Will Grayson, Will Grayson Review

Thursday, July 29, 2010

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.

Way back when I had a WoW for Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and I'm honestly not sure why I took so long to read this. (Oh wait...maybe it was because of my infinitely long hiatus. Oops!) Let's be honest, though - that's neither here nor there.

The fact is that Will Grayson, Will Grayson, though hard to describe, was truly brilliant. The books is about two boys, both named Will Grayson, who happen upon each other and despite their very different backgrounds, come together and spin a story about life, love, and the truth that's within all of us.

The book is written by both John Green and David Levithan. Each author created the world of their Will Grayson. John Green's Will Grayson is a nerdy, geeky, dorky, and endearing teen who pretty much embodies the stereotypical teen boy. David Levithan's Will Grayson is a bit more out of the ordinary. He struggles with depression and the need for mood-stabilizing pills. The stark contrast between the two Will Graysons makes this a coming-of-age book that almost anyone could relate to.

It's beautifully written, each Will Grayson has a distinct voice (the chapters alternate, and one is written without any caps). To be honest though, parts of the book are cheesy and completely over-the-top - especially the end. That said, this book is sweet, about love above all else, and you will either love it or hate it. I choose to really love it, though I'm sure there are plenty of people aggravated by the completely unbelievable nature of the end.

I give it a strong 4 out of 5, and I'd recommend Will Grayson, Will Grayson to anyone looking for a unique, fun, and feel-good book.
