Maybe in Another Life is a literary fiction book by author Taylor Jenkins Reid.
New York Times bestselling author of Seven Husbands by Evelyn Hugo; now with additional conversation with Julia Whelan and Taylor Jenkins Reid.
At 29, Hannah Martin still doesn’t know what she wants to do with her life. She has lived in six different cities and worked countless meaningless jobs since graduating from college. When she leaves another city, Hannah moves back to her hometown of Los Angeles and lives in her best friend Gabby’s living room. Shortly after returning to town, one night, Hannah goes to a bar with Gabby and meets her high school boyfriend, Ethan.
Just after midnight, Gabby asked Hannah if she was ready to go. After a while, Ethan offers to drive her later if she wants to stay. Hannah hesitated. What if she leaves with Gabby? What if she leaves with Ethan?
In concurrent storylines, Hannah determines the impact of each decision. Completely different stories with large-scale consequences for Hannah, as well as those around her. As two alternate realities take their course, Maybe in Another Life raises the question of fate and true love: Is there something like that? How much in our lives is determined by chance? And perhaps, most convincingly: Is there such a thing as a soul mate?
Have you ever wondered if you were living your life in an alternating universe as well as the one you are in now? Maybe in Another Life examines this idea using two alternating plotlines and parallel timelines.
Hannah Martin is at a crossroads in her life, a place she is not happy with the directions it is going in. Having just ended an affair with a married man she has decided to move from NYC back to her hometown of LA. She has temporarily moved in with her very close and best friend Gabby and her husband Mark. To celebrate the three of them meet up at a local club with old friends including Hannah ex-boyfriend Ethan. At the end of the celebration Hannah is presented with a choice .. go home with Gabby and Mark or stay at the club with Ethan.
In alternating chapters Reid explores Hannah’s life as she lives in each life path, looking for that perfect thing to make her happy and her fulfill her life. While on this alternating life journey Hannah will make the same career choices and come across the same people yet her life outcome will be different with Gabby as the only constant in her life than does not change .. no matter which path Hannah is following.
Author Taylor Jenkins Reid based this idea on her love for the movie Sliding Doors. Unlike Sliding Doors Reid wanted this story to explore that there could be different decisions that lead you to different places and that maybe there really is not one person that is your soulmate. Maybe in Another Life is an examination on faith, choices, soulmates and that there are many ways that we can be happy.
This is my fourth Taylor Jenkins Reid, the first two were for me quite a disappointment that I was about to shelf Reid as an author. Maybe in Another Life and One True Loves made me fall in love with this author’s writing.
