The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is a historical fantasy novel by V.E. Schwab, about a woman who makes a deal with the devil to live forever, but is cursed to be forgotten by everyone she meets. The novel spans over 300 years, as Addie travels the world, experiences history and art, and tries to leave her mark. Her life changes when she meets Henry, a bookstore owner who remembers her name.
I liked this novel because it was beautiful, emotional, and clever. The characters were complex and memorable, especially Addie, who has a strong and hopeful voice. The plot was captivating and surprising, with many twists and turns that kept me interested. The setting was vivid and authentic, with a lot of details about the different eras and cultures. The writing style was smooth and elegant, with a lot of poetic language and imagery.
I think this novel is a masterpiece by Schwab, because it explores the themes of love, identity, memory, and humanity through the eyes of an immortal woman. It is also a reflection of the modern society, as it touches on the issues of loneliness, belonging, and freedom. I recommend this novel to anyone who likes historical fiction, fantasy, or romance.
