Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Monday, July 11, 2016

When I first heard about this book I was very intrigued because I haven’t read a lot of books like this one. The plot and characters were so interesting to me. I immediately put it on my TBR list. I only got it few weeks ago and totally by surprise. My sister bought it for me and I was thrilled. It’s in the hard paperback and the cover is so beautiful.

I first want to say that this is my first book by Rainbow Rowell and I completely fell in love with her writing style. It’s so natural and easy going. I got lost in the words, sentences and chapters. This book was written in a unique style. I enjoyed that the chapters weren’t very long and that they were written from the perspective of Eleanor and Park. The physical characteristic of the characters are deep and you can really get to know Eleanor’s and Park’s state of mind. 

To summaries this young adult book, it’s about Eleanor and Park. As you might already realized by the title. Eleanor has a read hear and has a different fashion style. She comes from a unstable family. Her mom is very pretty and she has 5 brothers and sister. They all live together with her stepfather who isn’t a nice guy. Although she’s insecure she don’t won’t to be like the others.
Park is an Asian boy who lives in a perfect family. His mom is from Korea and he is the only Asian boy in their Street. He feels insecure and finds safety in comics and music.

They meet one day in the school bus and their adventure began. I don’t want to revile too much or give any spoilers. If you didn’t already you definitely need to read this book. I can’t wait to read more books by Rainbow Rowell because I know I’m going to enjoy them very much.
