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 | Independent (London) Ten Best Books of the Year

"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.

SO GOOD!I finished this in two days! I loved this book! Highly recommend. It makes you think about life and “mistake” and “regrets” in a simple and beautiful way. 10/10.Score: 5/5

Lovely story, makes you thinkI happen to be at a stage where navel-gazing is a hobby not uncommon to those in my circumstance. This book helped snapped me out of it, by reminding me that one doesn’t get do-overs. The story is unique and charming, and the characters compelling enough to engage you for a fast read..Score: 5/5

Loved itWell written book that left me questioning myself and everything moving forward. Great 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

This book was phenomenalI think it might have saved my life. I was prepared to die at the same time as I was reading the last few chapters. When I got to nora’s realization and final decision...I couldn’t stop crying because it echoed so closely to my life..Score: 5/5

A Terrific Fantasy, With A Physics ClassI liked this book very much. It’s a wonderful fantasy grounded in physics. It’s a story that speaks to everyone, about the choices we make, and the impact our choices make not only on our own lives, but the lives of everyone around us..Score: 4/5

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

Midnight LibraryI really liked this book! The author took the same concept that all the acclaimed spiritual teachers talk about and then ingeniously spun it into an entertaining story that really exemplifies the message everyone needs to grasp in order to appreciate this life we have been blessed to live! I don’t even think he mentioned God in the whole book, yet I found it to be very spiritual. Excellent read!.Score: 5/5

Amazing!This is a thought provoking book that also has such a great story! It makes you wonder what your regrets are and how life could be different. Yet reminds you that any life can be changed if you want it bad enough. So good!.Score: 5/5

Midnight LibraryI really liked this book! It put life into perspective for me. Very inspiring..Score: 5/5

Great Read!First book I’ve read this year and I finished it so quickly. It’s beautiful!.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: 5/5

Catches you from the startThis book catches you from the start. It gets emotionally real right away. You’re immediately at the point when you think— Oh this might be too deep and too sad, but the funny and witty character it grabs you. I loved this unexpected journey..Score: 5/5

Interesting premiseInteresting premise. Not the best writing style, and a bit cheesy. However, kept my attention. Worth a read if you’re looking for something distracting and like the idea of the novel..Score: 3/5

Thought provokingI loved this book!.Score: 5/5

Good read!This book had an intriguing premise and I found it quite thought provoking. It did have some fluff about 3/4 of the way through that felt a little more like filler but that being said I felt like the ending was strong. This is my first read by this author and I’m definitely going to try another of his works!.Score: 4/5

Amazing, captivating story with a strong moralThis book had my attention from the beginning. I couldn’t put it down. Matt Haig has a talent for holding onto the reader’s attention, and for storytelling as a whole. The book had me laughing, tearing up, rolling my eyes on a couple occasions, but all around: it had me feeling. I definitely recommend this to every type of reader..Score: 5/5

Great read!I really enjoyed this!.Score: 5/5

Dopamine inducing readThis book was quite enjoyable, especially on a hot summer day. It gave me a reminder to see the possibility in my own life. The big things and smaller things, and to be supportive of myself and the people I love in my life. I especially enjoyed the way the author looked into mental illness through this book, with empathy and honesty rather than a fixation on the problems it spurs. Reading about Nora’s struggles and triumphs made me feel so emotional. A great and uplifting read!.Score: 5/5

A bit dull.This story is mostly a series of anecdotes essentially, making it hard to keep up with and even care about any of the MANY characters introduced, seeing as they came and went with each chapter. I see the hopeful message trying to be portrayed here (how could I not when it’s literally written out for you very clearly, no thinking involved), but I wouldn’t recommend this book..Score: 2/5

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
