My Review: 3 stars
I was really confused at first with the story line then with both Will Grayson's they're the same in a way that they almost think alike but in some ways different like their living conditions,environment,set of friends,school,district etc. I didn't quite noticed the change of fonts in terms of narration for I'm so focused in reading the whole story I thought it's just how they express themselves that time (like big letters for angry or small for neutral or normal tone)what I didn't know before that I know now is that both authors jiving in introducing these sets of characters that would collide in the middle of it all. When it comes with their perspectives in life,love,school,being a teenager and accepted in society they somewhat flourished and improved their character developed as time pass what I liked about this is that it's straight forward and gay! beware for it contains quite a lot of curses I'm surprised there's no censorship at all!:O
I thought about what if the other will grayson's friend didn't pretend to be a boy but simply a girl...would he still be gay? or would it be have another end result?
Tiny's production at the beginning was all about him (self centered)but in the end of course being gay and all the story turned out to be the most wonderful musical I've ever laid my eyes upon, very touching and romantic.
I somewhat identified some of myself with the characters a little bit of everything with everyone involved like Tiny's queer oddball moments and Will Grayson's silent thoughts. I may say it's full of teenage angst whatever you call it these days hormones? perhaps but we all know deep inside we'll surpass that level and just basically moved on with life.
