The 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.

Matt Haig - The Midnight Library Book Reviews

Midnight LibraryTotal waste of $$ and time. !!!! Linda.Score: 1/5

The midnight libraryA great reminder of why we should stick around because we don’t know how it ends. Some of its luck or not but it all comes down to an attitude refresh and this book will hopefully give you one..Score: 5/5

A bit dull.This story is mostly a series of anecdotes essentially, making it hard to keep up with and even care about any of the MANY characters introduced, seeing as they came and went with each chapter. I see the hopeful message trying to be portrayed here (how could I not when it’s literally written out for you very clearly, no thinking involved), but I wouldn’t recommend this book..Score: 2/5

Good readI enjoyed reading this book. I feel more appreciative of life after reading this..Score: 5/5

Just. Read. This. Book.It’s a masterpiece. It’s beautiful. It’s thought provoking. It’s a must read for any teenage struggling with mental health issues and it’s a must read for parents. It’s a must read for anyone really who just wonders if they’re in the right place at the right time making the right choices. Couldn’t put it down..Score: 5/5

Great read!I really enjoyed this!.Score: 5/5

Emotional and Life-changingThis book provides a much needed change in perspective on life and living, as well as death and dying. Top notch read..Score: 5/5

Tend Your Seed GardenA very enjoyable read. Makes you think about life in in terms of how you see it as opposed to what you see. I was going to give it four stars but changed it to five because this book will stay with me. Nora Seed is planted in us all - will we nurture that seed to see it grow? I will..Score: 5/5

GreatThe book was well written and ignited a passion in quantum physics.Score: 5/5

Wow!I loved this book and will be rereading it many times!.Score: 5/5

Thank youFor opening up my imagination. I love books like these!.Score: 4/5

Love vs HateI’m an optimist in life and I was bedeviled by Nora’s behavior when she just couldn’t-get over herself and brought unhappiness to those around her. She had so much to be joyful about but her explorations into other Nora lives was the only way she could accept and understand herself. I found some of her understanding & discovery profound and lights turned on for me!.Score: 4/5

Interesting readAn interesting read. It was challenging to follow the various “lives” of the the main character, Nora. However, The more the story unfolds, you can appreciate the storyline and the message of the book..Score: 4/5

This book was phenomenalI think it might have saved my life. I was prepared to die at the same time as I was reading the last few chapters. When I got to nora’s realization and final decision...I couldn’t stop crying because it echoed so closely to my life..Score: 5/5

A Beautiful JourneyI loved this book… thinking of all the possible outcomes and directions my life could have gone. But, I did wonderful things with my life that I am proud of. And, it’s not over yet!! All the possibilities are endless because the future has not been written yet! Very inspiring book!.Score: 5/5

A pop self-help book in thin disguise.A book in which little actually happens, but the opportunity to put in terse little bromides about life and its value keep popping up..Score: 2/5

A Terrific Fantasy, With A Physics ClassI liked this book very much. It’s a wonderful fantasy grounded in physics. It’s a story that speaks to everyone, about the choices we make, and the impact our choices make not only on our own lives, but the lives of everyone around us..Score: 4/5

Clever, smart read.Thought-provoking, profound in fact, yet accessible. What clever, smart read this is. Bravo..Score: 5/5

Great StoryFascinating!!!.Score: 5/5

One of my favorite books of all time now!Will be purchasing a physical copy and reading many times again! A thought opener veiled in a riveting story of someone we can all connect with..Score: 5/5

Loved it!I loved everything about this book. It would be a great movie too if they end up making one!.Score: 5/5

AmazingYo, this a nice piece. Gotta read this!.Score: 5/5

Must readSensationally deep and uplifting. Highly recommend.Score: 5/5

Dopamine inducing readThis book was quite enjoyable, especially on a hot summer day. It gave me a reminder to see the possibility in my own life. The big things and smaller things, and to be supportive of myself and the people I love in my life. I especially enjoyed the way the author looked into mental illness through this book, with empathy and honesty rather than a fixation on the problems it spurs. Reading about Nora’s struggles and triumphs made me feel so emotional. A great and uplifting read!.Score: 5/5

Eye OpeningThis book takes a very serious subject and uses it to tell a deep and personal story that millions of people can relate to. It delves into characters and subject matter that feel very real while also having the plot revolve around a fantastical element. I would recommend this book to anyone, especially someone that needs a good book on a rainy day..Score: 5/5

Midnight libraryTruly exceptional… with all the turmoil happening now in our country and beyond, this book has giving me a place to rest my thoughts and appreciate what a magnificent life I lead…to be grateful every day, reflect on the possibilities and remember to live in the moment…truly!!.Score: 5/5

WowNo words, just beautiful and an important reminder for all of us to live fully and without regrets..Score: 5/5

A calmness evolved.The book begins and I’m very concerned about Nora and I feel that during most of the book. And I can relate to much ofd this book. The messages are appropriate for any aged reader. Wish I was in my 20s or 30s!.Score: 5/5

Thought provokingI loved this book!.Score: 5/5

Deeply touched and movedI’m so deeply touched and moved by this amazingly beautiful novel. Never underestimate the importance of small things. It is small only because you think what you look at is small, however if you can really see it, it’s indeed a matter of life and death. It’s about perspective. Your regrets only come from the perspective you have. And in fact you have no idea how it’s going to end at all. You don’t have to know either, you don’t have to understand life, you just have to live it. And as you live, you learn. Great great novel! Love love love!.Score: 5/5

Hard to read, but in the very best way.For those of us that have reached a point in our lives where we are deeply questioning it all… this book gives us permission to let go of regrets and reminds us that so much of our life is yet to be written. We are far more powerful and impactful than we give ourselves credit for. The beautiful evolution of Nora’s “knowing” and embracing her one beautiful life was transformative..Score: 5/5

Lives and LessonsThis book puts forth a fascinating premise. The main character learns a lot about life in a most unusual way and therefore ,we as the reader learn a lot too..Score: 5/5

Lovely story, makes you thinkI happen to be at a stage where navel-gazing is a hobby not uncommon to those in my circumstance. This book helped snapped me out of it, by reminding me that one doesn’t get do-overs. The story is unique and charming, and the characters compelling enough to engage you for a fast read..Score: 5/5

Good read!This book had an intriguing premise and I found it quite thought provoking.
