Nora has reached the middle of her life with a lot of regrets, mostly about the chances she never took. Through mysterious circumstances, she comes to the Midnight Library, which stocks books containing all one’s possible lives. If you open one of the books, you’ll be able to take that life out for a spin. Will Nora be able to find a version of her life where she is finally happy with her choices? This is very readable novel with a clever premise and a pleasurable mixture of humour and poignancy.
