Vivien 🐝 - Beautiful Thoughts
Learned that a want is rather a lack.
Soonerlady00 - Perfect for Those Who Despair
While this book lacks the belief in a High Power, the vision of ridding oneself of regrets emanates loudly in the protagonists experiences. Easy read.
2747493 - A must read
Really insightful and well-written!
devry23 - Great Read!
First book I’ve read this year and I finished it so quickly. It’s beautiful!
meggdogg - So good!
This was a lovely book. Entertaining and inspiring. I wish I could read it again for the first time.
a.struble - Read it now!
Such a great thought provoking book. Just amazing I finished it feeling a renewed sense of life and all that it has to offer. Such a fun story!
LayraA - Great read
Sleep deprived with a newborn, I still managed to read “just one more chapter” night after night. A beautiful book full of wisdom and honesty.
danielleem412 - Heartwarming
I loved this book! Great concept and creatively written. Makes you really think!
sim1kcs - The Midnight Library
Loved this book, so creative!
real_megbrady - Interesting premise
Interesting premise. Not the best writing style, and a bit cheesy. However, kept my attention. Worth a read if you’re looking for something distracting and like the idea of the novel.
TheMadPlaiter - Cute and heartwarming
Creative tale about life. Short and easy read, also easily holds your attention.
Nattiecole - Fascinating
I really enjoyed the book! It was an easy read. It makes you think all aspects into your own life.
Sass-Shae - Regrets halt progress
This book was something I needed at this point in my life. Other reviews said it was uplifting and I suppose that’s true, but mainly it’s eye-opening. It’s a reminder that the life you’re living is also skewed by the life of yesterday- you’re obsessing over. So, stop obsessing over what’s done if you can. Presence. Being present matters.
Klynnstks - SO GOOD!
I finished this in two days! I loved this book! Highly recommend. It makes you think about life and “mistake” and “regrets” in a simple and beautiful way. 10/10
KayC0508 - Touched
I am deeply touched by this book. It was a random selection but I now see God aligned it.
brennansgranmom - I have founded my new favorite fiction author
The Midnight Library read as easy as a conversation. I enjoyed the premise although deeper characters would have been an improvement. They had a “one dimensional” sort of feel to them. Well written and I’m looking forward to reading more from Mr. Haig.
RLOMD - Feel good
This is a feel good book and just what I needed right now. It is hopeful. This book could be made into a movie easily.
TheNurseWhoReads - Some great phrases, good story
I enjoyed this book. There were some noteworthy paragraphs and sentences I could apply to my life Almost something you could frame and Put on the wall. I think at times applying to all of us.
Thought provoking story, maybe it’s just my present time Of life. I enjoyed the perspective.
tesberry - Great read
Such a great read! I got consumed in it & it makes you think of life in a different life!
chip1195 - Midnight Library
I really liked this book! It put life into perspective for me. Very inspiring.
srpalmore - 10/10
I used to enjoy reading so much but it has been YEARS since I last picked up a book. I’ve recently gone threw a bout of depression, and just last week during one of my “quiet” moments I felt the need to try to start again. I spent an hour searching for the perfect book, one that I hoped we keep my interest, and this without a doubt hit it out of the park. It makes you really think about your life, and puts it into a perception that you’ve probably never seen it in before. 10/10, 5 stars, I’m recommending to everyone.
PainterSam - Catches you from the start
This book catches you from the start. It gets emotionally real right away. You’re immediately at the point when you think— Oh this might be too deep and too sad, but the funny and witty character it grabs you. I loved this unexpected journey.
sheatethecookie - Beautiful beautiful and needed during these times.
This book echoed so many familiar feelings inside of me. It gave me so much hope and I just enjoyed it so much.
rrtthh - Pretty good
Starts out a little predictable but ends with a good message—-Live in the moment.
Nicholas A. Kelly - Thoughtful, adventurous, and humble
Great read, especially if feeling down or unsure about the direction you chose in life. You are exactly where you are supposed to be.
Fastprof - A page turner
Such a well done alternate universe/infinite possibilities novel. It is chock-full of dilemmas and resolutions. I loved it.
Andersson 🤔 - Great Read!
Wow incredible book. I was skeptical from the description, but ultimately decided to try it and it’s now one of my favorite books!
Alfreda G - Beautiful Book
I loved this book. It is so refreshingly different. I have seen criticisms that say anyone could have written it and that it’s predictable. I so disagree. The whole premise of the book is that no one is just anyone. And predictability can be the best thing life has to offer. This book is not only entertaining but chock full of “life-isms” that are nothing short of profound. I found myself so drawn to this book just to find out where Nora ends up next. I have kind of become a “Nora” due to the pandemic and this book helped take me out if that for a time. This is a story written by a true storyteller. Matt Haig has spent some serious time thinking of the possibilities and all I can say is “wow”.
AJG92 - Top 5 books I’ve read
This book is amazing. I couldn’t put it down and managed to finish it in 3 days. A great read about life and the many lessons and choices we have.
STP7771437 - Great Book!
Absolutely Uplifting! I needed this ♥️
Starrmonkeh - poorly executed
very exciting premise with a strong beginning but everything that followed was poorly executed — juvenile writing style, plot gets repetitive, the “lessons” are obvious
Tanisha Fisher - 100000/10
One of the best books I’ve ever read.
KAte01776 - Have regrets in life? Wish you could go back?
This book is very good! I am going to read it again! It tackles that age-old question- “What if I had made different decisions in my life?!” Highly recommend!
Balletandbooks - Simply Wonderful
One of the best books I’ve read in a long time. It has changed the way I look at life in a wonderful way. Uplifting, adventurous, real and fun.
crypticcal - So insightful
My top recommendation for a feel good read in a hard time, the Midnight Library will surely change your perspective and make you want to, “do better”
KyliieeTuii - to get through COVID
great read for when you’re feeling a little lost, a little hopeless, and contemplating all of your life choices. brings you back to reality when you feel as far away from life as you can get, and reminds you that each day holds immense potential.
Emery10 - The Midnight Library
The true fiction in this novel is that clinical depression can be overcome through a near death experience.
12345qwertfdsa - Very enjoyable
Very enjoyable derivative of “It’s a Wonderful Life” (which is derivative of “A Christmas Carol”).
AlSwasho - Best book I’ve read in awhile!
Very thought provoking! I very much enjoyed this book
swrara - Midnight library
Anyone could have written this. Skip it.
juliusa - Juvenile
Juvenile. Poorly written. Meh. Phony philosophy. Stay away.
BizzarroWorld - Love love love
Relatable and inspiring. Deals with life’s questions we all share at some point and leaves you with a renewed sense of peace and excitement. “Don’t have to understand life - just live it”
LoopyLooTwo - This book will give you direction.
Our lives are utter chaos right now (and, frankly, always). This book makes them make sense.
Harlem Hutch - Great Book
“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
Shelldeenee - AWESOME read!!
Fantastic writing that hooked me from the beginning and I couldn’t put down! The infinite possibilities absolutely fascinated me
janimal0501 - Must Read
Loved every single page. Perfect book to help you remember what is important in these trying times!
the steady reader - Intriguing and thought provoking. A quick read with many twists and turns.
Liked the creative look into the possibility of parallel universes. We all ask ourselves the question “what if...?”
fultzyyyy - Amazing!
Love love love this book!! It was our book of the month for Book Club and I could not put it down. I love the twists and turns, on top of the deep life lessons it teaches along the way. It’s brilliant. Simply brilliant.
PaulaSev - Loved this book, I loved the realizations made while exploring many different paths.
This book provided a very real perspective for whether one is struggling with where they are in their lives or not.

A solidly entertaining book. It does begin to feel a bit repetitive, but it’s worth it.

I am reading it again.
UberGinger - Beautiful life changing book
This was by far the best book I have read a very long time. I am a different person because of my decision to read this amazing story.
highlander198 - Great read
Just makes you stop and reflect; have gratitude and perspective. Thoughtful and thought provoking. Loved it. Thank you🙏🏼
grace26785 - I Adore Nora
Absolutely beautiful. Uplifting, profound, and heartfelt. A stunning portrait of what it’s like to live with mental illness and fall into the depths of despair—and to climb out of them too. I am alive, indeed!
Amedina713 - 👍🏼👏🏼
A true masterpiece that gets the mind, body, and soul to drift into your own personal midnight library. I laughed, smiled, worried, and cried through out the entire book. In a way this book popped up on me at the start of a rough season in my life and not only had me think of the many possibilities of my own midnight library but brought me a bit of peace in a frustrating season, I pray comes to an end soon......
“you don’t have to understand life, you just have to live it”
I AM ALIVE
Molly!5663 - Captures the many conflicts of being human
Loved this story about the struggle of living your own life as is through Nora. The wanting more or different holds us all back. Easy read with lots of connection.
abdkeiuqvd - Predictable
The story line was mapped out for you within the first 30 pages. In the beginning the author does a great job to hook you in. As I continued reading further and further though it became more and more predictable. Like when you write an essay and give your main supporting facts in your introduction paragraph - this author gave all the story line highlights that he was going to take you through before you even read the rest of the book. The ending was nearly exactly what I thought it would be. Additionally the ending lacked real life experience and expectation of those suffering through what the main character went through.
stardustandbooks - Just amazing
I don’t usually write reviews but I just had to with this. This book was everything I could’ve wanted and more. It’s a beautifully written story and incredibly touching. I feel as though it’s given me a new perspective on life and it’s probably one of my favorite books ever now. I can see myself rereading it many times throughout my life. I would definitely recommend it!
Whitmben - Lovely
Such a lovely heartwarming tale at a time when it’s most needed 🤍
Casterwill_ - Beautiful story!
Really makes you think about what’s really important!
Joanou - Regret...
It’s nice. Sweet. Has interesting observations about regret and a life not lived. But is also somewhat episodic and runs out of steam. A good light read.
Brunetta4u - No regrets
Such a wonderfully hopeful book in these downtrodden times. From life lessons and philosophical phrases to travel tips...you will learn so much from this book.
LeighHugs - Beautiful
For anyone who has ever struggled with despair or regret, or who is trying to understand the inner world of someone who is, and how you might help them - this book is for you.
EldridgeJ - Book club book
If you’re looking for a light read with a heavy subject matter for your next book club book then this is it.
A story told within one book; you will find yourself pondering the meaning of your relationships in your life and their impact or importance relative to your own value.
While you may be able to guess early on how a story like this will turn out, it’s definitely about the journey rather than the ending.
gdub2019 - It’s A Wonderful Life For The Modern Age
Great read for the holidays. Reminds you life has to be lived, no matter the obstacles you face.
DJH1950 - Great Read!!
Brilliantly imagined and written. An incredible journey of discovery about oneself.
Get the Houston Opera Company recording instead - A little disappointing
Strong start with very accurate description of how disappointing one’s life can become. And interesting fantasy solution. However, I feel that the metaphor went on for too long and had no resolution. No definite observations on the reality of living one life with perspective, or without regrets, especially for lonely singular lives that some of us find inescapable. Just sayin....
RenellaG - Outstanding! 🤩
Absolutely loved this book! Probably the best book I’ve read this year!
Senam Grace - Loved ❤️
I loved this book, especially at this time of the year when everything seems somehow dark and uncertain. The storyline is easy to follow, and yet full of philosophical lines worth pondering about further. I will surely pick this again, and i highly recommend it to anyone like me, who needs a reason or reasons to keep moving and living. And to anyone who is not sure where the next foot may lead them to. This is indeed a great read, and worth the investment of time and money.
Jamiam987 - Amazing
Absolutely loved it. I was sad reading the last page- I didn’t want this book to end......
Wildfirejv - Exceptional!
What an exceptional book! Great characters, brilliant plot, a real page turner!
mack_oliviaaaa - Draws you in
Originally I wasn’t sure what to think of this book, I read a good 70 pages and was intrigued. I came back after about two weeks and finished it in two days, it really makes you contemplate both life after death and what makes living so amazing and magical, especially considering the insignificance of human existence compared to the universe. I highly recommend some quiet and relaxing music in the background to sink into this eye opening read.
GiuliaNYC - Farfetched
It felt like the type of story the primitive man came up with to use a mythology to explain the origin of the world - conveniently made up to explain what happens at the point of death but purely wishful thinking masquerading as tied to real possibility and quantum physics, and kind of sophomoric in the imagined scenarios.
Brouville - Magnificent.
Absolutely amazing. Inspiring, revitalizing, touching and endlessly insightful. I’m sure I will think of it often and read it again when times get tough. Thank you, Matt Haig. Thank you so much.
