Publisher's Summary

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.

When Addie La Rue makes a pact with the devil, she trades her soul for immortality. But there's always a price - the devil takes away her place in the world, cursing her to be forgotten by everyone. Addie flees her tiny home town in 18th-century France, beginning a journey that takes her across the world, learning to live a life where no one remembers her and everything she owns is lost and broken. Existing only as a muse, she learns to fall in love anew every single day. Until one day, in a second-hand bookshop in Manhattan, Addie meets someone who remembers her. Suddenly thrust back into a real, normal life, Addie realises she can't escape her fate forever.

Masterpiece, a joy to read & equisitely performed!

What a fantastic book to read - I loved it!!! V.E. Schwab is brilliant (as always!) and Julia Whelan brings to life Addie LaRue, Luc and Henry with such distinct cadence and effortlessness that each moment is a joy to be immersed in. Like the story itself, change is the only constant and time is fleeting and everlasting simultaneously. I didn't want this book to end, but what a heartbreaking and perfect place to rest. Thank you V.E. Schwab, I enjoyed the journey you gave Addie & Henry immeasurably.

So much more than expected!

Time Travellers Wife meets Interview with a Vampire? This book was much more than the light entertainment I had expected. Excellent character development, cracking storyline and a satisfying ending. The narrator was great too.

Had me engrossed from start to finish

Fantastic story with great narration. From the outset I was listening while trying to think how I would react in that situation. I was absolutely hooked.

A Beautiful Masterpiece

A Beautiful Masterpiece. My mind will also debate whether Addie LaRue was real or fiction.
