"A feel-good book guaranteed to lift your spirits."—The Washington Post

The dazzling reader-favorite about the choices that go into a life well lived, from the acclaimed author of How To Stop Time and The Comfort Book.


Somewhere out beyond the edge of the universe there is a library that contains an infinite number of books, each one the story of another reality. One tells the story of your life as it is, along with another book for the other life you could have lived if you had made a different choice at any point in your life. While we all wonder how our lives might have been, what if you had the chance to go to the library and see for yourself? Would any of these other lives truly be better?

In The Midnight Library, Matt Haig's enchanting blockbuster novel, Nora Seed finds herself faced with this decision. Faced with the possibility of changing her life for a new one, following a different career, undoing old breakups, realizing her dreams of becoming a glaciologist; she must search within herself as she travels through the Midnight Library to decide what is truly fulfilling in life, and what makes it worth living in the first place.

Good, but predictable

I liked this book. It made me think and the concept of The Midnight library is pretty cool. Only con is that it was pretty predictable. I guessed the ending before I was even halfway through the book.

Necessary

A book i will read one a year for healthy mental housekeeping. It reminds us that our lives are ours by default and our very small decisions change so much. Ultimately very thankful for my life after reading this

Fun Read

This was a fun book to read. I made it about 3/4 of the way through before it started getting redundant and a bit preachy. I’d recommend it to a friend but I will say it came off a bit “self-helpy” by the end which was disappointing.
