Charlotte Street by Danny Wallace was the next book in a couple of my ongoing literary themes For one it was the most recent of the books I picked out randomly from a bookstore subset my most cherished pastime Second as it turns out this was but another in a long line of angsty twentysomething male charmingly tries to 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 Damned possibly the least flattering list in which Fitzgerald has ever been included and pretty much everything Nick Hornby has ever written I have enjoyed them all to varying degrees and this was no exception Actually it was an exception The protagonist in Charlotte Street was actually thirtysomething a fact that gave me great piece of mind Perhaps the protagonists 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 point on a United Flight from St Louis where I had to put 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 pedestrian world of three stars After a very strong first half the plot 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 perhaps 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 people 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 protagonist department I think my main irritation was that Jason Priestly is just such a whiny pansy 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 point out one other aspect which I thought was a tremendous positive 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 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 can put 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 promises to be an enjoyable example of exhausting to read nonfiction

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 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 the photos 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 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 is perfect 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
