My husband bought me The Midnight Library by Matt Haig for Christmas.  It’s quite a different book to anything I’ve read before although I did find similarities to some of Paulo Coelho’s work.  It’s a pleasant, easy read but with lots of hidden messages.

The story’s main character is a girl called Nora.  Nora wants to die.  Her life is empty and full of regrets.  She takes an overdose after her cat dies, the final straw in a life of despair.  She is then caught in a ‘between life and death’ limbo land, aka, The Midnight Library.  Here she is given the opportunity to look at her book of life’s regrets and to live out many of them, taking the alternative route.  They rarely turn out to be what she expected.

I would definitely recommend this book.  It’s entertaining and thought provoking.  A really enjoyable read that stays with you long after you have read the final chapter.

It would appear that the old adage, ‘Life is what you make it’, is really true and Gratitude is where it’s at.

“It is quite a revelation to discover that the place you wanted to escape to is the exact same place you escaped from. That the prison wasn’t the place but the perception.” Matt Haig, The Midnight Library.
