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.

ExcellentThe story was beautiful and the writing superb. Really loved the character development..Score: 5/5

One of my favorite booksThe ending was hard to except but was still amazing, the entire story is just overall great..Score: 5/5

Great book, different, unpredictable, a great love story !Great book ! It takes you through times of the past, historical moments but is a love story. Love the author’s way of keeping the story flowing !.Score: 5/5

Must readAmazing. Keep me guessing until the end. Sad that Addie traded herself to give Henry his life back. Bitter sweet – are you got to continue living immortally with Luke.Score: 5/5

All the feelsThis book was one of those that is more engrossed in feelings than actions—beautifully written. And weirdly incredibly relatable. Yet, I felt perhaps it was a tad longer than it needed to be. And yet again, I highly recommend it..Score: 4/5

An incredible storyI couldn’t put it down. I could feel the anticipation, and the 300 years of build up made it all better. And I loved the author’s style and storytelling..Score: 5/5

Lovely bookGreat story and very touching. Makes you think about love... loss and time... and how little of it, there really is..Score: 5/5

WOWThis book is so beautifully written. A whole masterpiece. The twist at the end “I remember you” made my heart ache..Score: 5/5

Waste of timeI don’t understand the praise for this book. There were so many spectacular events in history that could have been discussed but instead her continually abusive relationship with Luc is emphasized. I kept hoping for something more but never got it. Waste of time and money..Score: 1/5

Please fix iPhone formattingWhen reading on iPhone, this book limits its line length too much. This causes an awkward amount of white space and fails to utilize the screen effectively. This problem seems to be unique to this book, so maybe an update could resolve the issue..Score: 5/5

So beautifully writtenYou don’t realize until you come across a book like this how much you’ve been missing out on truly good writing. The grammar, sentence structures, descriptions are all so very rich. And to mix this with a wonderful story is quite the treat. So a big thank you to the author. It’s been a pleasure to read your book..Score: 5/5

Wow.This book started of quite slow but once you pass those chapters it’ll be a worthwhile. Beautifully written..Score: 5/5

Good but too longI liked this book a lot, but it was too long and repetitive for me. That style makes sense with the premise though..Score: 4/5

What a great book.I mean, I don’t even know what to say. The plot twists and ending are the best part. Stop what you are doing and starting reading this masterpiece. Thank you, V.E Schwab..Score: 5/5

Slow SimmerYou’ll find a slow start, but simmering always blends flavors better than a roiling boil..Score: 5/5

So Unexpectedly BeautifulI am not normally one for suspense or darker themes, but there is something weirdly lovely about this book. I only hate that I cannot read it for the first time again!.Score: 5/5

My favorite bookSo beautifully written. It shattered my heart and put it back together again..Score: 5/5

A work of art ongI love this book and will never stop recommending it. it’s beautifully written and i love books that move slowly. it’s okay to be a little bored in the first parts, when you get to part four your interest will be piqued..Score: 5/5

Falls flat several timesI wanted to like this book. The premise is great but the story fell stagnant several times. By the conclusion I felt uninvested in the story..Score: 3/5

Genuinely the best book I’ve ever read.Just read the title, that should be enough..Score: 5/5

This book is literal magic ✨July 29th, 1714: Addie LaRue makes a bargain with the darkness to become immortal and save herself from a loveless marriage that will force her to stay in her small French hometown for the rest of her life. But Addie doesn’t quite understand the consequences of her actions. She can still feel pain and get injured, but she heals quickly. She stays young forever and doesn’t age. But with everything good comes consequence: No one can remember her for more than one night. Not her family, her friends or those she meets along the way. She sees the darkness in the form of what she imagined her soulmate would look like - long dark hair and piercing green eyes, or Luc, as she names him. Luc is the only one who can remember her and though he wants her to give in and give up her immortal life, they’re strangely drawn to each other. 2014: Enter Henry. Also of dark hair and green eyes. And 300 years since the day she was cursed she finds someone who can remember her too. As they get to know each other they fall in love. And while Henry does age and grow older, there’s something else he’s keeping from Addie. We get dual timelines from the past as well as “present day” 2014. I found it fascinating to watch Addie navigate her new life and it’s limitations. Throughout the years Addie finds new ways to leave her mark on history. Her relationship with both Henry and Luc absolutely broke me in the most beautiful way. While there is a bit of slow start with world building, Schwab’s writing was beautiful and kept me going. I could see and feel the story as if I were there. I loved getting to read how Addie found herself, love and how to leave her mark along the way. She is an amazing strong, female lead!.Score: 5/5
