"[Narrator Julia] Whelan's performance is unforgettable in this darkly romantic fantasy about one young woman cursed always to be forgotten...Her depiction of the darkness is smooth with a low cadence, capturing listeners' attention and their heart strings." -- Booklist
In the vein of The Time Traveler’s Wife and Life After Life, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is New York Times bestselling author V. E. Schwab’s genre-defying tour de force.
A Life No One Will Remember. A Story You Will Never Forget.
France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever—and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.
Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world.
But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.

This book was so amazing! It was so beautifully written and it really draws you into the story. V.E. Schwab is a master storyteller and has kept my mind lingering in this story days after finishing it. I highly recommend this book. Don’t hesitate! Get this book and read it! I would have put five stars but my phone is broken so I could only select four!!
Worth the listen
This was good, but dragged a little for me in some parts. It’s hard to find truly great books, and I didn’t regret this one like I have others.
Loved Julia Whelan as narrator!! And Schwab’s fantasy trilogy, Shades of Magic, was amazing; however, this book just seemed to drag…. Too many descriptions and I could not easily relate to the protagonist.
