The #1 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.

    I really enjoyed this. Listened to the whole book in one day. The voice narrator was really talented I though. She made a great French accent for one character etc.

    I thought this book would be pretty good & it ended up being better than I thought. The perspective shifts kind of continually, which made it very entertaining & thought provoking. The narrator does a solid job moving you through this world.

    The concept was intriguing but the novel ended up a bit predictable and boring. Some part felt out of place, those overall it was fairly cohesive. It’s not the best, not the worst.
