Lodge s Changing Places is the first novel in his Campus Trilogy It follows a very simple story or perhaps formula or script are appropriate terms two professors one from the United States and the other from England exchange positions and fill their counterpart s teaching position for six months They also end up sleeping with each other s wivesContrary to expectations the story was not particularly funny or revealing It felt rather uneven undeveloped in some places and overdeveloped in others Nor was the style successful to go from relatively straightforward storytelling to epistles to news bulletins and finally to film script might work theoretically in some cases not in this one I think that the news bulletins especially killed what little interest I had in the flow of events I could see what Lodge was doing at times it is almost painfully clear but what he was doing simply failed to arouse serious response or passion I will read the subseuent two novels of the Campus Trilogy but with dampened expectations and enthusiasm I m afraid
