really liked it

I had a hard time connecting with both Will Grayson the Odd (Green's Will of the odd chapters) and will grayson the even (Levithan's will of the even chapters) at first, but by the time they met, I was enjoying both story lines more, and after that I read it in a sitting. Tiny was amazingly self-centered, but he kept me laughing, which is I guess is a lot of what the people in the book see in him, too. I was never ready to forgive Maura, so I guess will (the even) grew up more than me in the process of the book. It was easy to consider things like identity, relationships, and truth as part of such a funny, authentic book.

Zeke What did you think of the ending?

Andrea I dunno. The plan they hatched seemed a little hokey and the whole thing was kind of over the top. Just having a musical about the life of one student was weird. I couldn't dislike the musical because the spilled details in conversations throughout the novel kept making me laugh, though.
