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 lives intertwine.
It’s not that far from Evanston to Naperville, but Chicago 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.
So here’s the thing about this book. I feel like I should have given it like… 2 1/2 stars but since that’s not possible…I finished this book in two days, which isn’t abnormal for me. But books I REALLY love, I find a way to do it in a day. The only exception to this is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix which took me a mere 27 hours but I DIGRESS.
I didn’t hate this book. I didn’t love this book. I really only liked capitalized Will Grayson, and that was only toward the end. This book just really didn’t do much for me. I don’t feel like I wasted my time, but I also feel like I have other things I could have read instead?
ANYWAY some people may love this book, it just hits the right chord for them which is good and all, but I found myself barely highlighting anything and on top of that finding lowercase Will so obnoxious I made notes about it.
I only had one OMG moment and that was in regards to lowercase Will…I like for more OMG moments honestly. I also have a thing for when people make up nicknames for people so I did highlight “fucking witch ass bitch mussolini al-Qaeda darth vader non-entity” as well as “douchepants mcwater polo” so there’s that.
I’ll be interested to see where book club goes on this one, it was an especially close vote and I’m ready for “Cuckoo’s Calling”
