It's just some things I need to remember , feelings and thoughts I don't wanna forget till I get around to write a proper review . 1 - I love this book 2 - this author tried to sneak one on me to get me crying like a little. not fair, not fair at all 3 - money is superficial , is not as important as anything else, but if you don't have it, anything else can go away in a blink of an eye 4 - I disagree when Jr disagree about Tolstoy . Just because I love the book I don't need to agree with everything . just saying... 5 - friendship is not suppose to be understood 6 - alcohol keep you from the world. it isolates you from sights , feelings, sounds and I agree with the author on this . but, when all you see is pain, all you feel is pain, numbness can appeal like a bottle of water in the desert 7 - challenge yourself to the unknown and you can be amazed 8 - expect greatness to achieve greatness 9 - forgive, let go of the anger. I know is hard, I'm still learning how to do this 10 - when somebody you love dies it sucks. you feel like dying too. the thing is, what about who stayed with you? what about the living? show love for those who stuck around. be happy to have them. they deserve to be appreciated . 11 - apple used to mean something totally different to me before 12 - this is a good story, you should read it....more

How it moved me and how made me think of life and deep stuff like that. I’m not gonna do that. If I tell you my version of this book you’ll have preconception that will blind you for all the things I didn’t see while reading it. Books are journeys, very privet and personal journeys, so you really need to take this one alone. Keep your eyes, ears and mind open or else you’ll miss a lot. When present, be present. Let the story take you away. Don’t start this halfhearted, jump in the lake with both feet and let the waters cover your head.
With every JG’s book I learn something new. I open my eyes a little wider. Is not always easy and usually makes me cry either of happiness or sadness. Nevertheless, makes me feel something real about the story and especially for the characters.
This is what I learned from this book:
“Things fall apart. Nothing can last, not even the earth itself. Suffering is caused by desire and the satiation of desire meant the satiation of suffering. When you stop wishing things wouldn't fall apart you stop suffering when they did.”
When an author seems to know your every hidden feel and thoughts, man, you are screwed. I know it sounds bad, but in a way is great. SureWill&Will
When an author seems to know your every hidden feel and thoughts, man, you are screwed. I know it sounds bad, but in a way is great. Sure it makes you face all the shit that you usually hide from, but in a very surreal way, it makes you understand things and yourself. Sometimes I do stuff I don't even see it, much less know why you do the shitty things that you do. Well, that's the magic of the mimi representation stuff. When you have this sort of out of body experience things get clearer in your head. You realize how perspective matter. Straight Will Grayson is really a girl, sentimental and all full of drama. I can relate to that 100%, but I also relate to gay Will Grayson and his dark view of life. This is kind of hard to explain. It's easy to say what you don't like about stuff, but to say and explained the things you love can be tricky. David and John have a way with words, that's a fact. I love them and with each book I read I become more of a stalker of these two. Just like the zombie craving for brains, I crave for their words. Arrrrrrrg *me need words* The audio is one of the best audios I've ever heard and that is saying a lot. They absorb every word, sigh in the sigh parts, screams in the screams parts and even below a high not in the singing parts. I'm in love with this audio, for real <3 I love the happy feeling I got in the end of this book. I wish more authors could make endings that well. Bottom line is, all this talk can simply be shortened with one sentence: My name is not Will Grayson, but I love Tiny Cooper. <3
Now I'll take a minute to show my love for this book and these two authors with a bunch of thumbs up.
I wish I had a friend like him growing up. Hi is the kind of guy that makes you fall in love with him doesn’t matter what is yoI’m in love with Paul.
I wish I had a friend like him growing up. Hi is the kind of guy that makes you fall in love with him doesn’t matter what is your inclination. Gay, straight, bi, whatevah. He is just an extremely lovable guy. I love this book. It’s simple as that. For a few hours I get to be inside a wonderful and welcoming world where acceptance is reality. We have a quarterback that is a drag queen and also the homecoming queen. He is FABULOUS. Hey, don’t judge u.u
Paul’s mother is the best mom ever, his dad is a standup guy all the way around and his home is full of love and fun dinner games. He can eat pancakes for dinner, I guess this says at all. From the childihood revolutionary plays to the new and totally awesome made-up language between two friends, this book took me into a journey of awesomeness with rainbow cover chocolate and… ok, I think you got how much I love this book. This author is the best to write love stories and create that sweet and real bond between characters. He can make them real in a way that few authors can. The relationship between the main characters is so,so,so sweet and it doesn’t matter if it is between a girl and a boy, a boy and a boy or a girl and a girl. The feelings are pure and ...*sigh* so lovely.
But this book is not just rainbows and cotton candy, I shed some tears in it too. But is the kind of tears you shed with a smile in your face cose is so dame beautiful.
Bottom line is, I love this book, I love the characters, I love the writing, I love the áudio and I freaking love Infinite Darlene in all of her glory. <3

We are in the future where, after a bio war only the old people (aka enders) and the teens (aka starters) are alive. The thing is, old people are really old, like 150yo and have all the money and essentially rule the world.
The starters have no rights, are poor, really poor and live as outlaws in a world where the old people are evil (most of them anyways). I'm not really sure I buy this, but is not so out of the box I would take off my list (aka The Amazing Apocalypse Theories’ List), so it's still on the list. The main character is this starter girl that has a little brother and want to make money to save them from a life in misery. So she finds this clinic called Prime Destinations. The job is easy and you would get the money in your sleep, literally. Starters can't have jobs until they have 19yo, so she would be a donor and would get pay lots of money to (get this) rent her body to enders to get the feeling how to be young again. Body snatcher much? Yep, I think so. But still, very interesting stuff.
They have this contract that has all this "don'ts" and if the renters, aka enders, brake the rules they pay like a gadillian of dollars. It looks like bullshit? Yep. Still believable? yep. I'm not gonna say Callie, the starter, had no other choice, she had, but desperate times ask for stupid choices. So she decides to do this crazy stuff and after three rentals she would be free with her payment and a better life. That would be great, but then we wouldn't have a very long story, would we? As you can imagine, the stuff is deeper than it seems. Human rights, sacrifice, priorities and a whole lot of etic discussion fill this book. I like it very much, but I can't say the plot is that perfect. The idea is better than the execution. The action part is really good, but the interaction seems a little robotic. It felt a little cold and flat. Since this is the first book and I know there's a second, I hope this get better. As far as twists and turns, this one is good. I had some moments I was surprised and that's good, but I wish it had more warmth in the writing. All in all is a very good book and I'm certainly gonna read the sequel.
