A 'like' not 'love' for me. I really wanted to love it, but it was so reminiscent of other books I've read (The Interestings, The Startup Wife) and even TV (Mythic Quest), I couldn't quite detach from those. Still, an engaging story and complex characters. Could have done with more Marx.

Caroline2 Ohhh that‘s disappointing 🫤 2d
Caroline2 I just got the startup wife on kindle… 🤔 2d
squirrelbrain Yeah, I thought the same. So many Littens have LOVED this one, and I did really like it, but it won‘t trouble my top books of the year. 1d

I wasn't sure if I would like this one. It centers on video games and creating video games and since I'm not really interested in video games, I didn't know if I would enjoy the book. But I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. It's an unconventional love story and I appreciated the book's depiction of a young man with a physical disability.

Truly enjoyed this audio. At first the narration seemed a little stilted, staccato but it fit. I walked, ran, weeded, knit to this to keep at it. Very good story following two and then three friends through their tomorrows together…

This was a great read and my favorite cover of the year (so far at least). Fully developed characters who were quirky, intelligent, and full of personality, feelings, and opinions like real people. I feel like I know Sam and Sadie, the two main characters who we were introduced to as young children and follow through to adulthood with a stop at Harvard along the way. Zevin unfolds their backstories in an natural way that made me want to know more!

I really loved this book. Given the video game aspects I was worried I would be lost, but this book is more about friendships, love and life‘s tribulations which makes it for everyone. I finished this last night and have a feeling its themes and characters will stay with me for a long time. Highly recommend!! All the ⭐️ #botm

Finished this one 2 weeks ago & I can't stop thinking about it.
A story spanned over decades, about love, friendship, self love and grief of loved ones. (Which is so relatable & really tugs on my heartstrings)
It has left me struggling in a reading slump 😫
One of my favorite reads of the year!

Latest deliveries ?

I'm trying to decide whether I can use Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow as a book with a palindromic title... it's not technically a palindrome BUT it is "palindromic" if you think of the words as letters... which would be in keeping with the essence of the prompt for #pop22

A mixed bag for me. Part of me loved the complicated relationships and gaming descriptions, but it was also exhausting because the characters are so selfish. It reminded me of The Marriage Plot (book) and Mythic Quest (TV show). (Still packing for the move!)

“Marks was a prodigious reader and he felt like Sadie might be the kind of book that one could read many times and always come away with something new.”

BarbaraBB I didn‘t think of The Marriage Plot but I see the connection. 2w
AvidReader25 @BarbaraBB they are certainly not the exact same, but I kept remembering that book while reading this. The relationships between the main characters felt similar. 2w

I'm not sure what I expected, but it wasn't this. It's a story of two friends that spans 30 years, a business, relationships, and a hell of a lot of video games. It's dense and heavy at time, but also lovely and hopeful. The last quarter of the book hit with such an emotional punch that it actually left me breathless. I'm going to be thinking about this one for a long time.

A great book! Such real to life and loving characters, their story, their lives and their games. They pulled me back into the 90s, into playing adventure games on enormous computers with hardly any capacity. I laughed and cried with Sam, Sadie and Marx and they left me behind with a smile on my face.

I loved this you guys ❤

Books can provide distraction just like video games can. Escapism, a break, a chance to live in a different world - however brief.

At the heart of this book is the friendship between Sam and Sadie from childhood to adulthood.

This was the perfect book for me during a very challenging time in my life. But I think I would have loved it no matter when it showed up 😊

Sadie and Sam meet as children and bond over video games on a hospital children‘s ward (he‘s a patient, she‘s not) in the beginning of this beautiful ode to friendship. The book follows them forward to almost 40. It could easily have become maudlin or soaked in sentimentality, but Zevin avoids that. Absolutely fantastic.

I did not enjoy the author‘s previous novel, The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry, so I hesitated picking up this one. I am glad I did. The novel explores friendship, creativity, mental health, and the power of stories. Sadie and Sam meet as children and go on to design video games together in college. They start their own company, and the novel follows them through their lives. They are fully drawn characters who will stay with me for a long time.

This book is a 10 with no caveats. Drop-dead-gorgeous writing, a complex platonic love story between two, no three, friends, and it made me care deeply about a subject I had no interest in (video games.) Through all the ups and downs, a rollercoaster of emotions, this novel spoke so beautifully on friendship, craft, passion and pain (both emotional and physical) and I was blown away. Best book I‘ve read in a really long time. Loved it completely.

Memorable is the best word I can think of to describe this book. It is a deeply complex story about love, friendship, loss and depression. There are so many great quotes in the book. The story is about 3 friends who start a company, while in college, that makes video games and the professional and private life of each as they mature. Not much of a plot, this is a totally character driven story with fabulous characters. The prose is awesome.

Idk if I‘ve ever related to a character as strongly as I do to Sam. Zevin 💯 understood chronic injury and the effect it has on friendships. Plus I like that friendship is at the center of the narrative instead of romance.

Sam and Sadie connect as tweens over video games. When they reconnect in college, they team with Sam‘s roommate and build a video game empire. Zevin paints a true portrait of the joys and trials of long-term friendship. 5⭐️

My husband @HillsAndHamletsBookshop recommended this one to me so here he is with my new favorite book of the year! TOMORROW made me laugh, made me cry, absolutely broke my heart which it then artfully reassembled—it even made me want to play a video game (something I have never once enjoyed doing!). Tomorrow is the story of Sadie and Sam, two childhood friends who become creative partners over two decades defined by… (CONTINUED BELOW!)

underground_bks (Cont) success and failure, exhilarating closeness and unbearable distance, our own harsh reality and the virtual ones they build together. The result is a profound, moving, and enjoyably absorbing meditation on art and collaboration, how we survive trauma and what we make of it, and the power and complexity of friendship and love. Tomorrow is a masterpiece, and I hope you‘ll read it today. 1mo

As a gamer the last book that made me this excited with its gaming references was Ready Player One.

Sam, Sadie, and Marx are such complex, honest, and authentic characters. This book is about love, friendship, facing your fears, and following your dreams. I love how the games mentioned at times mirror actions the characters are taking in the story.

A truly wonderful read that will be one of my favorites of the year.

My first completed vacation read! It's a beautiful, if complicated, story about the many ways we can love someone. I have read reviews that say you don't have to be a gamer to enjoy this book, and I agree. However, I do think there were layers of the story that I would have appreciated more if I had any experience in that world. I also think some of the game descriptions and transcript-type sections wouldn't have seem so unnecessarily long to me.

It celebrates those rare lifetime friendships that is somehow family greater than anything DNA can detect or connect.

When you go to the bookstore for one, *maybe* two books.

Erinreadsthebooks My go-to justification for this exact scenario: “I mean, it‘s not like books go bad.” I say it to myself quite often. 😅 1mo
mdemanatee @Erinreadsthebooks I helped justify with the 10% off I earned for all year for doing the indie bookstore crawl. Lol 1mo

FINALLY! A book choice that was smart and funny and touching. I‘m not a gamer so I knew next to nothing about writing a program let alone play the game. And I found that so interesting and how she tied it to this amazing and imperfect friendship between such different people! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read for me. I love books about relationships and how they come and go and still remain strong. #doublespin #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

#wineandbooks continues albeit unplanned 😂 I opened the bottle (The Wonderful Wine Co. 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon) on Monday, but started the book on Thursday. The wine is good, maybe not one I‘d buy again, but c‘mon, that label?! (It states: “Tastes like magic hour, being right, and beating the high score”). And the book? AMAZING!! The characters are messy and real and the plot is unexpected and riveting 😁 Happy Friday, everyone!!

AmyG It‘s a great label. I love artsy, imaginative labels on wine and beer. Have a good weekend! 1mo
Aims42 @AmyG Same!! They always get my attention first, just like a swoon-worthy book cover 😁 Hope you have a nice weekend too!! 1mo
jlhammar That wine label is awesome. Really looking forward to this book. Glad to hear you're enjoying it. 1mo

This one spoke to the Gen Xer in me. Not for everyone but I loved all the characters and it delivered all the feels. ❤️ #tomorrowandtomorrowandtomorrow

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I love authors that write great characters. Interesting, complex characters that despite their flaws, you fall in love with. Characters that are human. This book is about friendship and work and art. I really loved it.

"Before Mazer invented himself as Mezar, he was Samson Mezer, and before he was Samson Masur -- a change of two letters that transformed him from a nice, ostensibly Jewish boy to a Professional Builder of Worlds -- and for most of his youth, he was Sam, S.A.M. on the hall of fame of his grandfather's Donkey Kong machine, but mainly Sam.

Now that is a run on sentence!

Soubhiville Ooooo, looking forward to this one! 1mo
TheSpineView @Soubhiville It sooo good! 1mo
