This book was a novel of a romantic comedy but
"One Of The Good British "of the good British a dry witted sheepish bumbling narrator and an awesome ensemble but one of the good British ones with a dry witted sheepish bumbling narrator and an awesome ensemble think Notting Hill Danny Wallace is a funny writer and though Jason the narrator makes oafish mistakes and can be a bit of a drunken lout he is never mean spirited and ultimately his desire to reinvent himself and do right is uite winning Think of him as a male version of Bridget Jones as layed by Mark Ruffalo with a British accent This book reaffirmed my desire to go to London and made me take a closer look at the Metro on my daily commute It s composed of relatively short sections and a lot of dialogue which makes for uick and easy reading I didn t love the blog The Transformation of Intergovernmental Satellite Organisations: Policy and Legal Perspectives posts from mysterious S which took away from Jason s story and uite frankly could be skipped and the book will still be logical Fans of Nick Hornby women looking on an insider serspective on the 30 something year old man s brain or readers who want something fun uplifting but not too saccharine will enjoy CHARLOTTE STREET I am an anglophile at heart so I jumped at the chance to read this book and I am so glad that I did Danny Wallace has written a book that is filled with British humor uirky characters and an interesting story that kept me reading There were so many things I loved about this book The idea of Jason helping this stranger being attracted to her and then finding he still has a connection to her through a disposable camera was brilliant It was a great fun to read about Jason and his best friend Dev as they try to solve the mystery of who this woman is through her The Marine's E-Mail Order Bride pictures The characters were great I loved how Wallace used little details about each character to make them uniue and at times really funny My favorite character was Dev He was such a good friend to Jason in his time of need and he added so much humor to the bookAlong with the story this book gives a great look into the city of London I have never been so I really appreciated all of the descriptions of London that were inculded in the book I felt like I was there right along with Jason and Dev making their way around the cityWhat impressed me the most was the fact that the story was about Jason and how he was really in a difficult time in his life but the story was never morose or angry There was always just enough hope added to Jason s story to keep it fun to read I really enjoyed watching Jason change from the depressed guy at the beginning of the book into the man who is willing to take charge of his life and make things happen at the endI would highly recommend this book to any reader it is a funny story with strong characters a nice setting and aerfect ending I am sure this one is going to make my top ten list for this year Jason Priestly not the one from that sitcom that I m too young to remember is in a rough spot He and his girlfriend have recently broken up for reasons unknown he s living with his socially challenged friend Dev in an apartment Dev s dad owns he has recently uit teaching to write mostly negative reviews for a free Dervishes and Islam in Bosnia: Sufi Dimensions to the Formation of Bosnian Muslim Society paper that no one reads and has generally lost his luster But when he sees this woman drop her bags on Charlotte Street he has an urge to help her As heicks up her bags she smiles at him A big bright life altering smile And then she s gone He s left with just her disposable camera which becomes a set of clues This is a story of boy stalks girl to find true loveTold in the first Sugar in the Social Life of Medieval Islam person Charlotte Street takes us on Jason s journey toick himself up after some serious mistakes and try to find some meaning in life This isn t exactly a love story but a uest for love story It s a bit depressing but in a funny English way Jason s blunderings and misfortunes are humorous and his conversations with Dev had me rolling Dev is this unintentionally funny video game store owner who is in love with this foreign waitress and wholly supportive of Jason stalking his mystery girlCharlotte Street has many A New Kind of Public: Community, Solidarity, and Political Economy in New Deal Cinema, 1935-1948 plot twists and turns that kept me turningages However I didn t love the blog Henri Matisse: Drawing with Scissors posts scattered throughout and I thought the ending was a little too Hollywood in the way it wrapped up everyone s lives But I did like that it was a happy ending after so much sadness and anxiety in Jason s life Danny Wallace s writing is clever and culturally informed He manages to craft many characters that I empathized with which I think can be difficult when using firsterson POV because you tend to empathize mostly with the character telling the storyI really enjoyed this book If you want a darkly funny British love uest this is for you Charlotte Street by Dann. Jason Priestley not that one has just seen her They shared an incredible brief fleeting moment of deep ossibility somewhere halfway down Charlotte StreetAnd then just like that she was gon. Y Wallace was the book in a couple of my ongoing literary themes For one it was the most recent of the books I The Battle of Borodino: Napoleon Against Kutuzov picked out randomly from a bookstore subset my most cherishedastime Second as it turns out this was but another in a long line of angsty twentysomething male charmingly tries to Religion in the Ancient Greek City put his life together novels which I hold so dear That series of course contains such gems as Twentysomething creatively titled Mammals A Novel The Beautiful and Damnedossibly the least flattering list in which Fitzgerald has ever been included and retty much everything Nick Hornby Has Ever Hornby has ever I have enjoyed them all to varying degrees and this was no exception Actually it was an exception The rotagonist in Charlotte Street was actually thirtysomething a fact that gave me great A Companion to Vittoria Colonna piece of mind Perhaps therotagonists in these novels will simply age with me How very comfortingyet also appalling Get it together fictional charactersThis book had a lot of attributes I really enjoyed Danny Wallace writes with tremendous voice and especially at the start of the book is uite literally laugh out loud funny There was one oint on a United Flight from St Louis where I had to ut the book down and compose myself for fear my laughter convulsions would wake my sleeping wildebeast of a seat neighbor Thankfully the crisis was averted and the beast slept on There were also many traits that kept Charlotte Street in the La Partera: Story of a Midwife pedestrian world of three stars After a very strong first half thelot failed to keep my attention for the home stretch and throughout the book I had trouble understanding why many characters behaved the way they did erhaps it s an English thing But my main complaint about Charlotte street was this I didn t like the main character Jason PriestlyApart from the shares a name with a celebrity gimmick something about this guy just rubbed me the wrong way Sure objectively he made a lot of mistakes and hurt eople along the way but I m someone who actively roots for the murderous Walter White in Breaking Bad Clearly moral transgressions are not a deal breaker for me in the rotagonist department I think my main irritation was that Jason Priestly is just such a whiny ansy of a man Now listen I am not claiming to be a shining example of modern masculinity I ask my landlord to change light bulbs I d call my abilities to drive a stick shift non existent and I have been told by than one female that I have really soft hands John Wayne I am not But come on Jason Priestly I can t respect a man in his 30s who constantly whines about how bad his luck is and what a depressing situation he s in Want to know a great way to have bad luck with women Complain about your life all the time AlrightI m not sure I m getting through to him I triedSince I did actually enjoy the book on the whole I d like to Reduced Laughter: Seriocomic Features and Their Functions in the Book of Kings point out one other aspect which I thought was a tremendousositive As the cover of the book says Charlotte Street is A heartwarming everyday tale of boy stalks girl Basically Jason has a chance encounter with this mystery woman and spends most of the book trying to track her down As a This Deleuzian Century: Art, Activism, Life plot device I loved it I thought the author did a fantastic job of showcasing how such a random crush on what s essentially a stranger can totally brighten your life We ve all been there The cute girl on the elevator the new co worker you haven t met yet a random McDonerr Starbucks barista for that brief window they canut a bounce in your step and make waking up in the morning the easiest thing in the world Even when you re Jason I m an annoying aging hipster PriestlyOverall I d call Charlotte Street an enjoyable if flawed example of easy to read fiction I think this is appropriate given my next book will likely be A Man Called Intrepid which Research in the Social Scientific Study of Religion, Volume 27 promises to be an enjoyable example of exhausting to read nonfiction Disclaimer I read this book when the Melbourne winter decided to grace us with two windless and sunshiney days all synched up with the weekend Meanwhile I was lying in bed with a head coldI discovered this book on the Highly Recommended shelf at my library and who doesn t like a heartwarming everyday tale of boy stalks girl A few chapters in I was reminded of Nick Horby s High Fidelity but with fewer insights I really couldn t get into this book Blame my grumpiness or the fact that Jason Priestley haha get it is a bit of an annoying character who bumbles his way about thelace doesn t know what he wants does a half baked job at work and gets the girl in the end all in the space of 100 ages too manyI m too old for this I must have turned into a grumpy old woman given the very glowing reviews he.

"Want To Read About Such "to read about such ll come back and reviewedit this once I m off the drugs and feeling better Danny Wallace is better known for his non fiction books In fact Danny Wallace wrote one of my favorite books of all time actually that s not uite right Danny Wallace wrote half of one of my favorite books of all time with his then flatmate Dave Gorman In case you re interested that book was called Are You Dave Gorman and it chronicled a drunken bet between Dave and Danny which stated that Dave Would Never Be Able To Find would never be able to find eople called Dave GORMAN POSSIBLY THE FUNNIEST BOOK I Possibly the funniest book I ever readSince the release of Are You Dave Gorman both he and co author Dave have become famous for their range of non fiction wacky adventure books and sporadic television appearances However it was Danny who really hit the big time when one of his later books Yes man was adapted into a film starring Jim Carrey which strangely had almost nothing to do with the book upon which it was based Regardless both are incredible writers and I d highly recommend any of their books to anyoneWhere was I going with thisOh right yeah So I am a fan of Danny Wallace but his last book Friends like these was slightly disappointing read not as good as his others and I was worried how he would turn his hand at fiction I saw the book on a shelf decided it was worth the risk and it Zheng Guogu paid off Easily the best book I ve read all year and certainly one of the funniest Charlotte Street tells the story of a man named Jason Priestley no not the star of Beverly hills 90210 who has reached a bit of a slump in his life One day he has a fleeting moment with aretty young woman whilst helping her with her bags and into a taxi By accident he ends up with her disposable camera and no way to contact her to give it back He becomes smitten erhaps borderline obsessed with The Girl and thanks to the actions of his flatmate and good friend Dev he embarks on a uest to return the ictures to their owner which lies somewhere between stalking and hopelessly romantic I don t want to reveal any than that so as not to spoil a fantastic read but I just could not Frںuhzeit Des Ostslaventums put this book down I think I managed a couple of short breaks while a made a cup of tea but aside from that I was addicted If you ve read any of hisrevious books you can really see their influence in this one and it makes it all the better Head out and buy it now you won t be disappointed A magical slice of book heaven Ryan Sweeney Just your average story of boy stalks girl Second time I have read this and I m sure I ll read it time and time again I just love this book it s laugh out loud funny there s moments when your heart breaks and the cracks get filled with hope Until the next time Charlotte Street Sometimes a book comes along where a reviewer has little else to say apart from those three magic wordsjust read itFor Charlotte Street Wallace s debut novel is one of those books which will hold universal appeal cause enough embarrassment laughing out loud on your Forbidden Knowledge public transport of choice and will ultimately tug at the heart stringsJason Priestley accidentally is left holding a disposable camera belonging to a girl he helps with bags as she clambers into a taxi on Charlotte Street With little other direction in his life and the idea that maybe this girl could be THE girl he is encouraged to find her with the help of his best friend Dev It is only when thehotos are developed that Jason notices he has been captured in one of them and so the mystery thickensAs Jason s life erupts into chaos from the ex girlfriend and a drunken evening spent on Facebook to the career writing dodgy reviews for a London Whose Life Is It Anyway?: Living through your 20s on your own terms paper the girl on Charlotte Street resembles one thing he can make happen All he needs is some detective work and only a bit of stalking well maybe stalking than detectingThis is just a celebration of life as it is of London so if you are a Londoner an ex Londoner or a wannabe Londoner you will love exploring the city with these charactersCharlotte Street iserfect for anyone who would like to invest a few hours into a good read with belly laughs and a great dollop of realism So what can I say other thanjust read it Disappointingly boring I think if I hadn t been reading this for a book club I may have struggled to finish Wallace took far to long to get things going things got going 250 or so The Rumsfeld Way: The Leadership Wisdom of a Battle-Hardened Maverick pages in by thisoint I worry the author may have lost uite a few readersThere were some amusing touches along the way and I uite liked the remise but I m not sure this is as top notch as the author would hope it to be. Mma 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 disposableIt's funny how things can develop.
