Charlotte Street | [Danny Wallace]

Charlotte Street

It all starts with a girl.... (Because yes, there's always a girl.) Jason Priestley (not that one) has just seen her. They shared an incredible, brief, fleeting moment of deep possibility, somewhere halfway down Charlotte Street. And then, just like that, she was gone - accidentally leaving him holding her old-fashioned, disposable camera, chock-full of undeveloped photos.... And now Jason - ex-teacher, ex-boyfriend, part-time writer and reluctant hero - faces a dilemma: Should he try and track The Girl down? What if she's The One?

Publisher's Summary

It all starts with a girl.... (Because yes, there's always a girl.) Jason Priestley (not that one) has just seen her. They shared an incredible, brief, fleeting moment of deep possibility, somewhere halfway down Charlotte Street. And then, just like that, she was gone - accidentally leaving him holding her old-fashioned, disposable camera, chock-full of undeveloped photos....

And now Jason - ex-teacher, ex-boyfriend, part-time writer and reluctant hero - faces a dilemma: Should he try and track The Girl down? What if she's The One? But that would mean using the only clues he has, which lie untouched in this tatty disposable...

It's funny how things can develop....

Mackenzie Crook is best known for playing Gareth on The Office, a role for which he earned two BAFTA nominations, and Ragetti in the Pirates of the Caribbean films. He also provided his voice and movements to a character in Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin.

    "Dull dull dull"

    Although the book is quite engaging the biggest drawback for me was the narration. It was read with such a monotonous tone that a child could have done better. Some narrators add some depth of feeling to their readings but this was utterly dreadful and in the end puts the listener off listening at all. Please, Mr Crook, don't undertake reading another book.

    "Trashy, amateurish fun"

    Danny Wallace's novel offers much to dislike. The protagonist, the lazy descriptions (everything seems to "suddenly" happen), some bits of the plot, key characters vanishing mysteriously. Although it does have some charm, some good original ideas, and a few nicked from other novels. I read it to the end, so it can't have been that bad. But it is pretty trashy.

    "VERY DISAPPOINTING"

    I had heard about this book and looked forward to listening to it. Unfortunately I found it dull and unexciting and the narrator sounded as if he was fairly fed up with it too. It was a struggle to keep on listening and i didn't bother to finish it.

    "Weak"

    Thought the characterisation was weak. All a bit predictable throughout. Not for me to be honest.

    "Just brilliant"

    I could imagine the film of the book being played with simon Pegg and his chubby sidekick. Similar humour to Simon Pegg movies.

    I have to say I am now struggling to find a read to compete with this

    Just Brilliant.

    "Charlotte Street"

    I am a massive fan of Danny Wallace's books, and had eagerly awaited the release of his next novel. This just didn't do it for me. It's billed as comedy romance. I didn't find it either, and struggled to get to the end.

    "Slowly pulls you in until you can't pull away..."

    At the start of this audiobook, I wasn't sure if the plot and characters were interesting enough to keep me listening. Thankfully, as Wallace fleshes out the protaganists a bit more and builds the slightly bonkers-yet plausible story I found myself warming immensely to the tale. Being of similar age and background to Jason Priestly (the book's hero, not the 90210 fellow) I could relate well to the plight of the 32 year old British male who still has a lot of growing up to do. Wallace evokes London with a refreshing fondness. My only niggle is that I found the interplay between Jason and Dev a little hackneyed and tiresome when I suppose it should have been more funny.

    Oh, and Mackenzie Crook made a brilliant narrator!
