On September 5, 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.

In the tradition of Before I Fall and If I Stay, They Both Die at the End is a tour de force from acclaimed author Adam Silvera, whose debut, More Happy Than Not, the New York Times called “profound.”

Sweet.

Une lecture à la fois drôle et triste ; une très belle plume et un sens du suspense très acéré font de ce roman un succès certain auprès de tous ceux qui ont un cœur. A recommandé au lecteur avisé du fait de la force émotionnelle de l’histoire.

Tear jerker Performance

The tale is a beautiful story of connection and giving life a second chance. It meets all the requisites of a great narration, subtle ruses and emotionally inclined.

My heart..

I knew what i was getting myself into when i made the decision to buy this book. What i didnt know is that no matter how much i thought i have prepared myself for it, i wasnt even close.
The title says, they both die in the end, and you know in the back of your mind that eventually they will. However, you get so infatuated by the idea of they could’ve been, and THERE IS NO GOING BACK FROM THERE.
My heart will ache for a very long time, and i am too devistated to write an full review. All i know is that, this book needs to be read. It will stay with you. It will break your heart, and you will allow it, because thats what great stories are supposed to do.
Read it, you wont be sorry.

You try and prep yourself, but it won't help.....

This book is super emotional for me, because it's reminds me of personal stuff; that being said, I can see people enjoying the book and not having this crazy personal reaction and cry like a baby (like I did). I did say in my title for the review that you know what's going to happen. A book has never just laid it out there like this (as far as I know), but you still can't help falling in love with the two major and all the minor characters. Adam Silvera painted a picture so beautifully with his characters, but also this world. Death-Cast calls every person that is going to die that day between midnight and three. The point is so each individual will have that opportunity to do the things they put off and to say their final goodbyes. Whether, in reality, this is a good thing or not, I'm not even going to say. It's just the world Mr. Silvera puts the reader in.

Mateo and Rufus meet through "The Last Friend" phone application, which gets people who want to just hook up on their last day, one man who claims to have "the cure for death in his pants," people who are not dying who want to be there for others, and many more. Mateo is a very shy and sheltered eighteen-year-old, who feels like he spent his life playing it too safe when he gets the call from Death-Cast. Rufus is in the middle of beating up his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend when he gets the call. When he's doing his own funeral with his foster family and gang, the cops have been called and he's forced to flee his friends in order to not spend his last day in jail. He finds the app and Mateo reaches out to him and they meet. They start their day and do things that are awful and things that are great, but they end up doing things for each other that they never thought could happen.

The voice acting was stellar. I'm a huge fan of Michael Crouch, but this is the first time I've heard Robbie Daymond and Bahni Turpin. All three made this story so wonderful that I gave them 5 stars. As far as my personal rating, I give Michael Crouch an A, Robbie Daymond an A-, and Bahni Turpin a B+. The only reason why I'm giving Ms. Turpin a lower score is that I found parts of her performance to be stilted, but she did have to play everyone else who was not Mateo or Rufus. Still, I think she could've done a slightly better job.

The Book, for me, is going to get a B+, which is a totally different way of judging than how I look at narrators. This book was great and I enjoyed most of it. For me, the books that get 5's or A's in my system only happen 1-3 times a year. This was a solid book and did exactly what it was supposed to do, but I cannot say that it was in the top five. It is definitely something that should be read and I think it shows a version of a M/M relationship that isn't as "offensive" to a conservative audience. While I find LGBT books to be fine in general, I think some can be offended by stupid things like two boys who kiss or something like that. So, this is a book that should be read; it has lessons about regrets, last days, and so much more. I think this book is an important one and I really hope that people can give this book a chance.

They Both Die at the End

I will need at least a couple days to process this beautifully heart wrenching novel. This book will stick with me forever and my heart is broken. Once o gather my thoughts, I'm sure I'll have more to say, but I absolutely love this book and everyone should read it.

Nice quick read

Not a great book but not a bad book either. Interesting fictional subject matter, probably more suitable for a younger reader (teen-young adult). Obviously the end of the book is no secret but getting to their end is interesting enough. Narration was good.

Fantastically emotional

The voice actors are SO perfect for their roles. And the story is so emotional and real and beautiful. Do yourself a favor and give this a listen.

Would have been better if they die at the beginning

If your over the age of 35 you’re gonna hate this book, if your under the age of 35 your going to be intrigued, but your interest will fade along with your interest in both of these main characters. The premise of this book and beginning are quite good, but over time I found myself rooting for death to come and end this.

When reaching the climax of this book it fell flat (Spoiler Alert!!!), natural gas has a strong odor so unless Mathew and Dufus (intended) had a bad cold that we just don’t know about they would have smelled gas.

Here’s the thing, Matt and Dufus aren’t gonna fall in love in a day,.. Furthermore, Matt and Dufus wouldn’t even have hung out for more than ten minutes in real life. Dufus who I get it is speaking like a millennial is just annoying, and I mean mad annoying with his vocabulary. It was mad tiring to hear him talk about how mad (fill in the blank) something was.

There are some other interesting characters like the cop that we meet for five minutes and for some reason forget about.

This book made me feel like a group of high school students all submitted a story and this one took the cake.

Lastly, the male narrators did their best on this book and a good job but the female narrator is just terrible. She reminded me of an upset teacher who had to report on a Sunday to read to the class.

I want my nine hours back please.

The most tragically beautiful story

I literally could not get enough of this book. It was a huge journey of romance and friendship that comes at you in a slow and fantastic burn. I was weeping towards the end.
I would love to see this adapted into a film.
My only complaint spoiler ahead —- I wish mateo and rufus could have expressed there physical love a bit earlier so that mateo didn’t die not knowing what it felt like to have sex. But everything else was perfect. I like love that you aren’t explained why this service knows your death day. That must have taken restraint

Interesting concept

The story line is really original and even though you know what will happen in the end, it makes you keep wanting to listen.
The only thing that threw me off a little bit was the “slang” of one of the main characters (Rufus), which is why I only give it four instead of five stars.

Devastating great

I can barely find words. How can someone built such tention when the end is clear from the beginning? And how does he menage to at the same time release this tention into such beautiful scenes every once in a while. Great read and beautifully designed.

Carpe diem

It's not every day that you know the end of a book only by its title. But that's what got me hooked.
The story about all these different characters, even the minor ones with only small chapters about them, got me thinking even days after I finished the book. I really liked the storytelling. There are some surprises, even though you know how it ends all along. But the question is how and what will the characters experience on their last day in life? There are some choices that made me question, how would I react in this situation? And would I even wanna know, if this is my last living day?

Nichts für nebenbei

Die Geschichte und die Freundschaft der beiden ist tiefgründig und schön und doch durchweg traurig und melancholisch. Es gibt ein paar skurrile Momente zum Lächeln, aber es hätten nach meinem Geschmack mehr davon dabei sein können. Ich habe die Geschichte an einem verregneten, dunklen Wochenende durchgehört und fand es in dieser Kombination recht bedrückend. Die beiden männlichen Sprecher passen perfekt für ihre Charaktere. Die weibliche Erzählstimme klingt allerdings blechern wie eine Telefonansage, dafür und für die durchgehende Schwere einen Stern Abzug. Trotzdem sehr hörenswert.
