The Midnight Library [9781786892737]

(5 reviews) Write a Review



Nora's life has been going from bad to worse. Then at the stroke of midnight on her last day on earth she finds herself transported to a library.

There she is given the chance to undo her regrets and try out each of the other lives she might have lived.

Which raises the ultimate question: with infinite choices, what is the best way to live?

'An uplifting, poignant novel about regret, hope and second chances' David Nicholls
'A wonderful story' Zoe Ball, BBC Radio 2


Matt Haig is the number one bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive, Notes on a Nervous Planet and seven highly acclaimed novels for adults, including How to Stop Time, The Humans and The Radleys. The Midnight Library was a BBC Two Between the Covers Book Club pick. The audiobook is read by Carey Mulligan.

Haig also writes award-winning books for children, including A Boy Called Christmas, which is being made into a feature film with an all-star cast. He has sold more than two million books in the UK and his work has been translated into over forty languages.

    Never read any Matt Haig but liked the idea of the story. I've really enjoyed it, it's an easy read and a timely reflection on mindfulness and self awareness. I finished it feeling positive and hopeful and I would recommend it. In this current dreary times it's been a good read for me. Thanks Matt

    A good easy read.

    This is one of those easy to read books, which requires little thought and is great for a bit of escapism.

    I'm a great admirer of Matt's writing ;he makes no secret of the fact he has suffered from depression in fact he has written several books on the subject, so it's no surprise he has continued the theme here .
    It's one of those what would happen if .... sort of books, someone , in this case Nora ,has a decision to make .
    A bit simplistic , with an inevitable end, not one of his best in my opinion , though many disagree!
