A breath of positivity much needed in 2020.
This book is written with multiple concepts like space-time continuum,time slipping, life after death sort of things without going into too much depth of the technicalities I would suggest reading it as a story of coming of age with emotions and real life situations.
This book is definitely a worth read for people who live inside there heads more than anywhere else. People who often think “what if” and am I living upto my full potential rather than in terms of ‘carpe diem’ living the happiest possible and TBH I’m ‘those people’ and this book was such a beautiful reminder to be happy and try to look for the light at the and of the tunnel as you can always find it, even though it seems impossible in the moment but as they say ‘this too shall pass’.
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.
