History Is All You Left Me – Adam Silvera

So, History Is All You Left Me has been my second book by Adam Silvera. I like his style quite a lot and also the issues he addresses in his books nevertheless, I didn’t enjoy this one as much as More Happy Than Not. The reason for this is, that the whole story seems to be a little too far-fetched and there’s also a lot of going back and forth between different characters which are probably meant to be plot-twists, yet none of them come surprisingly to an attentive reader. The same goes for the ending, to be honest.

In short, History Is All You Left Me is a bit too predictable, too sugar-coated and at times too overdramatic for my taste.

Silvera’s style though is, as aforementioned, very good and easy to read, since he has this stunning fluency in his language that keeps you turning page after page.

Therefore, I could easily picture this book to be a nice summer-read, because of the easy-going vibe, but I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it to someone who really wants to get lost in a story.
