Publisher's Summary

At the age of 29, Hannah Martin has lived in six different cities and held countless meaningless jobs. On the heels of leaving yet another city, Hannah moves back to Los Angeles and takes up residence in her best friend Gabby's guestroom. 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.

I downloaded this audiobook when I had a big decision to make in my own life. I would highly recommend it for this purpose. Thought provoking and engaging throughout with very likeable characters.

Full five star recommendation. Absolutely adored this book. During the first paragraph I was thinking, yeh, yeh, here we go, and then bam, we have "Sliding doors". This I would have known had I read the synopsis beforehand. So, we follow Hannah Martin as her life unravels in two different universes so to speak. One where she is in a car accident after deciding to let fate take its course, and one where she decides to grab the bull by the horns and take a chance on her first love. Both scenarios play out with all the same characters, and Gabby remains a clear constant in both scenarios (Gabby's life too has two different courses, however Gabby's ending is somewhat the same in comparison to Hannah's). Each alternate scenario is told every chapter and I've got to say, it worked, I was engrossed. It had me thinking about my past and the what ifs, did I marry my soulmate? I certainly think I did, but so did Hannah, in both scenarios. Fantastic read, beautifully written. Highly recommend.
