Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin

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


THIS WAS SO GOOD, and my only wish is that I was a gamer — I mean, I already got so much out of this book, EFFING LOVED IT, but if  I was a gamer this probably would have opened some another level (pun intended).

I loved how all the characters were developed, and all their flaws were sometimes so unlovable yet understandable, human, they frustrated me so much yet I would have done anything for them. I also loved how just like in real life, there are no happily ever afters — human lives are a flow, and this book perfectly depicted that.

Spoiler I'm also happy that Sam and Sadie never ended up dating (at least in the written story, who knows about their future?) — I wouldn't have been very against that either as I loved them both, but it was a fresh and realistic view to have them be just friends and fall out of touch for years. 

This book was so emotional, but what finally made me cry was Dong Hyun's funeral and how HE LEFT THE DONKEY KONG MACHINE FOR SADIE. I'm crying again just thinking about it.
