An incorrect letter and Emma Rothner's e-mail inadvertently ends up with Leo Leike, a linguist, instead of the intended recipient. Leo answers. An exchange takes its course, which becomes funny and more and more personal. Because they do not know each other, so they do not have to fear loss of face, they trust in each other intimate things. Emma and Leo make a digital friendship and want to leave it at that. But at some point there are butterflies in the bellies and every "pling" in the mailbox shames them up. Maybe they should meet after all? On the other hand, Emma is married to Bernhard and Leo is still hanging on his ex-girlfriend Marlene.

User Reviews

The books are excellent!
3 December 2019 | by chanashamlaSee all my reviews

I liked the books very much, I didn't watch the movie yet, all I know is when I read the first part of the book, I said to myself "I have to make this book a movie" When I read the second part of the book, I said to myself "I have no doubt I make it a movie"unfortunately, is the day when I found the movie, (too late for me ­čś¬) Well ...I'm the book the are bristles for a man, a supplement that changes the look a lot, and honey-colored eyes for a woman that is unique in itself, in my imagination is like how it describes in the book. Even if I'm disappointed that I didn't make the movie, I rate it ten stars just for the book's great success.
