Today I’m bringing to you a review for the novel They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera. This is my second book of the year and I found myself enjoying this novel immensely.
I, initially, was supposed to do a buddy read for this novel, but my friend didn’t end up reading it, so I went ahead and finished it up.
Let’s jump into the review!

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 and to live a lifetime in a single day.

My official rating of this is 3.75/5!
Reading this novel I knew it would break my heart. This journey follows our two main characters Mateo and Rufus who are living their last day as strangers that become friends trying to live their life to the fullest. Initially I didn’t know how I would like this novel, it being my first Adam Silvera novel. There is no doubt that I have heard a lot of this novel through others who have read it. The premise is incredibly interesting and something that I definitely have not heard about before, which made my enjoyment of this novel even greater.
This novel was definitely something that I enjoyed, but I do think that it could have been better. I found myself growing bored with the story line at times and found myself trying to rush through the novel and just finish it already.
I found the chapters being short and switching between characters to be a nice add on, it definitely made the novel move quicker and kept my attention as I read the novel. Additionally, the writing style was interesting but I do think that sometimes hearing Rufus speak, I found myself wondering if people actually talk like that.
As my first Adam Silvera novel I was pleased. It was an easy novel to read and I found the premise to be a unique idea that was interesting to follow. I do think I will read more of his novels in the future, but not as frequently as I would pick up a book from another author.
All in all, I do think that, if you haven’t already, everyone should read this. It does have an incredible theme that wills the reader to live every day to the fullest because you never really know when your life will come to a sudden end.
That concludes my review for They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera. I hope you enjoyed.
