“No, you’ll never die and if you ever died, I’d just start the game again.”
“The boredom you speak of… It is what most of us call happiness.”
“Sometimes, I would be in so much pain. The only thing that kept me from wanting to die was the fact that I could leave my body and be in a body that worked perfectly for a while – better than perfectly, actually- with a set of problems that were not my own.”
Imperfectly perfect.That’s how I’d describe Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow, Sam and Sadie start out as two imperfect teens and live messy lives both just hoping to get it “right.” Their journey through friendship and video games teaches them that there is no “right” path, just the one you took.
“Lovers are… common… true collaborators in this life are rare.”
This book will probe your heart deeply. You will feel so many feelings for Sadie and Sam, both dealing with sadness, pain and tragedy – trying to escape their lives in fantasy worlds of their own making. Their games sound so fun and entertaining while their lives sound like exactly what you’d want to escape. And yet, you can see so clearly the ways they could change their path and choose not to. This was one of those books I didn’t want to end. I want a sequel or a TV series or something that lets me live with these characters a little longer. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐
