Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin

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.

In this exhilarating novel by the best-selling author of The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry two friends—often in love, but never lovers—come together as creative partners in the world of video game design, where success brings them fame, joy, tragedy, duplicity, and, ultimately, a kind of immortality.

I read this and I enjoyed most of it, but I realize it has not stuck with me as much as most books that are this long. I see that Fikry came out as movie this year, so I am going to watch it before I decide to read the book or not. I did like Zevin's book Elsewhere, but I find the same issue, I don't remember much about the actual story.

This book destroyed me.

So I really liked this book as I was reading it, but at the end when thinking back on it I feel emotionally manipulated. The story was nice, but the constant raising of the emotional stakes started to turn me off around Sadie's seemingly deliberate misreading of Sam's intentions.

I just read this book for a book club, and came away not entirely sure if I enjoyed it or not. I definitely responded to it emotionally (by basically crying through the last third of the book), but there were times when it read more like a plot synopsis than a novel. I did finish it within a day without intending to, though, so that says something!
