She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now. Maybe that was always beside the point. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn't expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her. That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

I've loved all Rainbow Rowell's other books, but this one just didn't do it for me.
The premise was ridiculous and I hated pretty much every character except Heather.

I'm really confused as to how he's supposed to be an appealing character since he's not even described with any redeeming qualities really - a short, fat guy who never laughs, smiles or expresses his feelings in any way, apart from just silently projecting misery and resentment at his wife without ever actually bringing up the fact that anything is wrong. Every woman's dream! I couldn't understand why Georgie would have even wanted to marry him in the first place, let alone save their marriage which sounds horrible and depressing.

This is definitely the most adult of her books, not a true romance, but a story of marriage and the hard work and heartb Re-Read Review March 16, This is definitely the most adult of her books, not a true romance, but a story of marriage and the hard work and heartbreak that goes into it.
Not being married, I can't relate specifically, but this book feels personal in that "I opened up a vein to write this" sort of way, and that gets to you as a reader. I still love the main conceit of this book, that inexplicable magical telephone that's never explained, but just descends into Georgie's life like judgment from on high: Talk to your husband. They stopped really talking to each long before we enter their lives, and it seems very fitting and circular story-wise that the main thrust of this book is Georgie talking herself back into her relationship by talking to Neil from the past, simultaneously convincing him in the past to do something she never knew she'd convinced him to do in the first place.
Seth is gross and I don't like him. I bet she would be great at it. This concludes my review that I should have written a month and a half ago. View all 32 comments. Dec 16, Wendy Darling rated it it was ok Shelves: DNF about halfway through. As always, I like the author's narrative voice, but as a character sketch of a marriage, this wasn't quite sharp enough or funny enough or emotional enough for my taste.
I also find Georgie's profession rather jarring, in that it was rather unrealistically portrayed in both the details and in Georgie's character. Had I never read Liane Moriarty , who writes excellent books that humorously dissect marriages and relationships, and had I never worked in entertainment, I mi DNF about halfway through. Had I never read Liane Moriarty , who writes excellent books that humorously dissect marriages and relationships, and had I never worked in entertainment, I might've liked this one better.
And the only thing more tedious than being forced into phone conversations with young kids you don't have a relationship with is having to read about them. View all 34 comments. I just read this book for the first time while in a serious relationship and I have to say: I love it more than ever before. Still loved this so, so much. I want a Neal of my own. Loved this so much. So so so much.
Soooo much. Neal gave my darling Lincoln a run for his money. I love all of Rainbow's characters to death. This book is going to stick with me for a LONG time. View all 8 comments.
I'm not going to say too much here, but I will be mentioning it on my channel closer to the release date. For now, here is a little blurb of my thoughts: This was a really different read, and I realized when finishing it that a big part of that is because it is NOT Young Adult.
The cover looks it, Rainbow Rowell writes young adult, but this is adult and it shows. It's darker, it's more realistic, and it's less idealistic. And that's not bad at all, but it's sadder. The book started off harsher and the pay off wasn't as extravagant. All of that in mind, this book was wonderful. The characters were complex and unique and real, and their relationships where layered and difficult and full of history. The magical element in this book was a mixture of stressful and crazy exciting.
And the main characters struggle was beautiful. View all 18 comments. You don't know what it really means to crawl into someone else's life and stay there. You can't see all the ways you're going to get tangled, how you're going to bond skin to skin. How the idea of separating will feel in five years, in ten -- in fifteen She didn't know it at twenty-three. I finished this book in a handful amount of hours in one sitting. Now I know why everybody seems to praise Rainbow Rowell so much.
She "You don't know when you're twenty-three. She's absolutely amazing. Her writing is just so simple and easy to read. The story was fast-paced, cute, and bittersweet. I loved everything about it. I was already hooked after the first page. I honestly wonder how in the world the ratings for Landline aren't much higher! I always wondered what I would do when put in a similar situation as Georgie where I had to choose between my career or my family.
Each time my answer is always the same: Why can't I have both? Every book, every movie, or every show that models the same predicament debating which is of more importance career or family , always seems to propose an either-or solution.
Where's the compromise? There has to be a solution in which both sides can win. But then again, if Georgie and Neal thought of a compromising solution at that time, this book wouldn't have came into existence so I won't complain much further. D This book made me cry. It was just so darn cute and adorable and sad and just ugh.
I was crying because I seriously couldn't handle all the feels that Landline gave me. How in the world does that even happen?
Guys, seriously though. I was bawling. And depressed. Because it was so bittersweet and cute. I didn't even expect this to be a Christmas-y type of story but I'm so glad I just spontaneously decided to read it because it brought so much holiday cheer and tears to my heart. Landline is the cutest thing I've ever read and if you didn't think so, then we can't be friends. That is all. Now I'm going back to crying away my swooning heart. View all 7 comments.
Mar 06, Elyse Walters rated it liked it. I saw a friend reading this book just now - and remembered I read it early last year. It was sooooo 'fair' that when I saw that my overdrive library had it available, too, - I thought it might be better as an audio -- afterall - the name of the book is called "Landline". Well- reading it - or listening to it - I enjoyed this conversation the story , for about as long a I saw a friend reading this book just now - and remembered I read it early last year.
Well- reading it - or listening to it - I enjoyed this conversation the story , for about as long as I do many phone conversations: Enjoyable for awhile - nice connecting with my friends - even up to two hours is 'great' Can anyone tell me WHY It's a mystery to me! Even if It's almost as shocking as this years Presidential election. One thing I 'did' enjoy about this story - right off the bat I liked the pure symbolism of what the landline phone with the twirly cord represents to me.
I liked enjoying my own memories. I use to speak on my princess landline phone for hours a night during 8th grade. Ron and I talked on the phone. We did our homework over the landline - ate our snacks - talked about music -school gossip - our families - and strengthen our relationship. I wore his ring around my neck all year long. We're still friends today. When I would see Ron at school during the day back in 8th grade- we barely talked to one another.
He sat with the 'boys'. Me with the 'girls'. One day I got tired of the segregation He was the greatest on the telephone each night -- but stepping over the line to the boys side during lunch was off limits to girls. Enough was enough. I said I was sorry - but he said he deserved it] The only problem was BACK in 8th grade - I lost too, by getting mad -- I lost my wonderful evening landline phone chats But now with texting, email, and Facebook - most of us don't even own a landline anymore.
Different memories! Her overall message was sincere and valuable. Take time to really connect with the person we love most - The Landline was a magical tool in supporting a married couple find their hearts back to each other.
Resentments were stacking up Georgie begins to connect - by landline- when Neal is away on business - not just with her old raga muffin husband, instead she gets the 'younger' Neal It's a cute idea Now that's funny! A few great ideas that went flat.

Maybe she can fix the things in their past that seem unfixable in the present. Maybe this stupid phone is giving her a chance to start over.
But with this reread now, coming after three years, I can't get enough of family-based stories. It's so hard to capture all that I loved because there's so many specifics but I tried my best by including it all below: Georgie used to tease him about being a waste of dimples. Henry story. This is exactly it.
As well as this quote from the book on savoring what we hold precious: I, uh. They weren't my favorite scenes since no one was shining or bringing anything new to the table. I'm not a fan.
He can't write anything decent down without Georgie around, which makes him a true Nick. Well, technically, they had ended up together. But they were supposed to end up together-together. Everyone thought it would happen—Georgie had thought it would happen. Just as soon as Seth exhausted his other possibilities, as soon as he worked through his queue of admirers.
See a Problem?
She was waiting patiently. Georgie is the one initiating all contact with Neal, making sure she can get a laugh out him at least one , whereas "solid, stolid" Neal is a tough nut to crack, similar to Cath with their difficulty establishing eye contact and needing a barrier between them, such as drawing cartoons in Cath's case, reading fanfiction out loud to distract.
If Mikey likes you, it means something. Georgie must have seen him, without really seeing him, dozens of times.
Was she that sucked in by Seth? But once Georgie noticed Neal, she saw him around the office constantly. Just go ahead, say it again now. He lifted his chin and looked directly in her eyes. For the second time in five minutes.

Now, the fantasy element of the story appears: Georgie, the protagonist, visits her childhood home, and in a wallowing moment of nostalgia, she picks up her old landline phone. How is this happening, and why?
And as the phone calls continue, will she be able to change her present through the past? Then Noomi wanted HER boots. Noomi started crying because her sock was turned the wrong way around her toes. She was still tearful from the sock problem. The true meaning of Christmas for us is just family. I love you. I love you both so much. I love you so much, it hurts. site Edition Verified download. I've been wanting to read a Rainbow Rowell book for quite some time and when I made my list for the TBR challenge, I knew that I had to include one.
So I chose Landline. I honestly don't think I'd even read the synopsis for this book prior to putting in on my list. I just knew that Rainbow Rowell had a good following and that I was okay with going into this book blind. To be perfectly honest, this book started off extremely slow for me. I started reading it like three times and never made it past the first chapter.

To be perfectly honest, this book started off extremely slow for me. I started reading it like three times and never made it past the first chapter. Then I finally decided to give the audiobook a try. I'm glad that I did. I still thought it started off slow but once the story started picking up, I had to know what was going to happen. I still think it was pretty slow in some parts. The book didn't move very quickly and, other than emotional turmoil, not a lot happened.
All that aside, this book was great. Georgie trying to decipher the meaning of everything that was happening to her made me think about my past with my husband and certain events that maybe I would have done differently. This was definitely a good story that makes you feel and it was very interesting to see what Georgie did with the strange gift that was handed to her.
You would think as much as I liked to read I would be better at putting my thoughts into words However, as inept as I am in writing reviews, I feel the need to try to express how much this book really touched me.
I really think I was meant to read this book. I know that sounds funny, but I honestly do. Georgie and Neal have been married 14 years. Just so happens my husband and I just celebrated our 14 year anniversary on July I think not!
I could go on about how great the characters were in this story, and believe me, they were. I loved every single person in this book, from Georgie's sister Heather to Noomi meow , even Seth I loved the witty banter between Georgie, Seth and Scotty when they were working.
It reminded me of an episode of Seinfeld many times, and I laughed out loud more than once.
These people were around my age, so I identified with so many references in this book. I even loved Georgie's mom, even if her love of pugs and all things related was just a tad odd What I really want to make people understand is how this book makes you think.
We have all wondered, and even prayed a time or two, to have a chance to go back and undo a mistake that was made. Would you? You bet I would. Hindsight and all that, but anyway.. It's so easy to take your partner for granted, believe me I know.
When you are married 14 years, parents of 3 kids, work full time, go to school part time, yada yada yada.. What I am trying to say that it's just so easy to get soft.
Everything either gets in a routine, or just gets comfortable, and you forget to try. You forget the little things that made you fall in love in the first place. You just take for granted that your partner knows how you feel.
Why shouldn't they? But you also forget how nice it feels to actually know that they know how you feel. Does that make sense? When is the last time you thanked your husband for dinner he made instead of getting mad about the mess he also made in making said dinner? How about how he took care of the kids duties that night because you had a paper due in your online class that you just had to finish?
Also guilty! Do you see my point? I think what this book made me realize is that although you have been together for such and such years, never quit trying.
Never stop appreciating the little things. Never just assume they know how you feel. I know when I read this over the weekend, my husband was actually working. I don't know how many times during the day I sent him a text just to tell him I loved him, and that I appreciated all of his contributions to our family.
There's times I could strangle him with the socks he never picks up grrrr but the love for him outweighs that by a ton. I have to also admit I texted him so many times just to tell him these things that he considered leaving work early because he thoughts I was losing it, but I digress.You get some ideas of how a married life looks like.
I can't wait to own a copy. Yes Please. An Isolated Incident. You would think as much as I liked to read I would be better at putting my thoughts into words Macmillan Language: You can remove the unavailable item s now or we'll automatically remove it at Checkout.
