Book Review / The Invisible Life of Addie Larue by V E 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.

I have seen this book everywhere.  I usually don't cave into hyped books unless it is a book in a series that I am already invested and love, but this one just sounded really interested.  Someone who cannot die and after you meet her and leave her presence you will forget her.  Sounded amazing.

 And I was right...  This book was amazing.  Not only do you have the history of when she was made 'immortal' back in 1714 but you also see her through the years up to present day.  You see her struggle to get used to what is happening to her and then see her how she has adapted to get on with it.  Addie Larue is not a weak character either.  She knows how to play a game and she plays this one very well, right until the very end of the story.  You also have an element of romance in this book which although, for me, was a side story in this novel I still enjoyed it

Such a wonderful novel.  I will certainly be picking up more form this author at some point in the future!
