Una apasionante historia sobre los videojuegos, la amistad y la superación

Un gélido día de diciembre de su primer año en Harvard, Sam Masur sale de un vagón de metro y ve, entre las hordas de gente que esperan en el andén, a Sadie Green. La llama a gritos. Por un momento, ella hace como que no lo ha oído, pero entonces se vuelve y empieza la partida: una colaboración legendaria que los lanzará al estrellato. Piden dinero prestado, favores y, antes incluso de graduarse, firman su primera superproducción: Ichigo, un juego en el que uno puede escapar de los confines del cuerpo y las traiciones del corazón, en el que la muerte no significa más que una oportunidad para recomenzar y volver a jugar.

Beautiful and heartbreaking and tragic

5 stars

A wonderfully written story about the adult years of growing up, on a backdrop of the intense creative processes of video game design. I want these games to be real. I want to feel the characters expression through their art.

There are books where it’s a novel situation played out through understandable and straightforward characters. And then there are books where you have no idea how someone can keep so many deep actors in their head, you wonder if they were real people. Each character with their own motivations, and perspective. Sometimes I cheered for them. Sometimes I hated them. Always I loved them.

In any case, it’s a beautiful story. Heartbreaking and tragic.

This is a very good book about relationships of all kinds - familial, romantic, friendly - and the relationships that are harder to define in a single word. Sure, it's also about video game design, narrative structure, being empathetic and kind, and a little love letter to Southern California. It feels like the 1990s, and also timeless. Zevin writes wonderfully about gender, race, age, and all the ups and downs of those definitions across generations.

Very highly recommended, for people who like people.

Review of 'Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

4.5 stars. I had a few doubts at points along the way, but in the end this lived up to the hype. It was just as good as everyone said (NYT, NPR, Kirkus). This great Bob Lefsetz post convinced me that I needed to read it. I was seriously hooked by the third chapter. Engaging, entertaining, thought-provoking and funny. I cared a lot about the characters.
