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.

    Great listen! Loved the story, the pacing and how beautifully it unfolds. Great for all of us, but a gift to late bloomers or anyone living with sadness or regret.

    Creative to say the least. I loved everything about this book. It's impossible not to relate to the story.

    One of the best books I’ve read in years. Well-written literary, thought provoking, really enjoyed. Thank you Mr. Haig

  • Briana G.

    Sweet storyline, interesting plot line. Definitely pulls you in and is a nice read. Not the most intricate or complex piece, but a refreshing read.

    I appreciate the moral of the story, but this book was waaaay drawn out. Seemed like the same format for each “mini-story”… didn’t need to be almost 9 hours. Would have been much better as a novel or even short story.

  • Karyn G.

    I really enjoyed this! It kept me interested the entire time. Narration was great as well!

    What a fabulous book - i loved the read

  • Dahlia F.

    I really admired the opening and closing philosophical conversations and use if quantum physics as a concept for exploring life, but found the middle of the book to be slightly repetitive and verging on preachy.

  • Christine P.

    Fantastic story. Loved every second of it— Carey Mulligan was the perfect narrator!
