Interesting, complex, fabulous ( )

I was unsure how I’d feel about Addie given all the hype, but it floored me! It was a slow burn, but in the end I came away with my emotions challenged like a book truly hasn’t done in years. I was sobbing all the way to the end. ( )

Criminal misuse of a decent Faustian premise. Immortality and no one remembering you is basically carte blanche to get into some really interesting adventures, see the world, and push boundaries everywhere. But what does this girl do? She just steals clothes and simps for white boys for 300 years.

The only interesting scene was when she gets mistaken as dead and is tossed into a cart with plague ridden corpses which she has to climb out of lol.

the Luc parts read like Mary Sue fanfiction. ( )

It pains me to give a V.E. Schwab book only 2 stars because I love the Shades of Magic series. To be fair, I have recently read several books in which characters live multiple lives (Oona Out of Order, The Midnight Library) so the novelty of a person living 300 years wore off within a few chapters. Worse, however, is that Addie LaRue doesn't learn anything or grow emotionally from living centuries of history. For an immortal, she has shockingly few interesting experiences (most of them in France or New York City) and she is solely focused on pushing the boundaries of the deal she made with a god of darkness which prevents her from being remembered by anyone. But even when she is successful at it, she is unsatisfied. The book tries to tell the reader why Addie is determined to live rather than surrender her soul but, in my view, it doesn't make a strong enough case. Meeting Henry is a briefly bright turn of events but he also turns out to be a dull character. I love books, and bookstores, and libraries, and I firmly believe that stories are a crucial element of a life well-lived but not every book that draws on these treasures deserves automatic praise. The writing style is repetitive (has anyone counted the number of times the narrative refers to Addie's seven star-shaped freckles?) and Addie LaRue's story is completely forgettable. ( )

"Déjà vu, Déjà su, Déjà vecu."
Already seen, already known, already lived.

• • • • •
Adeline, Addie, LaRue has lived for three centuries, a blink in her eternal life. Already seen, already known, already lived is merely a mantra to Addie. But Addie was not born immortal, and immortality has a price.

As a young woman, Addie yearned for more from life than the confines of her hometown village in Villion, France. By luck, or by the graces of the Gods that heard her prayers and accepted her offerings, during the protection of daylight, Addie was able to keep her yearning alive, keep her freedom from unwanted marriages.

But not all of Addie’s prayers go answered, not all of her offerings are accepted and soon Addie finds herself offered to a man she does not want. As the wedding day circles around Addie, corralling her like a trapped animal, Addie’s yearning quickly turns to hunger, and then desperation. The prospect of marriage and belonging to someone swells from a sensation of foreboding to a knife pressing into the soft skin of her throat.

Addie's devastating desire to escape - to be free, to belong to no one- sends her running to the woods to pray. But prayers take time, and as time slips away, Addie does the one thing she never should have: she prayed to the Gods that only answer after dark...and one of them answered.

Stumbling through her words, desperate for freedom, and determined to strike a deal – Addie proposes a bargain that the God cannot turn down. But the cost of her bargain, and perhaps her poor choice of words, will leave her to live an eternity alone. Nobody will remember Addie. Shut the door, or so much as turn away, and the memory of Addie simply slips away. She is a stranger to everyone she encounters…that is until she happens across twenty-eight year old Henry Strauss.

V.E. Schwab's The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is a poem dropped into an ocean, where the swells are emotions, the depths are dark desperation, and the spaces in-between are words glittering by the light of the sky.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue deliberately takes its time, weaving the reader through the past and the present, through Europe and New York City, and into the dark that lurks like a shadow. We swim through the memories of Addie’s unusual life and dive deep into Henry’s troubled mind, enduring the stark sensation of loneliness and longing, only to surface and take gasping, momentary breaths of joy and love.

It should be noted that The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue can be a bit like a poem reciting verses over, and over, and over again. (Okay, so Schwab doesn't describe the same detail the same way, but we read about dark curls and constellation freckles over, and over, and over again - you get the point).

This is not a novel driven by plotlines, but rather a novel driven by the characters – their stories and how they intertwine. Where Schwab’s Vicious turned corners when I least expected them, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue was heavy in foreshadowing and I found that parts of it were predictable. I would have also liked to see more interaction between Luc and Addie, given that Luc is a constant throughout the novel and a large reasoning for how Addie has found herself living such a peculiar life. The parts that did delve into the interactions of Luc and Addie I found to be more enjoyable than Addie's interactions with Henry. I think Luc's dark elements added to this factor.

Overall, a lyrical, enjoyable read.

4 Solid, shining stars. ( )

This sweeping fantasy is as much a love story as it is a tribute to storytelling, art, and inspiration. Schwab’s diverse cast is beautifully rendered, and the view of human connection on offer is biting and bitter, yet introspective and sweet. This ambitious and hopeful work is a knockout.

The old gods may be great, but they are neither kind nor merciful. They are fickle, unsteady as moonlight on water, or shadows in a storm. If you insist on calling them, take heed: be careful what you ask for, be willing to pay the price. And no matter how desperate or dire, never pray to the gods that answer after dark.

Estele Magritte, 1642-1719
