Graeme Simsion: The Rosie Project

Love isn't an exact science - but no one told Don Tillman. A thirty-nine-year-old geneticist, Don's never had a second date. So he devises the Wife Project, a scientific test to find the perfect partner. Enter Rosie - 'the world's most incompatible woman' - throwing Don's safe, ordered life into chaos. But what is this unsettling, alien emotion he's feeling?

This is really funny. The story is written from the point of view of a university professor who is trying to settle down and find a suitable woman to marry and start a family with. But he's got some issues with being socially inept and has Asperger's, but he doesn't seem to know. He knows he can't read social cues and doesn't understand feelings much, but he thinks that he's just being rational. Really hilarious read!
