Review: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by VE Schwab


Title: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

Author: VE Schwab

A Life No One Will Remember. A Story You Will Never Forget.

France, 1714: in a moment of desperation, a young woman makes a Faustian bargain to live forever and is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets.

Thus begins the extraordinary life of Addie LaRue, and a dazzling adventure that will play out across centuries and continents, across history and art, as a young woman learns how far she will go to leave her mark on the world.

But everything changes when, after nearly 300 years, Addie stumbles across a young man in a hidden bookstore and he remembers her name.

Just beautiful.
Utterly beautiful

Addie’s life is basically forfeit after a ‘bad deal’ so she wanders, wanders for years with no one remembering who she is……..until 13 March 2014 and 3 words rock her world.

โ€œI remember you.โ€

I loved Addie, her stubbornness, her zest for life, how she lives and how she loves.

I don’t want to say too much else because you need to experience the glorious that is this book but I will say at one point my jaw hit the floor with the revelation and the ending I was very surprised at…but I thoroughly enjoyed it!
