Will Grayson, Will Grayson: What A Beautiful Book

There is always that feeling of sadness everytime I come to the last page of a good book. Most of the times, I refuse to accept the fact that the story has finally come to an end. All I could do is just move on, hold the beautiful memories of the characters and their stories in me, and probably blog about it (like what I'm currently doing). The recent novel I've finished reading was "Will Grayson, Will Grayson" written by two of the best-selling authors David Levithan and John Green.

This book is full of happy, heartbreaking, and funny moments. Everything in it was written beautifully. The story is about two different men who happen to have the same first name and last name. They both come from different worlds until one day, their paths crossed in Chicago and found their worlds completely colliding. From that moment on, both of their lives changed forever in ways they could never have guessed or imagined. Aside from the two Will Graysons, some of the characters that made this book interesting are Tiny Cooper and Jane. In fact, I even consider the novel as mostly about Tiny Cooper and his idealistic views in life and love (which amazingly are true and something I also believe into.) 

You know what made me love this book? The fact that it's all about appreciating life, love and all the great people surrounding us. Will Grayson, Will Grayson made me appreciate more all my gay friends. At the same time, it also made me put more value to the real friends surrounding me. Indeed, friendships are one of the best things in life! Most importantly, it showed me the importance of looking at life at the most positive way possible. From now on, I'm going to think like Tiny Cooper - Will Grayson's best friend / will grayson's lover. 

I believe in epiphanies.

You’ve gotta learn to love the falling, because it’s all about falling.

"One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two teens—both named Will Grayson—are about to cross paths. As their worlds collide and intertwine, the Will Graysons find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, building toward romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most fabulous high school musical.

Hilarious, poignant, and deeply insightful, John Green and David Levithan’s collaborative novel is brimming with a double helping of the heart and humor that have won both of them legions of faithful fans."


  1. Everyone's life is a decision to make. Once decided, it molded into something different because of maturity and knowing something new according to his/her personality. Personality is the pattern of collective character, behavioral, temperamental, emotional, and mental traits of a person. Distinctive qualities of a person, especially those personal characteristics that make one socially appealing. God gave humans to decide and thus, decision make up one's life.

  2. This is one book I want to read. I love reading novel with inspirational message written all over its pages. Pal, do check your post's title, medyo mali eh.

  3. I'm currently reading Where She Went. This seems like a good book to read after. Nice review! Papaleng is right. The post title lacks one letter.

  4. It's nice to see how their character interacts especially with the same name.

  5. Read the book before. It's a nice book. But for all John Green's book the first on my List is The Fault in Out Stars, and the Next is the Abundance of Katherines.. But I loved all his books though. And David Levithan's Everyday.

  6. I see myself in the illustration. I'm looking forward to read this book too!


Let's talk over a cup of coffee.
