REVIEW:-"I did really enjoy this book and thought I'd guessed the likely moral/ending of the story early on. However I thought it a bit unfair that Nora was expected to enter and live different versions of her life without any background information to go on. I applauded Nora for being able to jump in and improvise nevertheless. Not a thing I'd be able to do I fear. I found the following passage very profound "and we spend so much time wishing our lives were different, comparing ourselves to other people and to other versions of ourselves, when really most lives contain degrees of good and degrees of bad".
As the story went on I found it hard to believe that Nora would actually want to try out so many different lives necessitating her telling many lies and bluff her way through things, which must have been very stressful. Thinking about multi-universes and everyone having an infinitesimal amount of lives occurring simultaneously was very confusing and scary to me and I'm nor at all keen on the idea of my other selves blithely co-existing with (and without) me. It all made me feel very emotional at times. I enjoyed all the events at the Midnight Library and the fact that the Librarian was so kind to Nora. Matt Haig is certainly very interested in time-related subjects and the book certainly wasn't boring."
Reserved until I find another good home for the book.
