CCR Book Club - April 27, 2021

The reading group's choice for April is "The Midnight Library" by Matt Haig. In this novel, Nora Seed, 35 years old, loses both her job and her cat. Depressed, she follows the wise counsel of a librarian who recommends books that open different doorways to alternate lives. The plot is reminiscent of the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” in which the main character sees an alternate reality in response to the question “what if…?” The New York Times states: “The narrative throughout has a slightly old-fashioned feel, like a bedtime story. It’s an absorbing but comfortable read, imaginative in the details if familiar in its outline. The invention of the library as the machinery through which different lives can be accessed is sure to please readers and has the advantage of being both magical and factual.”
