4.0 out of 5 stars I loved it! Thank you, Daniel Glattauer., 3 May 2013
By 
This review is from: Every Seventh Wave (Paperback)
If you are lingering around this page, most probably it is because you read and enjoyed the prequel to "Every Seventh Wave", Love Virtually (as I did some time ago, thanks to the brilliant Amazon's Kindle Deal of the Day).

If you have not read the first book Love Virtually, you should do it immediately and prior to buying this one, as "Every Seventh Wave" is a surprise sequel to the virtual love story (that can happen to anybody, or so we would like to think).

Already enjoyed Love Virtually? Then read this! Even though, in my personal opinion, the first book was better. Just a little bit better. Truth be told, there is not much reinventing possible and not much you can do (stylistically, as well as where the story goes) for two books of email correspondence between two romantically involved people. But "Every Seventh Wave" is still surprising, clever, funny, satirical, sad, bittersweet, knowing, wise, thought-provoking and, at the same time, an easy read - I guarantee you will want to finish it in one sitting, and will be hungry for more! The format of the novel (which is made entirely of emails, yet again), is impressively executed by the author, Daniel Glattauer. And what a knowing guy this Herr Glattauer must be - he writes brilliantly using the voice of a female (occasionally hysterical) protagonist and male (occasionally frustratingly useless) one. But female! From a guy!

The storyline builds with uncertainty and I just could not stop turning the pages while the tension was building up. Perhaps occasionally a tiny bit too repetitive (how many "let's meet - let's not meet" email dialogues are needed?) story concluded with an inevitable end. Sadly, I guess, there will be no volume 3.

I loved it! Thank you, Daniel Glattauer.
