Review : Landline by Rainbow Rowell

“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 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 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?” (Goodreads)

We all love Rainbow Rowell. Her writing style is wonderful. This one is no exception. She has a way of creating story that are so close to reality.
Landline was good. It was not as amazing as i thought it would be. The story was okay. The phone thing was pretty cool.
My biggest problem with this book, i think, is that i didn’t had a conection with any of the characters. In Rainbow Rowell’s other books, i always could relate to one of the characters. Cath, Park and Lincoln, they all have this little something that talks to me.
But not in Landline.
Plus, i didn’t really care about those characters.
So, Landline is a good book. I just don’t think it would be my first recomendation to someone who never read a Rainbow Rowell’s book.

Landline : 3.5/5
