What the community says about Will Grayson, Will Grayson

  • Matthew Sullivan
    Written on March 14, 2018
    "A bit ridiculous at times and extremely whimsical in nature, this book is not meant to be taken seriously and I can see it driving the more serious minded people away. The book revolves around 2 people of the same name Will Grayson, who eventually find romance in each other. It is an amusing coming of age tale that is meant to entertain by poking fun at our present day social nuances."

    "This book was amazing, but it wasn't what I was looking for originally. However, I decided to just get it and read it because the reviews I saw was good. I don't regret buying this book."

    "This book was okay, but I soon became a little weary of the play between the two characters. I think the plot and characters needed a little extra life and development. The premise of meeting someone with your same name and then having an adventure with them is unique and thought it could have been a little better."

    "I thought that this book was great. I thought it was very appropriate for the task at hand and will definitely be amusing. As a person with as the same name as others, I definitely could relate to some of the situations. I highly recommend this book."

    "I don't usually read novels that are promoted as teen fiction, but this one intrigued me and my niece swore to God I would love it. I started it to be able to talk about it with her afterward and I ended up loving it. It's funny and engrossing, a little sappy at times, but not in a way I found annoying or crass. It's an easy read, definitely, and it will probably make you feel happy and light-hearted. But what I really liked about it is the way it was written - by two authors who each wrote roughly half the chapters, each writing in the voice of one of the two main protagonists. It's a very simple concept and it works very well. The whole thing gains much authenticity and depth from it, and it's effortless and elegant. Inspiring and fun."

    ""Will Grayson, Will Grayson" is not David Levithan's strongest novel. The confusion is provided in an attempt to convey a lesson, however it gets messy. I would look to other choices in this author's collection prior to landing on this one."

    "Fiction is always a good genre to get teens to read. Will Grayson Will Grayson tackles that rather well with John Green's quality writing."

    "This is definitely one of the most interesting, unique, and high-concept YA novels ever written. Will Grayson, Will Grayson is about two teenage boys with the same name who happen to meet each other. What makes this concept even more interesting beyond its dual first-person narrative is the fact that each Will's perspective was written by a separate author - a very creative idea. Through each of these authors you get a very different take on teenage life, angst, and happiness that's extremely enjoyable and the ending is so much fun. I loved this book."

    "I am a bit surprised that "Will Grayson, Will Grayson" is not already a movie, though there are some attributes that might make it difficult to film. The book often switches between the perspective of the two main characters, who both have the same name, and who do not actually interact with one another for long stretches of time, I think. It seems like they could find some way to adapt the book into a film if they really wanted to, though, and I think it would be successful while being generally faithful to the source material."

    "This looks to be a great book and story. Not sure it is the proper fit for the given topic, but it is a very good read nonetheless. "

    "I had a great experience reading this. I am not gay but I will say this was one of the best gay romance books I have read for college students. It captivated me in a way few books have."

    "Will Grayson is the unlikely story of two strangers with the same name meeting and coming to conclusions of what they are looking for in life. While the core plot line is unrealistic, it's a nice story of how a person with your same name is struggling with different issues, but y'all can help each other out in unexpected ways!"

    "This was a wonderful novel from two kings of the YA craft. This joyous romp illustrated the qualms of being in high school and rising above to create the best high school musical a kid could ask for. I really enjoyed it, it brought back fond memories of my time in high school"
