not just a GAY love story but a gay LOVE story. oh, my heart, this was fantastic. also, incredible wrt the problems inherent in long distance relationships, especially those strongly dependent on technology. READ IT. ( )
For some reason, I was convinced this was a collection of short stories. Much to my surprise, it was the kind of story I was looking to read.
Also really loved how the LGBT relationships were just relationships.
I also have the fantasy of living in a small town, earning enough to get by, not wanting for much.
between 3 and 3.5 stars. this was a sweet read although
(it's not her fault but the cover image should have an obviously brown arm, not one white arm and one slightly less white arm.)
a quote from pascal that seems apropos right now:
"The sole cause of man's unhappiness is that he does not know how to stay quietly in his room. -- Pascal; Pensees"
Stewardess Síle en jonge museummedewerker Jude worden tijdens een vlucht van Canada naar Londen verliefd. Maar ja, die afstand... De tegenstelling stad en platteland speelt een rol, wie wil haar leven opgeven en verkassen? Een moeilijk jaar volgt en natuurlijk loopt het boek goed af.
Dit boek viel mij wat tegen. Het was romantisch en tobberig, maar ik had op grond van 'Room' iets meer diepgang verwacht.
Oh my god, this book just dragged on and on... boring as hell and as romantic as a kitchen appliance. Donoghue's only redemption was the beautiful quotes at the beginning of each chapter.
A delightful, old-fashioned love story with a uniquely twenty-first-century twist, Landing is a romantic comedy that explores the pleasures and sorrows of long-distance relationships-the kind millions of us now maintain mostly by plane, phone, and Internet. Sile is a stylish citizen of the new Dublin, a veteran flight attendant who's traveled the world. Jude is a twenty-five-year-old archivist, stubbornly attached to the tiny town of Ireland, Ontario, in which she was born and raised. On her first plane trip, Jude's and Sile's worlds touch and snag at Heathrow Airport. In the course of the next year, their lives, and those of their friends and families, will be drawn into a new, shaky orbit. This sparkling, lively story explores age-old questions: Does where you live matter more than who you live with? What would you give up for love, and would you be a fool to do so?
