Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Adam Silvera reminds us that there's no life without death and no love without loss in this devastating yet uplifting story about two people whose lives change over the course of one unforgettable day.

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".

    "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.

    "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.

    "Amazingly depressing"

    I knew from the moment I saw the damn title that I was in for a crying session at the end. Tears kept dropping down my face until i couldn't breath.

    This book didn't teach me anything, it merely enforced what I knew already. However, the enforcement that I received was much needed. The book is a metaphor that death will come any day and we have to live for today not for tomorrow and not for yesterday. The choices we make today will impact our lives forever. Rufus’ call would have never come if he and Amy were still together, if he didn't beat peck, if he never met Mateo. Meeting and falling in love with Mateo made Rufus the strong and selfless individual he became. Love, friendship, and purpose changes a person's outlook on life. In a way Rufus self-sabotaged himself but I think it was all worth it.
    This book has made me want to go through life with a purpose in everything I do and pride in whatever I accomplish, will it be small tasks or big ones. I don't want to be wired to live by society's rules and act how people want me to act just so I can hide my true self with a mask. I want to experience I want to live right now, while I'm still young.
    I would only change one thing, the tragic death of my favorite characters. They had so much ahead of them and the love they built in a day. Mateo and Rufus both represent me in a way. Mateo is my inner, more quiet and thoughtful side and Rufus, my louder impulsive side. The two made such a great opposite pair and I wish Silvera could write the endings out and put Mateo and Rufus together.

    "A Touching Tale..."

    "They Both Die at the End" really made me evaluate how I live my life. Isn't it better to actually live life , love friends and family and experience the wonder of being than to never really live your life, by being afraid or complacent or just stupid? Even if it's only for one day- make the most of it. Savor every precious moment with those you love.
    I truely liked the characters- I cared about Mateo and Rufus. I would 've liked them as friends. The narration was excellent. I can't recommend this book enough.

    Story
    "Fleeting and mindless"

    I though I'd enjoy this book more, but the characters felt empty. And somehow knowing they would die at the end made the listening experience distant and fabricated, like the all of the adventures they had throughout the day. Their insights were interesting, but not enough to keep the book going.

    "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.
