Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Acclaimed Irish author Emma Donoghue's fifth novel, Landing, is a story about how far people will step outside their comfort zones to be with the ones they love. Told through the eyes of Sile O'Shaughnessy, a cosmopolitan Irish flight attendant, and Jude Turner, a sheltered museum archivist from Ireland, Ontario, Landing is a touching, if not somewhat repetitive exploration of what we are, and are not, willing to give up for love.

From the moment Jude and Sile first meet aboard a transatlantic flight, the chemistry between them is undeniable. After a rushed coffee at Heathrow, each woman returns to her own life, yet they are unable to shake the butterflies of that initial encounter. What follows is a long-distance exchange of passionate e-mails, letters, phone calls, and visits, most of which leave Sile and Jude feeling both exhilarated and despondent after each goodbye. Surrounding each heroine is a circle of friends and family members whose romantic struggles and successes highlight the pleasure and pain that often come with falling in love.

Landing is a quick read, and it's easy to become absorbed in this engaging long-distance relationship. Donoghue is skilled at brining out the humanity in each woman, so the sacrifices they both must make to keep their relationship alive never seem forced. And while we may grow tired of the constant late night missives and teary-eyed goodbyes, we find ourselves rooting for this couple, and hoping they will go the distance. --Gisele Toueg -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

If you have ever been in a long distance relationship....and I don't mean within the same country ....you have got to read this book.
Absolutely loved it and a lot of things in it reminded me of some of the feelings I had when I was just aching for my lover so far away.
It made it even more realistic for me because this is before Skype really caught on and supercheap phonecalls happened - I have been through that and having spent a LOT of money on phonecalls I was hella amused by that bit of the novel.
I also really liked that one character was just butch, without further ado - but was also sexually kind of fluid.
That really mirrored my world and made me love the book even more.
And Sile being that femininely described in very little but poignant detail made me really fall in lust with her...apart from the fact that she was written as a very attractive woman to me.
There is just soooo much right with this novel, that I just want to recommend it to all my lesbian literature loving friends, who are sick to their eyeballs with coming out stories.
The only gripes I have with is the backwards and forwards both characters go through repeatedly ..ooooh ....and Jael....I coulda kicked her for her behaviour.

Dream. Of Being Together. 13. September 2007
Von Cipriano - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I just finished reading my sixth book by Emma Donoghue.
I was just about to say sixth "novel" but three of the others were short story collections. Emma is a terrific short-storyist, and yet I think she is even a greater novelist. She's written five. So let's talk about this one, her latest, called Landing.
First off, I freakin' LOVED IT.
Landing is about two women that fall for each other while having coffee and eating raisin crumpets at London's Heathrow airport. They met because an old guy died on the first woman. And when I say "on" I mean "on". But yet, not what you think!
Her name is Jude Turner. She was on a flight to London to retrieve her ill mother. Jude is from a small town, [fictitious] Ireland, Ontario, and this is her first time in a plane. The old man seated next to her quietly croaks, and leans into her. At first Jude thinks he is merely sleeping. Alerting the stewardess to the situation, they together conclude that he is totally dead.
Upon landing at Heathrow, they meet again at the baggage carousel and end up in the restaurant, talking. Not her and the dead guy. Her and this hot stewardess.
Sile [pronounced Sheila] is her name. Sile O'Shaunessy. She lives in Dublin, and she is Irish / Indian. Voluptuous. Ravishing, even. Sile is hip, addicted to technology, and leads a vibrant, socially exuberant, urban lifestyle.
Jude is in very worn jeans, and is somewhat androgynous. She cuts her own hair. Badly. She rides a Triumph motorcylce when she is not driving her old rusty Ford Mustang. She eschews technology and leads an extremely quiet life as a museum curator, back in Ontario.
Although Sile and Jude go their separate ways after their initial encounter, they cannot seem to forget about each other.
And so, they re-connect. Sile initiates this.
But their re-connection is limited to the telephone and [later] the Internet.
E-mail. Also, old-fashioned actual paper letters are sent!
While their relationship grows as a result of these connections, the very [shall we say, untactile?] means in which they are forced to communicate only accentuates the physical distance between them.
In a phrase, it drives them crazy!
And so they meet again.
And then return to their respective corners of the planet.
And e-mail, and telephone, and call and call, and write, and e-mail.
And dream.
Of being together.

Landing is a wonderfully-written, realistic look at the difficulties inherent in long-distance relationships... or LDR's, as they are often referred to in the book.
There may have been a time when lovers restricted their "partner-finding" to some sort of five-mile radius of their own homestead, but those days are over. Ours is the era of the global village, and there are really very few insurmountable geographical boundaries to "love."
We want the best for Sile and Jude, even while we, the readers, are often just as confused as they are, as to what the best might mean for them!
There are many twists and many turns in this novel which I will not at all mention here. I encourage you to GET THE BOOK and enjoy these for yourself.
At the end of Landing, I cried. A bit. In a public place [Starbucks]. I must confess.
Emma Donoghue is one of my favorite contemporary writers, and Landing is a winner.

welcome back to the present 20. August 2007
Von Deborah Peifer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
As much as I thoroughly enjoyed Emma Donoghue's historical novels Slammerkin and Life Mask, I'll confess to a longing for her to turn her extraordinary novelist's eye to a contemporary topic. Landing fulfills that wish and a great deal more. This is a story that could only take place in the time of easy international travel, email, and long-distance telephone. And yet, the long-distance relationship that Donoghue explores is all the more painful because of these aids to long-distance communication. It seems as if they are always in touch, but touch, physical, sensual, tactile, is just what is missing despite the connections offered by phone and email. Sile and Jude are wonderful characters, vibrant, funny, touching, and imperfect in complementary ways. Their effort to connect, to make hard choices, to love one another despite the distance (Jude is in Ontario, Canada, Sile in Dublin and the Atlantic Ocean is far more than a pond), despite their very different ways of seeing and being in the world, is the stuff of a great story, and Donoghue is a great storyteller. I recommend Landing highly. It is a splendid novel that will make you think about your own life and your own choices in a completely new way.

I Loved this Novel! 10. September 2007
Von Finbar Fellowes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Having read Donoghue's other work did not really prepare me for how much I would like this contemporary novel.
Donoghue is one of a very few novelists who writes about lesbians and their lives in an intelligent and literate way. This book is light, and smart and very well written.
It perfectly creates the longing and uncertainty involved in starting a new relationship when everything is up for grabs.
Donoghue can do it all.
Reading Landing makes me look forward to whatever else comes next
I loved it.

Best Romance I've Read This Year 23. Juli 2007
Von Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I was immediately hooked into this story about an "against-all-odds" love relationship. At the center of the story are two heroines, each likeable in her own way, who exemplify the saying that "opposites attract."
Jude Turner is a young museum curator who has always lived a simple life in a village (population: 600) in Canada. She has no desire for a cell phone, credit card, or even an alarm clock. She doesn't use e-mail and is fearful of air travel.
When Jude must fly to London, she encounters the cosmopolitan Sile O'Shaughnessy, an attractive flight attendant who resides in Dublin. Sile's constant companion is her "gizmo" that she uses to check her stocks and text-message her friends.
As their attraction for each other grows, they face the obstacles of their different lifestyles, doubting friends, and the thousands of miles that separate them.
This story is, by turns, funny, sad, sensual, and joyous, as Jude and Sile attempt to find common ground in more ways than one.

Fasten your seat belt and enjoy! 24. April 2008
Von M. J. Lowe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Life is about to change for Jude Turner in Emma Donoghue's novel, Landing. The 25 year old archivist/curator of a one-room schoolhouse museum in her very small town of Ireland, Ontario, Canada, is "celebrating" New Years Eve by flying to the United Kingdom to see her mother, who has been visiting her sister, Jude's aunt. This mysterious request from Jude's aunt heralds illness and loss for Jude. Thus for the first time Jude, the self-proclaimed Luddite, is on a plane. It will be one of many firsts as an unusual incident during the flight prompts her meeting Síle O'Shaughnessy, a meeting that will have long term effects on both women. Síle is a 39-year-old flight attendant of Indo-Celtic heritage with nearly 20 years of experience in her career. A resident of Dublin, Ireland, Síle is a cosmopolitan, high-tech, and high energy lesbian whose fast-paced vagabond life suits her. She was born, after all, at 40,000 feet.
