This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
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.
I suppose a book that can open up a steam of emotions are a good book. If that´s the case this would be the best ever. It´s such a beautiful book. I like the fact that every work of Adam Silvera contains one or two fantasy aspects whilst the rest is so realistic it could easily happen to you or someone you know. They both die at the end, what a funny idea to write a book where we know the ending even before starting. I wasn´t prepared for the ending at all though. I wonder if that was the whole point to this book. To throw his readers of guard. I´m not sure, if I´ll ever read this book again. Why read something that will bring you pain and sadness.
This was a reading experience I didn´t expect. I´m usually not vulnerable when it comes to reading. After I finished this, I threw the book across the room stumped upon it crying my eyes out. I couldn´t believe this book. I was lost for words.
It´s been a while since I read it, and even writing this review makes me sad. I remember the story and the characters as if I just read it. It´s branded in my mind like a scar and every time I touch it, it hurts.
It´s LGBT themed like all of Adam Silvera’s books. With a tiny aspect of something supernatural. It´s not something that changes the story in any way, but it´s there lurking in the background, reminding us that, this isn´t our world but maybe a futuristic version of it. I fell in love with the writing, the characters and their interaction.
If you haven´t read it yet it´s a reading experience that will change your way of reading in the future, bad or even semi bad books won´t even capture your interest after finishing this. These simply won´t be room in your life for books of lower quality. This will blow your mind! It´s readable for everyone really, gay, straight, man or female. The gay content in this book shouldn´t offend anyone, it´s very subtle.
