Synopsis From Goodreads
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 Grayson’s 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.
I have read one of John Green’s work preceding this and I felt the same way on this book which I felt from his past novel, an absolute dissatisfaction. I had such high expectations for this one, and it didn’t convey. I’m not a fanatic of John Green’s voice as an author in any case, so that might have been a greater issue for me than others. I additionally thought parts about the books were exceptionally unsurprising and cliché. I simply needed to be blown away with amazingness, however he neglected to cause me to have that impression. Perhaps on the grounds that I had read reviews which demonstrated a tendency towards invented mind and excessively educated voices for his oddly mindful young person characters. I can’t say I wish I hadn’t run from this book since I completed it, so obviously something was pulling me in. In any case, for this situation, I think it was only a craving for the novel to improve eventually. Sadly, it didn’t.
The novel is isolated into two separate voices, both described by a seventeen-year-old kid named Will Grayson. Their ways cross in the book, so, all things considered their lives begin to improve quite a bit. At any rate, I believe it should be to improve things. It’s rarely totally clear. The other book’s characters are also insipid, and appear to fill no genuine need past driving helpful plot focuses.
This book, for me is one of the not all that great novel particularly when there’s a plenty of practical, unique, inspiring other options, I’d give this one a strong no. It is excessively developed for youthful teenagers, perhaps I am not yet prepared for youngsters to manage these complicated, mind-boggling issues.
Anyway, I cannot recommend this novel to those who are looking for a different yet heart warming story. This is definitely not one of them.
