Publisher's Summary

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.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.
