You know those books that envelope you completely? The ones that get you reader drunk and in love? The ones that you stay up all night and into the next morning, and only take a break to do the basics of life until you can get back to the story? The ones that while you’re away you replay the conversations and scenes over in your head, and smile about it? That’s ‘Will Grayson, Will Grayson’ for me right now. I seriously can’t recommend the audio version highly enough.
I listened to this book straight (!) through. I knew John Green was brilliant and now I know David Levithan is brilliant. Thanks for writing a story about a subject that is still difficult for a lot of people to comprehend and writing so beautifully. Wonderful

Just finished the book and I'm sitting in the garage in tears. This book was so beautiful, the eloquent writing is beyond skillful - a true work of art. definitely a great tween/teen read!
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!
