An Amazon Best Book of the Month, July 2014: In Landline, Rainbow Rowell once again shares her insightful, funny perspective on love and relationships, this time delving into a marriage floundering in the wake of kids, careers, and the daily grind. Georgie and Neal have been married for fifteen years and have two young girls who Neal cares for while Georgie works as a sitcom writer. When Georgie skips the family trip to her in-laws in Omaha for Christmas and the rest of her family goes without her, she realizes that maybe her marriage is going too. When a line to the past (literally) gives Georgie a chance to re-live an earlier pivotal moment in their relationship, she sees it as an opportunity to figure out if she and Neal should have been together in the first place. Landline is a deeply resonant story about being willing to go all in--at the start or after being together for many years--for the kind of love that makes “everything else just scenery.” --Seira Wilson
What I really want to make people understand is how this book makes you think.
Rowell has a good style, but the story seems repetitive, there isn't much character development, and at the end you feel like it lacks something else.
Rainbow Rowell has a great writing style and a skill for creating interesting characters and this book is no different.
This is the fourth book I've read by Rainbow Rowell and I really love the way she makes a reader fall in love with her flawed and realistic characters.Published 2 days ago by Katrina E Kniep
Fast fun read. Rowell's main characters are always so likeable but not very realistic. It's nice to visit 'Fairyland'!Published 3 days ago by SJD
Cute premise but really SLOW. Didn't connect with any of the characters. About halfway through thought I wouldn't be able to finish... Like watching paint dry. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Annie A
Over-the-top far fetched story with not so likeable characters. Would make a better sit-com episode than a book.Published 3 days ago by Chris Rue
I am such a huge Rainbow Rowell fan. I have loved all her stories and her perfectly imperfect characters. With that being said I must add I thought this book was just ok. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Coleen
