What’s it about?
The Rosie Project is a cute little beach read about a professor with Aspberger’s syndrome and his hunt for a mate. It’s told from his point of view; Rosie is a PhD student he crosses paths with. He starts to help with her project, and ends up having fun.
Why should you read it?
You should read The Rosie Project on vacation somewhere, as a further distraction from the real world. It’s not going to change your life, but it will entertain you for a few hours. Sometimes, that’s exactly what you need. You can also admire the fact that it’s written with an autistic person as the main character – something you don’t find every day. (Diversity in fiction is important!)
