Will Grayson, Will Grayson
« on: January 28, 2013, 10:57:15 AM »

Have any of you guys ever read Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan?  I just finished it and I absolutely loved it.  It was honestly one of the best books I have EVER read.

Yeah I think the Fault in Our Stars might have been a little better, but for some reason this book had really deep meaning to me, whereas the Fault in Our Stars was just a really amazing book.

Anyway my favorite Will Grayson was actually will (the lowercase guy)  I'm not sure why I just liked him more than Will.  I thought Will was kind of annoying and I didn't like his love story with Jane.  Tiny Cooper was my favorite character.   ;D

I tried, but I couldn't get past David Levithan's writing style. Is it worth it? I LOVE John Green

I'm not sure whether you are talking about the no-caps or his style in general, but either way once you get into the book you hardly notice either.  It's completely worth it.  If you love John Green this is a MUST.
