Join Me: The True Story of a Man Who Started a Cult by Accident - Danny Wallace ... could you refuse the polite invitation of begoggled Danny Wallace in Join Me? You don't know what you could be missing out on. It's all about living for the moment in this quirky, seemingly pointless yet addictive narrative. Finding himself with too much time on his hands after quitting his BBC job, Danny revels in sitting around in his pants and generally taking a break from the responsibilities of working life. Danny attends the funeral of his great uncle Gallus and finds out that he had set up a commune of like-minded people to escape Swiss small town small-mindedness in the 1940s. Intrigued by this idea, on his return to London Danny places a cryptic advert in the classified ads paper Loot and gets some surprising results.

When most of us are bored, we do mundane little things. We might re-arrange our books or aimlessly surf the Internet. But not Danny Wallace. When he gets bored, he enters into what his girlfriend refers to as 'boy-projects' and he rarely knows where they will end. Join Me is a first person account of what happened when Danny Wallace got bored one day and set about his new 'boy-project'. The premise was simple. Wanting to meet other people who shared the same frustrations with the pointlessness of life, Wallace placed an advert in his local Loot newspaper with the words Join Me. Those who are interested are requested simply to send a passport-sized photo to ... Read the complete review

Danny Wallace is now known more for his tv presenting rather than his writing but writing is where his true talent is. His writing style is hysterical, uplifting and inspiring. He is a true genius. This is Danny Wallace second book. (Lots of people forget the first which was 'Are You Dave Gorman?' which he co-wrote with Dave Gorman.) It is a truly inspirational true story about Danny who is bored and feeling sorry for his deceased uncle who had had the dream of starting a commune but had been unable to get people to join him. Danny decides to try and get people to join him as a sort of dedication to his uncle and what follows is a strange story of him trying ... Read the complete review

It is not often you get the opportunity to join a cult that does not require you to had over all of your money but that is what Danny Wallace is offering people and in fact all you actually have to do is agree to do a good deed for someone every Friday, once a member, Friday becomes Good Friday as it is the day that you will carry out your deed. There is no great long initiation process and no need to learn countless mantras or religious dogma, all you need to join is send Danny a passport photo of yourself, you may even include a small item like the menu for your favourite Indian restaurant like Joinne Jonesy the first one to join the cult did but this is purely ...

Danny Wallace is a legend. His writing style and use of the English language has my sides splitting on a regular basis. A friend bought me the book "join me" after I'd told him I'd seen the film "yes man" (another Danny Wallace special) and read the book on which it was based. I think he was trying to make a point that the book is better than the film. His point was made very well. "Join Me" is the story of what Danny's girlfriend Hanne would call a "stupid-boy project". Basically it's a very daft and amusing tale of one man's quest to get lots of people to join him for no apparent reason. At least no reason that he ... Read the complete review
