Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan: Book Review

Will Grayson, Will Grayson
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Publication Date: April 26th 2010
Source: Bought
Rating: 4/5 stars
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 of them legions of faithful fans. (via goodreads)

My Thoughts: I loved the idea of this book. Two authors each write their own character named Will Grayson. I am not the biggest fan of John Green but the idea of this book was so compelling, I couldn't resist buying it. The plot of this book was supposed to revolve around each Will Grayson but the book actually revolves around this character called Tiny Cooper. Don't get me wrong, I loved Tiny Cooper but I wanted to read a lot about the 2nd Will Grayson. I liked the Will Grayson that David Levithan wrote better than John Green's. Read the book and you'll see it too! The ending of this book was unsatisfying and confusing. I didn't like it at all. If the ending was different, I'd probably give it a higher rating. The romance in this book was as confusing as the ending. I didn't love it at all. Also, I found the passage of time in this book confusing. At the beginning, the Will Graysons recounted the same days but after a couple of chapters, it was several days between each P.O.V. It was a little confusing. Overall, this book was interesting but it lacked romance and a satisfying ending.
