Lovereading view...

Love Virtually is a funny, fast-paced and utterly absorbing novel, with plenty of twists and turns, about a love affair conducted entirely by email. It's a book that seems to have an amazing effect on all who read it and as a consequence there's a real buzz in the blogosphere in particular. So why not check out the extract here on Lovereading, get yourself hooked and you won't be able to resist the temptation to purchase.


Love Virtually by Daniel Glattauer

It begins by chance: Leo receives emails in error from an unknown woman called Emmi. Being polite he replies, and Emmi writes back. A few brief exchanges are all it takes to spark a mutual interest in each other, and soon Emmi and Leo are sharing their innermost secrets and longings. The erotic tension simmers, and it seems only a matter of time before they will meet in person. But they keep putting off the moment - the prospect both unsettles and excites them. And, after all, Emmi is happily married. Will their feelings for each other survive the test of a real-life encounter?
