Charlotte Street by Danny Wallace has been in my TBR stack for a very long time. It’s a very long book. This is a very short review.
The story can be summed up with this*:
Except the main character is not a music teacher but an ex-teacher/would-be journalist named Jason Priestley (not that Jason Priestley) and the girl is some random chick he bumped into on Charlotte Street. She’s not blind.
There’s a disposable camera involved, a cast of excellent support characters, pizza-personality-analysis, video games, a brilliant engagement party scene and some bits that made me laugh out loud. But did I mention long (416 pages)? A one-hundred page chop would have made this book a whole lot snappier.
3/5 Is it going to be a film? I don’t know… I guess I could google it…. Anyway, it will be/would be an excellent rom-com.
*Let’s not ever forget how INSANE that film clip is.
