The Midnight Library PDF Epub Summary
There is a library somewhere beyond the edge of the universe that has an unlimited number of volumes, each telling the narrative of a different world. One book narrates the tale of your current life, while the other book tells the story of the alternative life you could have had if you had made a different choice at any time in your life.
While we all speculate on how our life may have turned out, what if you had the opportunity to visit the library and find out for yourself? Is it possible that any of these alternative lives would be genuinely better?
Nora Seed is faced with this choice in Matt Haig’s fascinating hit novel The Midnight Library. 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, as she faces the possibility of changing her life for the better, pursuing a different career, undoing old breakups, and realizing her dreams of becoming a glaciologist.
This is a well-written, thought-provoking novel. Nora’s emotions are well depicted, and I was enthralled by Haig’s storytelling. While the premise is basic, it pulled me in as a reader and covered a wide range of life’s emotional events.
I spent a lot of The Midnight Library thinking about my own life and the decisions I’ve made, as well as looking forward and anticipating the endless possibilities—this is a hallmark of a gifted author.
While I admired the complexity of this story, there were instances when it took on a repetitious, even pedantic tone when an essential point was clearly evident but continued to be dwelt on—this was especially true when life lessons were discussed.
There were also attempts to make Nora’s life-jumping appear scientifically viable, using quantum physics, which I didn’t believe was required given the focus on Nora’s life and personal growth.
Overall, I had a great time reading The Midnight Library. Character development, setting, and narrative are all fascinating, while essential subjects like mental health are addressed.
Some Excerpts From The Midnight Library Book
Nineteen years before she decided to die, Nora Seed sat in the warmth of the small library at Hazeldene School in the town of Bedford. She sat at a low table staring at a chess board. ‘Nora dear, it’s natural to worry about your future,’ said the librarian, Mrs Elm, her eyes twinkling. Mrs Elm made her first move.
A knight hopping over the neat row of white pawns. ‘Of course, you’re going to be worried about the exams. But you could be anything you want to be, Nora. Think of all that possibility. It’s exciting.’ ‘Yes. I suppose it is.’ ‘A whole life in front of you.’ ‘A whole life.’ ‘You could do anything, live anywhere. Somewhere a bit less cold and wet.’ Nora pushed a pawn forward two spaces.
It was hard not to compare Mrs Elm to her mother, who treated Nora like a mistake in need of correction. For instance, when she was a baby her mother had been so worried Nora’s left ear stuck out more than her right that she’d used sticky tape to address the situation, then disguised it beneath a woollen bonnet. ‘I hate the cold and wet,’ added Mrs Elm, for emphasis. Mrs Elm had short grey hair and a kind and mildly crinkled oval face sitting pale above her turtle-green polo neck. She was quite old.
But she was also the person most on Nora’s wavelength in the entire school, and even on days when it wasn’t raining she would spend her afternoon break in the small library.
‘Coldness and wetness don’t always go together,’ Nora told her. ‘Antarctica is the driest continent on Earth. Technically, it’s a desert.’ ‘Well, that sounds up your street.’ ‘I don’t think it’s far enough away.’ ‘Well, maybe you should be an astronaut.
Travel the galaxy.’ Nora smiled. ‘The rain is even worse on other planets.’ ‘Worse than Bedfordshire?’ ‘On Venus it is pure acid.’ Mrs Elm pulled a paper tissue from her sleeve and delicately blew her nose. ‘See? With a brain like yours you can do anything.’
A blond boy Nora recognised from a couple of years below her ran past outside the rainspeckled window. Either chasing someone or being chased. Since her brother had left, she’d felt a bit unguarded out there. The library was a little shelter of civilisation. ‘Dad thinks I’ve thrown everything away. Now I’ve stopped swimming.’ ‘Well, far be it from me to say, but there is more to this world than swimming really fast.
