    Description

    What if you could try out all the lives you could have lived and pick one? Would you choose differently? 

    'Between life and death there is a library,' she said. 'And within that library, the shelves go on for ever. Every book provides a chance to try another life you could have lived. To see how things would be if you had made other choices. Would you have done anything different, if you had the chance to undo your regrets?'

    Thirty-four-year-old Nora's life could be better. She's lonely, single and has just lost her job. Her cat dying feels like the last straw. What else is there to live for? Then she finds a library between life and death where she gets to try all the other lives she could have lived. 

    The Midnight Library is a gloriously relatable novel about life, death and the in-between. It is about finding hope, playing chess, dumping regrets and picking the right people around you.

    a life-changing read !

    When I saw that so many comments were written about this book I was curious . I can see why now ..... I "read" the audio version which was beautifully narrated by Carey Mulligan - a good narrator is SO important . Although you want to get to the end of the book to see what happens to Nora you don't really want it to end - or maybe just go on for ever ! Philosophy , psychology, lessons in life - a great book . Will there be more like it from Matt Haig ? I hope so .

    A great book!

    I wasn t convinced by the summary of the plot at first but this book kept showing up in my recommandation. I thought the subject was overdone but I was wrong and I wasn't able to predict the ending. I really had a great time. Carey Mulligan's performance is impeccable. Don't hesitate.

    The Midnight Library

    I loved every second of this story. The performance was superb and the concept of the library one I think I will remember for always. I lost my brother to depression and it is comforting to think that maybe he too ended up inside the midnight library in one life. Mrs Elm is a superb character. We all need a Mrs Elm in our lives. This book should be prescribed to anyone suffering from Depression or Anxiety. It is - in itself - the gift of life, and one can’t but hope that if listened to by someone at the right time, it might save a life one day. Karen Webb (Author of “A Stranger in Paris”)

    Beautiful read

    It was easy to anticipate much of the storyline, but in this case that didn't take anything away from the experience. Carey Mulligan was flawless except for her Newfoundland pronunciation. Matt Haig is fast becoming one of my favourite authors in both adult and children's fiction. His style is imaginative yet grounded in a wonderful fashion. I would recommend this book to anyone.

    Interesting, imaginative, meaningful and gently intriguing. Carey Mulligan's narration is exquisite, brilliant, Audible needs more talented narrators like Carey Mulligan, it makes all the difference. Highly recommended .

    Loved the story, lukewarm about the ending.

    The book felt exciting & compelling, but the ending felt a bit pat. It was the „nice, expected“ ending. I guess I wanted something more surprising. I enjoyed the time I spent listening to it.

    One of the best books I've ever read.

    This book is absolutely wonderful. It shook me awake. It made me cry. It reminded me why I'm happy to be alive. (And Carey Mulligan's narration is PERFECT.)

    Exquisite

    Everybody needs to read this book. It provides such a different perspective of life and death, and everything in between. Also Carey Mulligan is phenomenal in her narration, making me always wanting more. Hats off to both incredible talents.

    It is as good as they say

    This book will stay with me, and I will listen to it again, for comfort. It is so imaginative, so good at describing life as the mess that it can sometimes be. There is so much hope in this book, I wish all those who feel or has at sometime felt hopeless or helpless would get the chance to read it. So that would mean most of us I guess. The narration is brilliant, and the tone of voice fits the main character perfectly.

    I loved reading this book

    A love declaration for life itself and all its possibilities. The plot gets to the core of the main character's psyche. The atmosphere is not light hearted and I was deeply moved while listening to this book. Struggling with depression, you can still experience hope and so many different emotions. Life can still be intense. Such a wonderful book!

    Cool idea, shallowly executed

    Still inspiring idea, but often you want to face-palm over the protagonist's stubborn way of dealing in the same helpless way with different, although not too challenging situations.

    "It's a wonderful life" with multiple possibilitie

    A modern spin on "it's a wonderful life" with multiple possible lives/universes. The atmosphere and the pace of the story was a little heavier than I had anticipated by comparison with the other books by the author I have read/listened to. In the end it was an interesting storyline, however.

    Gute Sprecherin, mäßige Geschichte

    Die Storyidee ist gar nicht schlecht, leider ziemlich langatmig und vorhersehbar geschrieben. Eine gekürzte Version wäre sicher besser. umso erstaunlicher, dass die Sprecherin es schafft, abwechslungsreich und überzeugend zu sein...

    Amazingly written and thought-provoking

    There were so many parts in this book that I absolutely loved, it would be impossible to name them all. I feel like this is a book everyone will get something out of, and I really appreciated it for that! (Careful with trigger warnings, though!!) The audiobook was great as well, and I am sure to return to this book many times!

    Such a Disappointment

    Got great reviews, but it turned out to be superficial and shallow. The narrator was great, but the writer lacks style.

    A book to read when regrets are heavy

    I was amazed when I realised that the narration made me feel the fear of Nora. The book teaches without preaching. It calms the mind by making the reader want to think about uncomfortable questions. It describes the thought process that leads to depression without stigmatising the sickness.

    Great story told by a lovely voice.

    the beginning is indeed pretty dark but the ending makes it worth it. Beautiful work!
