With books as good as this one, I never get the chance to write a half-way point blog. I finish it so quickly, that by the time I have a moment to blog about it, I'm already done. Needless to say, I really liked this book.
At first, when the book jumped from the first Will to the second Will, I didn't know what was happening. One minute the chapter was grammatically written and the next it was in all lowercase. I hadn't done any prior research on the book, so I didn't know that the two authors wrote each of the different Wills in alternating chapters: one writing the odd chapters and the other the even chapters. Once I caught on, though, I was totally into it.
I loved the distinct voices of the two Wills especially when they were interacting with each other. I loved how they were both assholes in their own way, one because of his rules and the other because of his depression. I loved the truthfulness of the story despite the rudeness of it (though that makes it even more truthful). But, most of all, I loved Tiny.
I just loved the idea of this bigger than life character called Tiny. He was the heart of the story and the heart of both Wills. If it wasn't for him, I don't think either Will's plotline would have been the same. He was definitely my favorite character.
No date yet as to when the book club is meeting, but as always, I will keep you informed.
Blogs are whatever we make them. Defining ‘Blog’ is a fool’s errand.
