Maybe in Another Life : A Novel

Taylor Jenkins Reid

From the acclaimed author of Forever, Interrupted and After I Do comes a breathtaking new novel about a young woman whose fate hinges on the choice she makes after bumping into an old flame; in alternating chapters, we see two possible scenarios unfold-with stunningly different results. At the age of twenty-nine, Hannah Martin still has no idea what she wants to do with her life. She has lived in six different cities and held countless meaningless jobs since graduating college. On the heels of leaving yet another city, Hannah moves back to her hometown of Los Angeles and takes up residence in her best friend Gabby's guestroom. Shortly after getting back to town, Hannah goes out to a bar one night with Gabby and meets up with her high school boyfriend, Ethan. Just after midnight, Gabby asks Hannah if she's ready to go. A moment later, Ethan offers to give her a ride later if she wants to stay. Hannah hesitates. What happens if she leaves with Gabby? What happens if she leaves with Ethan? In concurrent storylines, Hannah lives out the effects of each decision. Quickly, these parallel universes develop into radically different stories with large-scale consequences for Hannah, as well as the people around her. As the two alternate realities run their course, Maybe in Another Life raises questions about fate and true love: Is anything meant to be? How much in our life is determined by chance? And perhaps, most compellingly: Is there such a thing as a soul mate? Hannah believes there is. And, in both worlds, she believes she's found him.

Jag gillade den här boken, det är den första boken av Taylor Jenkins Reid som jag läser, trots att jag har både Evelyn Hugos sju äkta män och Daisy Jones and the Six väntandes i bokhyllan. Vartannat kapitel följer de olika alternativen och hur Hannahs liv blir, beroende på om hon följde med Ethan eller inte den där kvällen. Jag gillade Henrys karaktär så jag föredrog den ena historien lite mer än den andra. Det här är första boken jag läser där det blir två olika alternativ för hur berättelsen ska sluta beroende på ett enda val som karaktären gör, men jag gillade att se att det var olika men ändå lite liknande slut i båda.
