å Read æ Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green ✓ Wow What did I just finish reading I don t know whether to cringe, cry, walk away baffled, or sing from the top of the mountain in a musical esque crescendo BRILLIANT The writing was refreshing, edgy, raw, and offensive at times but never off the mark Okay, how do I explain this book without mucking it up Here is my attempt Truly a honest and thought provoking portrayal of two very confused and angsty teenage boys, both named Will Grayson who are just trying to figure out who they are and ultimately crossing paths in the least likely of scenarios I started laughing from the first page and continued to laugh out loud throughout the story, but not without its occasional but constant tangents of sad and revealing moments and ultimate heart changing conclusion This book covered the gamut of teenage struggles, including homosexuality, depression, love, loss, true friendship This book is one that I m having a hard time rating It s nothing to do with the fact that the book is written by two authors and I would split up the writing or anything like that I found that their writing blended well together, and although I found one Will fun to read about than another I don t think it had to do with the writing really I ve read many other reviews where people liked the other Will so that doesn t really matter It s just that although this book has the usual humor I have come to expect from John s books there was not much than that to love about this book.

I m calling it quits on this one early This is not even remotely enjoyable for me It starts out with a bad tone as one of the Wills keeps fat shaming Tiny who, according to JG s website, is the actual main character , and then it just goes downhill so fast The only thing I liked about the pages that I read was the Neutral Milk Hotel referencing, but even that is slightly ruined by how Manic Pixie John s writing manages to make them sound Neutral Milk Hotel deserves better, okay There s also the immediate issue of one of the Wills way of speaking about Jane, with the whole, She s not the kind of girl I usually go for because her hair is too curly and she hangs out with boys Like, what Is that seriously a reason not to like a girl This is probably a good time to mention that I have now read six of JG This book is terrific one that adults could spend time together discussing high or low rating, there are topics worthy of discussion in this book Sixteen year olds may enjoy this book but I think the deeper insights might be appreciated when older There are already 15, 300 reviews I read two 2 years ago , by Larry Hoffer, and Glenn Sumi Larry s review was contagious and Glenn s thought provoking With the recent floods in San Jose an ongoing reminder for Paul and I as we are hosting flood victims this month and the two bomb threats at our Local Jewish Community center this week I was hoping for a fun escape so I grabbed this off my shelf.
THIS BOOK WAS FUNNY.
THE VERY FIRST SENTENCE WAS HILARIOUS.
but I forgot TEENAGERS HAVE ISSUES serious issues Underneath the laughter and funny dialogue, these kids were dealin DNF at 24% Alternate title for Will Grayson, Will Grayson Disappointment, Disappointment.
John Green, I thought we had a thing going You write incredible heart wrenching books, and I cry about them and recommend them to everyone in existence So what the hell happened with this I said in my review of Eleanor Park that never have I ever been so glad to check a book out from the library You can just go ahead and scratch that now I m happier that I got this from the library In the first 23 pages, I was hit with enough teenage angst to last me a lifetime I couldn t even make it to page 100 Where to begin The writing style was ridiculous Will 2 s POV was written like this nothing was capitalized everything was lowercase not even names, like will not even i And that bugged the ever loving shit out of me The characters wer I really liked the idea of this book, having two authors create a character each and alternate their points of view throughout the novel For me it was an entirely different kind of experience and the two authors have such unique styles that I would say it is definitely something everyone should read It s a story about two teenage boys, both of which are called Will Grayson They could hardly be different, there lives have almost nothing in common until one night when circumstances lead to them meeting by accident in a porn shop It s funny and it s ridiculous So why the average rating Well, because I couldn t get interested in John Green s character at all I m afraid This is my first experience of his writing and I know him to be a very highly rated and acclaimed author, one whose books have tempted me numerous times at my local lib artificially inflated by the greens ubiquitous little girl empire for christ s sake, hamlet only has a 3.
the feeling you get when you realize you ve just wasted time and energy you could ve spent reading one of infinitely many worthwhile books on something that has left you no richer for the wear is absolutely crushing i read it over two days, first in the evening before picking it up again in the morning when i fisnished, i threw it across the room and went back to sleep.
I have no idea what other book I could compare with Will Grayson, Will Grayson For some reason, I got a very strong sci fi vibe from the synopsis of this book The cover itself just screams alternate universes But nothing like that was involved It was just two guys in the same ol regular universe who meet under unusual circumstances No speculative elements involved But I still loved it Imagine that.
Content warning for this book Strong yet hilarious language including sexual references.
In this book, we meet two Will Graysons.
The first is John Green s Grayson He is lovable, funny and best friends with this guy named Tiny Cooper, so I call him Best Friend Will I really appreciate the fact that Best Friend Will isn t the kind of guy who runs crotch first toward any girls who like him He keeps his distance, physically and emotionally, from relationships but never seems to do the same mental 3.
5 starsI am glad David Levithan joined John Green to create this story, because clearly Green is unable to write any other characters different from what he had already offered in Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns and An Abundance of Katherines His Will Grayson is the same old nerdy, too eloquent boy who is into a smart, attractive, and slightly pretentious girl Green simply cannot move on to any other ensemble Levithan s Will Grayson, on the other hand, is a breath of fresh air with a whiff of depression He is a loner, a tad mentally unstable, but funny in a sarcastic kind of way I have read a ton of YA lit and still I think this character is quite unique.
The story itself is a great blend of Green s and Levithan s styles Essentially, it is about both Wills romantic entanglements, their struggles to connect, to commit and to move on There are great, dif
