Publisher's Summary

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 he still loves her - but that almost seems besides the point now.
Two days before they're supposed to visit Neal's family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells him 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 - he is always a little upset with her - but she doesn't expect 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?

Better than everyone said it would be

Would you consider the audio edition of Landline to be better than the print version?

I disliked the American voice, just because I think the accent is whiny and irritating when telling a story (sorry!), so that's why I would say the print was better. But on the other hand, the audio gives you the emotions etc.

What other book might you compare Landline to, and why?

A Sophie Kinsella novel.

What about Rebecca Lowman’s performance did you like?

As I said, her ability to portray the emotions.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There's a line that Neal said when he was proposing that particularly moved me.

Any additional comments?

I didn't like the ending - it was all way too left open for my liking. Can we have a sequel please, perhaps focusing on Seth? But it was a really sweet story , not what I was expecting after reading other bad reviews.

Rainbow Rowell's imagery is just beautiful, her description of Georgie's struggles were so real while also a touch magical. I was gripped and charmed by this book

Love with capital L

I think I'm traumatise that this book ended. Why couldnt it go for eternity? Was a huge fan of Fangirl by the same author and narrator, but I think this is possibly BETTER! I love the narration. Extremely well written.
