I'm not usually one for contemporary/literary novels but I enjoyed this one.

The writing was smart and crisp. It also invoked nostalgia for me, for the games I've played and the childhood I have. I didn't know much about early game development so that was fun to learn.

All the characters have their flaws, but not in a way that makes them truly awful. I think Zevin does justice to how messy our relationships can be.

She also does justice to showcasing the experiences of people who might have our class systems stacked against them.

Wow. If you think this is a book about video games, think again.

There are plenty of Easter eggs for the avid gamer, sure, but this book dives into the connection between friends, lovers, collaborators, and all the places they may overlap. I was blown away by the power in relationships forged through loss and creativity. 

I kept a running list of words I had to look up (landed around 10, I think). Zevin's vocabulary is off the charts! But it works, and was only distracting at the beginning for me.

This is a book I will read again, and I am already looking forward to it.
