Description

OCD-afflicted Griffin has just lost his first love, Theo, in a drowning accident. In an attempt to hold on to every piece of the past, he forges a friendship with Theo's last boyfriend, Jackson. When Jackson begins to exhibit signs of guilt, Griffin suspects he's hiding something and will stop at nothing to get to the truth about Theo's death. But as the grieving pair grows closer, listeners will question Griffin's own version of the truth - in terms of both what he's willing to hide and what true love means.

It Hurts. So You'll Like It.

This is one of those books that is beautiful in a painful sort of way. I would definitely reread this, as it approaches grief in a way that feels so honest, and some of the perspectives are refreshingly different from other YA Contemporary stories centered around grief and loss.

The writing is excellent, and I adore the characters. There was even something that took me by surprise, because I was so buried in the story that I didn't even bother making predictions or assumptions while I read. I was just completely along for the ride on this, and I think that was the right way to experience it. Because, after all, grief itself is rather unpredictable.

i want my heart back

this book... this book tore my heart out and I kind of want it back. the story was amazing, heart breaking and,over all just a great time. I've always loved books that can make me really feel something and this book did that. and the narrator did a good job of capturing the pain griffin was going through. I swear, sometimes it felt like he was actually crying in the booth. I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone

A Beautiful Narrative of Young Love and Real Loss

Would you consider the audio edition of History Is All You Left Me to be better than the print version?

Silvera's novel is a very beautiful exploration of first love and loss--death, in fact. The relationship between Griffin and Theo is authentic and heartfelt and the tenderness of their dynamic resonates in the pain that Griffin feels as he processes his grief over Theo's death. This novel had me smiling, sneering, chuckling, and frowning. I cared about these characters--I sincerely wanted Griffin to find happiness again.

The novel's third act does struggle a bit: some events unfold that are not only unprecedented, but a little difficult to buy. That being said, 'History Is All You Left Me' concludes well and leaves a lot on which to reflect. The novel is poignant, insightful, raw, and, most importantly, enjoyable. I find myself quickly becoming a Silvera fan, and I look forward to the release of his next book, 'They Both Die at the End.'

What about Tom Picasso’s performance did you like?

While he does sound a little young, Picasso did a great job of conveying a sense of innocence and vulnerability through Griffin's narration. He took about a chapter to grow on me, but thereafter, I enjoyed the performance.

Surprisingly, it turned out to be a good read.

I'm not going to lie...
when I first purchased this book, I thought I had wasted a credit. I had the mentality of "I will finish this no matter what!"

The more I listened, the more I appreciated what I read. This book focuses on a a boy who is grieving the loss of his first love. It switches between two timelines. The timeline where Theo is dead, and the timeline where he's alive and you get to see the dynamic between griff and the group. There are quite a few twist that I was not expecting. It's a great read. By the end of the book, you'll grow to care for the characters, all of them.

love the story, not the narrator

another amazing book from adam silvera. cannot gush enough. however, i found it difficult to get through because of the narrator. he speaks with a lot of inflection and emotion, but can, at times, sound like an overexcited child.

BRILLIANT!

Despite some confusion on account of who's speaking at any given time. The story was beautiful! It breaks your heart from the first chapter and allows you to truly empathize with the characters

"I promise you: I'll never die" - APPLAUS!!!!!

4,5*
Das `Young Adult`-Genre konnte mich bislang nicht wirklich begeistern. Ich durfte jetzt aber erkennen, welche die Besonderheit ist, die nur dieses Genre zu liefern vermag, wenn ein guter Schriftsteller es in die Hand nimmt: Nur unverbrauchte, unvernarbte Seelen sind in der Lage so intensiv, rücklsichtslos, furcht- und ahnungslos zu lieben.
Die Geschichte dreht sich um 4 Jungs, Griffin, Theo, Wade und Jackson, die in vorurteilsfreier, interessanter Konstellation miteinander verbunden sind: Griffin ist Theos Ex, Wade ist seit den Kindertagen der beste Freund von Theo und Griffin und Jackson ist Theos Neuer. Theo wird gleich zu Beginn Opfer eines tötlichen Unfalls und alles erstarrt. Die Geschichte springt in der Gegenwart und in der der Vergangenheit vor und zurück und erzählt, ohne den Hörer dabei zu vewirren. Zunächst erscheint es, als würde man ein verdammt gut geschriebenes Buch über Verlust und Trauer in den Händen zu halten. Die Geschichte wird jedoch immer komplexer, je ehrlicher sie wird.
Wenn Ihr keine Geschichten mögt in denen man viel weinen muss, die einen anrühren und emotional aufwühlen---ja dann sollte ihr dieses Buch trotzem lesen/hören. Wenn Ihr eine wirklich ehrliche Geschichte über starke und schwache, oh so fehlbare Menschen hören wollt, ja dann solltet Ihr Euch sowieso und auf jeden Fall für dieses Buch entscheiden.
Und keine Angst: trotz der vielen Tränen geht es einem irgendwie trotzdem gut...

Wonderful book

Masterful combination of timelines and very moving story. And a very good choice of narrator.
