The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

About the book:

Tiffy and Leon share an apartment. 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 rule book out the window.

My thoughts:

I loved this book – I thought it was so funny and very well written, but also with a layer of depth to it that I wasn’t at first expecting. Tiffy and Leon were both brilliant characters, I loved the form of communication they developed and thought it was unique and fresh – something I had not seen in a book before. Unusually for me, I liked both characters equally the same……however I developed an impassioned hatred for the character of Justin – I think I shouted at my kindle at one point as he was annoying me SO much. Testament however to the brilliant way that he had obviously been written.

I would highly recommend this book as one that does keep you on your toes – every time I thought there would be a happy ever after there was another twist or something/one else (Justin) came along and spoilt it. I have immediately bought Beth O’Leary’s next book as a result of reading this one.

Definitely 5 stars from me.
