'Between life and death there is a library, and within that library, the shelves go on forever. Every book provides a chance to try another life you could have lived. To see how things would be if you had made other choices... Would you have done anything different, if you had the chance to undo your regrets?' 

A dazzling novel about all the choices that go into a life well lived, from the internationally bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive and How To Stop Time.

Somewhere out beyond the edge of the universe there is a library that contains an infinite number of books, each one the story of another reality. One tells the story of your life as it is, along with another book for the other life you could have lived if you had made a different choice at any point in your life. While we all wonder how our lives might have been, what if you had the chance to go to the library and see for yourself? Would any of these other lives truly be better?

In The Midnight Library, Matt Haig's enchanting novel, Nora Seed finds herself faced with this decision. Faced with the possibility of changing her life for a new one, following a different career, undoing old breakups, realizing her dreams of becoming a glaciologist; 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.

“You don't have to understand life. You just have to live it.”

When you read certain books, you feel as if the author has created this book, just for you. It feels as if, the words were made using the fragments of your thoughts, insecurities and deepest fears. I think Matt Haig must have known me, or at least, he must have had a friend who has the same type of problems as me. (I know that's farfetched, but this rings so true for me.) Books always become special when you can identify with the characters, and Nora Seed, the protagonist of this book was a person I could relate to so well.
Am I depressed like her? No. Am I 35, like her? Certainly not! But just like her, my life is also clouded with regrets. Every night, I used to lose my sleep, thinking about the things that I never did, and the ones I would never have the chance to do again. She's just so tired of life, that she hates herself. I too, had hated myself months back, and my days were all so gray, that it was impossible to see the light shining outside.
That being said, and the importance of this book, pointed out, let's talk about the plot.

So, what's this book about?

Nora Seed is an estranged woman. She is highly depressed, and believes that no one loves her and she has let everyone down, in her family. Everywhere she looks, she only sees the things that she never has. When Voltaire, her only companion and pet cat, dies, she is convinced that she can't even take care of a cat. She decides to end her life by swallowing antidepressants.
But does she find herself in hell or heaven? No, instead she has landed on a library, were she is met by her former school librarian, Mrs. Elm. The shelves are lined with books, each holding a possibility of a different life. A life that she didn't get to live. A second chance. A chance to right all the wrongs in her life. She can erase her regrets from the huge book aptly titled, 'The Book Of Regrets.'
Nora enters so many lives, she lives as a rock star, a glaciologist, a champion swimmer. But soon, she realizes that nothing makes her happy. But isn't that she had wanted? To be happy? Isn't that we all want at the end of the day? The heart of Haig's novel lies in the fact that we often miss out on the little things of our life. These things that we fail to appreciate, are the ones that ultimately bring us joy. Just like a pawn in chess, it may seem insignificant, but when the pawn crosses over to the other side, it becomes queen. Most people forget that.

Remember that 'Life isn't perfect, but it has perfect moments.'

Haig's novel is a strong look on mental health, and one of the best books of the year.

Between Life & Death there is a library - The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
This is the basic plot of the book. A novel which appeals to the spiritual as well as scientific knowledge :
Nineteen years before she decided to die, Nora seed sat in the warmth of a small school library. The book starts off with a pretty depressive storyline but proceeds further just as the French philosopher Sartre once said, Life begins on the other side of despair. Nora seed is a woman full of regrets, regrets that consume her mind on a daily basis. But things are about to change…

As Nora Seed reaches the Midnight library, she is given a lifetime opportunity. The opportunity of possibilities. Within the library there are infinite number of possibilities of how her life could have been.   

Rating - 5 Stars indeed !

once you finish reading this book, you get a feeling of lightness, all the heaviness that got accumulated due to the regrets of the supposed 'bad' decisions you had taken in the past will die down once you explore this book's fictional world. after getting acquainted with the Midnight Library, I realized that 'the moment you are living right now is just a reflection of your decision to live this moment hence regretting about it is pointless-therefore just live the moment as you wished few seconds/minutes/hours/days whatever time it is since you decided.

When I can pick a million other books in library I ended up on this book and I am grateful for it. Before reading this book I was not in great state after I read it in one sitting I am content now.
The best way to live is just by living it. This book would be great choice for positivity.
