Descrições do Produto

Descrição do produto

What advice would you give the younger you...and would you listen?

As far as time machines go, a magic telephone is pretty useless. TV writer Georgie McCool can't actually visit the past; all she can do is call it, and hope it picks up. Is she going crazy or is this a chance to make things right with her husband, Neal?

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...if that's what she wants...

A heart-wrenching - and hilarious - take on fate, time, television and true love, Landline asks if two people are ever really on the same path, or whether love just means finding someone who will keep meeting you halfway.

Sobre o Autor

RAINBOW ROWELL lives in Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband and two sons. She's also the author of "Fangirl," "Eleanor & Park," and "Attachments."

Antes de falar o que eu achei desse livro, quero deixar BEM CLARO que ele é um livro adulto. Se você ainda não teve um relacionamento sério com alguém, talvez essa não seja uma estória que irá apreciar. Vai depender mesmo de quais são as suas expectativas em relação a um relacionamento sério, na verdade. Eu tinha uma ideia completamente enganada do que era antes de iniciar um com o meu marido e agora sei que é um esforço diário para mantê-lo. Que não é só amar alguém como mágica.
Esse livro me inspirou em ser ser melhor no meu próprio casamento e apreciar 100x mais o meu marido. Ele foi uma ótima análise sobre quanto nos dedicamos de verdade para os nossos relacionamentos. Por isso amei tanto esse livro. Por causa de seu realismo.
Na real, a Rainbow Rowell é especialista em retratar a realidade de relacionamentos em seus livros. Landline é um livro dedicado exclusivamente a isso e foi perfeito na sua missão. Eu senti o amor que a Georgie e o Neal tinham um pelo outro desde a primeira cena em que estão juntos, por mais tensa que fosse. Senti também as dificuldades de manter um casamento durante anos, quando já caímos na complacência e comodidade.
Eu amei que o livro é contado dentro do presente e passado, à medida que a Georgie ia se tocando de suas falhas no seu casamento. Dessa forma eu fui me identificando com todos os momentos de seu relacionamento. Desde que se conheceram até o presente estado.

Review of Landline
Hot Toasty Rag, May 25, 2017

I loved this book, even though on the surface, it seemed like I wouldn’t. In general, I don’t tend to enjoy fantasy/science fiction, and in general, because of where I am in my life, I find it difficult to identify or root for middle-aged women with children. However, this time-traveling fantasy was entertaining, hilarious, and highly recommended by yours truly.

A woman with a challenging job, two typically needy children, and a marriage that’s lost its luster, reaches an impasse. The ageless question of “What if?” enters her mind as she starts to doubt her life choices, and in particular, her decision to marry her college sweetheart. 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. All of a sudden, she’s entered a portal fifteen years in the past, to the time right before she became engaged back in college. How is this happening, and why? And as the phone calls continue, will she be able to change her present through the past?
This book is so funny, and the details from Georgie’s job are so spot-on, I’d be surprised if Rainbow Rowell hadn’t used some of her own experiences. Check out this passage below for Rowell’s description of Georgie’s children; rarely have I read such an accurate description of motherhood. If you like the humor and realism, you’ll like the novel. I didn’t happen to like the ending, but you can’t have everything.

“Daddy said I could wear my boots,” Alice croaked.
“Where are they?” Georgie whispered.
“Daddy knows.”
They woke Noomi up, looking for them.
Then Noomi wanted HER boots.
Then Georgie offered to get them yogurt, but Neal said they’d eat at the airport; he’d packed snacks.
He let Georgie explain why she wasn’t getting on the plane with them—“Are you driving instead?” Alice asked—while he ran up and down the stairs, and in and out the front door, double-checking things and rounding up bags.
Georgie tried to tell the girls that they’d be having such a good time, they’d hardly miss her—and that they’d all celebrate together next week. “We’ll have two Christmases,” Georgie said.
“I don’t think that’s actually possible,” Alice argued.
Noomi started crying because her sock was turned the wrong way around her toes. Georgie couldn’t tell if she wanted it seam-on-the-bottom or seam-on-top. Neal came in from the garage and whipped off Noomi’s boot to fix it. “Car’s here,” he said.
[…]
“You’re the best mommy in the world,” Noomi said. Everything was always “the best” and “the worst” with Noomi. Everything was “never” and “always.”
“And you are the best four-year-old girl in the world,” Georgie said, smashing her nose with a kiss.
“KITTY,” Noomi said. She was still tearful from the sock problem.
“You are the best kitty in the world.” Georgie tucked Noomi’s wispy yellow-brown hair behind her ear and pulled her T-shirt smooth over her belly.
“Green kitty.”
“The best green kitty.”
“Meow,” Noomi said.
“Meow,” Georgie answered.
“Mom?” Alice asked.
“Yeah?” Georgie pulled the seven-year-old closer—“Here, give me all your hugs”—but Alice was too busy thinking to hug back.
“If Santa brings your presents to Grandma’s house, I’ll save them for you. I’ll put them in my suitcase.”
“Santa doesn’t usually bring Mommy presents.”
“Well, but IF he does…”
“Meow,” Noomi said.
“Okay,” Georgie agreed, holding Alice in her left arm and scooping Noomi close with her right, “if he brings me presents, you can take care of them for me.”
“Mommy, meow!”
“Meow,” Georgie said, squeezing them both.
“Mom?”
“Yes, Alice.”
“The true meaning of Christmas isn’t presents anyway, it’s Jesus. But not for us, because we’re not religious. The true meaning of Christmas for us is just family.”
Georgie kissed her cheek. “That’s true.”
“I know.”
“Okay. I love you. I love you both so much.”
“To the moon and back?” Alice asked.
“Oh my God,” Georgie said, “so much farther.”
“To the moon and back infinity?”
“Meow!”
“Meow,” Georgie said. “Infinity times infinity. I love you so much, it hurts.”
Noomi’s face fell. “It hurts?”
“She doesn’t mean it LITERALLY,” Alice said. “Right, Mom? Not LITERALLY?”
“No. Well. Sometimes.”

5.0 de 5 estrelas Rainbow Rowell's Best Book Yet! 14 de julho de 2014
Por Brandie - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
I have loved every book I've read by Rainbow Rowell. But all in very different ways, because of how unique all of her books are. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading Landline - all I knew was that it was a book about a couple who's marriage was in trouble. After finishing the book, I'm not sure I can put into words how moved I was by it, and how absolutely fantastic it was.

We all have to work at our relationships, but there's no denying it is hard not to get into a rut. You get comfortable, you're in your normal routines, and you start to take each other for granted. This was the case for Georgie and Neal. They are supposed to go to Omaha for Christmas and stay with Neal's mom. But Georgie gets a job offer she can't refuse, that means she'll have to stay in LA and work through Christmas. She thinks that they'll just cancel their trip, but what she didn't expect was for Neal to take their two daughters and go without her.

Georgie knows things haven't been happy in their marriage for a long time, but she's never really stopped to think about it. Now that Neal is gone, she's starting to feel the void, how much she misses him, and what her life would be like without him. She can't even bare to go home to her empty house, so she stays at her parents. It's while she's in her childhood bedroom, calling Neal on the landline, that she figures out a way to talk to Neal in the past. And she wonders if this is supposed to be her chance to make things right with him again.

This story is so different and so brilliant. Not only is it about a marriage in trouble, but it's also about falling in love again and remembering all of those things you loved about that person from day one. It's about learning from your mistakes and not taking things for granted. This book was more than just a story - it's a life lesson. Whether in marriages or friendships, they take work and you have to put in what you want to get out. I fell in love with Georgie and Neal's story. My heart was bursting during the moments Georgie was remembering all of their good times and how they fell in love. It was truly an amazing and emotional read, and I can't express just how much I loved it.

Rainbow Rowell's writing is beautiful. I love the humor and the dialogue between characters. I love how her stories just flow seamlessly and how enraptured I am when I pick up her books. I love how I never want to put her books down. I love the emotions that I feel whenever I fall in love with her characters. If you haven't read any of her books, I can't recommend them enough. This is a must read.

2.0 de 5 estrelas The most believable thing about the story was the magical phone... 18 de dezembro de 2014
Por Kate Lansing - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
I'm a HUGE fan of Rainbow Rowell, having loved Eleanor and Park, Fangirl, and even the quirky Attachments. But I just couldn't get into this book...

The biggest problem was that the premise was just so unbelievable. And I'm not talking about the magic phone. I didn't buy that Georgie and Neal's marriage survived this long when they communicated so little. But beyond that, I just didn't like the characters. Georgie seemed naive and selfish, Neal arrogant and annoying, and don't even get me started on Seth...

The writing was still very good, and the dialogue a saving grace. I would rather have read a story about Heather and her pizza delivery person, which was my favorite scene in the book.

You would think as much as I liked to read I would be better at putting my thoughts into words...well for me that's not really the case. 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 8...which, if you look under book description at the publication date of Landline, it is also July 8. Coincidence?? 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...although at times I wanted to knock him in the head. 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...ok more than a tad, but who cares.

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? Guilty! 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. Read this book. You will understand what I am trying to say better than I can say it I'm sure.

4.0 de 5 estrelas Rowell as with Elanor and Park writes another emotional stunner -not to be missed! 16 de setembro de 2016

I loved and disliked this book at the same time. Rowell crafts a story that has the reader siding with the husband but also siding with the wife who wants to be good at her career. That's where liking the wife for me ended. One can be good at what you do and still make time for the people who make a difference in your life - those you love. Georgie, however, a writer for a tv sitcom can't seem to break herself away from her own ambition and male pal writer long enough to care about her husband who has given up his own career to stay home and care for their two children. Georgie barely has time for their children let alone anything extra to spare for Neal. Although she knows her marriage is in trouble she really doesn't realize how serious it is. Not until Neal takes the children to visit his parents for Christmas does Georgie come to realize that his going may be forever if she doesn't fix it. But she has no idea where to start, so she goes to visit her own parents in town for solace. Determined to call and talk it out with Neal she retreats to her old room and hooks up her pink Princess phone so she can make the call in private. When the phone is answered by Neal's deceased father, Georgie is left staring at the phone - afraid of what will come next..
