Reads and Thoughts

Ola! I'm one of those crazy girls who is overly addictive to books and reading. I'm weird around books and tends to read them abnormally fast. And I'm a hopeful romantic who is a firm believer of Happily Ever Afters.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson - 'John Green',  'David Levithan' Is it wrong for me to love EVERYTHING about this book?!

Is it wrong for me to say that this is one of the AWESOME-est book ever?!

The first time I held this book on a bookstore I feel giddy about it and bought it immediately. It was written by John Green and David Levithan in alternating chapters. Both of them captures the essence of high school experiences and trials and brings it to a whole new level. Their observation on teenage life were pretty hilarious.

I admit I really had a hard time reading this book for it is not really easy to recap. I remember asking myself 'Is the other Will Grayson a girl or a guy?', 'How would they meet?,' blah's blah's. Yes. I know. Silly of me to ask those questions to myself, but you can't really blame me since I never really have any idea on how the story would go. I never really know what I would get with this story. But as I start to dive into the story of the two Will Graysons, I find myself laughing and enjoying it.

It was during one cold night in the midst of Chicago the two Will Graysons meet in an unplanned, unpredicted and hilarious way. Through this, they find themselves watching the lives of each other that goes in a new and unexpected directions.

Will Grayson(#1) is the kind of guy who don't care too much and just simply goes with the flow. He doesn't mingle with girls in fear of being hurt and left. He usually stands behind the back of his bestfriend.

The other Will Grayson (#2) is the one who suffers a depression. His family's situation is on the rocks. He wants to be recognize as someone. He also learn that inside him, he prefers guys over girls.

Both of these are characters are pretty likeable, regardless of their flaws. They seem to be very real. Though they both refuse to listen to what they want and what they need, atleast at the very end they still get to realize it.

Between these two Will Graysons stands Tiny Cooper. He is Will Grayson's (#1) bestfriend and as the author describes him, he is surely the world's gayest large person or largest gay person. With his witty personality, passion in what he do and dedication to the people who matters to him, he helps both Will Graysons to realize their inner self and what they need to overcome in life.

The book was written in a very interesting way. This is a great book about love, friendship and most of all acceptance. It shows that it is okay to show who you really are, you could be gay, fat, ugly or dorky in the end people would still like you regardless of your flaws. For just simply being who you are.

In all, it was a very overwhelming and powerful read. It was unique and extraordinary.
