Eleanor & Park : lafinduglobe

 

 

Title: Eleanor & Park

Author: Rainbow Rowell

Published: Published February 26th 2013 by St. Martin's Griffin (first published April 12th 2012)

Genre: Young Adult, Romance.

Format: Kindle 

Notes: I would have really enjoyed this book if it came out when I was a teenager.

 

The buzz on goodreads about this book is what ultimately got me to read it. It has well over 100k reviews and an average rating of 4.2/5. I'll always give a book a chance if it has 4.0 or above in ratings. 

Like I said in my notes above, I would have been in love with this book when I was a teenager. It has a very cute love story between two outcasts. Eleanor is a poor girl with a bad home life and Park has a nice family but is head over heels in love with Eleanor. She's weird but Park can't get enough of her. They bond over comics and music on the bus and that escalates to sneaking out and spending time at Park's. 

The ending will hit you like a ton of bricks. It's realistic and sad. 

I will read Rainbow's other books. Her writing is nice and this book was a quick read. Perfect for reading at work, which is what I did. This book made me feel old.
