What an exceptional book! I have always had that feeling of "what if I would have done this differently", "what if I never dated that person", how would my life be different? IN Matt Haig's new novel The Midnight Library answers those questions for the main protagonist Nora Seed. Nora has decided to die, she feels as if this world isn't for her anymore. Then she ends up at The Midnight Library where she can choose from different books of her life and see how those life's would have turned out, if she did them differently. As long as Nora continues to stay alive in her 'root" life, the library will continue to exist. But what if when you can go back, you see that that life isn't for you either? Nora has tried many lives but is becoming discouraged with how she feels with each new life. Matt Haig is a wonderful writer that will captivate the reader of The Midnight library. Although this is a heavy book with heavy subject material, it is also a book about hope. About the hope that we have once we choose to live, and not just live until the time comes we are not alive anymore. But to actually live and love the life we are in. How we are the chooser of happiness and how we can't expect our life to be better without putting in that effort. Was very hard to put down this book once I got going. Was rich with characters and with life and hope.
