Love Virtually

Love Virtually by Daniel Glattauer
Published February 1 2011 Maclehose Press
I picked this up from the library after reading about it in The Bookseller. It is brilliant! I literally devoured every word and immediately ordered its sequel Every Seventh Wave.
Emmi wishes to cancel a magazine subscription and so she e-mails to do so. She misspells the e-mail address and sends her request instead to Leo. So far so rom-com, but its when you start reading their e-mails to each other that you fall in love with the characters and the story. The flaw in this budding romance? Emmi is married. Yet this extra curricular flirtation did not make me dislike her.
You will fly through this book, its just...a gem.
***Fun fact 1: This novel has been translated from German***
***Fun fact 2: It was read on BBC Radio 4 by David Tennant *swoon* and Emilia Fox***
