Will Gryason, meet
Will Grayson
One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two strangers cross paths. Two teens with the same name, running in two very different circles, suddenly find their lives going in a new and unexpected directions, culminating in heroic turns-of-heart and the most epic musical ever to grace the high school stage.


I read this book like two or three months ago, but I never wrote a review since my previous blog didn't work so well, and I lacked the strength to revive whatever was left of it. Either way, this a whole new experience, and that's exactly how I felt about Will Grayson, Will Grayson, it was a whole new experience. I usually don't read books besides Paranormal and some Classics, for a weird reason that I believe that books should be more about taking you to a new world a new place.
However, I been reading non-fiction for a while, and it has grown on me. I still love fiction more, but there are really good stories that don't usually relate to the same boring life we live today. And Will Grayson, Will Grayson was that. The whole book was fast to read, easy and FUNNY as hell, there were moments where I would start laughing like a idiot and my mom will said. "Did I smoke something while I was pregnant."
The book deals with two opposite characters, that in a way both their story related to one another in a way that only John Green, and David Levithan could have created. I learn to love the characters, especially Tiny Cooper, who is just damn hilarious. Also, I loved how the characters weren't portrait as your average models, they were described as any normal teenager may look like, so that was nice to see for a change. Also I loved the confusion romance of Will Grayson and Jane, and no I'm not talking about the other Will Gryason. Confused much LOL.
Anyhow, I enjoyed this book a lot, it reminded me, or at least I portrait it in my head like the movie of Scott Pilgrim vs. World. Sometimes I could even see Michael Cera as one of the Will Grayson's, now that will be fun to watch.

 I could find an Official trailer for the book, but here's an amazing video of John Green reading from the book.
