Adams Silvera’s They both die at the end is both heartbreaking and beautiful.

How would you spend your last day to live if you were warned 24 hours earlier? Well for Mateo and Rufus they search for a friend to spend their last day with. Adam Silvera brings fate, complicated characters and a foreign world with the Death Dast into the book magnificently. Throughout this book, you will be taken on a rollercoaster of emotions, and by the end, you will have felt all the emotions for love and loss. It begins with Mateo and Rufus receiving a call from the Death Cast telling them they are both going to die today. This results in each character reacting differently. For Mateo it is to stay in his room and for Rufus, it is to have a funeral while living. Eventually, Mateo and Rufus meet through an app which is created for people who have no one on their last day. From their unbreakable able friendships are made and others strengthen.

Every character has their own charisma, which affects their choices on their last day. Instead of trying to avoid death Mateo and Rufus live their day to the fullest. The Death Casts call benefits them because they each grow as a person and face their troubles. The book storyline goes for just under 24 hours but you are still able to see the growth of the relationships. Mateo has regrets over not living his life and ready to start taking some risks. “Maybe it’s better to have gotten it right and been happy for one day instead of living a lifetime of wrongs.” This quote, from the book, shows that beautiful connections can be found and made in a day. Somethings you search for over a long period of time and are unable to find; others can appear out of the blue. Adam Silvera portrays this in the book which brings loveliness to the story. It also shows that even in the shortest of time you are still able to create unbreakable bonds.

The Death Cast is a service that calls you on the day you are going to die to inform you that it is your last day. The purpose of this is to allow people to spend their last day with family, friends or however is meaningful for them. “Leaving means living before you die,”  and this is exactly what the Death Cast gives deckers (people who have on last day) the chance to do. The Death Cast allows Mateo to step out of his comfort zone and truly live one last time. This quote from sums up what Rufus and Mateo strive to do, which the reader is able to go on the journey with them. This concept in the book brings a compelling sadness to the story, but it allows the characters to say their last goodbye, and grieve for the living.

The book is written in multiple perspectives which gives the reader insight into the rest of the world. Both Rufus and Mateo are going through pain, and the other perspectives show that they aren’t the only ones. You get to see the perspectives of Death Cast callers and their mental struggle of their job and deckers and their choices when they receive the call. It shows that people who are famous can’t cheat death or that even with piles of money you aren’t able to pay away it too. My favourite perspectives were the ones that Mateo and Rufus had impacted even though they small events they still left a mark. Each short perspective added its own little story and they all fit together to create one big emotional one.

“No matter how we live, we both die at the end.” They both die at the end is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. Overall the book is carefully written to take you through all the emotions. It is full of sorrow, joy, sincerity and passion. Each event and character add to the book to make it a wonderful read.  By picking up the book you enter a whirlwind of emotions that will stick with you long after you have completed the book.

My shoes create a crisp crunch each time they make contact with the cracked concrete that is littered with leaves. The colours on each leaf dance together whether it is a perfectly timed tango or a dazzling disco it doesn’t matter because it looks spectacular. Cheerfully the vibrant orange, red and yellow that is found on every leaf scream that Autumn is here. Sneakily reminding you that Jack frost is just around the corner. I know that I have reached my destination because the smell of fruit flies through the brisk morning air. The street has tall wooden stalls standing proud offering their products. Oranges, apples, pears, blackberries full all the wooden crates to the brim. Interestingly enough Sally’s sausage stall is sizzling away, and the aroma of sausage .

It is

The banned word challenge

I watch as the gloominess coats the deserted street that lays before me, spreading its freezing touch across the silent town. The old clock stands alone; over the years it has developed a slight lean. Even at this inky hour you can still see the wear and tear that is present. The clock’s hand reaches the three letting the town know that witching hour has struck. Everyone has hidden themselves into their homes from the masked creatures. The rumours of the supernatural figures spread across the town like a wild fire. Each story that is told is exaggerated each time it is passed on. The rumours start for a reason, many think it is mist that clings to this town, and how it has mastered tricking the eye. The warmth that hugs the house their to protect me from the horrors outside. The glow from out side casts mysterious shadows across my room. The glass pane that stares back at me is what help keeps to the creatures from the uncertain world on the other side. It closes me off to the world giving me a chance to let my thoughts take over. They swirl through me as the peaceful yet spine-chilling scene continues on. Abandoning my post I close the blinds to truly shut me out from the early frosty morning.

Comercial animal testing should be banned.

Comercial animal testing is is causing the animals pain and suufering therefore it should be banned world wide. Throughout history humans have continuesoly experminted and tested on animals for our benifit. When we are testing product on animals we are inflicting harmful injurys and death. Many things are places in their eyes; to do this anilmals such as rabbaits have their eyes fored open. We expose them to chemicals just so we can understand the effects that might occcur, and to see if a product is dangerous. Each year over 100 million animals dies in labortories in Americia, and 95% of tests that were proved safe on animals were still harmful to humans. This shows that animal testing isnt allways effective, and the animals still have to go through the tests. It is clear that comericial animal testing is not worth the results if we are severly harming animals. Technology is improving, and their are other ways to test products that dont cause any animal pain.

5min Think

Is love an invention created by humans?

No, I think love is a label we gave a strong emotion. It is not something we have created, it is something that we feel. Not all animals feel love only some do. Some don’t panterner up for live. For example pray mantises eat the father of their child.

5 Minute Think

Is a white sheet of paper more blank than a black sheet of paper?

Well, paper is not naturally white or black. To get a piece of paper the white shade it is, they bleach it. In result of this a white piece of paper is not black because of the soaking of bleach. When it comes to black paper it is bleached first then dyed to get the black colour. So a black piece of paper is less blank than a white piece.

5 Minute Think

If I’m being kind to you but you think I’m being horrible , am I being kind or not?

In this question it asks can you think you are being kind, but someone doesn’t see it that way, and I think that it is possible. This is because sometimes your intentions may be good and kind, but they might not see it. Also in someone’s mind they could be being mean and someone else could think differently. That’s because people can take things the wrong way or interpret someone’s actions.
