I was not interested in reading a book with this kind of title, where you can see the ending without reading a word of it. But someone told me about the idea behind this and I loved the background of this story. I am talking about the technology that is involved and basically is the reason why this book’s title is “They Both Die at the End.”

The idea is good but not explained properly for someone like me, who wants to know more of everything but still as a story and a background to this story it is not bad. And the reason I read this book. 

It is weird and kind of feels like an attempt to draw young readers but still, adults are going to get the same punch out of it; maybe more than a youngster is going to get it.

All characters feel so real and are written very well; even the side characters and backstories related to them are connected beautifully and make you realize everyone is alive in this book.

Okay, one thing is very clear, this book is really going to break you and burn your eyes with tears. Don’t read this book if you don’t want to cry because it is going to wrench your heart and make it pump and bleed out of your eyes.

I read lots of comments and requests where people are asking for recommendations on books that are going to make them cry; I dare them all to read this book and then ask the same question again.

This is a book that will remind you to live your life to the maximum every day and love everyone around you. One of the most beautiful stories that I read in a long time. It's heartbreaking but still impossible to put down, you can finish it in under four hours in one sitting but I am sure, you are going to cry for the next four hours after it's finished. The plot's complexity, Silvera's world-building, and the depths into the human mind that he delves into transforming this novel into a portal into the last day in the lives of these people that you are going to feel for and love by the end of this book. This book has all the real-life qualities like hope, sadness, tragedy, love, music, and a lot more; did I mention karaoke?

This book is not easy to read even though it’s not difficult to understand what is happening and that is not a fault of the writer, it is just the hard reality of life that may make it difficult. A thousand percent recommended but don’t forget to read the warning at the end of this review.

“A love story with a difference - an unforgettable tale of life, loss and making each day count in the NO. 1 BESTSELLING book of TIKTOK fame by Adam Silvera.

On September 5th, a little after midnight, Death-Cast calls Mateo Torrez and Rufus Emeterio to give them some bad news: they're going to die today. Mateo and Rufus are total strangers, but, for different reasons, they're both looking to make a new friend on their End Day. The good news: there's an app for that. It's called the Last Friend, and through it, Rufus and Mateo are about to meet up for one last great adventure - to live a lifetime in a single day.

Another beautiful, heartbreaking and life-affirming book from the brilliant Adam Silvera, author of More Happy Than Not, History Is All You Left Me, What If It's Us and the Infinity Cycle series.

'There isn't a teenager alive who won't find their heart described perfectly on these pages.' Patrick Ness, author of The Knife of Never Letting Go\

'Adam Silvera is a master at capturing the infinite small heartbreaks of love and loss and grief.' Nicola Yoon, author of Everything, Everything

'Bold and haunting.' Lauren Oliver, author of Delirium

'A phenomenal talent.' Juno Dawson, author of Clean and Wonderland”

Warning: Please do not read, I repeat, do not read this book if you had a breakup or you just lost someone and are grieving for someone.

This book is not perfect but it is beautiful enough to get perfect ratings
