Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin Book Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • Sam and Sadie—two college friends, often in love, but never lovers—become creative partners in a dazzling and intricately imagined world of video game design, where success brings them fame, joy, tragedy, duplicity, and, ultimately, a kind of immortality. It is a love story, but not one you have read before.

"Delightful and absorbing." —The New York Times • "Utterly brilliant." —John Green
 
One of the Best Books of the Year: The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, TIME, GoodReads, Oprah Daily

From the best-selling author of The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry: 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.

These friends, intimates since childhood, borrow money, beg favors, and, before even graduating college, they have created their first blockbuster, Ichigo. Overnight, the world is theirs. Not even twenty-five years old, Sam and Sadie are brilliant, successful, and rich, but these qualities won’t protect them from their own creative ambitions or the betrayals of their hearts.

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 examines the multifarious nature of identity, disability, failure, the redemptive possibilities in play, and above all, our need to connect: to be loved and to love.

I’m actually blown away.. I finished this book in 3 days. I don’t think i’ve been this engaged with a book since I was young - I couldn’t recommend anything more.

Lackluster. This book seemed great, but ended up holding so little. Repetitive in its thoughts and slightly boring. I really wanted to like this book but I can’t. Video game talk was cool.

Wonderful book. Leaves you wishing it never ended. A beautifully written story about friendship, differences and understanding.

Boring, unless you are into video games. Moved too slow. I skipped chapters to move it along. I wouldn’t have continued if it was not for my book club. Maybe for people in their 20s & 30s I am in my 60s and found it impossibly boring

Stunning. (Trigger warning). Stunning storytelling. Fell hard for the characters who are exquisitely drawn. Was completely thrown by the devastating turn and had to put it down for weeks…perhaps there was a trigger warning I hadn’t seen. Regardless, the book is beautiful, and top of my list of recommendations.

Interesting read for a person who doesn’t game. Interesting deep dive into the world of gaming. Really enjoyed the development of the characters, their relationships and how they changed over time

What could have been….. So…there were moments of greatness and here but weighed down by filler inconsequential information! Love the theme of love and friendship and various forms it can morph into. But he excess and heavily gamer jargon was a wet blanket to a great story of lasting friendship.

An Exploration of Relationships. In this absorbing story of young friends, readers will recognize variations of classic relationship experiences. A thoughtful, brave, and very relatable exploration of close friendship, T,T, and T shows, rather than tells, some of the limits of close friendship, most of which are self-imposed. We have many lessons to learn when we are young, and part of that is understanding how we get so many things wrong within the infinite space of an intimate relationship. Wouldn’t it be great if we could just restart, play the game over again, and this time correct our mistakes? We can’t, and we will never know how those very mistakes were the origin of, or responsible for, our many successes.

I love this story. This book is moving and unexpected. The characters—Sam, Sadie, and Marx—are compelling. Now that I’ve finished I want to read it again. It’s that good.

Best book I’ve read in a long time. Captivating from start to finish!

Truly amazing. Probably one of the best books I’ve ever read

Everyone should read this book. Wonderful. Going to read it for a second time. The writer is incredible.

Absolutely Brilliant. Couldn’t put it down.

Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow. Best book I have read in a year!! Loved every page.

What Goes Unsaid. Gabrielle Zevin left no stone unturned, bandage in-place, or social trope in her inventory while delivering an electric novel. Books like this are as complete a dialogue about life and all of its pain, joy, and the mess in-between. Like a reflection in an indigo lake, her characters fascination with being gamers, mirrors why some of us are readers. Though we see events from many stages of life, it’s Zevin’s exploration of the uncertainty and anxiety of youth that serves as a driving theme in the story. Specifically, the almost violent point where the idealized perceptions of youth meet the compromising reality and judgements of the world. On a deeper level we see how the singular passion of youth occasionally manifests as creative genius. For many there is a treasure chest of topics to enjoy in the video gaming world she builds for us. Including the highs, lows, and intricacies of the gamer’s experience. I am particularly enthralled by Zevin’s leveraging video games as a larger representation of every fascinating and depressing thing about the real world. We are challenged to weigh the pros and cons between the two “realities” and how we face life in each. Zevin’s voice and characterizations are refreshing and hard to shake. Her style crafts the kind of story that puts the joy in reading. It’s the book you wish could write and our glad to have read. Her masterful use of the omnipotent perspective gives us characters with real depth and dynamic qualities. The themes blend perfectly together pulling us from one revelation to another. As Zevin clearly states this book is a love song in many respects. A love song to artists and makers as well as the creative process. For me it was a reminder that life is for living, here and now. That if we are present and fully engaged we will see the magnificence of being and, when the end comes, exude the gratefulness that it happened at all.

Unique and wonderful. The only book I’ve ever read that uses gaming as an allegory for life. A bittersweet, heartbreaking, yet hopeful story. One of my favorite books of the year.

Didn’t like it. Not my favorite book

Genius. I loved this book. When I fell into it, I fell into it HARD. Gabrielle Zevin is a genius and a master of words and thoughts and ideas. This was brilliant, sharp, fun and hopeful. I know I will think of this book for a long time to come.

Good read. Loved this book but the ending 🫤

This book drives me crazy. To start, this is by far one of the best books I have ever read. Being a gamer myself, I enjoyed how the author pulled many aspects of gaming to include great triumphs, loss, and even death but yet somehow was able to twist it into the lessons that intertwine the reality we live in today. 10/10

Amazing. I fell in love with the characters. Excellent from start to finish. Best book I have read in a while.

What?. I don’t know what I read. Book didn’t really have a point and most characters were deeply unlikeable.

Incredible!. I’m not a gamer at all (I’m honestly pretty averse to video games) and still greatly enjoyed this. You can’t help but fall in love with the characters and root for them until the end.

The ending?. Anticlimactic. The relationship between Sadie and Sam was strange and hard to grasp. It felt like a very slow read.

Cool book. Really cool book you should write more about this book characters really cool easy to flow with the storyline.

Very slow plot. Couldn’t finish.. While it is a short read, I could not find the hook in the story. I can understand why some people may enjoy it but it reads like a biography and is not for me.

Not good, not bad. I felt some of the relationships in the book were contrived and there was much character development as would be expected. I didn’t laugh, I didn’t cry. I felt tired and hopeful. By the last 20 pages, I wanted it to end. When it did end, I was a little disappointed with the ending.

Move this to the top of your reading list.. This is an incredible and moving story, prepare yourself to fall in love with these characters and to have them break your heart. I’m in no way a gamer, so don’t let that deter you from losing yourself in this story

Great. Just a fantastic read. Sad it ended.

Bored. A struggle to get through.

Simply Amazing and …. And perhaps “the” love story for the Oregon Trail generation!

A must read. Favorite book of 2022!!!!

Brilliant but not my style. The author is an incredible writer. I just wished I liked the characters better. I don’t read fiction that often but admire the authors grasp of the English language. I just read a gentleman in Moscow. Tough competition.

Not worth reading!!!. This story had huge potential. Some of the feelings Sam had about Sadie were very well described but unfortunately didn’t really go anywhere. The plot took an odd turn halfway through (became difficult to follow and hard to enjoy). The story went on way longer than it had to. Really a disappointing read!

Wow. Just gorgeous.

What If?. The story was well-conceived, and shared with the reader many of the dimensions of the gaming, and the creative, experience. It did so honestly, and paralleled Fikry’s style of rich and complicated people intersecting and drifting apart. It was easy to locate oneself in the text. Those intersections where richly-imagined characters met were the primary focus of the writing, and threw sparks while they invited the sharing of paths. The novel blurred the boundaries between the lived and the imagined, and preferred neither. This was a tale worth telling.

Meh. This felt like a saga to me - like, there’s no big rising action to a big payout in the end. It’s more little stories cobbled together over years and stays pretty flat. Maybe you’re into that sort of thing. It’s just not something I enjoy. Then, add to that, characters that aren’t really likeable and an oddly-rushed ending, and I was just glad it was over. I grew up in this time period and expected to love it because it was about video games, but I guess I was expecting something more like Ready Player One. Oh well.

Did Compute. Enjoyed the characters and the story. Kept me going. Got a bit bogged down in places…

Surprisingly touching.. I can’t find words to describe how this book made me feel, but I’ll try. The writing is absolutely lovely. Poetic and haunting. The imperfectly flawed characters felt like friends. I will genuinely miss reading about them. I highlighted so many lines that spoke directly to me. I never would have thought a book about gaming could move me as much as this one did. I loved it.

Beautiful.. It was just beautiful. I’m amazed but sad it’s over.

in awe. one of the most amazing books I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.

I’m not a gamer but now I wish I was. Wow! I’m overwhelmed with the creative storytelling and intimate character development. This touched on so much of the late 90s when I was a single mom and trying to keep all the balls in the air.

Fell flat. Started great then fell very flat and boring half way through. The characters never resolved their issues with one another. Felt like the author decided to make political statements in the middle of the novel.

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Like so many other readers, I grew up a gamer … and I still found this book incredibly boring! Seriously, this was an absolutely agonizing book to read. If my book club didn’t pick it, I would have quit it early on. So very disappointing.

OverHyped. The toxic life of Sadie Green (Spoiler Alert) To me personally this book was over hyped. At several points in the the book I was like are we really going there. I mean it was she had a checklist she had while she was writing it. Examples: Toxic relationships, homophobia, racism, sexism, gun violence, and much more. Honestly a lot of it just through the book of track. She could have used these topics properly, but it just the writer was just as toxic as her characters. Some examples throughout it was: +“She said that marriage was an antiquated institution that oppressed women. ” I saw this like three to four times throughout reading it. + “So, like, all you have to do is own your own company?” “Right. Then the men have to do what you want,” Sadie said. +“I’m the seventh Anna Lee in Equity.” +“There are a million Anna Lees in this town,” +“Even if there were “a million Anna Lees,” Then you even have an Instructor having a relationship with one of his students while being married to another women and child. Even after Sadie he was having relationships with many other students. + I also found it funny how Sadie called Kojima out for being sexist, but plays Leisure Suit Larry. Leisure suit Larry is far worst in the sexist department than Metal Gear Solid just Google it. “I don’t want to play a game that’s a collection of some guy’s fetishes,” Oh but you do Sadie. And that is just a little bit of toxicity throughout the book. I definitely wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone. The main reason I even finished reading this book because of Sam. I knew he wasn’t going to get the girl at the end, but it was nice to see his character to the end. Also, she just throws a bunch of game titles throughout the book. I would say this is more from a programmer’s side of the gaming which I really did enjoy.

Don’t waste your time. Interesting concept- goes on and on for too long- gets too political, should’ve ended the book long before it actually ends.

Underwhelming. Everyone in book club has raved about this book. I was excited to crack it open and it reads okay but I’m not invested. I kinda like the characters but I just don’t care about them or this game they’re creating. For some reason the relationships between the characters are off putting, and I can’t figure out if that was a purposeful choice. I am extremely disturbed by Dov and Sadie’s relationship its evolution seems twisted and borderline gross. And I’m frustrated with our helpless protagonist, who seems put upon, life just happens to him and it’s like he doesn’t have the will or desire to make it better. And just when I start to feel compassion for him, he becomes the villain for another character. And as the book progresses I really don’t like Sadie! How can she be friends with Dov, a completely toxic character, and hate Sam? And then Sadie and Marx inevitably become a thing which forces Sam to reinvent himself as Mazur, all these characters are just weird, but are self aware of their issues and quirks, unfortunately that doesn’t redeem them for me. One positive thing I could say about the book is it has lots of great vocabulary, and I appreciate the features of the literary canon. There is also this existential conversation around life just being a game being played by greater maybe just larger being. That our world and lives are being manipulated by gamers. All in all, I was underwhelmed.

Beautifully Written, Poetic, and Wonderful. From the world building of the video games to the complex and ultimately devastatingly real and beautiful relationships to the characters, this will stay with you. If you buy something, buy this book.

Trite twee mush. Limp sit-com. Self-conscious and shallow. Straining to be emotional. Meh

Great start, but died off. This book was interesting to start but for majority of it, it felt like I was just reading a timeline of a gaming company. Nothing felt significant or made me want to continue reading. The battle between Sadie and Sam just became annoying and I lost my interest in the characters…
