    Fun Piece on dramatized academia

    Lodge's Changing Places is a fun story about two professors who switch positions at universities in America and the UK, and the striking similarities and inter-twining of life stories that emerges between two people who have never even met. Definitely offers a small world feel with subtle insights and stimulating prose that makes one wonder how they would act if they were placed in a similar situation. Younger readers will find the depiction of adult love life alien or foreign to young love, for it portrays romance "over the hump" of the wonder years. I enjoyed the link between relationships and vocation.
