Opinion of the Book
Honestly, when I met this book I expected a story in which the central theme and around which would turn everything would be the romantic relationship of two guys, specifically the relationship between the two Will Grayson, because for me, that is what the synopsis indicates on the back cover, therefore.
I did not expect much, not something that made me change some perspectives on certain opinions or something like that, but I’m happy because it was not like that, I was wrong, and I was completely wrong.
The book has messages, teachings for the reader, and this is what I highlight the most, neither the characters nor the narration: the teachings.
It is not that the authors change the world with the messages that the book transmits, but they put many things in perspective, in addition to showing how important it is to know what love is, but true love, to love a person not only for kisses, for sex or for caresses, no, the love that exists between friends, between family members and not necessarily between a couple, but also.
What happens is that we are used to saying “I love you” and “I love you” only to our / our girlfriend / boyfriend, forgetting that although we have the feeling, we can also and we must tell our parents and our brothers that we love them, that we love them, and as in the book they show it.
Know how to correspond friendships and make it clear to those friends with whom we share so much that we love them, that it is not the same love and love as the one we tell our partner, but that we want them, be one or be five the friends that deserve to say I love you, but to be told, it is not too late when we understand this, it does not matter that our “I love you” or “I love you” is, “no you know how much I appreciate you as a friend “or” I love you mom “.
Since some find it more difficult than others to express themselves, but at the end of the day, whatever it may be, it is expressed.
