Inhaltsangabe zu „Landline“ von 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 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?

Am Rowell-Hype vorbei, ganz nett, das war es aber auch

Eine Reise bei der Michele sein eigenes "Ich" wiederfindet. Ein sehr schönes Hörbuch

Dann schlaf auch du

Spannend, schockierend und furchtbar traurig. Ein sprachgewaltiges Buch, dass sich so richtig keinem Genre zuordnen lässt. Lesenswert!

Drei Tage und ein Leben

Ein beinahe poetisch anmutendes Psychodrama

Bellis-Perennis

Und es schmilzt

Selten so ein langweiliges Buch gelesen. 22 Euro hätten besser angelegt werden können. Leider.

Tief bedrückendes Portrait einer Gesellschaft! Das Buch war nicht immer schön, aber immer lesenswert.

Improvisation pur... kein Tiefgang, kein gar nichts... Schade!

    This audio book was different shades of MEH, yet not completely utterly horrible, still I would not necessarily recommend it if you are looking for something worthwhile listening to. I expected a lot more from the author as she has been receiving a lot of praise for "Eleanor & Park", but this story was just lame and not able to capture me nor my full attention.Geogie McCool's marriage is in all sorts of shambles, yet she is too busy to aknowledge that ever-brooding Husband Neal might be out of the door soon. When Christmas arrives it becomes evident that Georgie won't find the time to travel to Neal's family in Omaha but has to stay in L.A. in order to work on the script of her new show, which might be her breakthrough as a writer.When Neal sets off with their two girls she, of course starts to miss them and tries to cath up with them via phone which isn't an easy task considering that her cellphone is constantly uncharged. The only times to get Neal on the phone is in her old bedroom with her old yellow landline phone, however, it is strangely not nowadays Neal, but Neal from before they were married. Has Georgie the chance to change things around or to even prevent them ever getting married since he would be better off without her?I had several issues with the story: first and foremost the characters were rather bland and Georgie's constant complaining and Neal's brooding and complaining made them at times downright detestable. I simply don't get WHY they hooked up to begin with! Just because Neal is a broody, always slightly pissy Hobbit and Georgie has spectacular hair??? I also don't get why Georgie is beating herself up over the whole "I am a working Mum and my husband has to do everything"-thing! A man in her position wouldn't even bat an eyelash, plus Neal has apparantly not much direction in life. Secondly I was rather nerved by all those references to American comedy shows, which I quite frankly didn't get. Thirdly the speaker Rebecca Lowman wasn't my cup of tea either, still I see the appeal she might have for other listeners. I wouldn't call this audio book an entire waste of time, but there are certainly better ones.
