An instant New York Times bestseller
Winner of the Goodreads Choice Award for Fiction
A GOOD MORNING AMERICA Book Club Pick!

One of the LibraryReads 2020 Voter Favorites
Independent (London) One of Ten Best Books of the Year

Included in best-of-year and year-end roundups by The Washington Post, Christian Science Monitor, New York Public Library, Amazon, Boston Globe, PureWow, St. Louis Public Radio, She Reads, Lit Hub, The Mary Sue, and more

"Whimsical." --Washington Post, named one of the 15 Feel-Good Books Guaranteed to Lift Your Spirits

An absorbing but comfortable read...a vision of limitless possibility, of new roads taken, of new lives lived, of a whole different world available to us somehow, somewhere, might be exactly what's wanted in these troubled and troubling times." --The New York Times

"Charming...a celebration of the ordinary: ordinary revelations, ordinary people, and the infinity of worlds seeded in ordinary choices." --The Guardian

"A brilliant premise and great fun." --Daily Mail

I can't describe how much his work means to me. So necessary...[Matt Haig is] the king of empathy. --Jameela Jamil, actor and host of I Weigh with Jameela Jamil

"A beautiful fable, an It's a Wonderful Life for the modern age - impossibly timely when we are all stuck in a world we wish could be different." --Jodi Picoult, author of My Sister's Keeper

"This brainy, captivating pleasure read feels like what you might get if TV's The Good Place collided with Where'd You Go, Bernadette." --People

"Thanks to the storytelling chops of writer Matt Haig, The Midnight Library is an engaging read, full of gentle insights and soothing wisdom... This is a book about shedding regret by gaining perspective. It's full of quirky plot lines, with glimpses of opportunities and potential in unexpected places and people." --Psychology Today

"A charming book." --Dolly Parton, award-winning singer-songwriter

"Although I don't read fiction as much as I used to--because I'm always writing fiction--during these sad and difficult days in 2020 I broke that rule because I needed to ­escape into other people's fictional worlds. One of my favorite books of the year was The Midnight Library by Matt Haig, a powerful and uplifting story about regrets and the choices we make."--Alice Hoffman, author of Magic Lessons and Practical Magic

"Clever, emotional and thought-inspiring." --Jenny Colgan, author of
The Bookshop on the Corner

"Amazing and utterly beautiful, The Midnight Library is everything you'd expect from the genius storyteller who is Matt Haig." --Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep

"Nora's life is burdened by regrets. Then she stumbles on a library with books that enable her to test out the lives she could have led, including as a glaciologist, Olympic swimmer, rock star, and more. Her discoveries ultimately prove life-affirming in Matt Haig's dazzling fantasy." --Christian Science Monitor

"Would we really make better choices if we could step back in time? Matt Haig's thought-provoking, uplifting new book,
The Midnight Library discusses just that, exploring our relationship with regret and what really makes a perfect life." --Harper's Bazaar (UK)

"British author Matt Haig is beloved in his home country, and he's a champion of mental health, which makes him a great person to follow on Twitter. He's best known for the novel How to Stop Time, but he has a new novel just out on September 29 called The Midnight Library, which sounds equally intriguing. In this library, Nora Seed finds endless books which contain different versions of the life she could have lived. This is a must-read for those of us given to endless what ifs." --BookRiot

"Haig is one of the most inspirational popular writers on mental health of our age and, in his latest novel, he has taken a clever, engaging concept and created a heart-warming story that offers wisdom in the same deceptively simple way as Mitch Albom's best tales." --Independent (UK)

Just beautiful . . . Such a gorgeous, gorgeous book." --Fearne Cotton, host of the BBC Radio 1 Chart Show

A highly original, thought-provoking novel... -- Independent (London)

[The Midnight Library] will follow in the bestselling footsteps of Haig's earlier books . . . Part Sliding Doors, part-philosophical quest, this is a moving novel with a powerful mental health message at its heart." --Alice O'Keeffe, The Bookseller

"Haig's latest (after the nonfiction collection Notes on a Nervous Planet, 2019) is a stunning contemporary story that explores the choices that make up a life, and the regrets that can stifle it. A compelling novel that will resonate with readers." --Booklist (starred review)

"Charming...[Matt Haig] will reward readers who take this book off the shelf." --Publisher's Weekly

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I’ve read in a long time!
By MissyT on 30 August 2021
I connected with the storyline so much, perhaps being in my late 30s and at a point in my own life where it’s easy wonder about life decisions, when thoughts of what’s ifs, should haves or ‘who knows what might have happened’ continually linger. But it’s true - the grass isn’t always greener!

I love the premise of this story and the style of writing hooked me right in from page 1. Easy to read, and kept me guessing and wondering where the story might go.

Great lessons to learn here - key messages being, no matter what we choose to do in life, happiness isn’t a complete end state. It’s all the little things - the ups/downs of life that make up a complete life. The love we give and receive, with an open heart and change of perspective. How all of our actions will always have a reaction but there’s comfort in the fact that, where we are is okay, it will never be perfect and you have the power to make it what you want. Don’t take life for granted, relationships included. Definitely a powerful read and look inside the struggle of loneliness, connection and mental health. Something I think, the world can definitely relate to.

Can’t wait to see how they turn this one into a movie. You can see it all play out in your head. Great escape.

5 out of 5! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changing. Powerful. Amazing. Beautiful. Uplifting. A must read.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 August 2020
I don't think I can do this book/review enough justice but I'm going to give it my best shot... If there is one book I would urge you and shout at you to buy it would be this on. Go do it. Treat yourself You will not regret it. I promise. This is going straight into my top twenty of the year reads. I've awarded it five stars and I'd award more if I could! How do I start?

I must admit it's not what I expected at all. But I feel it was just what I needed right now honestly. This book is going to be huge. This book for me was amazing, outstanding, life changing, powerful and thought provoking. Honestly have you ever felt so low you wanted to die? Then this book is for you. It will change your whole perspective on life. It has for me. It's taught me A LOT of life lessons and how I see my life. I actually have fallen in love with this book and I don't say that lightly.

I don't want to ruin this for anyone but if you could view every possible outcome of your life would you? Would you ever be happy? Just wow. It's taught me to open my eyes, appreciate what I have not what I want. Life is life. Life is beautiful. I loved it all. I devoured it in a day. Beautifully told. An easy read for me done in a day but one I felt I NEEDED to read right at this moment in my life. Now this is my review others may feel differently about this book and some may hate it. But I cant explain how much I loved, enjoyed and needed this book. One I can always go back too when I'm feeling low. Uplifting.

So thank you Matt. Absolutely brilliant. Grateful. It's really made me think and I miss it already. Perfection.
