“If you ever die, I’ll just start the game again.” and “I am going to play until I die.”
These two quotes were very simple yet such huge philosophical ideas at the same time.

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow and Tomorrow

This book has great reviews and at 80% in with my @librofm copy I can tell why.
This book about two kids who bonded over video games during a hard time in their life. Then reconnected in college to build games together. All the while struggling with relationships and work.
I did have a long conversation before dinner about Sam’s injuries. They were pretty tragic and gruesomeish. There were a lot of tough topics discussed and this book was in second person which is always interesting.
Today was my Dad’s birthday and after having a big piece of chocolate cake in his honor. I listened to a part of this book where someone’s life passed before their eyes and it made me relive his time in the hospital. Hoping he could hear me too. Btw that part sucked wish that didn’t happen, I really liked that character and wished he could get his extra life. But my Dad always told me life isn’t fair.
The negative reviews for this one seemed silly, so you do you.
❓ What is your biggest bookish pet peeve?
Mine is when others compare books to other authors in reviews and give lower stars cause the other book was better. It’s not a competition. Everyone’s voice is different. No one can tell the same story. I give everyone a blank slate with no comparison even to their previous books. You aren’t who you were yesterday.
Thank you @libro for my alc for my honest and voluntary review.
In this exhilarating novel by the best-selling author of The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry two friends–often in love, but never lovers–come together as creative partners in the world of video game design, where success brings them fame, joy, tragedy, duplicity, and, ultimately, a kind of immortality.
