The Midnight Library by Matt Haig Book Summary and Review

The Midnight Library is a book I was excited to read because lots of people were raving about it for weeks after it was released.

While the concept is very unique, I wasn’t as entertained as I thought I would be.

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig Book Summary and Review

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 new 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.

My Book Review for The Midnight Library

This book is one that makes you think like you just read a non-fiction self-help book.

As a fiction book, the concept was very unique and it’s a great idea. It really makes you think about what would have happened if you did this, or moved there, or married that person, etc.

Ultimately, I just wanted to get to the end to see what happened and wasn’t overly entertained with what happened throughout the book.

My The Midnight Library Book Recommendation

You’d like this book if you like books that are deep… books that make you think and contemplate life.

It’s a good book about life in general and will make you stop questioning if the grass is greener on the other side.
