Weekly Staff Pick  Top

Charlotte Street by Danny Wallace

ĎJason Priestly isÖeating soup.í Jason Priestlyís latest Facebook update is about as boring as his current living situation. He quit his teaching job and now writes articles for a free commuter newspaper no one reads, his long-time ex girlfriend just got engaged, and heís living with his wildly unambitious friend Dev, above the shop Devís father gave him. Itís easy to say his life is going nowhere fast. That is until a chance encounter with a very attractive girl on Charlotte Street, in Londonís Soho. After helping her with her bags, heís accidentally left with her disposable camera, and like any well adjusted twenty-something he prints the photos to track down the girl, return them to her, and maybe grab a coffee, have a chat, and I donít know see where things go from thereÖ Judging on her whereabouts solely on whatís in the photos Jason, Dev and a former troublesome student of his travel far and wide to track down Jasonís seemingly perfect girl. All the while finding more about themselves and coming to the realization their lives wonít be completely sorted compared to everyone elseís, especially to otherís social media lives.
Iíll be honest, the first thing that grabbed me about this book was the little Union Flag on the spine, Iím a sucker for books set in the UK. After reading the first chapter I was hooked. Danny Wallaceís writing is so casual you feel as though youíre reading something a friend youíve known for years wrote specifically for you. His hilarious approach to the slightly neurotic, mostly endearing Jason grabs you from the very start. There were many times when I was reading this book that I had to stop and crack up on the wittiness and relatability of it. Itís a story of a person who seemingly has nothing going for him finding his way, and canít we all relate to that sometime, especially in our twenties?
