“Between life and death, there is a library,’ she said.

“And within that library, the shelves go on forever. 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……

The Midnight Library is one masterpiece and a pure work of art in the genre of Fiction.

Never have I ever read such a book that describes the human conditions with so much compassion and empathy.

The book revolves around the protagonist, Nora Seed, who has undeniably lost all the hopes in life and regrets possibly every single thing she has done in life. Miserable Nora, when decides to die, is given another chance to turn all her life decisions, that she regretted, around for the good, one book at a time!

@Matt Haig has not only put across a strong message about life but the endless possibilities it brings with us, that we usually take for granted.

The story beautifully captivates the essence of every person on the face of earth, in the form of protagonist and keeps you gripped from beginning to the end. With a simple yet significant concept, this book will encourage you to introspect on your own life and reflect on to what brings in the most fulfilment for you.

Special appreciation and mention of the narration must be done. The way author has tied all the events and story together makes it an unputdownable read.

The more you describe the book, the more you get into the awe of how beautifully someone could describe something. I know the review seems to be a total appreciation, but this book deserves to be in one. Hands-down, it makes it to my favorites! Read it, and you will know it for yourself.

A 100% recommendation for everyone above the age of 13. It’s one of those books, that you could live with, even if left alone on an Island!

“I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life.”
