The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

This short novel packs one hell of a punch. Matt Haig explores the reality of depression and suicidal intent boldly in this short read.

With the focus on regrets. From the things others make us feel regret for to the decisions we wish we’d made, Haig explores how regrets effect our view of our life.


From the blurb;


‘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?’


In this book Haig gets to the heart of life and what fuels our emotional response to it. While this is not a cheerful topic Haig manages to create an inspiring, thought provoking, and ultimately happy novel that will warm the hearts of any reader and opens our eyes to the importance of living in the moment and not holding on to the past.


This is a love letter to life, and one we can all learn from.
