Eleanor & Park

  1. Rainbow Rowell writes books Sometimes she writes about adults ATTACHMENTS and LANDLINE Sometimes she writes about teenagers ELEANOR PARK and FANGIRL But she always writes about people who talk a lot And people who feel like they re screwing up And people who fall in love.When she s not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don t really matter in the big scheme of things.She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.More at rainbowrowell.

  1. Should I break out in song and dance to Baa, Baa, Black Sheep One lonely star I m just as surprised as you are, considering I just KNEW going into Eleanor Park that I would love it, love it, love it What reason would I have to believe otherwise Almost all of my friends loved this book and have sworn fealty to the Goddess of Feels and Might, Rainbow Rowell And I get it because she is a pretty awesome person and I think she is totally lovely So trust me when I say I REALLY wanted to love this book [...]

  2. 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 themd for everyone whose first love was torn away Even if you never [...]


  4. I ve often said that nobody should write for teens who doesn t remember what it was like to be one Rainbow Rowell remembers, and has captured it beautifully in this book.

  5. I don t like you, Park, she said, sounding for a second like she actually meant it I her voice nearly disappeared think I live for you He closed his eyes and pressed his head back into his pillow I don t think I even breathe when we re not together, she whispered Three stars is not a wholly negative rating but I have to admit that I m disappointed with this one Eleanor Park has enjoyable parts, but the only real difference I can see between this and Pushing the Limits is that the characters in t [...]

  6. I fully admit that I m a sucky book reviewer This book for me was so personal that this review is just for me Eleanor is just that girl The weird one that people pick on Who knows exactly why She doesn t stand up for herself, she doesn t fight back I was that girl This is me my 10th grade year.If this book had been around then I would have completely worn the pages out As it is I feel like highlighting and just re reading the thing until it falls apart.Talking about Romeo and Juliet Eleanor s co [...]

  7. READ THIS QUOTE, MY ROMANTIC HEARTED FOOLSREAD IT AND LET YOUR HEART GO PITTER PAT I don t like you, Park, she said, sounding for a second like she actually meant it I her voice nearly disappeared think I live for you He closed his eyes and pressed his head back into his pillow I don t think I even breathe when we re not together, she whispered Which means, when I see you on Monday morning, it s been like sixty hours since I ve taken a breath That s probably why I m so crabby, and why I snap at [...]

  8. I should have read Eleanor Park during winter, when it s freezing outside.Because it completely warmed my heart, and it s so hot already, I thought my heart would burst into flames inside my chest.Believe me or not, but I always thought I was immune to the usual young adult romanticism in books You know hand holding, shy smiles and flushed cheeks I didn t think I would ever feel actual butterflies reading a YA contemporary romance book.But I did And it took me by such surprise that at first I di [...]

  9. She never felt like she belonged anywhere, except for when she was lying on her bed, pretending to be somewhere else I randomly decided to read Eleanor and Park again because I have no chill.Also, I recently picked up Fangirl for the tenth time , so that definitely had a weighing hand in whether I should reread of Rainbow Rowell s stories But I don t have any regrets for rereading this wondrous book This review contains spoilers.Eleanor is the new girl in town, and with her chaotic family, her [...]

  10. 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 grinnin [...]

  11. years after everyone else, i have finally read this book and now i m all caught up on the zeitgeist phew and damn, now i understand why rainbow rowell is so beloved i mean, i read Fangirl and thought it was excellent, but this one, while it is not as good as Fangirl, does a couple of things so freaking well that it gave me all the swoons and the swirls rainbow rowell has this ability to tap into the teenage experience that is a little spooky and while john green gets all the credit for being the [...]

  12. 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 confus [...]

  13. You can find the full review and about this book on my blog ____________________________________________ Eleanor was right She never looked nice.She looked like art, and art wasn t supposed to look nice it was supposed to make you feel something ____________________________________________5 PERFECT STARS You can find the full review and about this book on my blog I never read contemporary books.I have read like 4 maybe till now and didn t really like them.Anyway I decided to give this book a t [...]

  14. This review originally appeared on Clear Eyes, Full Shelves Reviewer s Note added 2 5 2016 Please be aware that I have turned off all notifications for this review and do not check or respond to comments It s not that I don t like y all it s just that I d rather spend my time talking about books that I actually, ya know, like.I have thought about Eleanor Park everyday since I read it two months ago.That s not a compliment.In some respects, my attitude is perhaps not terribly fair because a parti [...]

  15. I know I said I wasn t going to do a review, because I feel that my status updates are pretty telling enough, butFirst, I just don t see Park s parents as a good example of a couple that made it against all odds, as John Green implies There is NOTHING in this book about how or why they fell in love As an Asian woman, I look at it through a disbelieving lens It sounds like a white man saving an Asian woman from her poor, lower rung, terrible life She is basically forced to assimilate into this n [...]

  16. He made her feel like than the sum of her parts RE READ February 24, 2018I know many people dislike this book and prefer Rowell s other books instead, but this book holds a special place in my heart I haven t read every books by Rainbow Rowell, but I plan on doing so soon Eleanor Park was actually the first English book I ever read I remember going to Wal Mart one day to the book section Growing up, I loved reading and would always read Spanish books from the library, so I wanted to actually bu [...]

  17. UPDATE 2017 Look at my new special edition of the book I love it so much The inside pages on front and back are awesome I love the new cover too melissa413readsalot.cThey met on the bus.Eleanor was the new girl, the girl with the vibrant red hair, the one everyone made fun of, but if they only knew what she had to go through at home Park is the quiet boy that just wants to be left a lone to do his own thing He s the only one that would let Eleanor sit down Park shared his comics and music with E [...]

  18. for people who saw my original review, I want to say I still 100% stand by everything I said the reason I m deleting it is because, as a white reviewer, I didn t want to talk over East Asians who have reviewed this book and talked about why it was racist So I will briefly list my issues with it, and then link to ownvoices reviews instead They say what I did and much but are written by Asian reviewers who s experience and knowledge is better then mineTHE ISSUES I HAD sterotyping of Park and othe [...]

  19. 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.Eleanor is a young girl wh [...]

  20. This book was everything I ve been searching for since Anna and the French Kiss It gave me that melty, clenchy feeling in my chest, the warm fuzzies in my stomach I was basically a mess throughout the entire thing These two characters had my emotions going up and down like someone was beating on them with one of those sledgehammers at a carnival, trying to get them to climb to the top of that lit up pole again and again And every time I thought they couldn t go any higher, Park would do or say s [...]

  21. 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 It says a lot [...]

  22. 1.5 5 starsDNF at page 195Apologies in advance to anyone who liked this book This is simply my opinion.Looks like it s time for another unnecessarily long gif filled rant review, folks My friends, after this book Me, after this book Never have I ever been happier to check a book out from the library Did I even read the same book as everyone else I was expecting a swoon worthy misfit love story Did I get that Nope I got whiny characters and angst A lot of angst Seriously, a appropriate title for [...]

  23. I need to state right away that YA is not one of my favorite genres I hated the Twilight books, I m not a fan of paranormal romance and I ve been avoiding the flood of YA dystopian novels I want this to be clear because if you like YA, than my negative reaction maybe won t apply to you You may love this book, as many others already have.I wanted to read this novel because it received several glowing reviews and it was being compared to John Green s The Fault in Our Stars, which I really liked El [...]

  24. Oh, man This book made me feel ALL THE EMOTIONS I ugly cried at least five times while reading it And, I can t lie, I didn t actually want to read it at all It was one of those books I kept hearing buzz about, and words like gritty and romance and abuse and it just didn t sound like my kind of book at all I also was a little annoyed that it was set in the 80 s what teen today is really interested in reading books about the 80 s But somehow it all came together for me I loved Eleanor and Park bot [...]

  25. 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 I don t like you, Park Sometimes I think I live for you Highly recommend this one

  26. I thought this was going to be a lighthearted contemporary by Rainbow RowellI never even glanced at the description, but I soon found there were deeper, sometimes darker subjects layered in with the sweetest, most passionate love story between sixteen year olds Eleanor and Park, who each felt they did not fit into the typical normal high school student mold It is set in Omaha, Nebraska in 1986, and I really enjoyed the mid 80 s references and details contained throughout the bookok me back to th [...]

  27. Eleanor and Park are my literary OTP Screw Romeo and Juliet Or Anastasia and Christian Grey Rainbow Rowell is able to make me feel way about a scene with two characters holding hands, than any other author with an explicit sex scene ever could.

  28. 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 year later, s [...]
