Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin

Wow! What a great book! I really enjoyed “Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow,” by Gabrielle Zevin. This book is a love story, but it is more than romantic love. I would classify it as literary fiction, with some nostalgic 90s historical fiction, but ultimately it is about growing up from elementary school to college to our first job and then to the time as an adult.

The story is told through three central characters, Sam, Sadie and Marks, and their friendship and eventual partnership when Sam challenges his childhood friend Sadie to make a video game with him. They drop out of college before their senior year and devote all of their time to make a groundbreaking game. They start their own company with Sam as Game Designer and Sadie as Game Programmer and Marks as the Game Producer.

The novel then follows their lives through the ups and downs of success in business and then flops and then their own personal tragedy. Throughout the challenges, they seem to miss each other, understand each other, and then are driven apart. But over and over, they find one another again.

This book evoked much emotion in me as I read it and struggled along through it with them in the various crises and struggles and how they deal with their insecurity or depression or disabilities, when from an outsider’s perspective it seems so obvious. There were some powerful themes throughout the book and how someone might react to one thing or another but because there was honest discussion one character or the other made assumptions and jumped to conclusions about the reasons that motivated them. This is definitely a book I recommend and would likely read again.
