'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.

    Beautifully written and narrated. Some may say it’s a fairly predictable ending but worth every minute!

  • Derek C.

    Absolutely amazing. Gave me another perspective on life, will definitely listen to it again. I recommend this book!

  • Katina J.

    I absolutely loved the journey our author takes us on in this book. It is a very creative application of self-help guruism knitted into a well structured storyline. It had me thinking and waxing poetic for days afterwards! I recommend this book for anyone who wonders, is it choice or fate?

  • Amy H.

    I enjoyed the beginning and ending of this book but, at points (specifically, throughout the middle), I was pretty bored. The end was well done though, and ultimately makes up for the lag. I think this book could be really helpful for someone in desperate need of hope. And I have a feeling I’ll be thinking about the storyline/concept for awhile. Worth reading, for sure.

  • Elizabeth D.

    The end was a little obvious, but loved how it got there.

  • Anonymous

    Amazing!! Such an intriguing story and a great reader. Really gets you thinking, with a great moral at the end. I highly recommend!

  • Carol P.

    It made for thoughtful reading. It would be nice if we all had midnight libraries!
