I finished reading The Flatshare yesterday. It took me nearly 10 days to complete this book and it was totally worth the time.
The story is about Tiffy and Leon who decide to do a flat share in a single bedroom apartment. Tiffy works as an editor of DIY genre books and Leon is a nurse. The story starts off with Tiffy moving in to Leon's flat as a tenant after having dealt with a messy breakup. And as a part of the contract, they are not supposed to see each other in person. So, they interact via Post It notes. This aspect adds so much warmth to the story and finally in the middle of the book the protagonists end up meeting as the circumstance demands for it. Both Tiffy and Leon are warm and huggable characters filled with kindness and love. The story does have a predictable ending and the supporting characters, Tiffy's friend and Leon's patients and brother add all the more warmth and fun to the story.
The language was simple and eloquent and I liked the flow of the story. It was precise and unique because of the first part of the story. The descriptions of the scenes and people were rich with imagery. I am going to give this book a 4/5.
