Why do I love YA books so much??? This one has several truly intriguing characters - Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and Tiny Cooper. The central character is Tiny Cooper, a larger than life-size gay football player. Will Grayson #1 is his best friend - then isn't. Will Grayson #2 becomes Tiny's boyfriend - then un-becomes his boyfriend. In the end Will #1 and Tiny are best friends again, and Will #2 shares his appreciation for Tiny in a dramatic way. Loved it!
Wonderfully narrated/performed by Andrews and Podehl.
Tiny Cooper, of course! He was loveable and loving and all-inclusive and always searching for the best in everyone around him.
I was near tears a couple of times when the despair of life hit the Will Graysons. The authors just seemed to write with depth and understanding of the angst that is the teenage rite of passage.
Avoid reading every screen name! Lessen the exaggerated voices, especially Tiny.
More realistic dialogue between teens. Irony and voices did not work for me, too forced.
Most all other books written by both the authors.
Loved the story, very personable.
The narration was terrific, and the character acting was my favorite.
Would read again, and highly recommend it to any John Green or David Levithan fans.
Really to anybody.
The narrators are so expressive! I liked the story, but for the first time, I enjoyed the performance of it even more.
The story is s fresh turn. Straight people and gay people are friends!
I usually don't write reviews. For anything. However, I just can't pass up the chance to say "Absolutely Well Done!!"
I loved the novel when I read it, but I LOVE the audiobook even more. Kudos to Nick Podehl and MacLeod Andrews for lending their voices so well to all the characters--especially Tiny Cooper! It's uncanny how he sounds exactly like how I imagined him when I was reading the book. Please, please do Hold Me Closer too!!
This is my fourth time listening! Highly recommend for anyone who needs a laugh as well as something insightful. Plus there is Singing
I would love to see "Hold Me Closer" on stage! Listening I'm imagine how to stage it, the final scene, the rigging, the timing, the acrobatic move above the lights, the stunt fall. seems impossible, but IT WOULD BE AWESOME!
