Loved this. Probably because of it being more closely aligned with my own life than her YA books, but still. This is definitely more character driven than plot driven, and don't expect any clear answers. Made me hug my husband and kiddos a little tighter. ( )

Georgie McCool's marriage is in trouble, it has been for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal loves her - but that's besides the point.

Two days before they're supposed to leave Los Angeles, California to visit Neal's family in Omaha, Nebraska for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal she can't go. She's a TV writer and a possibility of her own showing being picked up as arisen. She expects Neal to be upset with her - he's usually a little upset with her - but she doesn't expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her.

That night at her Mother's house, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It's not exactly time travel, but the landline lets her call back in time to college-aged Neal, right before he proposed to her. Georgie feels like she's been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts... but she isn't sure what she needs to do, or if that would even be a good idea... would Neal and Georgie be better off without being together?

So, I didn't hate this book, but it wasn't my favorite book of all times either. I think it was mostly because I didn't like Neal. He just wasn't a likeable character for me and I found it hard to root for Georgie and his relationship. A small part of me almost wanted them to not get back together - but a bigger part of me still wanted them together, it was a tug-of-war battle for me.

I'm not a big Romance genre reader, but I did feel like this was more about the hardship of a relationship and the give and take of marriage type of thing. I'm also not married with kids and an attention taking job, so maybe I didn't relate to it as much as another reader might.

I will say Georgie's voice was very genuine. She opened up her heart and showed the reader all the truths about her life and relationship. She was an honest character to read about. Though I still struggled with liking her character here and there (like the whole phone battery situation... girl, go get it fixed, it will take all of 5 minutes).

This is a cute, marriage relationship struggle book. Definitely a fiction book and not a YA, which is what a lot of readers probably think of when they see Rainbow Rowell. It's also set around Christmas! Might have been a cutesy book to have read layers up with blankets on my couch in December and not in the middle of April. ( )

It has a main character named Georgie McCool--how cool is that?

It has time travel, of sorts, for those of us intrigued by science fictional tropes, but it isn't technical wizardry science fiction that would ruin the mood for others.

It has pugs, two of them, Porky and Petunia. It has pug puppies, newborns nestled in the clothes dryer.

It has a rom-com ending that isn't sickly sweet, but perfect, with enough ambiguity to make one consider life carefully.

It is thoughtful and funny and marvelous and you read it word by word careful not to miss anything and you are sad when it ends, but only because it ends, not because of the way it ends.

It's a nearly perfect book. It is a perfect book, except for the "discussion questions" at the end. Don't read the fucking discussion questions!

What really makes a book of the summer is when we surprise ourselves. It’s not just about being fascinated by a book. It’s about being fascinated by the fact that we’re fascinated.

The odds:4-1
Landline
Rainbow Rowell
Pros: Keen psychological insight, irrepressible humor and a supernatural twist: a woman can call her husband in the past.
Cons: Relative lack of violence, perverse sex.
