Quotes & Awards

  • “If you’re someone who turns your nose up at YA, I promise this audiobook won’t disappoint. Winner of the Odyssey Award for Excellence in audiobooks, John Green and David Levithan narrate their respective characters and deliver pointedly beautiful prose and truly LOL-worthy moments.”

    Bustle.com

  • “Two superstar authors pair up and really deliver the goods, dishing up a terrific high-energy tale…threaded with generous measures of comedy and savvy counsel.”

    Booklist

  • “Green and Levithan craft an intellectually existential, electrically ebullient love story that brilliantly melds the ridiculous with the realistic. In alternating chapters from Will and Will, each character comes lovingly to life…Their story, along with the rest of the cast’s, will have readers simultaneously laughing, crying, and singing at the top of their lungs.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “A wonderfully campy, sweet, romantic gesture in the spectacular style that readers have come to expect from these two YA masters. Although not entirely unfamiliar—or precisely because of it—Will Grayson will find a fast and adoring audience.”

    VOYA

  • “Both narrators encapsulate the mood and personality of their respective Wills, telling the story of how the two boys eventually meet in a Chicago porn shop. The writing and performances are superb.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debi | 2/20/2014

    " A funny coming of age story about 2 Will Graysons and how their lives cross paths and how important appreciation and truth is to the youth of today. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Raina Reyes | 2/12/2014

    " A really good collab, but themes aren't up my alley. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie Sigmund | 2/9/2014

    " This book was strange. It is written in two voices. I felt it was too long to discover the second voice. Both characters go through a huge change, but I don't think the story is developed enough to explain the changes. I really like John Green, so I am blaming his co-author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Faith Jessica | 2/8/2014

    " i couldn't remember the last time i have enjoyed a book this much. it made me stray away from the internet! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bobbi | 1/27/2014

    " Charming and clever. I liked the picture of highschool students as deep thinking individuals who are all going through something. I really enjoyed this book!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mindy | 1/3/2014

    " Interesting concept. I loved Tiny but didn't care too much for the Wills. I liked original, capital letter Will better than smaller case Will. Hated the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Davina | 12/13/2013

    " This book was very... interesting. Can afield say that I've never read a book quite like it. But I enjoyed it! I've never read a book where the main romance was a gay one, and I've never come across someone so overpoweringly gay as Tiny Cooper. Tiny is an incredibly annoying character, but he is meant to be annoying, so it works out. The storyline and characters are intriguing, and overall I enjoyed this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna Lloyd | 12/13/2013

    " Funny, sad and easy to read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pau Martínez | 12/9/2013

    " Absolutely loved it. This is the first time I've read a collaboration book and it didn't disappoint. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah | 10/13/2013

    " I LOVE Will Grayson, Will Grayson! It's wonderful, funny, irritating, heartbreaking, and inspiring. John Green and David Levithan did a great job. And the two narrators (playing the two Will Graysons) are phenomenal! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina Durst | 9/27/2013

    " Probably more along the lines of 3.5 stars; it's funny and has interesting characters/subject. A bit drawn out but I really enjoyed the two different voices. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lixian | 8/11/2013

    " Will Grayson,will grayson is probably one of the best young adults book I have read so far. It really hilarious and original, it's a breathe of fresh air and an enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennie Rich | 1/13/2013

    " I really love this book especially the ending and how everything in the story is tied together because of one giant,caring,gay Tiny Cooper. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennie | 8/22/2012

    " A pleasant surprise of a book. Imagine a movie-length really good episode of "Glee." A really original and entertaining YA book, with enough substance to be truly satisfying. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaren | 7/23/2012

    " This book is funny, rude, funny, sarcastic, & funny. It is dripping with emotions, honesty, & smart wit. Fun read :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 6/5/2012

    " It's more interesting in the beginning but still pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 5/17/2012

    " Some really quality characters, and I love the idea of two authors writing stories side by side. But not something that stuck with me too much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Clark-dixon | 4/9/2012

    " It is half written by John Green, therefore it is my joint favourite book along with his others but I also thoroughly enjoyed David Levithan's section of the book so I look forward to reading more of his books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 3/23/2012

    " I would give this book 7 stars if I could. It's young adult but will resonate with anyone. It was so funny and sweet and sad and real. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fayez | 9/23/2011

    " Oh God. I wrote a lengthy review and halfway through it I lost it. I'll post the review some other day after reading it once again. But, it's a really good book and you should read it because it will amuse you, inspire you, make you laugh, break your heart and make you sigh in bliss. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica | 5/20/2011

    " I think that Tiny Cooper may be one of my favourite fictional characters of all time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zoe | 5/19/2011

    " This book will make you laugh and cry and feel sad and feel happy. The book is brilliantly written by two authors (quite a feat within itself), a book that as soon as I finished the last page I turned to the front to start again thrilled with the novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 5/18/2011

    " This was my first foray into fun reading after finishing graduate school. It was a fun read. It was mostly a fluffy read with some thoughtful moments. I liked the way this book dealt with depression. It also came very close to addressing class issues but backed out at the last minute. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Manar | 5/17/2011

    " I love this book so much. It's been like a year since I last read it, and it's even better than I remembered.

    I really have nothing more to say, other than it's a brilliant book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jasmine | 5/16/2011

    " I thought this book was really differnt :D I enjoyed this book! It was great! But i thought he ending was.. a bit cheesey O.O "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 5/15/2011

    " Al mondo non esistono persone più dissimili dei due protagonisti di questo libro.
    Steso nome, vite opposte.
    Essere amico non è una cosa che scegli, è una cosa che sei. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victoria | 5/15/2011

    " i'm pretty sure i am this will grayson.

    This book ruled. I don't know which part of it John Green wrote, but it doesn't really matter because everyone should read this anyway. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 5/14/2011

    " Great choice for gay/lesbian YA lit, but not my favorite John Green book by a long shot. He co-wrote this with David Levithan, another YA god. Two boys named Will Grayson - one gay, one not. Cute story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 5/11/2011

    " Lovable characters, teens, friendship, and the meaning of life. "
