They Both Die at the End by: Adam Silvera

Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Contemporary
Published: September 5, 2017 by: HarperTeen
Pages: 368
Rating: 5/5 stars



Death Cast is a system that calls people 24 hours before they are going to die. It gives them a chance to live life to the fullest, say goodbye to loved ones, or engage with other soon to be dead people through the app Last Friend, for a final chance at a friend before your impending doom. Mateo and Rufus are strangers, but they both have one thing in common, and that is they will die on the same day. They meet through Last Friend for one final adventure, and to keep each other company on what is meant to be a not so good day.

Adam Silvera has done it again, folks! He was once more managed to make me laugh, cry, and just be utterly shocked all in one amazing book. This man knows how to write, and truly embodies a very gifted person who is able to weave sci-fi elements into realistic fiction, all while keeping things incredibly diverse.

This book was so unique. I had to keep reading no matter what because I felt like Mateo or Rufus could die at any moment. It's kinda sad, but Silvera keeps things comical and humorous at times to break up the overall morbid theme. It was really cool.

I loved everything about this book. The cover, the concept, the characters, everything was perfect and I couldn't put this down.

Have you read They Both Die at the End? What did you think?

  1. I haven't read anything by Adam Silvera and I seriously need to! If all his stories are this unique and all his writing is this beautiful, then he may end up being one of my new favorite authors if I would only find the time to pick up one of his books :) Ah the struggle of a bookworm... I've actually started a new shelf on GR specifically for my priority TBR and I have a feeling it's going to be overrun soon; I'm going to try and keep it to under 10 books though! Lovely review, Emily!
