romance novels in general, I found this book both humorous and believeable, even though some of the situations, particularly with regard to Don’s ability to learn new skills, are beyond the bounds of reasonable expectation. This is a good pick-up, put-down read for those days when you just want a brain break.
