Summary from Goodreads


“Two misfits.One extraordinary love.
Eleanor… Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough…Eleanor.

Park… He knows she’ll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There’s a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises…Park.

Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.”


Rating: 4/5


It is my first time reading Rainbow Rowell’s book. At first, I was not used to with the way she narrated. I meant, she was using third-person’s perspective. And it was also my first time reading book with the way like that. But now, I’m getting used to it.
I enjoyed Eleanor & Park so much. I loved this book. Eleanor & Park is funny, sad, and sincere. First things first about Eleanor, her lifes sucks, she is fat (she thinks herself fat) and poor, the oldest of five kids with a painfully difficult home. She is known as crazy red hair and always wear weird clothes. Park is half-korean (I like him so much) and is into alternative music and comic book.
Both Eleanor and Park have their own issues accepting their self-worth whether it be comparing their look to others or their family sees them. Eleanor comes from a neglectful situation and got bullied at school. Park is struggling with his own identity and masculinity. They both bond being considered somewhat outsiders, also comic and music brought they together.
 
Eleanor meets Park on the school bus. Park lets her sit next to him because he feels sorry for her. Gradually, they fall in love. With Park, she is able to escape from reality to a safer place where there are no swear words and allow to just be herself.  
 
Huff, you should read it. It’s a very emotional books. I got teary eyes while reading it. Not only because Eleanor’s sad situation but also the love between Eleanor and Park. Their love is so intense. I hope I got this love when I was in highschool. Ha! The ending provided enough angst to break my heart but just enough to patch it right up.
