The Midnight Library is one I would recommend to anyone struggling with regret. At the end of the book, I found my own perspective on a major regret I have in my own life shifted, through seeing Nora's journey of uncovering more nuances in her lives she is allowed to go back and experience. I would call this book good and not great, because I found it far-fetched the level of achievement she was able to attain in multiple lives. I also felt that the author too often came right out and stated things he was alluding to, which always makes me assume the author thinks their readers are stupid! It loses its impact and beauty when beaten to death. But I can honestly say this is the most uplifting book about attempted suicide I've ever read!
