They Both Die at the End


From the bestselling author of HISTORY IS ALL YOU LEFT ME comes another unforgettable story of life, loss and making each day count

On September 5th, 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.

Another beautiful, heartbreaking and life-affirming book from the brilliant Adam Silvera, author of
History Is All You Left Me (a Zoella Book Club 2017 novel)

PRAISE FOR ADAM SILVERA:

'
History Is All You Left Me overflows with tenderness and heartache. Even when its hero is screwing up royally, maybe especially then, Silvera's humanity and compassion carve out a space where it's not the falling that's important, it's how you pick yourself back up. There isn't a teenager alive who won't find their heart described perfectly on these pages.'
Patrick Ness

'Adam Silvera is a master at capturing the infinite small heartbreaks of love and loss and grief.
History Is All You Left Me is a beautiful meditation on what it means to survive devastating loss. This book will make you cry, think, and then cry some more.'
Nicola Yoon

'Bold and haunting.'
Lauren Oliver on
They Both Die At The End

'A phenomenal talent.'
Juno Dawson

Buchhändler-Empfehlungen

Carolin Fröhlich, Thalia-Buchhandlung Köln

Wie lebt man seinen letzten Tag, wenn man weiß dass man heute noch stirbt? Eine Achterbahnfahrt der Gefühle, die einen traurig macht, aber einen auch Momente des Glücks spüren lässt. Für diese Geschichte muss man sich Taschentücher bereit halten!

Taschentücher sehr zu empfehlen ...

Sara Pflanz, Thalia-Buchhandlung Berlin

Auch wenn der Titel schon verrät, wie das Buch endet, wurde mir das Herz am Ende des Buches herausgerissen. Ich habe die ganze Zeit gehofft, dass beide Charaktere, wie durch ein Wunder doch nicht sterben ... aber leider war alles hoffen nicht genug. Stellt also sicher, dass Ihr beim Lesen eine Packung Taschentücher neben Euch habt, Ihr werdet die brauchen.

I cried, I laughed, I hoped. I have no idea how anyone is able to write so tenderly and beautifully about such a sad topic, but I‘m truly thankful for this book! The story about a last, amazing day was in no way stereotypical and the author takes his time to unravel the innermost thoughts of his characters, until you feel like a “last friend” yourself. 5 stars

What would you do if you knew you only had one day to live? Rufus and Mateo live in the not too distant future, in which people get notified when their time is up. When the two teens get their Death Cast Calls they have to decide how and with whom they want to spend their last hours. Both are determined to make their remaining time count and connect via an app for Deckers - the Last Friend App. The idea behind this book intrigued me the instant I first heard about it. What WOULD I do if I was going to die within the next 24 hours? In this novel we follow Rufus and Mateo as they say their goodbyes, reminisce about their far too short lives and try to live their last day to the fullest. It's a heart-breaking story, yet also strangely hopeful and inspiring. You instantly connect with the character and want them to live forever, even though you know that they just won't. Silvera's writing and well-crafted characters make for a bittersweet reading experience. The only little thing I'd have to criticize is the romantic part of the book, which it could have done without, in my opinion. "They Both Die at the End" is a book that will definitely stay with me for a long time and I highly recommend it to teenagers and adults alike.
