Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan

Will GraysonBlurb: Will 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 Iives intertwine.

It’s not that far from Evanston to Naperville, but Chiacago 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.

My Thoughts: Cute book. I enjoyed this novel, but I wished it was a bit longer. I liked that the writing styles were different. It helped under the characters better. I was surprised that it never really bothered me. I also wish there was more romance. I felt that I could relate to some of the characters in different ways, which I did not really expect.

Pudge becomes encircled by friends whose lives are everything but safe and boring. Their nucleus is razor-sharp, sexy, and self-destructive Alaska, who has perfected the arts of pranking and evading school rules. Pudge falls impossibly in love. When tragedy strikes the close-knit group, it is only in coming face-to-face with death that Pudge discovers the value of living and loving unconditionally.

My Thoughts: In all honesty, I have mixed feelings about this book. They are not feelings of dislike. I am just not sure how I can take this book.

I think my problem is that I do not feel connected to the story. I never really did any crazy things in high school (or college for that matter). I cannot say too much more because I don’t want to spoil it.

It almost seems like I am missing something. Like the ending dwindled down, and I missed the main point. Maybe I already understood the message John Green was trying to say. I don’t know.

This was recommended by mahraalhosani.

My Thoughts: Before this book I have never read any type of biography at all. This book is very modern because it ties together all aspects of Easter’s life. I would like to make it clear that Ester’s story and Hazel’s (TFiOS) is not the same. Ester seems like an amazing person, and I wish I could have met her. This book has made me remember some of the important things in life. I have so many emotions and thoughts from this book, I may have to add more when I have more time.

My Thoughts: To be completely honest, when I first heard of this book I did not want to read it. I am ashamed to admit that I thought it was some historical educational book. I had no real idea what it was about until I saw the trailer for the upcoming movie months ago.

Oh, how dumb I feel now. I devoured this book of 313 pages in three days. I was surprised how the pages seemed to fly by. However, I feel I have been cheated from the true experience of this book from the internet. My methods may be odd to some, but when I see a book I am interested in I will read the blurb once and then try to forgot about it. I LOVE not having an idea what will happen. Hence, why I try to avoid spoilers. I do not look for stuff on the internet or look a too many things in fear of running he story. I saw one picture on pinterest, and boom the whole book was ruined. To me, I felt I could not get as into the book as I feel like I should have.

I really liked this book. I like Augustus and Hazel. This book also gave me many things to think about. I like that I feel smarter since reading this novel. The overall mood was not  depressing as I thought it would be. I am just happy that I was able to read this book.
