Title: The Midnight Library
Author: Matt Haig
This book sat on my shelf for far too long and my anticipation was strong. Luckily, Matt Haig did not disappoint!
Nora Seed has decided that she no longer wants to live. In the last twenty-four hours she lost her job and her beloved cat and so it seemed to her a good a time as any to swallow a bunch of capsules and check out. The afterlife wasn’t the peace Nora had hoped for, but instead was a large library full of green books and a familiar librarian from her past.
She soon learns that within the pages of each book lies a life that could have been hers. Each variation of Nora’s life was built by the decisions she could have made or the regrets that she held. In this parallel universe, Nora has the chance to see what her life may be like if things had been different. She experiences lives where she is famous, successful, poor, and broken. Each time she feels unsatisfied she transplants to a new version of Nora’s life.
With a beautiful message of contentment and making our own happiness in life this book was worth all of the acclaim in my opinion.
I gave this book 5/5 stars
