Review: Landline

Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems besides the point now.

Maybe that was always besides the point.

Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go home without her.

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .

Is that what she’s supposed to do?

Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

OMG. This book. I just can't even with it.

I loved the storyline and plot of this novel. It was so very intriguing with the whole idea of being able to talk to someone in the past from a phone. The thing is is that it seemed normal too. I loved Georgie's character and I believe she really developed well throughout the novel. I loved how she didn't just think about herself but thought about her kids and husband too, especially towards the end of the novel.

Rainbow Rowell's writing is phenomenal and I love reading her books. I own every single one except Attachments (which I am so excited to dive into). Honestly if you've never read a Rainbow Rowell book before, you have not lived life. This review is mostly raving because it was THAT GOOD. Definitely my favorite book of 2014 and one of my favorites of all time. I believe that anyone could enjoy this book from ages 16 to 80. It is an adult book that does have references to sexual stuffs and vulgar language (like the work fuck), but other than that I think it's a book even older young adults can read.   

Received for honest review from St. Martins Press
