Discussion Questions for They Both Die At The End

  1. Would you want to know when your last day was if you were able?
  2. If you knew it was your last day, would you do anything differently? Why or why not?
  3. What did you think of the romantic storyline between Mateo and Rufus?
  4. Most of the story is told from Mateo or Rufus’ point of view, yet some of the chapters switch to seemingly “random” other characters. Why do you think the author did this? Did it enhance the story for you at all?
  5. Despite knowing he’s going to die, Mateo doesn’t want to tell Lidia when he goes to see her one last time. If you knew you were going to die, would you tell anyone? Why or why not?
  6. How did the story challenge you to contemplate your own life and death?
  7. How did you feel about the ending of the book? Were you hoping for something different?
