Review: Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Sunday, August 02, 2015
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.




“We don’t know what would have happened. But whatever would have happened wasn’t supposed to happen.”“You really believe that?” Ethan says. “I think I have to”


Hannah is facing with a dilemma to go home with her best friend or go home with the ex boyfriend.In this story we can see both decisions and how Hanna's life would have been if she had picked one of the two choices.How can a decision change your life?

Such a wonderful,unique,brilliant and sweet story.First book from this author but I have heard so many good things about her so I couldn't resist this book!!I had it pre-ordered and I couldn't wait to find time and finally read it!At beginning I had some difficulties because I was a little confused but when I understood what was really happening I wanted to read more and more to see what will happen!The story is really interesting,the parallel universe concept is so brilliant and original!The author managed to weaved the two story lines together so perfectly!
