  • started well

    3.5 stars.....Started off well enough, was interesting and had a good story but lost something halfway. Felt a bit like a self help book and was quite preachy at times.....the ending was predictable.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • What makes a good life?

    I came across this book by accident. I was in a search for a light book to relax to and I ended up on a main page of Goodreads. I noticed there a ranking of best rated books in 2020 and this title was at the top of the list. I have never heard about the author before and “The Midnight Library” is the first book written by Matt Haig that I have read, but it is definitely not the last one. The book is about a girl, Nora, who suffers from a serious depression. On a particularly bad day she decides to commit suicide. After swallowing the pills she ends up in a place somewhere in between life and death, the midnight library, where she meets the only person that was truly kind to her, the librarian Mrs. Elm. This place is a no ordinary library. In there, all books represent different lives she could have lived if only she had made different decisions in her past. As one of the chapters says “the only way to learn is to live” and so with Mrs. Elm’s help and by trying different lives Nora realises which life is the one worth living. Matt Haig captured the depression very well. Only a person who suffered from it knows how powerful it is, how it makes you immune to happiness and how dark the days can be, so It was no surprise to find out that the author has a history of depression. I recommend this book to everyone and especially to people struggling to find positives in their life.

  • Lekker boekje, mooi verhaal

    Dit boek was verkozen tot best read van 2020 in Good Reads. Ik vond het een lekker boek, werd er wel door opgeslokt. Mooi verhaal, vlot geschreven. Mooie moraal over verbinding en geen spijt hebben van keuzes. Maar ik vond het niet het beste boek wat ik in 2020 gelezen heb. Als je die verwachting los laat, heb je een goede leeservaring.

    Thanks for your feedback!
