Will Grayson, Will Grayson - 'John Green',  'David Levithan' Yay.

I love John Green, I mean, I already knew that. I just love his characters and his voice, and I think he's best when he's not letting silly things like plot get in his way. That's why I loved Paper Towns and An Abundance of Katherines like whoa and am sort of meh-y on Looking for Alaska. He does self-discovery amazingly, and his character interactions are fantastic and he's got the quirky-funny down pat. And this book was all of those things...it's like, an adventure without any big explodey action or huge battles or breakdowns. But it's a really excellent adventure.

And if I didn't already have 58 books checked out from the library, I'd run out and get every book of David Levithan's than I haven't read. Because I get the impression that everything I love about John Green, I will also love about him.

Seriously, what's not to love about the concept? Two guys named Will Grayson meet in a porn store. A porn store which neither of them wants to be in, and neither of them tried to get to. And they have friends who are funny and tragic and horrifying, and they do things that are ordinary and say things that are witty and then they do things that are outstanding and then they have tiny mental breakdowns. Because that's what life is, really! A series of tiny mental breakdowns.

Oh, anyway. Good stuff. I loved the end like crazy.
