The Midnight Library- A Novel Book Review

The Midnight Library- A Novel Book Review is a great way to discover what other people have been reading. This fantasy novel was first published in September 2020 by Penguin Publishing Group and has since been abridged and broadcast in ten episodes on BBC Radio 4 in December 2020. In this review, I’ll focus on the book itself and discuss some of the plot points. Also, I’ll give you my thoughts on the upcoming film adaptation of The Middlemarch.

This novel is written by Matt Haig, a prolific and hugely successful author. He has written more than a dozen novels for children as well as seven non-fiction works. His best-selling Reasons To Stay Alive was a powerful study of depression, a disease that robs people of meaning and colour. This book is a compelling read about the nature of depressive disorders and how we can combat them with hope.

The Midnight Library- A Novel Book Review: This book is a miss. The concept is intriguing, but the author commits to a cliched plot and unoriginal theme. The back cover description of the story explains the majority of what happens. It’s an interesting idea, but not a great book. Ultimately, this is a novel about the power of books and the power of the mind to change the world.
