Description

One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, teenager Will Grayson crosses paths with..."Will Grayson"! Two teens with the same name who run in two very different circles suddenly find their lives going in new and unexpected directions. Culminating in epic turns-of-heart on both of their parts, they team up to produce the most fabulous musical ever to grace the high-school stage. Told in alternating voices from two award-winning, popular names in young-adult fiction - 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. John Green has a huge online presence through his 1.1 million Twitter followers and YouTube channel Vlogbrothers, which has been viewed over 200 million times and has 660,000 subscribers, making it one of the most successful online channels in history. This is a Penguin logo edition.

No light young-adult fic here: Green and Levithan delivers a haunting yet humorous look on life
By: Theresia Lim

I was first attracted to this book because I would read anything John Green writes. Even oatmeal cookie recipes. And once again, John Green, this time along with David Levithan, did not disappoint. 

In this dual-authored book, Green handles the odd-numbered chapters chronicling the adventures of a more privileged Will Grayson, whilst Levithan pens the even-numbered chapters detailing mostly the morbid thoughts of the second will grayson. Both characters have next to nothing in common, aside from their name, age range, and the dramatic adolescent/life issues they wrestle with. Green's Will Grayson predictably has Green's poetic voice, and narrates with striking... See More

quotes such as:

"This is why we call people exes, I guess--because the paths that cross in the middle end up separating at the end. It's too easy to see an X as a cross-out. It's not, because there's no way to cross out something like that. The X is a diagram of two paths."

Leave it to John Green to make ocean-deep metaphors out of a letter of the ol' alphabet. Rest assured, if you're a fan of unexpected, witty, and beautiful metaphors Green is famous for, at least half of this book is already a winner. Now on to the other half.

Note how I've written the second titular character's name in my second paragraph with only lower cases. This is a reflection of how Levithan writes through all of his chapter. Everything. Is. In. Lower. Case. Now, if you're a grammar nazi like myself, the first few of Levithan's chapters might tempt you to take out a pen and personally scribe upper case letter on the begining of every sentence and name. It might even annoy you, which it certainly did to me. I was about three Levithan-chapters in when I realized that the lower cases may express Levithan's will grayson's view of life; everything is monotone, dull, unexciting. He even writes his own name in all lower cases, perhaps as a sign of how little and unimportant he sees himself to be. It is then that I realize and begin to appreciate that while Green's metaphors jump out the page and announces itself, Levithan's blend into the words and grammar of his prose, sitting so silently in the background that you really have to pause and look for it. In essence, Levithan's very way of writing is a personification of his will grayson. And that won the second half of the book for me. 

I may not have LOVED this book, but I really really really really really liked it. The story handles the delicate issues of mortality, sexuality, relationships, and views of self beautifully. Amongst other things, it's funny and thought-provoking, two wining combinations for me for any literature piece. Mind you, I wouldn't classify it as an easy-read; if that's what you're looking for, look away from this book. But if you're in the market for a book that will make you think about life, and make you snort with laughter along the way, then I would definitely recommend this book.

Well, well, you've done it now John Green.
By: Natasha Setyasty Primaditta

Well, before I read this book, I already finished reading The Fault In Our Stars and Looking For Alaska, which to my opinion were a very good book to read. It was interesting and also inspiring. When I read Will Grayson, Will Grayson though, I was left speechless. It was sooo goodd! The multiple storyline, author duo, and the theme it carried were fantastic. A great story about finding yourself and be true to it.

You Wouldn't Miss This if You Call Yourself a John Green Fan
By: Ernestine Oktaviana Yuniswara

John Green might be the most wanted young adult writer of the year with books that always amuse us, readers. Have you been left weeping post-reading "The Fault in Our Stars"? Deeply confused and depressed after putting "Looking for Alaska" down? Or laughing all the way "Abundance of Katherines"? "Will Grayson, Will Grayson" that John Green wrote with his fellow celebrated YA author David Levithan, left a totally different remarks when you finally came to the end of the book. You might call this book a melting pot for the after reading emotions of John Green books.

"Will Grayson, Will Grayoson" which rotates around two boys... See More

named Will Graysons who met in the most unlikely situation still got the tearjerking effect but not only because it tickles your melancholy side but also prickle you with its jokes. Througout the book you will meet Tiny Cooper that you might really, really adore in the end. Also, like other Green's books, "Will Grayson, Will Grayson" put youth's issue as its main theme, but with a touch of LGBT awareness and musical references here and there. It is an entertaining, page turner book that you do not want to be missed.

Plus, if you buy it on Periplus Store and you are a PEC member, other than get some leisure from this book, you will also get some points that you can use to purchase more quality books. It is a totally "go for it" type of book ;)

Penuh kejutan!
By: Fabiola Rahmadanti

Saat pertama kali saya membaca cerita ini, saya agak kebingungan karena ada dua sudut pandang dari dua tokoh utama yang terdapat dalam novel ini. Tapi semakin jauh saya membaca, saya makin penasaran dengan apa yang terjadi selanjutnya. Seluruh kata ditulis dengan sangat jujur dan penuh makna. Jalan ceritanya pun cukup sulit diterka sehingga saya bersemangat setiap kali membaca halaman demi halaman. Salah satu novel terbaik yang pernah saya baca. Great job, Mr. Green dan Mr. Levithan!

Amazing.
By: Ardhiyanto Mulyono

I chose to get this book in June, and I think that was one of the best decisions I've made in my entire life. This book will take you through a breathtaking journey of very well-written romance, and I bet my soul you will squeal in excitement while reading it. I, personally, have read it about six times, and I enjoyed it even more and more than the last time I've read it. I 100% recommend this book for anyone to read.
