5.0 out of 5 stars It could be you. I loved it., 9 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Charlotte Street (Paperback)
After reading Charlotte Street I feel like I should be writing a clever humorous, witty, review. Or doing my best to sum up the plot without giving too much away. That's what reviewer's do, right? But that's not me and others have already written much better plot summaries than I could. So here's my shot at reviewing Charlotte Street.

It's totally brilliant and will be massive this summer with men and women, old and young and here's why. Danny Wallace has managed to take a brilliant basic plot and add more twists and turns than a twitsy turney thing. I almost had a little cry a few times and laughed out loud a several times, so much so at the `engagement party' bit that my wife came to find me to see if I was ok.

Danny Wallace it a great writer but what he does best is to make you identify with every character (especially the leads) because there's a bit of you in there that you wouldn't want to shout about, but need to talk about. Even when you read the most cringe worthy bits you know that you are just one drink too many or one dose of pride away from doing exactly the same thing. There but for the grace of God he isn't writing about you.

I read Charlotte Street in two days during the chilly May Bank Holiday weekend. It's made me smile and I would heartily recommend you read it.

PS Here's a worm to hold in your mind. This will be a movie and it will be huge. So when you visualise your characters try not to think of Martin Freeman as Jason Priestley or an Asian Blake Harrison as Dev - it's impossible.
