A tale that follows friends through multiple coming-of-age stages over 25 years. 

Unique plot based around video games, which may put some people off, but like books, the games are stories and have sublime scenery that draw on Japanese, Korean, Jewish and American Culture. 

Clever, but another book where you want to bang the two leads’ heads together. The “in love but not lovers” trope is getting a little tedious. 

I found the first half cliche and starting to drag, but it was almost redeemed in the second half until Sadie’s closing monologue moaning about Gen Z.
