Title: Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow
Author: Gabrielle Zevin
Genre: Literary Fiction Genre Bender
Today, and Today, and Today I am going to review Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow! I know this has book has been making a big splash this summer and probably needs no more recommendations, but I want to be another voice in the “I’m not a gamer” review column; For those that may still be on the fence and need some convincing!
Think of the gaming in the book like your job or maybe even a hobby. It’s what you do . . . Not who you are. That’s what I felt like. It was background noise that carried the story. The gaming helped to create a lot of parallels in the story. And some wonderful nostalgia too! The true story was more character driven. It was about friendship. And personal flaws. It was about love. Family that you choose. And so much more!
Sadie and Sam meet as children at a time when Sam is going through something difficult. After a whirlwind meeting and instant friendship, just as quickly they stop being friends because Sam feels betrayed by Sadie. Boy can Sam hold a grudge, so these friends don’t speak again until college; but they fall right back into their friendship like no time passed. When they met as children they bonded over video games and they decide to build their own forming a business that takes off with the help of Sam’s roommate Marx.
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ You had me at Mario jumping the flag pole and you have died of dysentery! This has been a book I haven’t been able to stop thinking about. And I’m not sure why. I can’t quite put my finger on it. I guess love these messy kind of books. It really explored people and their flaws. At times you will think Sam and Sadie’s friendship is toxic and wonder why they even stay friends. A lot of themes are explored. Sadie being a female and being less respected in the business world. Failure. Loving someone just as best friends and not crossing the line. Anyway, I really recommend this one! Thanks to my friend @mommaleighellensbooknook for recommending it to me and my friends at @aaknopf for sending me a copy!
