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.Síle 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 Síle'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?

Cute romance! But plagued by tired tropes of lesbian fiction, such as the plot revolving around questions of commitment and monogamy. Also characters of color being present mostly for 'flavor,' acting as an awkward mouthpiece for the white author's views on race, and having their stories and needs subsumed into those of their white partners.

I was hoping this would be just as captivating as Room, but not so. A few times I contemplated putting it aside and reading another time, but I plodded thru. The characters were likable, but the story didn't really keep my attention.

Romance of two people meeting, falling in love, maintaining a long-distance relationship and the unavoidable problems arising thereof - the only difference between this and any other slightly sugary love story being that it is between two women...

The story of 2 women who fall in love and have a long distance relationship. It was a so-so love story that is remarkable only because the two lovers are both women. Having said that, it is emminently readable and the writing is well done.

A lovely story that I found a little too slow at times. But, overall, it was a nice story, easy read, new perspective on love.
