Funny, rude and original (New York Times)

A terrific high-energy tale (Booklist)

Product Description

The New York Times bestselling novel from John Green, the author of multi-million bestseller The Fault in Our Stars, and David Levithan.



One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, Will Grayson crosses paths with . . . Will Grayson. Two guys with the same name, running in two very different circles, suddenly find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, and culminating in epic turns-of-heart and the most fabulous musical ever to grace the high-school stage.



Told in alternating voices from two award-winning authors - John Green (author of The Fault in Our Stars) and David Levithan (author of Boy Meets Boy) - this unique collaborative novel features a double helping of the heart and humour that has won both authors legions of fans.



'Funny, rude and original' - New York Times Book Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too 14 Jun 2010
By TeensReadToo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Two of today's most popular young adult authors have collaborated together on an entertaining journey into the lives of two characters, both named Will Grayson.

Told in alternating chapters and voices, each Will Grayson is introduced to the reader. Each Will slowly reveals the inner workings of their minds. John Green's Will Grayson has bounced from his friend, Tiny Cooper, to a sporty group of friends, back to Tiny Cooper.

Tiny is anything but Tiny. He's a hulking gay football player of a boy. Tiny is proud to be gay and is pushing to have the school let him put on his production Tiny Dancer: The Tiny Cooper Story. Tiny always puts Will in crazy or uncomfortable situations. Tiny is trying to set Will up with their friend, Jane. Will is attracted to Jane but can't bring himself to pursue her.

On the other side of the city is David Levithan's Will Grayson. This Will is a loner. His only friend is an Internet buddy, Isaac, who lives in Ohio. There's Maura, a girl from school who thinks she's Will's friend, but Will finds her intrusive and bothersome. Maura is convinced Will is gay, but Will refuses to divulge anything personal to her.

As the story develops, both Wills unexpectedly find themselves in the same bizarre porn shop in Chicago. Neither expected to be there, and when they realize they have the same name, they find themselves sitting outside trying to figure things out. Enter Tiny and Jane, and the night is about to get even more bizarre.

Each author has a distinctive style, and it's quite easy to distinguish between the two while reading WILL GRAYSON, WILL GRAYSON. I found one of the author's Will Grayson characters much more appealing than the other, but both are well-written and have fascinating stories to share.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Funny, rude and original" - NY Times 4 July 2011
Format:Paperback
Truer words were never spoken.

Every once in a while, the perfect idea comes to the perfect pair of minds and is executed in the perfect manner about the perfect characters in a perfectly told plot, producing, in effect, the perfect book.

I cannot even begin to say how much I fell in love with every facet of this book. I started reading it 6 hours ago, and I have now finished it, and I wish I could have made it last a little bit longer.

The idea of two Will Grayson's randomly meeting was highly appealing to me, and I honestly thought there would be more to their meeting than the story actually had, but that didn't matter. Because the way Green and Levithan decided to spin it was absolutely fantastic and way better than I had imagined.

Again, the authors' knack for so brilliantly conveying a person's psyche is phenomenal. The thoughts, humour, struggle and emotions were very well displayed across all the characters, and they make each and every character so unique in their own way, that there is noway you wouldn't remember one of them. They are the kind of characters that stay with you long after the story's ended.

I read this book and I thought, they'd be crazy not to make an actual production out of it! It has all the elements to keep you reading until the very end - It is sarcastic, bitter, angry, emotional, hilarious, witty, sad, cute, and extremely clever - but what do you expect when you bring two genius writers such as John Green and David Levithan for a collaborative effort?

3.0 out of 5 stars Let there be laughs! 3 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback
One night, in the city of Chicargo, Will Greyson walks into a store and meets . . . Will Greyson! Two boys, same age, same name, but with completely different lives. One being depressed and unsocial, the other being friendly and charismatic, and after their first meeting, all the rules that they maked for themselves starts to be broken.

I'd never read a book both first person and dule P.O.V. Each chapter switches from one Will Greyson to the other. John Green and David Leuithan make a point of making contrast in the two voices by their writing styles. With the Will that I call Will Greyson No.1 (since he has the first chapter), he write in the present tence, using quotation marks, while Will Greyson No.2 (since he has the second chapter) write conversasions in the form of a play without using quotation marks and seperating it into paragraphs. An interesting note is the W.G No.2 doesn't use capitals at the beginning of his sentences.
I found it interesting to read and I found heart-warming moments in it, but for the most part I found some of it a little cheesey, a bit rushed and a little bit (dare I say it) sloppy. I didn't understand right away why it would be about two Will Greysons since - in total - they only talk to each other up top a maximum of three times. The two Will Greysons don't interact and I was surprised about how little they were involved in each others lives and even when it came to a conclusion as to why it was important, I kind of thought it was a little bit too fanastical and unrealistic.
