I picked this up due to the hype surrounding it and after someone had recommended this as a love letter to video games, which I found to be true. I enjoyed the portrayal of game development and design the most. Nevertheless, after the first few chapters the pacing really slowed down and the book focused heavily on the two main characters, Sam and Sadie, and how their 'platonic' relationship changed over time. They're both flawed in their own ways, however, I found both of them to be really dislikable and insufferable, thus, it was really hard to immerse myself into the story when more than half the time they were fighting and not resolving the issues they had with each other.
