A wonderful book that launched me into a quarter life crisis and made me incredibly jealous of Addie and her ability to have all of the time to experience new things.

“Stories are a way to preserve one's self. To be remembered. And to forget.”

“Books, she has found, are a way to live a thousand lives--or to find strength in a very long one.”

“Blink and you’re twenty-eight, and everyone else is now a mile down the road, and you’re still trying to find it, and the irony is hardly lost on you that in wanting to live, to learn, to find yourself, you’ve gotten lost.” ( )

AudioBook - DNF @ about 75%. I was excited to read this one, but fell a little flat for me. Didn't hate it. Didn't love it. Skipped ahead a few times. As one reviewer said: 'I feel like she threw everything but the kitchen sink in here genre wise.' The author checked off a lot of boxes. For those who want to know: language (F bomb on several occasions), some discussion/descriptions. Early on upon hearing Adaline's name, I kept thinking of the movie Age of Adaline (which I loved). So maybe I kept wanting to compare this book to that movie. ( )

In a moment of desperation, on the brink of being forced into marriage, a young girl pleads with the darkness to let her be free, to not be tied down by anyone. Her request is granted, but with a cruel twist. She can live forever, go where she wants, but no one will remember her after she leaves their sight, and she cannot make a mark on the world. She lives 300 years, observes history pass, wars fought, art created. One day, she walks into a bookstore and someone remembers her. This book is enthralling, and wickedly creative, weaving together past and present. It highlights the unique importance of being seen and appreciated. CW: one scene of SA, mention of SI/A ( )

This book is such a joy to read! It is my first book by Schwab and I am absolutely in love with it.
It is a story that glides through the centuries and continents. It is a love story, a historical journey, an art masterpiece and most importantly, a journey of strength and discovery.
Desperate to change her fortune, Addie La Rue prays to anyone who would listen to help her change her fate and live freely. Her prayers are answered by the darkness; and it being the darkness, things will not turn out quite as desired.
Addie finds herself living an immortal life with the caveat of being forgotten as soon as she is out of sight. Unable to leave a mark in the world, she goes on and on for centuries determined not to be bested by Luc, the embodiment of darkness.
Then, one fine day, she meets Henry, who remembers her and everything changes.
What follows is a true delight. I can’t summarise it because this book has to be read to be able to appreciate the depth of the story.
I absolutely loved the characters and am mesmerised by Luc and his relationship with Addie. So many emotions and mixed feelings!
I can only tell you to do yourself a favour and pick up this book. It is a story for the ages. ( )

This sweeping fantasy is as much a love story as it is a tribute to storytelling, art, and inspiration. Schwab’s diverse cast is beautifully rendered, and the view of human connection on offer is biting and bitter, yet introspective and sweet. This ambitious and hopeful work is a knockout.

The old gods may be great, but they are neither kind nor merciful. They are fickle, unsteady as moonlight on water, or shadows in a storm. If you insist on calling them, take heed: be careful what you ask for, be willing to pay the price. And no matter how desperate or dire, never pray to the gods that answer after dark.

Estele Magritte, 1642-1719
