Overview

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, despite Emmi being happily married it seems only a matter of time before they will meet in person. Will their feelings for each other survive the test of a real-life encounter?

And if so, what then?

Love Virtually is a funny, fast-paced and absorbing experience, with plenty of twists and turns, about a love affair conducted by email.

It was such a great book!! I decided to just read it one night and fell in love. I couldnt stop reading. I love how just by one magazine subscription two strangers fell in love. It kept me guessing the whole way along but i did not like/expect the ending. I was hoping they would meet or see who they actually fell in love with.

Hate to be the one to give it a bad review, but apart from the fact that i couldnt put the book down it drove me insane because the main woman is such a selfish witch im glad in the end at least she got what she deserves

Love it. They don't even mean to talk and it becomes a daily thing for them. They try to meet and emmi doesn't think any are good to look at. It made me keep reading and i couldn't stop. I recomended it to every one i know.

This book was amazing. I think it might be my favorite book. Leo is a relatable character and Emmi is fun, but married! I cryed so hard. When they finally deside to meet, she leaves him!!!!!!!!! Now what is that about? Can you imagen how he must have felt? Crushed. Her too!!!!!! This was heart breaking and unbelievebly good.

It's very possible that this is one of the most awful books I've ever read. The main characters were somewhat predictable and the only reason I got through this book was because I seldom allow myself to stop a book half way through and because I got stuck in hurricane sandy, had no power and this was the free sample that I hadn't read on my nook. The story is somewhat dated....starts out just fine and just gets worse and worse. I will give one star to the ending, though...because it was so final and warranted. Definitely a book that I'll never revisit and may get annoyed at myself for trudging through. The main female character earns the other star because she evoked an emotion in me: the most annoying person to every come into my life (and she's not even real!)

I just finished reading this love story. People are more inclined to express thier true feelings through written word. I ordered a copy of the sequel! Leo and Emmi need another chance.

I wish it ended differently...the way i feel after i read the last page is extremely disappointed however i cant get the characters and story out of my head...i just wantex it to keep going..

This is not "You've Got Mail." This is adult sparing, bright minds, being able to challenge without risk, and this is the story of how fragile we can find ourselves with a stranger. This novel rang true in a unique manner. "This is nonfiction!" kept running through my mind as I read. Eastern European authors have fleshed out human feelings in a way in which I have rarely connected. "Last Temptation of Christ" and "Unbearable Lightness of Being" also evoked deep emotions from me.

From the first page to the last, I just could not put the book down. It's an easy read but the relationship between the two characters are far from easy. The book is translated beautifully.

The book was very original and funny. I had a hard time putting it down but the ending was very anticlimactic.

Had a great story idea and way to write it (through emails) but the ending sucked, making me wish that there was a sequel or that the book at least showed in person get togethers as well. Aside from the ending, very good.
