Book Review: “The Midnight Library” by Matt Haig

Nora believes she is living a miserable life where nothing goes right. She almost got married, almost was in a successful band, almost studied glaciers and almost went on a trip to Australia with her best friend. Now, sitting lonely and depressed in a flat in a small English town, full with regrets, Nora decides she can‘t live like this anymore and decides to die. After taking an overdose of sleeping pills, she wakes up in the middle of the Midnight library where her former school librarian Mrs. Elm greets her and tells her that each book in the library is a life that she could have lived. Now she gets the chance to live them and see what her so called root life could be.
