Eleanor & Park Reviews

    I have so many thoughts and ideas and things I want to discuss, and I can't possible put them all here, but here are some of my main thinkings:

    1) PARENTS: Parent's are such an integral part of teenage life - they are the reason you can do things, the reason you can't do things, the reason you have money, etc. This book had parents that were just as important, interesting, and developed as the main characters and I so appreciated that. I especially enjoyed Park's parents: they were so complex and

    AMAZING BOOK! Heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time! I wasn't expecting to care so much about these characters and their relationship but I was completely caught up in this story. It's told in 3rd-person past tense, which I sometimes have trouble connecting with, but not so in this case! I feel like I really know both Eleanor and Park, and I love them both separately but I especially love them together. It seemed like their relationship shouldn't work, but it does, so well. I was g ...more

    Wow! There was so much about this book that I really loved. 'Eleanor & Park' was touching and beautiful in it's simplicity. This book captured the essence of first love and the perils of high school, while also tackling some serious issues, like abuse.

    I listened to the Audible version and I have to give kudos to the narrator(s). The narration was extremely well done. The voices of the characters really drew you in and made you feel like you were right there in the moment with the characters.

    If I could use one word to describe this story, it would be "adorable". Eleanor and Park fell in love on the bus listening to '80's music and reading comic books. Can it get any cuter than that? I submit that it cannot! Told in alternating points-of-view, this story will grab onto you and not let you go until the ending.

    Eleanor is the new girl in school. She describes herself as chubby and plain. After her mother's abusive husband kicked Eleanor, she moved in with some family friends. Now, a ye

    "I want to be the last person who ever kisses you, too...That sounds bad, like a death threat or something. What I'm trying to say is, you're it. This is it for me."


    Their love story was slow-building, which is probably my favorite kind of love story (Ahem...The Experiment in Terror series and The Fault in Our Stars). Park lends Eleanor his headphones and Sony Walkman, and she is immediately drowning in the emotions the music evokes. The adorableness continues when he makes her mix tapes and brings comic books especially for her. It doesn't take long for their seat buddy status to change from acquaintances to friends to something more. Leading up to the "shouting-from-the-rooftops I love you" moment, Eleanor and Park share secret looks and stolen glances.

    Let me tell you, Eleanor & Park contains the hottest hand-holding scene of ALL TIME, hands down (pun intended).

    Park always tugged on Eleanor's scarf or nudged her with his shoulder, but he never actually touched her skin. The build-up to this was almost unbearable.

    Park

    "As soon as he touched her, he wondered how he'd gone so long without doing it. He rubbed his thumb through her palm and up her fingers, and was aware of her every breath."

    "When he touched, Eleanor's hand, he recognized her. He knew."



    Oh my Lawd!

    Eleanor:

    "Disintegrated.

    Like something had gone wrong beaming her onto the Starship Enterprise.

    If you've ever wondered what that feels like, it's a lot like melting-but more violent.

    Maybe Park had paralyzed her with his ninja magic, his Vulcan handhold, and now he was going to eat her.

    That would be awesome."


    Eleanor tries hard to hide her family life from Park, but he eventually finds out the horrible truth and is willing to do anything to help her get out. His protectiveness and caring nature is what I love most about him. He no longer cared what anyone at school said about her or what his family thought of her. He only wanted her. Just her. No matter what.

    At first, the alternating POV was a little jarring. It was different than other alternating POV in that it was a little choppy. However, once I adjusted to the writing style, I couldn't put it down. Rowell pulled my heart into this story and wrapped it around these characters. I was rooting for Park and Eleanor and, and I wanted to cause serious bodily harm to anyone that got in the way of their happily ever after.

    When I finished this book, all I could say was, "Awwwhhh." If you're looking for a relatively light read that's insanely cute sprinkled with Elvis Costello and Watchmen, then this is for you. Eleanor and Park has been compared to John Green's "The Fault in Our Stars," but don't worry, you will NOT bawl your eyes out reading this. You may, however, be sighing throughout the whole freaking book.

    *I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    If you've experienced that first love - that heart-wringing, soul-squeezing, crush-the-air-out-of-your-lungs-whenever-you're-apart first love - this book will bitch slap your feels all to hell.

    I love it. I love its warmth and its vibrancy, its heartache and its pain, its humor, its meanness, the ugliness, the beauty, the crying, the laughter, the sarcasm. I love Eleanor and I love Park, and I love that there's still a tiny chance for them...and for everyone whose first love was torn away. Ev

    HOLY BATMAN THAT ENDING. I'M A MESS. THAT HURT, BUT IT DIDN'T AT THE SAME TIME. WHAT IS THIS FEELING EVEN? NYEAAHHH.

  • Brandi



    I absolutely adored this book! I don't really know what else to say. It was such a wonderful experience. Eleanor and Park have become a part of me, I was completely wrapped up in their story. Their voices are so real and honest. I love them. Plain and Simple. My only compliant is that I wanted more.

    “I don’t like you, Park. Sometimes I think I live for you”

    Highly recommend this one!!

  • Christy

    5 stars!



    “You’re my favorite person of all time.”


    Eleanor & Park… this has been sitting on my kindle for a year. HOW has this been just sitting on my kindle for a year??? First off, I’m going to say if you have this book, don’t let it just sit on your kindle. Read it, listen to it, whatever. Just make sure you don’t overlook this one. It’s a book that deserves to be read. These are some of the most special characters and Rainbow Rowell writes some of the best YA ever. So read the book.
