Read the Ending, Skip the Rest

Will Grayson, Will Grayson - John Green, David Levithan

I'm super confused how to rate this book.  I basically found it fairly mediocre.  Both of these authors are authors that I've read books by and been blown away - this was not one of them.  Yet, somehow I found myself sobbing through the last chapter.  So I'm super confused.


Ending: 5 Stars

The rest of the book: 2 Stars


Average(ish): 3.5 Stars


...I guess.


I was not attached to any of the characters in either Will Grayson's or will grayson's life.  Will Grayson was super irritatingly attached to his sort of douchebag group of ex-friends, and mad clingy to the super gay best friend who actually liked him but he couldn't possibly appreciate.  will grayson was just whiny.  Period.  NOT a good representation of a depressed person.  He was more interesting than Will Grayson, for sure, but about as likeable as Holden Caulfield. Have I ever mentioned how much I hated Catcher in the Rye?  Mostly because I just wanted to smack Holden Caulfield upside the head.


Yet somehow, the ending had me in tears ... go figure.
