Publisher's Summary

It all starts with a girl.... (Because yes, there's always a girl.) Jason Priestley (not that one) has just seen her. They shared an incredible, brief, fleeting moment of deep possibility, somewhere halfway down Charlotte Street. And then, just like that, she was gone - accidentally leaving him holding her old-fashioned, disposable camera, chock-full of undeveloped photos....

And now Jason - ex-teacher, ex-boyfriend, part-time writer and reluctant hero - faces a dilemma: Should he try and track The Girl down? What if she's The One? But that would mean using the only clues he has, which lie untouched in this tatty disposable...

It's funny how things can develop....

Mackenzie Crook is best known for playing Gareth on The Office, a role for which he earned two BAFTA nominations, and Ragetti in the Pirates of the Caribbean films. He also provided his voice and movements to a character in Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin.

Wendy Wason was a regular in several comedy series such as Tittybangbang and The IT Crowd, and she has also appeared in Midsomer Murders. As a comedian, she has also had three successful Edinburgh Festival shows.

Dull dull dull

Although the book is quite engaging the biggest drawback for me was the narration. It was read with such a monotonous tone that a child could have done better. Some narrators add some depth of feeling to their readings but this was utterly dreadful and in the end puts the listener off listening at all. Please, Mr Crook, don't undertake reading another book.

VERY DISAPPOINTING

I had heard about this book and looked forward to listening to it. Unfortunately I found it dull and unexciting and the narrator sounded as if he was fairly fed up with it too. It was a struggle to keep on listening and i didn't bother to finish it.

So boring

This is the first book I have taken the trouble to review only because I want to save other people from the tedium.

A change from the norm.

Not what I was expecting from Danny Wallace when compared to his earlier books. I enjoyed the characters and the story line. I enjoyed the will they/won't they aspect and the various other story lines weaved through the main story. The characters were endearing. I enjoyed Mackenzie Crook's performance throughout.

My least favourite Danny Wallace book

I've read all of Danny Wallace's book and I've enjoyed them all except this book which felt like the odd one out. I never really felt invested in any of the characters and nothing particularly fun happens in it either. Luckily it's only a shortish audiobook but I definitely wouldn't have finished it if I wasn't on a long journey. Danny's witty humour although to a lesser degree than his other books is a bonus too.
