‘The Midnight Library’ by Matt Haig

What if you could choose another life? What if you could go back and change a decision, right a wrong or undo a past regret? Nora Seed finds herself somewhere between life and death, in a midnight library where every book contains a version of an alternate life. What if she was an Olympic swimmer, a rock star, a wife?

All of these variations are explored in Matt Haig’s mind-bending novel of alternate realities. It’s a life affirming trip into possibilities and embracing the chance to find out what could have happened if different choices were made. This is unusual but I do enjoy a time travel/alternate reality story. It raises questions about the definition of a good life, success and what makes you happy.
