Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow
by Gabrielle Zevin
Book Review by Kristine Madera
I’m in the five-star camp on this one because the characters and their interactions and complications seem so much like they might in real life, which is to say messy and somewhat dysfunctional yet redeeming in a quiet way.
Not being a gamer, learning about the gaming aspect was interesting rather than off-putting, and has me wondering if there might be a game or two out there that I might be interested in playing–I’d always thought games were either about shooting/fighting or domination of some sort and never through there were ones where you might have interesting interactions with other avatars that were about more than trying to hurt them or partnering with them to hurt someone else.
After I got oriented, I thought that the second-person “you” segment was quite well done and important to the story as a whole in that it would have been lacking something without it.
I also like that the book wasn’t very predictable in a story sense, though readers would obviously assume relationship ups and downs.
This is my first read by Gabrielle Zevin but it won’t be my last for sure!
