Will Grayson, Will Grayson book review

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I've been super busy! Anyway, I started reading Will Grayson, Will Grayson about 4 days ago and I've already finished (sad I know!).
When deciding which book to buy from amazon it was between this or An Abundance of Katherine's which is also by John Green, I'm not sure what pushed me towards this direction but I'm happy it did as I can honestly say this book is different to any other book I've read before!

Firstly, if you're going to read it do not make the mistake I did and just jump into reading it, then when you're a quarter of the way through get so confused you have to read it all again. You need to know the rule (it's a complex book haha). Basically, John Green and David Leuithan narrate the book together, each one is a different Will Grayson and The chapters go from one Will Grayson (which uses capitals throughout the chapter) to another Will Grayson (who doesn't use capitals) this is really confussing if you don't know about it and it's not made clear in the book at all so that's what you need to know before reading it!

One of the other reasons I love this book is that normally when you read a book you're in one persons shoes and you read the book from their point of view and narrative whereas in this book you see it from two, a depressed boy who faces family problems and is gay but is fine with it,and a quiet boy who has a gay bestfriend and starts to like a girl and whatever story you hear you hear it from both sides, and opinions! For me this is new as I've never come across a book like this before and I like it!

Also, this book deals with sexuality a lot, and puts you in the shoes of someone who is gay and someone who has a best friend who is gay. It also deals with depression, I'm not normally someone who likes to read books about depression because they get me down a lot but this book didn't do that to me because there's so much humour surrounding the depression, it doesn't make depression out to be something funny nor something that you would want it just doesn't make you feel like you're that character and you're that sad. 

do believe that this is a book I could read over and over as I find it so easy to do that with any of Greens books, however I do think that this isn't one of my favourites from him but I wouldn't go as far as to say it's a bad book, I 100% recommend it to anyone!
