"[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.

C’est vraiment un récit poignant, qui ne m’a pas laissée indifférente.
Je suis passée par tellement d’émotions : scepticisme, frustration, tristesse, joie,...
Impossible de rester de marbre face à l’histoire d’Addie.
On va vivre avec elle 300 ans. 300 ans de galère, de bonheur, de découverte, de déception, de malheur.
A travers les âges, les continents mais aussi l’art. On va suivre la vie de cette femme condamnée à toujours être oubliée. Comment vivre sans attache, sans repère, sans amour, sans laisser de traces.
La plume de l’auteure est vraiment belle, et je l’ai encore plus appréciée en VO ; combiné à une histoire originale , on se retrouve face un récit très prenant et addictif.
J’ai adoré les trois personnages principaux : que ce soit Addie et son envie de liberté et de découverte ; Henry et sa super sensibilité m’a beaucoup touchée, et Luc se personnage qu’on a envie de détester mais dont on finit par s’attacher.
Ces personnages ne sont pas parfaits, ils ont leurs défauts, leurs cicatrices, et ils n’en sont que plus attachants.
As addie started : "A girl is running for her life" - as we all do, in some way. Always running for something, time, love, health, joy. What are you running for.
I feel so lost and empty and full at the same time and I'm still not sure about the rating I absolutely don't know what I should put.
One day ago I was really mad at this book, really mad because I was expecting so much and I was disappointed. But now I have finished this book. I don't think it is the end that makes the whole thing. I think that when you finish the book you just understand what you just did. How you have read an entire 300 years story.
It took me one month to read 300 years and as addie has changed, I have changed too. In one month I have changed so much, i wasn't the same than when I started to read the invisible life of addie larue. I was with her for a whole month and I wanted to read something else but now I feel so lost and alone. It's like the book broke me and feed me at the same time. It seems like I have lived 300 years and learned so much, but it was things I already knew, it just came clearer to my mind.
In the end I will just say that I am lost. Deeply lost. But at the same time I feel fulfilled with characters and stories and experience. Should you read this book ? It's like asking me if you should travel, study, learn a new language, fall in love. You should read this but at the same time, be careful. Take your time, take a year if needed to read this.
I knew this book was going to break me when I started it because I already knew how much I needed and still need to be loved and remembered. And this book offered me the perfect story, the story about love and memory.
This is the story of Addie LaRue, a woman cursed to be forgotten by anyone she meets as soon as she gets out of their sight.. until someone remembers her... and that’s pretty much it.
It’s a beautifully written book as always and it reads like a memoir of sorts. It’s a bittersweet story with a lot of insightful moments, vignettes in the life of a woman that sometimes hit you very hard.
Still, I am a bit frustrated with Addie and get Luc’s point of view when he keeps asking Addie why she doesn’t do more with her gifted/cursed lifespan. I wish the book read more like an epic story and that the fact that someone finally remembered her meant something more dangerous... than settle for a star-crossed love story.
Bon après tout c’est ce qui est écrit dans un livre qui compte! Hâte de commencer à le lire !!

That is the emotional equivalent of reading The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue.
I am so very disappointed in this book. I was so stoked about the premise, and I thought it’d be dark and gritty and cool and we’d get a complex plot with a sprinkle of a love story.
But, instead, it was a 300 year slog through the endless emotional cycle of regret and loneliness of a 300 year old girl, her emotionally manipulative demon lover, and her clinically depressed, unbearably boring boyfriend. I could not get through it fast enough.
This entire book feels like a missed opportunity. Instead of going from beginning to end, letting time and consequence shape this character, we skate over the tiny detail of our Addie’s immortality by jumping back and forth along the timeline. And I know Victoria Schwab loooves jumping timelines. It’s her jam, and that’s fine, when it’s done well and with purpose. In this book, they’re literally spoilers, even going as far as using the phrase, “Later, she will learn...” Oh, good, then there’s no point in telling this story? Great. Glad I’m here. The timeline jumps not only ruin any tension in the story due to their poor timing, they serve as a mere acknowledgement of the passing of time, and gives us a rushed, topical rundown of the historical events the character has lived through that, while they shape the entire foundation of the world Addie lives in, don’t seem to affect her at all.
The other problem is Addie. She is a miserable, honestly pretty whiny, weirdly stubborn character from start to finish, and the author really grinds that misery in at every opportunity. It’s hard to follow her around and not be bored with her, “I’m lonely and sad all the time, but I’m also pointlessly stubborn about staying that way” narrative.
I could go on, but I’ll just say, I’m disappointed and I wanted it to be better.
This is a very character driven book, and Addie as a character is wonderful, because she is flawed. She spends her life forgotten, and so she has picked up a lot of bad habits in order to survive. I really liked the fact that Addie is not perfect, because she is a reflection of human existence. She has gone through so much and yet never loses her love for art, or for life. She has goes through the best and worst of human existence, and still finds joy in the world. She finds something new, and I feel like we all need a bit of Addie in our lives to remind us that joy can be found in the strangest of places. There are so many incredible characters in this book, predominately Henry the person who remembers her and Luc, the devil who cursed her. But each person that Addie meets adds a new layer to the story, and a new outlook and insight into this world. Each chapter was a new exploration, a new idea, explored through encounters with the people surrounding Addie.
The plot seems like a simple ‘person sold their soul to the devil to live forever’ kind of story, but it is so much more than that. There is so much to this book, but it is best left discovered in your own time. This book starts slow, in that it slowly pulls you into its rhythm, flipping backwards and forwards in time between events that all build upon each other. This creates the feeling that it’s weaving you into the story, dropping hints here and there until you’re so caught up in what will happen next that you can’t think of much else and don’t want to stop reading. This is definitely a book that will stay with me for a long time, and keeps haunting my thoughts.
‘The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue’ is thought provoking, and brings up a lot of thoughts about the nature of existence and what it means to live. Can we really live without making a mark on the world, or is it the impression we have on others that makes us real? I wasn’t expecting this book to raise a lot of philosophical questions, and make me rethink the nature of existence, relationship with art and the meaning of life but it did! It made me think a lot about my own insecurities about life, being forgotten and the nature of art and reality. I’m sure a lot of readers won’t be quite so plagued by these thoughts but they were such an important part of the book in my opinion and they have left an impression on me in the most interesting way! There’s also such a focus on art in the book, which ties the whole thing together in such a wonderful way. There was such a love of art that came across in the pages, it felt like a love letter to creativity at times, which I found really inspiring.
Overall, I absolutely adored this book. It was beautiful, lyrical, incredibly written and haunting. It took me through such a range of emotions, and left me wanting more. The characters were fantastic, the story was gripping and it lived up to and then exceeded every one of my hopes. Schwab is a master storyteller and this is her best book to date. This book is special, fully of joy and I hope everyone who reads it loves it as much as I do.

(A quick side note about the very poor editing. So many words missing, or extra words that I noticed. And continuity errors! Just one example is that she drapes her coat over a kitchen chair, but later mentions that there are no kitchen chairs! Also, at one point she's talking with someone in the kitchen, then in the next sentence she stands from the bed??? It drove me mad!!!)
I love Addie LaRue. I am awestruck at the resilience and strength she has. If I were her, I'd have surrendered my soul to the devil on the first night is Paris. She has a hunger to live and be free that is intoxicating. And she's not the only character that I loved. Even the fleeting ones were deep and lovable.
The writing is so beautiful. I love Schwab's style! She pulls you into the scene and it's so easy to feel everything the characters are feeling. It's an emersive experience.
Plot is where the book stumbles a little for me. The main plot, Addie making a deal with a God for her soul and the other main plot points (which I won't spoil), is wonderful!!! I loved every second. But there were far, far too many bits in between. I think this book could have been at least 100 pages shorter and you'd still get the entire experience without the parts that drag and make you wonder why everyone is saying such wonderful things about this book!!
But you get past those parts, the main plot takes over and... I shattered. I completely shattered, I'm still crying, I may be crying for a while. It's absolutely devistating and yet stunningly beautiful. I will, happily, read this book again in a few year and still cry my eyes out! At least the second time I'll know to have tissues at the ready!
I have a couple more of the authors books on my shelf, unread, and I'm really looking forward to them now!
