I was pretty underwhelmed by this book. The synopsis was right up my alley, but I found myself skimming through a lot of it. The ending seemed kind of predictable, as well.

I might have enjoyed this story more had I read Reasons to Stay Alive. As it was, the sequential exploration of different lives that Nora Seed (the main character) sampled while existing in a liminal space was clunky and unsatisfying.

For my enjoyment, I disliked that Haig dropped his suicidal, unhappy character, smack dab as she was when she tried to commit suicide, into these alternate realities. She was able to choose different choice of 'what ifs' from her past life events. Of course she'd flounder around and not fit in or have a clue how that life had developed.

The book's narrative journey went from life to life until the not-so-surprising ending. The dénouement was sparse on details and would have been a more positive story about Nora's life had the story shown promise that she was going to meet the person she was so happy about in one of her last journeys.

I really enjoyed it--very uplifting, even while reminding us of all of our human faults. I do love a happy ending (is that a spoiler??)!
