For 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 strings. Jason 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.
There’s nothin’ like the humdrum. I’d been standing on the corner of Charlotte Street when it happened. It was maybe six o’clock, and a girl – because yeah, you and I both knew there was going to be a girl; there had to be a girl; there’s always a girl – was struggling with the door of the black cab and the packages in her hands. She had a blue coat and nice shoes, and white bags with names I’d never seen before on them, and boxes, and even, I think, a cactus poking out the top of a Heal’s bag.
Charlotte Street is a British romantic comedy along the same lines as a Nick Hornby novel. Jason Priestly (not that Jason Priestly) has recently quit his job as a school teacher to become a journalist. Not happening only once, but many times throughout this novel, it was as if Danny Wallace created a mind reading machine that is capable of invading my most inner thought and memories, and used the information sought to make up his characters. There was just so much that Jase and I had in common, that during the moments I was reading Charlotte Street, I became Jase. I was Jase (gender wise not included but personality, thought, and action wise).

Method: The courts might say stalking. Result: That’d be nice. Conclusion: One step at a time. But the list’s a nice move. See, I knew all about lists like Damien’s ere a Chosen One. Someone regard. Someone regarded as valuable. Someone the PRs would call a ‘journalist friend’, not just a ‘journalist’. You were in the inner circle, invited to lavish events, days out, plied with food and drink, privy to the slaggings-off of other, lesser journalists, who are ‘not like you’. It’s a great place to be. You can network. And I could use this.
Danny Wallace's books have never failed to amuse me and make me laugh out loud while reading them.

This book is not an exception, although I wouldn't put in quite as on par as some of his previous.
“Unmissable...will have you laughing out loud and melt your heart, all at once.”—Cosmopolitan (UK)
Danny Wallace is a British writer, producer, and award-winning journalist whom GQ (UK) calls, “One of Britain’s great writing talents.” The man who gave us Yes Man (basis for the Hollywood motion picture starring Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel) makes a grand foray into fiction with Charlotte Street, a sweet and sharp romantic comedy about finding love, growing up, and making your own fate that fans of the novels of Nick Hornby and David Nicholls are going to adore. With this charming, slightly twisted comic novel about an endearing loser’s convoluted plot to turn a brief chance meeting into a once-in-a-lifetime love affair, Wallace proves he has ample heart to go along with the humor.
