Eleanor & Park Rainbow Rowell read online review & book description:

#1 New York Times Best Seller!

"Eleanor & Park reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love with a girl, but also what it's like to be young and in love with a book."-John Green, The New York Times Book Review
Bono met his wife in high school, Park says.
So did Jerry Lee Lewis, Eleanor answers.
I'm not kidding, he says.
You should be, she says, we're 16.
What about Romeo and Juliet?
Shallow, confused, then dead.

I love you, Park says.
Wherefore art thou, Eleanor answers.
I'm not kidding, he says.
You should be.
Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits-smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you'll remember your own first love-and just how hard it pulled you under.

    Honestly was a great book. I wish it would’ve been longer, it only took me a week to read :( And definitely wished for a different ending. If I could read it all over again I would

    Sweet and thoughtful love story that is an easy, fun read.
  • Offensive to BIPOCs.

    It describes a main character (half Korean and half white) in stereotypical terms which are offensive. The character never grows from this but rather hates everything to do with his Korean attributes (not his actual heritage because that would mean researching things). It’s very problematic in how it describes minor black characters as well. This is why we need “in their own voices” in publishing.

    This book is very sad and that’s one of the reasons why i couldn’t put it down! I loved the ending of the book and the different backgrounds each character has, definitely read this book!
  • A bittersweet romance.

    Eleanor & Park has been a favorite of mine since high school English class. I fell in love with the book and couldn’t help myself from reading ahead. I don’t normally review things, but this book is worth it. It’s cute, and witty. But also heartbreaking and gut wrenching at times. I so badly wished they would’ve wrote a sequel, but sometimes it’s best to leave things as they are. The book does use crude language so if you’re not into that sort of thing then I would steer clear of it.

    I’m still not sure how I feel about this book. It captured young love perfectly and beautifully yet it was so sad. A book that just left me feeling depressed afterward.
