Inhaltsangabe

"[Narrator Julia] Whelan's performance is unforgettable in this darkly romantic fantasy about one young woman cursed always to be forgotten.... Her depiction of the darkness is smooth with a low cadence, capturing listeners' attention and their heart strings." (Booklist)

In the vein of The Time Traveler’s Wife and Life After Life, The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is New York Times best-selling author V. E. Schwab’s genre-defying tour de force. 

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.

Timeless,beautifully written,unique in its class.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is a combination of realistic fiction and magical moments weaved together with romance, with a little of historical, fantasy genre. V.E. Schwab, author of of the Bestselling Shades of Magic series returns with this timeless, beautifully written and unique in its class story. There are moments like its a fantasy fairy tale and then it leans to modern-day romance. I would say, after finishing the novel, romance is a bigger part of the story. Everything about this novel is Epic. From the characters, the pacing and the perfectly well thought plot. A strong heroine, a romantic inclination gears to appeal to a broad audience. It questions your soul as to the lengths you might go to for love or what you would do and what you'll go through when you are made immortal. The audiobook is just as magnificent as the novel. Perfectly portrayed, performed and narrated by Julia Whelan. I still kept thinking about this novel and it makes me smile (inspite the fact it shortly broke my heart and cried 🥲). A real sign of a good read/listen. This is the top of my best reads this year and it would be hard to top it. This is A MUST READ/LISTEN before you die, novel. I would give it 5x5 ☆'s!
