This book title is a lie. A lie, I tell you. Because after reading this, I felt very lonely.

First, let's discuss the characters. I liked them all. Especially Will. Something I liked about this book was that I could really feel the grief and sadness Eden was feeling after Will's death. I'd be devastated too. Imagine this: You've been in love with a boy for so long, then suddenly he's gone. He's not coming back, and you didn't do anything. You didn't even try to make a move. Imagine the regret you

This was one of my most interested in 2019 YA releases and after learning that my local library's audiobook service had the audio, I was keen to jump in and give the story a try. Almost straight away, I started to have a strong dislike for the cast of characters. Lacey in particular acted quite snarky and bitchy towards main character and her best friend Eden. That was not to say that Eden herself wasn't a nice person either. She sounde

NO ONE HERE IS LONELY was getting pretty bad reviews from other reviewers, but surprisingly, I actually thought it was okay. I can definitely see why some people wouldn't like it-- it's a strange book, and not a very happy one-- but I thought it did a good job showing what it can feel like to find yourself stagnating from social anxiety while also trying to deal with grief.

In this book, Eden, the heroine, is trying to get over the death

ok there’s a lot to unpack here.
i keep switching between 3 & 4 stars because a lot of the concepts reflect real life & i like that, but there’s also a lot going on & not everything is articulated in the absolute best way it can be. so i definitely get the overwhelming amount of 3 star reviews.

there is a loss of translation between the events/aspects the author wants readers to experience & the reality in the way they are translated through the writing style. i do feel a big disconnect towa

This book was okay. I think I probably would have liked it more if I were still in middle school or maybe even high school. I picked it up because I liked the premise of being able to talk to a deceased friend who's essence is captured online but it wasn't so much about that as it was about a young girl heading off to college and needing to find herself. It had a good message. ...more

When I first picked up this book, I was struggling to get through it but once I focused all my attention on it I quickly breezed through it.

The story follows Eden who has lost someone she loved. After getting a mysterious number, she discovers that her loved one's voice is being used through a service which helps people grief by talking to their dead loved ones.

This plot was really intriguing and initially reminded me of Black Mirror. The story feels like a coming-of-age as Eden disco

BLECH. Let's take an episode of "Black Mirror" and castrate it by starring a whiny, pitiful, pathetic, sap of a character. Eden was downright detestable and I can't blame Lacey for trying to get out from under THAT wet blanket.

Best moment: "omg I got SoOoOOo drunk at a party by drinking tHrEe bEeRs and now I'm going to hurl my entire guts out but then somehow /still/ be hungover the next morning!" Yo that just ain't how any of this works, lightweight. And I was just waiting for her calls to Will

DNF, which is sad because I was really looking forward to this one. I got a few chapters in but the writing style wasn't appealing; it was bland and lackluster. The MC was already grating on my nerves as being codependent. This was just "too high school" for me. ...more

This novel was so different from anything I’ve ever read, and I really loved that. It was absolutely heartbreaking, and so well written. The whole companion thing was a really cool concept, something I would never have imagined in my wildest dreams. But I can see how something like that could easily become detrimental and make it so much harder for one to move forward.

Had to hold back the urge to cry in front of my co-workers... this was a very good read, and I feel like many high school students could relate to this.

This book is probably my favorite book yet. I honestly really love it, it has a lot of relatable things, and kinda speaks to you. It feels like your in the book yourself. I wholeheartedly think that many people should read this book! It's really inspiring and most people can relate to it in some ways. ...more

This is a great story with a unique premise.

In this story, there is a service called In Good Company, where people can donate their voice so that loved ones can continue to speak to them after they have died. In one way, it would be nice to still speak to the person who you’ve lost, but at the same time, it isn’t actually the same as the person. It is a computer generated voice, so they do not have the same memories as the person.

So many parts of this story were heartbreaking. Eden had difficult

I really enjoyed this book, I consumed it in a day and I really felt for Eden. This story reminded me of a cross between the film Her and 13 Reasons Why. The concept of being able to have someone be “present” by just having a voice to talk to. While there is a lot going on, I found this story to be a great read and Eden was relatable.

I connected with and could really relate to the main character I wanted to put my arms around her the whole time 🤗

I rarely come away from a book thinking, "this is how this book could have been better" but this book would have been way better if the dead guy (I don't think this is a spoiler to say, since it's in the summary) was just... alive? The phone call thing was very strange, did not feel authentic, and did not mesh with the otherwise sweet, warm tone of the book. If he had just been alive, the rest of the book could have payed out basically the same, and the interpersonal stuff could have been fleshe ...more
Everett has such a lovely writing style. I could read anything she writes. This book isn't as good as her debut, but this book made me cry. Like a lot. The subject matter is thought-provoking and heart wrenching to read through. Definitely can't wait for Everett's next book. ...more

I had a very interesting experience with this book. When I first heard about it, I got the impression that this would be a contemporary YA novel with a hint of science fiction due to someone’s consciousness and voice being recorded into a computer. And while this was definitely the case, the atmosphere within the book itself was different from what I had imagined. Yes, it’s science fiction in a sense, but it’s so seamlessly woven into the story that it felt as if it was just contemporary as well ...more

This basically just took the concept of that one Black Mirror episode and turned it into a book. It was an interesting concept for a TV episode, but didn’t pan out to be the greatest book I’ve read. Characters are kind of annoying and plot was tired because I’ve already seen this before. That being said, it’s definitely not the worst thing I’ve ever read. Just kind of neither here nor there, hence the three stars. I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to recommend it, but it’s not the worst thing ...more

Then I’m starting the car and tears prick the backs of my eyes and I hate that so many Lasts happen when you aren’t paying attention.” 1 likes
