I absolutely love this book. The characters are so real and complex and struggle with issues I can identify with. It made me laugh out loud in places, and also brought me close to tears. I found it a very emotionally charged book and really felt like I was in the characters' heads.

Relationships are messy and complicated as a teenager and this book manages to capture that wonderfully. There aren't perfect teen romances, but it also manages not to be too depressing either.

The descriptions from will of what it's like to live with depression were spot on, and it's great to read something from the perspective of someone who is living with mental illness.

I am also somewhat interested in Maura, what she does is awful, but at the same time I think she is much more complicated than we see. I think there's so much potential in her character that wasn't quite fulfilled in the same way as other minor characters.

I was initally unsure about Tiny, he seemed to be portrayed quite stereotypically and it annoyed me a little. However, after the first few pages I was starting to love him, and by the end he was a brilliant character. Tiny's friend Will annoyed me with his treatment of Tiny at times, but their friendship was very interesting and grew throughout the book.

There are so many great quotes in this book, but something that really made me think was "Anything that happens all at once, is just as likely to unhappen all at once". This has some definite truth in it for me personally. ( )

I didn't expect to like this as much in the beginning. It started out well but I wasn't blown away. But as the novel gets going and I get to know each Will Grayson more intimately (and understand their issues a bit more), I became a fan. The gimmick works, the alternating voices seem authentic and quite different from each other. I initially found Levithan's lack of capitalization annoying but soon overlooked it; it also seems like the way second Will would write. And like most other reviewers, I wish Tiny Cooper was my new best friend; he's a fantastic character and the story wouldn't exist without him. I enjoyed the book until near the end when I completely fell in love with it.

Course evaluation: Told in a similar format as Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, the authors successfully establish two distinct protagonists with the same name. There is little confusion as each chapter changes perspective because the Wills have authentic, unique voices. The gimmick of having two Will Graysons isn’t overplayed and feels believable; the random meeting forces each Will to mature and face initially uncomfortable truths. Most of all, the transformation of each Will into a more confident, self-actualized person is reflected by the shift of focus through the story; they seem washed out and two-dimensional at first, but grow and become more complex as the story progresses.

Will Grayson, Will Grayson is a YA novel co-authored by John Green and David Levithan. One night in Chicago, two teens both named Will Grayson happen to meet.

Will Grayson #1 (written by John Green) is a pretty average guy with a larger than life best friend, Tiny Cooper. Tiny is currently writing a musical about his life. Tiny meets Will Grayson #2 (penned by David Levithan) and some sparks fly. Tiny begins dating WG2 and WG1 begins to feel neglected.

I found WG2 to be the more interesting Will Grayson. WG1 is written like every other male teen character that John Green has ever created.

There are some nice friendship moments here and a massive subplot of the impending musical. If you are as musical obsessed as Tiny Cooper is then you will probably enjoy this book. ( )

Romans over homoseksuelen kennen doorgaans een noodlottig einde. Er gaat iemand dood of er wordt iemand terminaal ziek. Dat moet een van de redenen zijn waarom homoboekhandels tegenwoordig veel porno verkopen om het hoofd boven water te houden, van de romans raken hun klanten depressief. Bij de jeugdroman Will Grayson, Will Grayson van de Amerikanen John Green en David Levithan is het totaal omgedraaid. Het boek is prachtig, met vaart en humor beschreven, alleen het einde is van zo’n suikerzoet Hollywoodgehalte dat het glazuur je van de tanden springt. Doodzonde. (En dan komt er ook nog een toegift: ‘We geven toe dat Gods liefde je nooit kan worden afgenomen, omdat je bent wie je bent doordat God je heeft gemaakt.’)

John Green en David Levithan – Will Grayson, Will Grayson

dinsdag 11 januari 2011 om 17u00

Wie vreesde dat de laatste goeie roman over jongeren al was geschreven, moet Will Grayson, will grayson van het duo John Green-David Levithan maar eens lezen.

John Green en David Levithan – Will Grayson, will grayson
Uitgeverij: Lemniscaat
Aantal pagina’s: 277
Prijs: 16,95 euro
ISBN: 978-90-477-0327-3

Uitgeverij Lemniscaat houdt de vinger aan de pols van de betere Amerikaanse jongerenliteratuur. Bij bosjes worden recente Young Adult-romans vertaald. In deze actuele fictie krijg je niet zozeer 'probleemjongeren', maar wel stevige jongvolwassenen die evenzeer de greep op het leven verliezen als hun lot in eigen handen nemen.

De protagonisten zijn helemaal 'nu': well informed, opgegroeid in gebroken gezinnen, vroegrijp, en in die wirwar ook nog altijd op zoek naar de liefde die vriendschap heet (of andersom). De verhalen spelen zich af op school, in grootsteden, niet zelden hebben de levensechte personages megalomane projecten in hun hoofd.

Doordat veel scheppers van die jongerenpersonages zelf zijn opgegroeid met het internet, sms, msn, blogs, Facebook et cetera, worden communicatiemedia vlotjes in de verhalen geïntegreerd. Binnensboeks hoppen van het ene genre naar het andere is allang geen trend meer, het is bijna een must.

John Green en David Levithan zijn twee kleppers van de Amerikaanse Young Adult-school. Lemniscaat vertaalde een roman die ze samen schreven: Will Grayson/will grayson.

Dat samen knutselen aan jongerenverhalen is een betrekkelijk nieuw fenomeen. Uitgeverij Querido past het op een andere manier toe in haar reeks Slash-boeken, waarbij 'gevestigde auteurs' levensechte verhalen van jongeren optekenen, in samenspraak.

Bij Will Grayson/will grayson kozen Green en Levithan ervoor elk een personage met dezelfde naam uit te werken. In het ene hoofdstuk komt de ene Will Grayson (mét hoofdletters) aan het woord, in het andere doet de andere will grayson zijn verhaal (zonder hoofdletters). Tot ze - het klinkt geforceerd maar verloopt vrij natuurlijk - elkaar als bij toeval op een dag ontmoeten en hun levens verstrengeld raken.

Will Grayson 1 is een vrij normale adolescent: ietwat teruggetrokken, behoorlijk nuchter en onzeker, maar met het hart op de juiste plaats. Zijn identiteit wordt mede bepaald door zijn allerbeste vriend, Tiny Cooper: een onrustige, vitalistische en narcistische homo die 'out and proud' een musical over zichzelf en de liefde in elkaar bokst.

Will Grayson 2 is een ietwat geïsoleerde en zwartgallige jongeling. Hij zit als homo nog in de kast en kampt met een depressie. Zijn klankbord is de al even cynische Maura, die zich dan weer geen blijf weet met haar verliefdheid op haar homomaatje.

A wonderfully campy, sweet, romantic gesture in the spectacular style that readers have come to expect from these two YA masters.

Tiny Cooper is not the world's gayest person, and he is not the world's largest person, but I believe he may be the world's largest person who is really, really gay, and also the the world's gayest person who is really, really large.
There are probably some girls who don’t want guys to show up at their house randomly on a Tuesday night with questions about Edwin Schrodinger. I am sure such girls exist. But they don’t live at my house.
