The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary
Reviewed by Alicia, Mary Jacobs Library
After a tough break-up, Tiffy finds herself needing an affordable apartment in London. She answers an ad to share a space with Leon who works nights as a hospice nurse. The two are never in the apartment at the same time due to their different schedules, but they forge a friendship, helping each other through their adversities. Their personalities couldn’t be more different, but we all know that opposites attract.
This story is told through both Tiffy and Leon’s point of view. Much of the information is shared through the notes they write to each other. The writing style is quick paced and humorous even though some heavy topics are presented. Flatshare is great when you are looking for a fun, light read. A top pick for fans of Jojo Moyes and Sophie Kinsella.
