The WG (Beth O’Leary’s novel): plot

The Flatshare is the story of Tiffy Moore and Leon Twomey, two people dealing with very different subjects.

In an effort to raise some extra money, Leon has decided to rent out his apartment at night, from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m., to address his brother’s unfair detention charge.

Since Leon works the night shift as a palliative care nurse, he hardly ever comes home at night. Tiffy needs to find a nice place to live immediately.

After throwing a fit about him ending their relationship in front of his new girlfriend, she is now trying to leave her ex house.

Boyfriend Leon’s apartment might not be exactly what she’s looking for, but it’s the only reasonable option she can find that fits her budget and is suitable for her 9am-5pm job. And so her story begins.

Although she doesn’t like Leon’s plan to raise money, Leon’s friend agrees to meet Tiffy, show her around the apartment, and do all her correspondence while she’s staying there.

It makes sense since she will be using her boyfriend’s bed to sleep. The first time Tiffy and Leon actually speak to each other occurs sometime midway through the novel.

So how do they interact? Post its. everything in the whole apartment. It starts with small letters inviting the other person to have some leftovers or baked goods, and it just evolves from there.

I won’t go into too much detail regarding the plot because I think you should read it yourself; Instead, I’m only going to talk about the things I liked most about this book.

My favorite part was when Leon decided to swap out his cartoon boxers for branded boxers after realizing they would be hanging around the apartment on laundry day.

There was something about it that was simultaneously hilarious and endearing.

The WG (Beth O’Leary’s novel): review

I also really liked the distinction between Leon’s chapters and Tiffy’s chapters. Leon’s sentences were concise, strict and direct.

His chapters didn’t contain any quotes related to the conversation at all, which keeps irritating me. Tiffy’s were incredibly well written and included her own righteous thoughts and dialogue quotes.

Although some people might find the difference irritating (and although I totally understand them because I’m usually one of them), it really helped me understand Leon’s perspective.

This book offers a lot of useful information about therapy. something I haven’t found in almost any of the works I’ve read recently. In fact, I can’t remember the last book I read where a character actively sought therapy.

But you noticed it here. Tiffy’s ex completely ruined her, and after some of her friends brought up some of his questionable actions over the years, Tiffy made the decision to start looking for someone herself. You see too little of that.

I’m a HUGE supporter of therapy, but I think a lot of people shy away from it because it seems to have unfavorable connotations.

Many people also believe that they may not have a mental illness, so how could therapy benefit someone like you who is just struggling with everyday life? But this book was a fantastic illustration of how therapy can benefit these common people, and I wholeheartedly support it.

The fact that there was a distinct disconnect between Tiffy’s longtime best friends (Gerty and Mo) and Rachel, her work friend, is another thing I appreciate that I don’t see in many of my contemporary characters.

Actually, they had different personalities. Gerty and Rachel are practically diametrically opposed. While Rachel advises Tiffy to keep sleeping with Justin and that they should get back together, Gerty advises her to break up with her nasty ex-boyfriend Justin.

This depiction of real life friendships was excellent. Rachel didn’t observe Tiffy and Justin’s interactions in the same way that Mo and Gerty did, so apart from the few occasions the two meet outside of work, she doesn’t realize just how much of a prick Justin was.

She just overheard Tiffy talking about positive things because that’s often what employees hear from you. In most contemporary novels I’ve read, the protagonist’s co-workers act just like regular buddies, and everyone just goes along with it.

The WG (Beth O’Leary’s novel): Spoilers

I know I’m a little late for the party. But to be honest, I often feel disappointed when I read any book with positive PR. However, O’Leary’s best-selling romantic comedy debut of 2019 delivers on its promises.

The WG is an interesting and entertaining romantic read. It’s like combining all of my favorite ingredients in just the right amount in one bowl to make the perfect rainbow cake that rises and is light and fluffy in the middle with those delicious crunchy crumbs on the outside.

First of all, what a wonderful setting for a romantic comedy. The more comprehensive the context is provided, the more credible this “new” assumption becomes.

O’Leary skillfully conveys the intimacy of leaving notes (and the joy of finding them) through alternate first-person narratives and the drastically different personalities of her main characters. Leon’s inside story and notes are clipped and factual.

I often imagine that being Tiffy must be quite exhausting. It seems to exert so much energy even in note form.

Tiffys are outgoing and talkative.

Life is, as my father often says, “never easy”. One of his favorite sayings is this.

In fact, I think it’s inaccurate. Life is often simple, but you don’t realize how easy it was until things get terribly complicated, e.g. B. Never being thankful for being well until you’re sick, or shredding a pair of tights and running out of spares.

However, both share a deep sense of genuine concern and kindness. Although it took me some time to get used to reading Leon’s somewhat terse, note-like thoughts.

The WG (Beth O’Leary’s novel): Characters

Though Tiffy and Leon make unusually likeable leads (almost equally), The Flatshare’s supporting cast is also exceptional.

It is difficult to pick a favorite as they are all skillfully but effectively characterized. Holly, Leon’s bright young hospice patient, stands out among them, and it’s difficult not to be moved by children’s advice.

Being friendly is a positive trait. You can be beautiful and strong. You don’t have to choose between the two.

The way this book treats genuinely serious issues, much like one of my all-time favorite comedy romances, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, puts it in the touching and memorable category.

In The Flatshare, O’Leary deftly mixes humor, tact and solemnity while showing how fear and worry can affect even the best of us.

It recognizes that terrible things can happen to good people, and serves as a reminder of the importance and poignancy of the little things, such as: B. Silent companionship.

The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary is an endearing tribute to goodness and uniqueness. I strongly encourage you to let this book cast a warm glow over your life for a few days.

Tiffany Rose Moore

Jess from New Girl meets Eleanor from Elenor & Park.

Tiffy is a tall girl with red hair and blue eyes, and she’s absolutely gorgeous! There are sites where she is always praised for being so attractive.

Everyone in the infirmary, from harried nurses to young children struggling with life-threatening illnesses, can’t stop gushing about how beautiful she is in any given scenario.

She has an editing job, possibly on crochet books.

Ever since her ex-boyfriend of two years left her for another woman, she’s now forced to live in a seedy situation where she shares a bed with a total stranger.

Tiffy’s character was obnoxious and overused. She constantly oozed venomous positivism and tried to force it down her throat with her frilly blouses and outrageous headgear. It was like having a narcissistic friend listening to Tiffy.

what more do you want You have a job you love, friends who adore you, parents who love you, you model, you drink, you travel on cruise ships and you go on beach vacations where you meet nice girls who offer you a free stay at their inn to offer. Why do you complain so often?

Leon Twomey, -Lee

An expert in palliative care. You will never stop hearing compliments on his muscular build, dark eyes and curly hair.

Leon had a weak personality.

However, he was the only character with a fictional past. The current state of his siblings, his mother’s past relationships, his friend who served in the military, his favorite patient on the ward, his girlfriend Kate, his odd neighbor and the Jhonny White(s) he’s looking for are all revealed.

Additionally, unlike Tiffy’s past, which did little to advance the plot, his story has a deeper meaning and contains a hidden human illness.

The WG (Beth O’Leary’s novel): More details

I felt that this book should never have been published. Why, why, why would a publishing company want to publish a well-known story? Like Beth O’Leary was high after she saw You’ve Got Mail and wrote The Flatshare.

She attempted to add an element of mystery to her work by pulling a John Green: Let’s hunt down men named Johnny White and reunite him with someone they had a fleeting relationship with during the war.

No one; I could never ask you to immediately throw away 10 hours and 8 minutes of your life. However, if I had to choose, I would pick the typical YA reader who is undeterred by reading the same story repeatedly.

The author’s ignorance was the biggest flaw of this book. Let me explain: there was no representation in the text. The characters were all typical white, straight, upper-middle-class Londoners.

However, Dr. Mentioned Patel in passing, who I think was included in the book for “representational” reasons only.

I’m surprised O’Leary didn’t tell Dr. Koothrappali because a) it wasn’t necessary to mention the name of the doctor Tiffy walks past in the corridor and b) he used the clichéd Indian surname “Patel”.

A brief, hushed reference to a same-sex relationship is also made without ever going into specifics.
