Will Grayson, Will Grayson Book Review



Will Grayson, Will GraysonWill Grayson meets Will Grayson. One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two strangers are about to cross paths. From that moment on, their world will collide and lives intertwine.

It’s not that far from Evanston to Naperville, but Chicago suburbanites Will Grayson and Will Grayson might as well live on different planets. When fate delivers them both to the same surprising crossroads, the Will Graysons find their lives overlapping and hurtling in new and unexpected directions. With a push from friends new and old – including the massive, and massively fabulous, Tiny Cooper, offensive lineman and musical theater auteur extraordinaire – Will and Will begin building toward respective romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most awesome high school musical.

This follows two teenage boys both named Will Grayson. It’s entirely comprised of them becoming entwined and interconnected with their friends and lives. It’s John Green, so it automatically gets 4 stars.

Spoiler Section

Like all John Green books, the writing is easy to read and understand, yet is very intriguing. The plot of this book, however, was mediocre at best. I didn’t like Jane that much, and I felt like Will and Jane together was so boring and was going nowhere. I like the other Will and Tiny, though. SHIPPING THEM SO HARD.

I think I almost laughed out loud every time Tiny was on the page. He’s literally the most adorable character ever. Before reading this book, I just generally assumed a character named “Tiny Cooper” would be tiny, but no, it’s just irony hard at work.

I haven’t read any of David Levithan’s other books, even though I have them! I did really enjoy his writing in this book, though! OMG the picture on the back of the book of John and David, LOL-ing John is such an awesome nerd(fighter).

If you’ve seen this video, THAT IS SO COOL. IT IS FITNESS FOR NERDS. 

4/5 stars to Will Grayson, Will GraysonThanks for reading! Remember my Goodreads is thebookllama_hannah and my Instagram is@thebookllama!

  1. Ah I haven’t read this book in like two years! I’ll definitely be rereading it soon! Tiny is so awesome and you know his play in the book? David wrote his play and it is it’s own book, it’s called Hold Me Closer, it’s gold and sparkly just like something you’d expect from Tiny hahaha

      1. I haven’t actually read it yet but coincidentally when I was at my school library today I saw it on the “new to our library” table and I immediately took it out! Can’t wait to read it!

  2. I haven’t read this one yet, and this is the second review I’ve read about it this month! The first (and only, so far) attempt I made at John Green was Paper Towns, which receives very mixed feelings from me, and I guess it’s not the one to start with. At the time, The Fault in Our Stars (because of the movie) was SO hyped, I wanted to stand back until all the hype was in the past (as far as the media’s concerned), and I could judge it more fairly. Still not sure if I’ll give WG, wg a try though….sorry. 🙂
