What if your roommate is your soul mate? A joyful, quirky romantic comedy, Beth O'Leary's The Flatshare is a feel-good audiobook about finding love in the most unexpected of ways.
Tiffy and Leon share an apartment. Tiffy and Leon have never met.
After a bad breakup, Tiffy Moore needs a place to live. Fast. And cheap. But the apartments in her budget have her wondering if astonishingly colored mold on the walls counts as art.
Desperation makes her open minded, so she answers an ad for a flatshare. Leon, a night shift worker, will take the apartment during the day, and Tiffy can have it nights and weekends. He’ll only ever be there when she’s at the office. In fact, they’ll never even have to meet.
Tiffy and Leon start writing each other notes – first about what day is garbage day, and politely establishing what leftovers are up for grabs, and the evergreen question of whether the toilet seat should stay up or down. Even though they are opposites, they soon become friends. And then maybe more.
But falling in love with your roommate is probably a terrible idea…especially if you've never met.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Falling for your roommate can be very awkward, especially when you’ve never met. After a bad breakup, Tiffy needs a cheap place to live ASAP, so she begins sharing a one-bedroom London apartment with a guy named Leon. It seems like the perfect arrangement: She works days, and he works nights and spends weekends with his girlfriend, which means that they each get an affordable place to stay with a roommate they never see. But the longer the two strangers exchange notes and emails, the more connected they become to the person who sleeps in their bed when they’re not around. We were completely taken with the two charming characters at the heart of this unconventional romance—and narrators Carrie Hope Fletcher and Kwaku Fortune portray them beautifully. The Flatshare is a wonderfully quirky romantic comedy, but it also surfaces real and relatable emotions, especially around Tiffy’s toxic past relationship. It strikes the perfect balance of fantasy and reality.
Nice casual read along - audio issues
I’m really enjoying this story, the way the book is read by different voices from the two perspectives adds a great dynamic style. Around chapter 18 the audio begins to have a strange echo to it. My phone is brand new and I restarted and all, but the echo still exists.
Really happy listening along to this story overall though!
One of my New Favorites!
Listened to it in one day! Absolutely loved it! Never wanted it to end!
Cute story, but the way the male speaks in fragmented sentences makes my skin crawl. Is he a robot or something? I don’t get it. But a good story over all!
