Publisher’s Summary

In the vein of The Time Traveler’s Wife and Life After Life, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is New York Times best-selling author V. E. Schwab’s genre-defying tour de force.

When Addie La Rue makes a pact with the devil, she trades her soul for immortality. But there’s always a price – the devil takes away her place in the world, cursing her to be forgotten by everyone. Addie flees her tiny home town in 18th-century France, beginning a journey that takes her across the world, learning to live a life where no one remembers her and everything she owns is lost and broken. Existing only as a muse, she learns to fall in love anew every single day. Until one day, in a second-hand bookshop in Manhattan, Addie meets someone who remembers her. Suddenly thrust back into a real, normal life, Addie realises she can’t escape her fate forever.

    Nice idea, average execution

    One of the characters is 300 years old and yet we are expected to believe that she is happy to hook up with someone who is, what, 22? This is at the heart of my problems with this book – I was never remotely convinced by the characters. 300 years old and still behaving the same as she did when she was a teenager? The plot was okay and the ending was better than it could have been, but I always felt at a critical distance from everyone in the story. The narration was fine as long as you don’t mind American accents.

    Well written mediocre story

    If you like Emily in Paris this is the book for you. This book feels like it was only written for one audience in mind RWL. I found myself wondering what was the point of this story? Nothing really happened and no one made progress and there are a lot of questionable life choices. Everyone was unlikeable expect the narrator.
    The author took 10 years the write this book and I can see it is quite dated and feel like it belongs in the early 2010s when being an NLOG (not like other girls) was still cool. If you like stories with no real purpose but to idealise the Main Character this is the book for you.
