Heartbreaking and still somehow beautiful.

F. Himmelstorfer, Thalia bookstore Linz

"In the End We Die Anyway" is a deep and thoughtful story about life and death. We experience the growing friendship between two opposing boys who get to know each other on their last day and decide to support each other on their last journey and to be there for each other. For both of them, the last day means changes, revelations and confessions, because neither Mateo nor Rufus want to regret anything when they leave their lives. Mateo wants to overcome himself to leave the safe apartment and make up on his last day what he has missed so far. He wants to enjoy all facets of life, which is a challenge for him because of his fears. Rufus, on the other hand, tries to answer for his mistakes and to find a good ending for everything. He tries to process his past and deeds in order to find himself again. As a reader, you accompany the two of them on their last day, are there up close when they talk, roam the city together, sing, celebrate and dance. You get to know them so well that at the end of the book you want a happy ending for both of them, even though you know full well that this is impossible. Because it is clear from the start that neither of them will see the next day. This is one of those books that will tear your heart apart and still magically make you smile.

Dead people do not love

Gregor Schwarzenbrunner, Thalia bookstore Linz, head office

The many hymns of praise on various social media accounts and the many book reviews have raised my expectations regarding Adam Silvera's novel “In the end we will die anyway”. Without question, it's an exciting and very entertaining book and I couldn't always fully understand the homage. Alternately, the story is told from the perspective of the acting people. Not only from the point of view of the main protagonists, but also from the point of view of apparent secondary protagonists. How everything fits together is revealed little by little, page by page. I really liked the idea that doomed people who do not die of natural causes and who are informed of this shortly before by means of a phone call, I really liked. This raises a lot of philosophical, sociological and moral questions - which Adam Silvera explains, a little explained or ignored, depending on the mood. I would have liked a straightforward approach here. Nonetheless, I liked the novel very much, mainly because this particular part of the story and its end reveals itself from the first page, and yet the reader hopes to the end. The end then was not very spectacular. But sometimes death is just not spectacular.

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 way too childish 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 it won't work with us anymore. My persuasions that something will definitely happen soon, was just as often disappointed. 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.
