***REVIEW*** Every Seventh Wave by Daniel Glattauer

The eagerly awaited sequel to "Love Virtually"--2011's wittiest, most compelling love story. ""How will this go on, Leo? The same as before? But where will it go? Nowhere, just on. You live your life, I live mine. And the rest we'll live together." " "Love Virtually" ended as Leo abruptly departed for a new life in the United States, determined to end once and for all the intense cyber-exchange that threatened Emmi's marriage and his own happiness. But shouldn't these unconventional lovers--intimates who have never met in person--get another chance? Readers thought so, and begged for more. The captivating story continues as Leo returns from Boston and gradually resumes his email contact with Emmi. But now he has his own real-life relationship, with Pamela, a woman from the US. Still, Emmi and Leo cannot stop writing to each other, no matter the consequences. When Pamela learns of Leo's secret and unusual liaison, she returns home, and Emmi's marriage to Bernhard is tested to its limits. Once again Daniel Glattauer delivers an irresistible page-turner--and a sequel worthy of the original.

I didn't know there was a sequel to Love Virtually, until I saw it advertised in the back of the Hardcopy. I know I only gave Love Virtually 3.5/4 stars, but Every Seventh  Wave was only 99p on Kindle, and I kind of wanted to know what was going to happen after the cliff hanger at the end of book 1. I bought it straight after finishing book 1, and read it very quickly, over the course of 3 hours maybe.

I gave this one 3 stars, not really great, although it was alright.

It picks up where book 1 left off, with the administrator email. The it skips forwards a while, and alas Emmi and Leo are back in touch :) But things have changed since they last spoke. 

I thought this one was rather fast paced, and could have done with a lot more story to it really. I felt this one seemed rather fictional if you know what I mean, like something that wouldn't really happen. I'm glad I read it to wrap the story up, and I did quite enjoy the characters. But to be honest, I wouldn't rush out and buy book 3 if it came out.


  1. There's a book 3? I'll check out your review of book 1 first and decide if it's for me.

    1. I'm not sure if there's a third but I wouldn't jump on it if there was x

Sorry about the Capatcha! I hate it too, but too much spam lately!
