REVIEW: Will Grayson, Will Grayson - John Green & David Levithan

Friday, 18 July 2014
GENRE: Contemporary/Romance
PAGES: 3852
FORMAT: Paperback
BUY IT: Waterstones
RATING: 5 Stars

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.

I completely and utterly loved this book, and then joy of joys, I read that David Levithan is going to be doing a Tiny Cooper spin off! How fabulous!

I really enjoyed the split narration, each Will Grayson had their own idiosyncrasies and when they met I was excited to see what would happen. The book deals with some serious issues of friendship, sexuality and relationships so it was very relatable and felt honest. It's quite "american" with the whole musical aspect - I can't imagine it having happened in my school, but then again that was about 15 yrs ago (Chris I feel old...)

Regardless, I loved it and will now be reading David Levithan's other books.

- Gem.


  1. It's a fabulous book. Tiny Cooper is easily one of my favourite characters.

  2. I've had this on my TBR pile for a while, definitely need to start reading it now! :)
