Publisher Description

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.

Expressionless Face“Honestly, this book wasn't my favorite and it was hard to get through. I felt the storyline was all over the place, and I was hoping for a good ending, but it was kinda just blah. The characters didn't really tie me in other than Marx. I thought the ending would tie everything together, or it would have a better explanation of the whole story.”

Thumbs Up“I really loved this book. I don’t know that I’ve read any other characters that are more well-developed. I loved learning about their backgrounds, and felt the frustrations when they made poor decisions. I enjoy me a good fast-paced novel, but for this story, the span of years was the perfect choice. I found myself wanting more when I finished.”

Red Angry Face“This book was…deeply okay. I thought it started out really strong, as it had that “five star feeling” in the first half. I loved the characters and their complicated relationships with each other, and I thought the timeline was realistic. That is, until Sadie and Marx happened. This book took me so long to read because I was genuinely so upset by Sadie and Marx that I had to put it down for about two weeks. It felt so unnecessary that the two of them got together, and the only thing it did was drive a wedge further into Sam and Sadie. I liked Marx, his break-up with Zoe was unnecessary and a clear motive to pitch him with Sadie. And the pregnancy? I’m so tired of female characters constantly getting pregnant. This was completely unnecessary. I get that it was supposed to make us feel more devastated by Marx’s death but…it honestly just made me even more angry. I’m so upset with the course that this book took and was entirely unsatisfied by the end. This is the first time the “what we almost had but lost” trope did not make me cry, but made me want to throw the book across the room. I liked the writing and the picture of complicated relationships, but I think Marx and Sadie should’ve stayed friends. Not saying Sadie and Sam should’ve ended up together, but not Sadie and Marx. I’m honestly debating with myself on keeping this book on my shelf. 3.25 stars.”

Anxious Face with sweat“2023 Read #10 https://fable.co/club/shelf-indulgence-book-club-with-annmarie-ironfield-296054379952?invite=3c9cf37d-3b19-43d6-9108-77de14721e5a&referralID=VyntxxTgzN I went into this book not really knowing what it was about, but several people had recommended it to me, so I decided to select it for our first book club read. I don't consider myself to be lacking in the vocabulary department, but I did find I was looking up a lot of definitions as I read. The use of uncommon words did not bother me though, I felt it lent a pretentious air to the characters in a way that was fitting for their personalities. I ended up really feeling for the characters and wanting them to succeed and be happy.”
