Book Review: Will Grayson, Will Grayson


Today I shall be reviewing a book titled Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan.

Here is the description of the book:

One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two teens—both named Will Grayson—are about to cross paths. As their worlds collide and intertwine, the Will Graysons find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, building toward romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most fabulous high school musical.
Hilarious, poignant, and deeply insightful, John Green and David Levithan’s collaborative novel is brimming with a double helping of the heart and humor that have won both them legions of faithful fans.

My review:

In honor for the Project for Awesome, I decided to read this book. I always heard good stuff about it and the cover is very unique. The cover makes me feel like I am in a flash back or something.

The book is all about 2 will Graysons who have different lives and who will meet as the book goes on. The characters in this book are well-developed and real to me. The first Will Grayson is one of those who don’t care about anything. He thinks its better that way. Until that one thing is taken away from him. The other Will Grayson is gay and he struggles to tell the world. Therefore, he is always depressed.

This is how the book went on: Will Grayson (1) had a chapter and the other Will Grayson followed the other chapter. Let's be honest and say that I got confused. At first, I thought that it was one Will Grayson throughout the first half of the book. There was just no difference in between the first Will Grayson and other Will Grayson; except for the fact that Will Grayson (2) was writing in small caps but I thought it was an error. Until the climax rose and both will Grayson met that I realized the difference. I just wish they differentiated both Will Graysons in other form.

Did I mention that this book was funny? If you don’t want to read this book, just read the first sentence of it. Hilarious. Smart.Awesome.

Before I end this post, I want to take a moment to thank these 2 authors for writing such an amazing book that might give hope to many people out there. Sometimes it takes for 1 book to make someone who is being bullied and miserable, to make them feel better and Will Grayson, Will Grayson was one of those books.
