The Flatshare By Beth O’Leary Review

So it has been a while since I last read a contemporary but after heating so many people rave about how good this book is I had to give it a go.

Tiffy and Leon share a flat

Tiffy and Leon share a bed

Tiffy and Leon have never met…

Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Their friends think they’re crazy, but it’s the perfect solution: Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy’s at work in the day, and she has the run of the place the rest of the time.

But with obsessive ex-boyfriends, demanding clients at work, wrongly imprisoned brothers and, of course, the fact that they still haven’t met yet, they’re about to discover that if you want the perfect home you need to throw the rulebook out the window… 

Taken from goodreads

So from the very beginning I was in love with both of the main characters, they are both not the type of characters who I would normally consider to class as main characters but the story somehow makes them great to read about.

The story itself is quite weird at the beginning with two people sharing a bed and a flat but never meeting, and to be perfectly honest if it wasn’t for the hype around the book the summary of the story would not have made me want to read but boy am I glad I did.

Parts of the story have got a few new writing styles that I instantly loved and do want to see some more off in future books.

You get two different P.O.V.s in this book (from each of the main characters) and each one is written in a different style to represent the different personality the characters have with Leons being very straight forward and having who is saying what is the beginning of the speech. While Tiffy’s is all over the place to represent her extrovertness 

This book will take you on an emotional rollercoaster, in the space of a few pages I was smiling then crying and then laughing and it is because of this I think that I will always remember everything in this book.

This book I personally think so many people would love, it has so much to offer and with all the messages that it has to give  the reader to take away and can see it becoming a personal favourite for all to love.

  1. I’ve heard a lot of rave reviews about this one as well. I don’t read a lot of this type of book but I added it to my list after seeing nothing but good things and hoping to step out of my comfort zone a bit. I’m glad you liked it! 🙂


    1. I’m the same to be honest, I never read contemporary at all, just never interests me. But after seeing numerous people saying I have to read it I though I might as well give it a try and I ended up loving it. Hope you like it too 🙂
