#68 - They both die at the end by Adam Silvera (audiobook)
They Both Die at the End - Adam Silvera

I decided to get this book with my September audible credit. I had heard so many great things about Adam Silvera’s work, I wanted to see for myself what the hype was all about. I definitely am impressed and I totally understand why so many people love his writing.

 

This book was interesting and enjoyable on so many levels. I was expecting something sad and depressing (I mean, look at the title) but it was so not the case. I admit some moments made me tear up, but it was such a beautiful story.

 

This book made me think a lot about life, how important and how short it is. About friendship and love and family. I was also trying to imagine what I would do if I knew when my last day was. I think I would not want to live in a world where death cast exist. Too stressful, I would definitely be more like Mateo than like Rufus, I think.

 

Mateo and Rufus relationship is developing fast (of course) but in a realistic way, it did not feel forced and I liked that. I feel it was really natural. I was a bit skeptic about the ending though, it felt a bit rushed to me but I kind of felt like it was the point, so definitely not a bad thing.I really enjoy the plot and the pacing. The events take place during one day so it made it really fast but really detailed at the same time. I totally recommend this book!

They Both Die at the End - Adam Silvera
What a fantastic story line! I enjoyed reading this one. I enjoyed reading about all about the different opportunities the Deckers had as they tried to make the best of their situation. These possibilities were not all doom and gloom but they were rather a celebration, to take advantage of what life had to offer them. I thought the relationships in the novel were amazing, I loved their commitment to each other and the struggles that they wrestled with.
 
They had found one another by chance or was it destiny? They had both received the phone call and today was their End Day. One last day before their life is cut short. They took a chance and decided to spend their day together. They were Last Friends, who ended up embracing life on their final day on Earth. I liked Mateo’s and Rufus’ relationship. They met as strangers but by the end of the day, their relationship was tight and rewarding. It was emotional as they moved about their day, each of them sharing themselves openly with a stranger, a stranger who fulfilled their final day. I enjoyed the challenges they faced and the opportunities they undertook, they were honest and open with each other as they had nothing to lose for being themselves around each other. They didn’t seek out extreme opportunities to tempt fate, most of their final activities were natural, daily events. I really enjoyed the notion that they were not trying to prove themselves to each other, they were being themselves. I thought their day was extremely long as I read through it, they crammed enough activities into this day that I was tired just reading it. I really enjoyed this novel and highly recommend it.

Book Review : History is all you left me Adam Silvera
History Is All You Left Me - Adam Silvera

March 13-15

When Griffin’s first love and ex-boyfriend, Theo, dies in a drowning accident, his universe implodes. Even though Theo had moved to California for college and started seeing Jackson, Griffin never doubted Theo would come back to him when the time was right. But now, the future he’s been imagining for himself has gone far off course.

To make things worse, the only person who truly understands his heartache is Jackson. But no matter how much they open up to each other, Griffin’s downward spiral continues. He’s losing himself in his obsessive compulsions and destructive choices, and the secrets he’s been keeping are tearing him apart.

If Griffin is ever to rebuild his future, he must first confront his history, every last heartbreaking piece in the puzzle of his life.

Review : I loved this book it made me cry I loved these characters . Giffin's ex boyfriend died and he's having trouble dealing with it I loved how it was talked in the past and present.Griffin starts chatting with Jackson there's boyfriend Griffin never liked Jackson cause he was still in love with Theo but he broke up with Theo cause he wanted Theo to enjoy college and then Theo meets Jackson and he loves them both which is kinda fucked up cause Theo was mostly stringing Griffin along . Griffin ends of going to california with Jackson and they end up sleeping together . Jackson tells Griffin he didnt save Theo and he went for a lifeguard and Griffin gets mad and leaves . Griffin decides to talk to wade who was theo's best friend and his friend who he ended up sleeping with multiple times they decided to just be friends . Jackson visits again and him and Griffin talk Wade is very jealous . I feel like wade and Griffin will get together but griffin had to let Theo go I loved this book very emotional .
Quotes:
Time doesn’t heal all wounds. We both know that’s bullshit; it comes from people who have nothing comforting or original to say.”



People are complicated puzzles, always trying to piece together a complete picture, but sometimes we get it wrong and sometimes we’re left unfinished. Sometimes that’s for the best. Some pieces can’t be forced into a puzzle, or at least they shouldn’t be, because they won’t make sense.”



“History is nothing. It can be recycled or thrown away completely. It isn’t this sacred treasure chest I mistook it to be. We were something, but history isn’t enough to keep something alive forever.”

Griffin . Hey
No way
I freeze at the sound of my dad's voice He's right behind us.
I honestly think Id rather be caught masterbating .
wade laughs a little to himself probably. because this is going to be painfully humiliating .

I’ll never understand how time can make a moment feel as close as yesterday and as far as years.”

“But hey, if there’s one bright side to your dying, it’s that you aren’t around to tell me things I don’t like hearing. I’m sorry. That was a dickhead thing to say. I need a condom for my  mouth.

History Is All You Left Me - Adam Silvera

This story is about a boy grieving the loss of his ex-boyfriend. I liked the beginning of the book. I thought the OCD element was interesting as well. As the book progressed, I really struggled to get through it. I lost interest in the book but forced myself to finish this. I love almost everything I read and it is very rare for me to dislike a book so much that I can barely finish it. That unfortunately happened here. Part of it was more of a personal element for myself and not the book's fault really, as the book was all about grieving a loved one and for me that brought up a lot of painful memories of losing someone close to me in an accident a few years ago. I wouldn't really blame the book for that. The thing that I do blame the book for and the reason I don't consider this to be a great book is because of the main character really. He is so deeply upset and lost about the death of his ex-boyfriend yet I don't understand it because he got into a relationship with his ex-boyfriend's best friend while his ex-boyfriend also moved on to date someone new. I get that the main character and his ex were friends before dating and first loves but it just seemed like he kept trying to make it seem like they were soul mates and true loves when they clearly weren't. They had both moved on with other people. And also, the main character at one point proceeded to have sex with his ex-boyfriend's boyfriend. It seemed to me like he was a hypocrite and overly dramatic and selfish and someone who clearly sleeps around a lot which made me uncomfortable because of the circumstances surrounding his hook ups.
