Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow Review

This book was beautiful. First of all, it tickled my gamer heart. I found it easy to follow based solely on my love for gaming. Aside from the nerd, it was a great story and I found it to be completely captivating. There were some not so great moments, like Sadie getting back with Dov in order to make Ichigo happen. However, I do not believe Sadie is your average woman, she went to him knowing she needed his program in order to achieve the look and feel she needed for Ichigo, and I think Sadie was incredibly brave and a Pioneer (heh see what I did there) in her field. While her relationship with Dov was sour, it was real. It’s a real thing that happens to women, especially women in a male dominated industry. But she manages to leave him and start a whole damn gaming company, and damn I’m proud of her. Sam and Marx were pretty great characters, too. Sam’s dismissal of his injury made perfect sense. Everyone wants to believe they’re fine and they don’t need help even when they most definitely do. And Marx, well Marx was simply perfect for Sadie. He was a great balance to her pessism and independcy. Reading his POV from the coma fully wrecked me, as did reading the rest of the story to see how both Sam and Sadie grieved Marx. 5 out of 5 stars for this one, a great read and I understand how it won best fiction on Goodreads last year.
