In this exhilarating novel by the best-selling author of The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry two friends—often in love, but never lovers—come together as creative partners in the world of video game design, where success brings them fame, joy, tragedy, duplicity, and, ultimately, a kind of immortality.

On a bitter-cold day, in the December of his junior year at Harvard, Sam Masur exits a subway car and sees, amid the hordes of people waiting on the platform, Sadie Green. He calls her name. For a moment, she pretends she hasn’t heard him, but then, she turns, and a game begins: a legendary collaboration that will launch them to stardom.

They borrow money, beg favors, and, before even graduating college, they have created their first blockbuster, Ichigo: a game where players can escape the confines of a body and the betrayals of a heart, and where death means nothing more than a chance to restart and play again. This is the story of the perfect worlds Sam and Sadie build, the imperfect world they live in, and of everything that comes after success: Money. Fame. Duplicity. Tragedy.
Spanning thirty years, from Cambridge, Massachusetts, to Venice Beach, California, and lands in between and far beyond, Gabrielle Zevin’s Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow is a dazzling and intricately imagined novel that examines the multifarious nature of identity, games as artform, technology and the human experience, disability, failure, the redemptive possibilities in play, and above all, our need to connect: to be loved and to love. Yes, it is a love story, but it is not one you have read before.

“Brilliant,” said the NPC as he finally lay down the book.

I don’t know what to say, most of the reviews say the book is a little too long and goes on and on, but I don’t think so. This lays out trauma, friendships and success perfectly. Life sucks even when it’s really good.

I don't care even a little for video games, this book is so good I miss the characters. It could be any business. It is the growth and development of the characters. No one character is more important than another you care about them all. Narration is perfect. Give it a try.

I found it a little long and a little slow in parts. I found myself liking the characters less as the book progressed

Enjoyed this book. A few parts where it slowed a bit, but overall the character development was excellent and I felt compelled to keep going-even when my commute was over!

I’m a 50 something year old woman with little to no gaming experience but loved this book. Very well written.

Almost immediately I felt a strong connection with Sam and Sadie, and near the end I sensed dread at the prospect of not having Sam, Sadie, & Marx in my ear, I love them! Even as a non-gamer I was drawn into the appeal of both playing and creating game worlds, and I unexpectedly found Shakespeare profound in a whole new light. I didn’t expect to find classics literature interwoven with references to Mario and Donkey Kong. Ultimately a fantastic telling of friendship across a lifetime.

I thought it was very long. If you are not a gamer and no nothing about gaming it is very tedious. However, The story and characters are good.

Maybe if I was a gamer I’d like it more but I’m giving it a 2.75. Totally lost me at about the 3/4 part. But it did have a sweet story. Sorry it’s not for me !!

I love this book but I don’t know that I would have actually finished it if I had read it. I had to listen to it. And I couldn’t stop listening to it. The story is wonderful on so many levels and the audio is so well done!
