Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

This is not a romance, but it is about love.

Two kids meet in a hospital gaming room in 1987. One is visiting her sister, the other is recovering from a car crash. The days and months are long there. Their love of video games becomes a shared world—of joy, escape and fierce competition. But all too soon that time is over, fades from view.

When the pair spot each other eight years later in a crowded train station, they are catapulted back to that moment. The spark is immediate, and together they get to work on what they love—making games to delight, challenge and immerse players, finding an intimacy in digital worlds that eludes them in their real lives. Their collaborations make them superstars.

This is the story of the perfect worlds Sadie and Sam build, the imperfect world they live in and of everything that comes after success: money. Fame. Duplicity. Tragedy.

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow takes us on a dazzling imaginative quest as it examines the nature of identity, creativity, disability, failure, the redemptive possibilities in play and, above all, our need to connect: to be loved and to love.

highly recommend!

though I took too long to finish, THIS WAS AMAZING ALTOGETHER! Narration was FANTASTIC. My most favourite part was the voice change for just a chapter of Marx, it was essential.

This book blew my mind!

This book is like a video game that I want to keep playing. The characters have become dear to me, and their worlds now seem like mine. Fabulously written and wonderfully narrated. The chapters that stood out for me were the ones where Marx is speaking and the one where the reader is playing Pioneer. Novel concept, important subjects, poignant storylines - no wonder this book won Best Book of 2022 on Goodreads. Hats off to the author and everyone involved.

Beautiful experience

I am glad I listened to this book. This is my first Zevin work & I am fascinated by how smoothly the narration goes taking us along the amazing characters Sam, Sadie & Marks - how they meet a kids and grow into capable adults, some more than the others. I couldn't bring myself to pause the book it kept me so involved. This book is gonna win a few awards.

A future classic

Its like reading a classic. The future generations are gonna look at this book the way we look at pride and prejudice.
The shift in the narrator just for Mark's chapter was absolutely beautiful. Really made the point of 'NPC' hit home.
For someone who grew up with gaming/online culture this book is a truly unique and fantastic read.

It’s about computer game makers

I wish this had been top of the other reviews I read before I bought this. It would have meant I bought the book earlier. These are my people. And I love this book. Absolutely brilliant. Even if gamers are not your people.

A game of life.

At the star, her sibilance (isss) and plosive (puh) sounds were extremely irritating.

But, it improved a lot, and I settled into a wonderfully tender, sweet story of love, regret, and friendship.

Highly recommended. A lovely book.

Didn't finish, great start then boring

Loved the beginning but then got bored! Lots of t
telling rather than showing. Also pretentious use of words and the writing style started to annoy me. The POV changes broke the flow.

Decent Story - Worst Performance

The story was enjoyable, although has moments where it dragged. I really enjoyed all the moments where game development was talked. sadly that wasnt alot. The relationship aspects where okay, the ending itself was nice though.

Performance was the worst. From all the audiobook I've heard so far, this was by far the worst. It was super monotonous. I thought a book about video games would've put more emphasis on that stuff.

Performance is awful. The book itself has good elements and interesting story line, too bad it was so pretentious at times and far too long and self indulgent.

A game where more than 1 win

I loved the story, would recommend it to anyone who is moved by stories of friendship and coming of age. My only critique is that the last 2/3 chapters are not that exciting and slightly move away from the trajectory

Not a gamer and was still into it

I don’t game at all so I was skeptical that I wouldn’t ‘get it’ but I did. The character and relationship development was really well done and the story line is unique. I actually enjoyed learning a bit about the gaming world, as I’ve never even owned a gaming console.

Nice, easy story

I enjoyed it but it’s not gonna go down in my memory. Characters felt believable, and mostly likeable. Definitely could have told the story in 2-3 hours less time, but pretty good.

Unusual story that keeps you listening

This was a Shameless book club recommendation with a story that did not disappoint. It weaves through the lives of two best friends and their personal (and professional) relationship from childhood to adulthood. The narrator was sometimes robotic. This might have been a creative choice, but made it monotonous and hard to distinguish characters at times. Great story.

good at times but dragged at others

I hate to say it and I am shocked that my opinion is different from the masses, but I didn't love this book. It dragged. I liked the relationships between the characters and their journey from kids to game designers but the book was way longer than it needed to be. One of the narrators sounds like she is getting over a cold and her 'n' sounds were distracting. I really wanted to like it because of all the great recommendations and reviews but had to bail 2 hours short of finishing.

truly awesome

I can't sum this book up in a few words, it was different to anything I've ever read before and about a subject matter I have no interest in, yet, I loved every word of it. Treat yourself to this book, you won't regret it!
