The Midnight Library by Matt Haig Book Summary

The New York Times bestselling WORLDWIDE phenomenon
Winner of the Goodreads Choice Award for Fiction | A Good Morning America Book Club Pick
"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.

100000/10One of the best books I’ve ever read..Score: 5/5

10/10I used to enjoy reading so much but it has been YEARS since I last picked up a book. I’ve recently gone threw a bout of depression, and just last week during one of my “quiet” moments I felt the need to try to start again. I spent an hour searching for the perfect book, one that I hoped we keep my interest, and this without a doubt hit it out of the park. It makes you really think about your life, and puts it into a perception that you’ve probably never seen it in before. 10/10, 5 stars, I’m recommending to everyone..Score: 5/5

Cute and heartwarmingCreative tale about life. Short and easy read, also easily holds your attention..Score: 5/5

I have founded my new favorite fiction authorThe Midnight Library read as easy as a conversation. I enjoyed the premise although deeper characters would have been an improvement. They had a “one dimensional” sort of feel to them. Well written and I’m looking forward to reading more from Mr. Haig..Score: 5/5

HeartwarmingI loved this book! Great concept and creatively written. Makes you really think!.Score: 5/5

Perfect for Those Who DespairWhile this book lacks the belief in a High Power, the vision of ridding oneself of regrets emanates loudly in the protagonists experiences. Easy read..Score: 4/5

Great readSleep deprived with a newborn, I still managed to read “just one more chapter” night after night. A beautiful book full of wisdom and honesty..Score: 5/5

Regrets halt progressThis book was something I needed at this point in my life. Other reviews said it was uplifting and I suppose that’s true, but mainly it’s eye-opening. It’s a reminder that the life you’re living is also skewed by the life of yesterday- you’re obsessing over. So, stop obsessing over what’s done if you can. Presence. Being present matters..Score: 5/5

Great Read!Wow incredible book. I was skeptical from the description, but ultimately decided to try it and it’s now one of my favorite books!.Score: 5/5

Poorly executedVery exciting premise with a strong beginning but everything that followed was poorly executed — juvenile writing style, plot gets repetitive, the “lessons” are obvious.Score: 2/5

Best book I’ve read in awhile!Very thought provoking! I very much enjoyed this book.Score: 5/5

Beautiful BookI loved this book. It is so refreshingly different. I have seen criticisms that say anyone could have written it and that it’s predictable. I so disagree. The whole premise of the book is that no one is just anyone. And predictability can be the best thing life has to offer. This book is not only entertaining but chock full of “life-isms” that are nothing short of profound. I found myself so drawn to this book just to find out where Nora ends up next. I have kind of become a “Nora” due to the pandemic and this book helped take me out if that for a time. This is a story written by a true storyteller. Matt Haig has spent some serious time thinking of the possibilities and all I can say is “wow”..Score: 5/5
