Do you think you know what you got yourself into?

Nadja Claus, Thalia bookstore Augsburg

Believe me you don't. How would you spend the last day of your life if you knew you were going to die in the next 24 hours? Mateo and Rufus face exactly this problem. In their company, death is announced with a phone call. The two boys get to know each other through the "Last Friends" app and decide to let the last hours of their lives count. "In the End We Die Anyway" by Adam Silvera is one of my all-time favorite books. It is emotional, touching and nice to accompany the two boys on their short journey. You fear, hope and feel for them. It remains exciting until the last page, humorous and touching in a macabre way. I would recommend this great, profound story to everyone!

Sina Ellmann, Thalia bookstore Soest

A wonderful story. She is sad, courageous, full of hope and pain, but above all she makes you aware of how precious and colorful life is. I can only recommend the book to everyone!

The basic idea behind the book is really great, but unfortunately not implemented that great for me. In fact, I would have wished to read more from the supporting characters than from the two main protagonists, as their story in one chapter was more exciting than the whole story of Rufus and Mateo. This is where the next problem lies for me: I just didn't get used to the two main characters right from the start. For their age, they seem much too childlike in their behavior to me, especially Mateo. I expected emotions that stir me up, but in the end I read the boo bluntly with a roll of my eyes - which I find a shame myself! After a little more than 200 pages, however, I had to find out for myself that we couldn't do anything anymore. My persuasions that something is bound to happen soon, was also disappointed just as often. Maybe after all the praise my expectations were simply too high. I don't know, just that this disappointment is there and will probably remain for the first time. I attribute the 2 stars to the fluent writing style and because I liked the few short chapters of people that have nothing to do with the boys themselves.
