They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
Review: Okay first off I have to say is that, yes I did read the title of this book and a little about what it was about. But I don’t think I was anywhere near prepared for what this book truly was about, death. Other then loving and dreading every minute I read of this book, I was really happy that the book was so easy to read, like reading water (I know this makes no sense but for some reason I can’t stop saying it or come up with something better).
One of my favorite things in this book was the multiple points of view from people who were also dying that day or not dying that day. I felt this was a very unique book and I still love it with all my heart even though this book destroyed.
So reading about people finding out that today was their last day to live, really did a number on me. Suddenly that was all I could think about-would I want a heads up that I was going to die on the day of or just not know and let my normal everyday life go on. All I could think about were the different sides to this topic-if I did get a heads up then I could live my day to the fullest and get my things in order for when I go. But on the other side I could not help but think that if I did know I would be meeting my end, that day, that I might inadvertently cause my own death by doing something (living my day to the fullest-buck-list) different then I would normally. So there was a lot of thinking going on for a few weeks, even though I had finished the book.
Oh my god, the ending to this book! I loved it but at the same time I wanted more. To know how other characters that had viewpoints in the book met their end and if they had gotten the chance to say goodbye… and so on.
But I do think I left a piece of my heart behind when I closed this book.
Favorite quote: “I love you from here to there”
Would I? Tell everyone about this book? I already am. Love my copy more then anything? Yes. Hug this book every time I see it? Yes, please.
