I just wanted to start by saying this is my first book by Danny Wallace and won’t be my last!
I Received Charlotte Street as a First-read giveaway, and found the synopsis interesting; the plot refreshing. After reading uncountable Sci-fi and Fantasy books for the past couple of months, Charlotte Street was a good change.
To be honest I did not know what to expect of this novel; the story line of ‘boy stalk girl’ was quite new to me and it is probably also the reason why I was drawn to this novel. Usually when reading a book, there are many times when you are able to create your own version of what is going to happen further into the plot, however, that is not the case for this captivating and inspiring novel. It is also one if it’s charm.
A revitalizing plot was only one of the many reasons I wished I won this book when I first saw it listed on the giveaway section on Goodreads. The characters here are REAL! From their emotions, their feelings, thoughts, to the situations that they position themselves in, are all in which everyday people think about, witness, and go through …uh … minus the stalking part. 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). That was scary (in an intriguing way of course).
As it was my first Danny Wallace novel, it is amazing to see how he was able to use the words: humor, heartwarming, and stalking in the same sentence without the book coming out disarray. I could have finished the book a lot sooner, yet, I am glad that I did not rush my way into it.
I gave the ratings 4.5 out of 5 stars, only because in the beginning there were a few times where it seems as if the story was going nowhere, then again that too was in a way just a part of Jason Priestley’s life. At least, before his unexpected encounter. A wonderful read!
