The Midnight Library is the third book by Matt Haig I have read. Well, acually it is the first I have read, (eBook) I listened to The Last Family in England and The Dead Fathers Club on eAudiobook.
The Last Family in England is told by Prince, a labrador who has to protect his human family, and in one part a retelling of parts of Henry IV Part One. This was a choice from an online bookclub I joined during Lockdown. I had heard of Matt Haig and read some reviews on his work, so was looking forward to listening to the book. You know how it is going to end from the begining, but it is even worse than I was expecting. Unfortunatley, I did not enjoy it and I think if I was reading it I wouldn't have finished it, far to depressing.
After reporting back to the Bookclub, a couple of them recommended The Midnight Library as a much better read. I must say I agree. Maybe it was because I did read the book (as an eBook) rather than listen to it, as I had the other two. This one is about Nora, who thinks she has nothing to live for and decides she wants to die. In between life and death she ends up in The Midnight Library. She has lots of regrets about her life and the opportunity arises that she can see what her life could have been like if she had made other decisions.
