Duration: 7 hours 32 minutes


The international bestselling romantic comedy “bursting with warmth, emotional depth, and…humor,” (Entertainment Weekly) featuring the oddly charming, socially challenged genetics professor, Don, as he seeks true love.

The art of love is never a science: Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially inept professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers.

Rosie Jarman possesses all these qualities. Don easily disqualifies her as a candidate for The Wife Project (even if she is “quite intelligent for a barmaid”). But Don is intrigued by Rosie’s own quest to identify her biological father. When an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on The Father Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie―and the realization that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love, it finds you.

Arrestingly endearing and entirely unconventional, Graeme Simsion’s distinctive debut “navigates the choppy waters of adult relationships, both romantic and platonic, with a fresh take” (USA TODAY). “Filled with humor and plenty of heart, The Rosie Project is a delightful reminder that all of us, no matter how we’re wired, just want to fit in” (Chicago Tribune).

    This book is immediately charming, with enough plot intrigue and great character development to make the listener care about the Project and it's players. The narrator gave a great performance.

    I wish I could remember who recommended this to me. I’d like to thank him/her. This is hilarious. Bust out funny at times. The most enjoyable book I’ve rea/listened to in a long time.

  • Georgia S.

    Wonderful, entertaining great story. Very easy listening, finished it in one day.

  • April B.

    I loved listening to this book...great narration. Story had some good twists and turns and kept me engaged and enjoying it all the way through.

  • Greg F.

    Central character takes some getting used to but becomes increasingly endearing as he faces challenges to his logical approach to all things. A well constructed plot that brings all threads together in a satisfying conclusion.

  • Susan M.

    Hilarious book

  • Nancy Krehlik

    This book was both heart wrenching and delightful. I enjoyed it very much!

  • Lisa Carroll

    My family, two teenagers included, listened to the Rosie Project on a long road trip. It was enjoyed immensely by all!

  • Jennifer Mahan

    It was charming and a fun easy read. I didn't realize it took place in Australia until I listened to the audiobook. It was fun to listen to it with the Aussie accent.

  • Kim Murphy

    It did not read as a chick lit novel and very witty. I was enthralled from the first chapter. I had audible moments of laughter and "awwed" more than once and I have never done that.

  • Catherine Lusk

    This was one of my favorite books ever! As other reviewers have stated, I found myself laughing out loud every time the main character opened his mouth. Despite his difficulty interacting with others he was very likable. This is a great feel-good book. I think a lot of people have some OCD characteristics so reading about someone who is majorly OCD should be eye-opening. The narrator was perfect!

  • Shannon Elder

    This book was absolutely delightful! My mom recommended it after I told her I needed a light, fun read and it was perfect!

  • Shannan Starling

    I laughed out loud multiple times! I even tried a recipe or two!! I enjoyed reading this one.

  • Kim Rutter

    Laugh out loud funny, with great characters. Australian reader is perfect for the Australian cast.

  • Shannon Street

    I thought the book was pretty good...predictable but good. Happy Hollywood ending...perfect for a movie. The narration could not have been better in my opinion.
