      The Midnight Library clearly has a message that it wants to impress on the reader by the end of the book. Do you think the author was too heavy-handed or too subtle in delivering the message? If so, how would you have expressed it differently?

      In your opinion, what was the primary message or lesson the book is meant to express? What were some of your key takeaways from Nora’s experience?

      In your opinion, what is important for a truly fulfilling life?

      I think the book’s message runs far deeper than “life is worth living.” There are many examples throughout the book that illustrate exactly how we can trick ourselves into regretting our life choices and distancing ourselves from the people we love through guilt and unshared feelings. I think having these instances exposed can help the reader reflect on the similar regrets in their own life and how those feelings can be managed, which allows the story’s message to feel very personal to each individual reader.
