This book was okay I suppose, It wasn’t unreadable, but it felt like the young adult cliches that I’ve read so many times before, and I’m starting to think I might have outgrown them. Not all young adult literature – I don’t think I could ever outgrow that – but the really trying-too-hard-to be-a-different-love-story novels, and then somehow ends up being a really cliche love story anyway.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson is written through the perspective of two characters with the same name; Will Grayson. One Will Grayson has the childhood friend, Tiny Cooper, who isn’t actually tiny. The other Will Grayson is suffering from depression, is gay and has some friends who doesn’t have his best intention at heart, but has a mother who loves him.
While it had it exciting parts, it just wasn’t all that great, but I would recommend it to people who really like novels like Let It Snow. It could also be good if you really have nothing else to do with your time or if you are into the aforementioned cliches. It has its inspirational moments and its good moments, but overall it’s quite meh.
