Adult Fiction Book Review: Landline By Rainbow Rowell

About the book: (Goodreads)

Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble; it has been in trouble for a long time. 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.

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 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…



My thoughts:


I enjoyed the story but disliked the characters. The idea of the phone that called in the past was fantastic. 

I still don’t understand how this book won the 2014 goodreads choice award.  Also this was the first Rainbow Rowell book I have read. I just I thought I would throw that out there.


I gave this book 2 stars out of 5 stars.
