Book Review: The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue (Spoilers Included)

I just finished reading The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab, and wow! This was the first Schwab book that I have read, and it seemed so unique even from her other books that I was genuinely stoked to read. 

I genuinely enjoyed the read! Schwab’s writing was so lyrical at times and her comparisons were so great, I think her writing itself made the book enjoyable to read. Below are two of my many favorite snippets from her book.

  1. “He may be a sun, but she is a shining comet, dragging their focus like burning meteors in her wake.”
  2. “Le Mans looms at her back and ahead the high stone walls give way to scattered towns, each one like a copse of trees, and then, to open field, and then, to what, she does not know.”

The concept itself was genuinely refreshing. It’s been awhile for me to read a book about a deal with a devil and the way she implemented was so unique and intriguing.

Characters Addie, and Henry were some of the most relatable and realistic characters I’ve ever read. Their internal and external conflicts were something I could see and imagine. Especially Henry with his trying to be loved and running out of time. I genuinely cared for these two.

Also, the theme of the book that I found, I really enjoyed it. The desire to be remembered, to live a meaningful life, and to have dreams even if the entire world is against you. As well as more, such as to succeed and have people around you love you for who you are. All of these were presented in the book tastefully, and realistically.

However, I do have some complaints about the book. 

  1. It was so long! I truly believe some of it could have been cut down like some of Addie’s past along with their moments of her and Henry. Many examples of how Addie lived her life were shown that really didn’t add to her story. For example, I really liked Addie’s and Sam’s relationship, however at the end of the book, I realized it didn’t really add anything to the book, but show that Addie was also into women. However with Toby it did add to her story because he showed up at the end of her story with him playing a song that the two of them created together. Or maybe keep Sam in the story but get rid of one of many of Addie’s past lovers. Overall, we didn’t need to know everything Addie did in three hundred years.
  2. The way it was marketed. I truly believed going into the book that there would be romance between Addie and Luc. I thought it was some romance between her and a devil. And it wasn’t. I mean they had their moments, but it was her and Henry and I’m okay with that, but I felt kinda let down. That was my misunderstanding. I guess I just want a fancy devil as a romance interest that ends in a happy ending. 
  3. This isn’t a problem with the book, or Schwab but with me. And that is there weren’t that many fantasy elements in it. Yes, there was a deal with a devil, thus the fact that Addie could live 300 years maintaining her youth, and Henry’s deal that made people see what they want in him. But that was it. Knowing the concepts of the other adult Schwab’s books, I thought there would be more fantastical elements. Not every book needs them, I know, but I was kinda expecting more. I feel those that love more contemporary than SFF would really enjoy the book.


Overall, I thought this book was fantastic, and would recommend it to those that aren’t huge fantasy fans and to those that like to have enjoyable characters that are realistic and can care for. Schwab’s ideas and writing are excellent and she deserves the praise that she gets and more. Leave below your comments on how you felt about the book!
