A review by thewickermage
Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin

emotional hopeful sad tense medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Gabrielle had me hooked in the first half and it was a strong contender for favourite book of the year. She lost me in the second half and I found the relationships and the rest of the plot fell flat. 

I don't think the character of Sadie was as fleshed out as she could have been. I had a lot of sympathy for Sam and what he was going through, but found the more we learned about Sadie through her interactions and eventual relationship with
Spoiler Marx
I found I grew to find her annoying and petty with a bit of "main character" syndrome. Suffice it to say that I didn't understand everyone being enamoured by Sadie Green. Strong start, but I feel it got derailed around halfway through.
