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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Best for a romantic break ... Rom-com fans will lap it up. * GRAZIA *
I was completely knocked sideway by how good Landline is. -- Alison Flood * THE BOOKSELLER *
This clever romantic comedy is perfect company for a stretch on the beach. * GLAMOUR *
This is a great journey book, as Georgie fumbles about finding herself and what she and Neal need to stay together. I recommend this to anybody for a fun summer read (even though it is set at Christmas!), and I really enjoyed the ups and downs of Georgie's Christmas turmoil. * THE GUARDIAN ONLINE *
Landline's premise is fairly simple: given the chance to change a small aspect of the past, would you? But there's so much more. Rowell's way with dialogue is amazing (and useful, given that most of the book consists of telephone conversations). Neal's mother, only ever a presence on the other end of the line, is as well realised as any of the characters we get to 'see'. Landline is great on the complexities of adult relationships too, showing how a search for balance can be what love is made of and how a thousand tiny compromises mean more than the grandest romantic gesture * EMERALD STREET *
If you could talk to someone in the past in order to influence the future, would you? That's the idea behind Rainbow Rowell's clever new book. * WOMAN *

“Good but lacking”

Review: I was really looking forward to this book having enjoyed Attatchments immensely, and more than I enjoyed Eleanor and Park so another adult novel from Rainbow Rowell seemed perfect. I did find this book fun and... More

“Another PERFECT book!”

I received this book on Saturday the 15th February and dropped my entire life so that I could read it straight away. I finished it on the 16th February at around 2:30am. That’s how good it was.
