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

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

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.

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

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.

I really liked it but the overwhelming thing I felt was just sadness. The MC just had so much going on and it definitely got worse for her when domes truth bombs were dropped so I just was left kind of feeling sorry for her. I still liked the whole premise and honestly think it will be something one day offered.
Good, interesting read!

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.

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

Awesome premise, but there was a lot of other drama going on that maybe didn't need to be. I don't know. This was good but I wish it had been more gut-punching.

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.

No One Here Is Lonely was so great! Sarah Everett came up with a really interesting idea and I didn’t see the twist coming.

I don’t really know what rating to give this book
I connected with and could really relate to the main character I wanted to put my arms around her the whole time 🤗
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.

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
In an interesting projection of what life may be like in the future, this novel covers some familiar territory while also touching on all that may be new and strange when it comes to relationships. After her long-time crush, Will, dies right before graduation, Eden is devastated by the loss. She's also confused at the changes she sees in her best friend, Lacey, who is no longer available to talk to her and is hanging with a very different crowd. After she brings Will's jacket to his mother, the ...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

This book was beautiful and heartbreaking, and I might’ve cried once or twice while reading it. I loved everything about it, from beginning to end.

I read this book about a month ago, so I don't quite recall my pure reaction anymore. I just remember knowing, at the very start of the book, that this one was going to break me emotionally. It's difficult to place into a genre, so I'll just say that it's a book about coping with loss and life transitions, with the addition of a futuristic technology that allows people to record themselves digitally and be assigned as Companions to anyone who's willing to pay. For a fee, anyone can sign up for a ...more

Beware of some mild spoilers, I guess?

Reminiscent of the Black Mirror episode where the main character's partner dies, but by using their voice clips and providing access to their social media accounts, their partner's personality is uploaded to a new technology that allows the main character talk to their deceased loved one on the phone, and, eventually, in person as a sort of android. This book doesn't get as far as that Black Mirror episode, but it hits the same notes on a somewhat smaller sc
No One Here Is Lonely is unbalanced; I really love Everett’s writing and the characters, relationships, and dialogue are all rich and heartfelt, but its central ambitious premise doesn’t live up to expectations.

The idea of being able to talk to a digital version of a deceased loved one isn’t bad—in fact, it could be downright heartbreaking. But something about this novel didn’t sell it for me; perhaps what is established of Eden and Will’s friendship when the latter was alive wasn’t enough for

“A flustered-looking woman hurries after him, but he doesn’t stop. I turn around to watch, silently rooting the kid on. I want to crouch down beside him and tell him to use the tunnel, to keep flying through the dark while he’s still allowed. “When’s the last time we did that?” I ask Lacey when we reach my car, and she shrugs. 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
