あらすじ・解説

Eileen is sick of being 79. 

Leena's tired of life in her 20s. 

Maybe it's time they swapped places.... 

When overachiever Leena Cotton is ordered to take a two-month sabbatical after blowing a big presentation at work, she escapes to her grandmother Eileen's house for some overdue rest. Eileen is newly single and about to turn 80. She'd like a second chance at love, but her tiny Yorkshire village doesn't offer many eligible gentlemen. 

Once Leena learns of Eileen's romantic predicament, she proposes a solution: a two-month swap. Eileen can live in London and look for love. Meanwhile Leena will look after everything in rural Yorkshire. But with gossiping neighbours and difficult family dynamics to navigate up north, and trendy London flatmates and online dating to contend with in the city, stepping into one another's shoes proves more difficult than either of them expected. 

Leena learns that a long-distance relationship isn't as romantic as she hoped it would be and then there is the annoyingly perfect - and distractingly handsome - school teacher, who keeps showing up to outdo her efforts to impress the local villagers. Back in London, Eileen is a huge hit with her new neighbours, but is her perfect match nearer home than she first thought?

Narrator

Book was fun to hear but I was hearing the narrator’s mouth clicks all through! I had to stop listening several times so I cohld focus on something else.
The books itself is really nice and fun to hear. Light, yet has a message behind it.

Brilliant!

Narrators were perfect. Story was so well written. Characters were believable and relatable. I had genuine moments of joy and fun, with a few laugh out loud moments too. I thoroughly recommend this story. It’s an A+!
(And if you haven’t heard The Flatshare by the same author, download it now!

easy and funny love story

Really nice book, sometimes funny, I love how it shows the world from young end old perspective, the love story in the book is expected from the beginning so there is not much anticipation, but still a great listen :)

Feel good- but not quite believable

I downloaded this book because I had enjoyed’The Flat Share’. However, This book wasn’t quite as well put together. Felt that the older characters were too old to be doing the things described, and I can’t see a reason for them having to be so old. Had they been 10 years younger, it would have been much more believable. It was a warm-hearted tale but perhaps a little trite and stretched the limits of reality a little too much.

Defo get!!!

Such an amazing book I haven’t stopped listening all day, I haven’t laughed at a book like this in a long time, so funny. Love the characters. Beth O’Leary is amazing I loved this one as much as the flat share and can’t wait for her to bring out another. I will 100% be listening to this book again and again.

Excellent book!

i bought this immediately after finishing Flatshare in hope it could be nearly half as good. I gave Flatshare 5* and this is even better! its a roller-coaster of emotions, often funny, sometimes gloriously sad, always brilliant! If Beth O'Leary isn't the successor to JK Rowling as a world
class writing sensation there's no justice in the world!

Hard to listen to the Audio

One of the voices is really difficult to listen to if you have misophonia :-( I’m struggling to get to the end of chapter 2.

As close to perfect as you can get!!

Anyone who has read The Flatshare will have been waiting with bated breath for the new book by Beth O'Leary. And believe me, this does not disappoint! I'll be honest this would not normally be the type of book I would listen to but after reading the reviews for The Flatshare and loving it, I had pre-ordered The Switch and waited patiently. It was worth the wait and more, a book filled with fun, emotion and above all heart. Rarely have I laughed out loud so much. Special mention to Alison Steadman and Daisy Edgar-Jones, who both give a masterclass on how to perfectly capture the characters and lift them from the page, outstanding. I cannot recommend both books by Beth O'Leary highly enough.

Brilliant narration of a fab book!

I loved Beth O’Leary’s debut novel, The Flatshare and was hoping her second book, The Switch, would live up to her earlier work. I’m pleased to say it absolutely did! The Switch was a fun, heartwarming story that I enjoyed immensely. The narrators, Alison Steadman and Daisy Edgar-Jones were perfect choices for Eileen and Leena. 5 star performances all round!

Boring and predictable

Boring and predictable. Would not recommend. I found the interfering particularly annoying. Lena gives up a career cos she finds a man etc.. Didnt enjoy it.

Pitch perfect

This book was exactly what the doctor ordered. Pithy and clever writing. Great characters. Some of the best narration I’ve heard in ages. Hooked me in all the way and left me with a lovely warm feeling when it was done.

Truely Moving

This story really gave me a new perspective. While it did take me a few chapters to get invested, I ended up crying happy tears as a listened to the ending, in bed, in the middle of the night.

Adventure & reality

The 2 main characters Eileen and Leena have very relatable emotions and back stories. it's a book of true to life events with a nice dash of adventure to inspire people out of the daily grind and into trying something new.

Brilliant

Eileen Cotton OMG what an amazing woman, I need someone like her in my life, we all do!

When Leena is asked (told)to take a couple of months leave from her corporate job in London. After a chat with her grandmother Eileen she decides to head home to the Yorkshire Dales and swap lives with her. Eileen moves to London for two months and this is where all the fun begins as both fit into the others space.

Its written as a dual narrative alternating between the two, the conversations and banter between all the characters is fabulously written and narrated.

If you are a fan of Beth O’Leary’s debut novel The Flatshare you are going to love this one. Without a doubt it’s a five star read! I am very much looking forward to her future novels!!

One of my favourite books of all time

Such a beautiful story! I was invested in each of the characters from the start and loved following along with their development.

Enjoyable character journeys

I’m glad I persisted with this book. It took a few chapters for me to get into it. Perhaps the quite different narrators and their speed of speech was a little mismatched. However this then became a strength as the many characters in the book had distinguishable voices.

I enjoyed the reflections and perspectives of the main characters and the sense of optimism amidst grief that underpinned the story.

A little bit of predictability however not in a terrible way… sometimes the simplest obvious outcomes are just how life works!

Overall I recommend this audiobook and encourage giving a little time to get to know the characters. The story is quite memorable and took my mind away from the stresses of lockdown.

Wonderful story

Fantastic characters and such a fun concept. I would laugh aloud and sob with tears. It would make a fantastic movie I reckon.
