Book õ Eleanor Park È Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor is the new girl in town and with her chaotic family life her mismatched clothes and unruly red hair she couldn't stick out if she triedPark is the boy at the back of the bus Edit 519 It's been 6 years since I read this book and it has not aged well This just shows how much we really needed not only diverse books but #ownvoices authors too “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 youHe closed his eyes and pressed his head back into his pillowI don't think I even breathe when we're not together she whispered 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 the latter are meant to be hot Which could have been interesting because I've always preferred reading about the so called freaks losers and ugly people but these two books follow the same generic pattern of teen love stories with a whole ton of behind the scenes angsty issues Though this one was less entertainingIt's 1986 Eleanor is the new girl and she is not only genetically made to look like a victim but she does herself no favours by pairing her looks with a bizarre fashion sense Having nowhere to sit on the school bus she takes a seat next to the clearly reluctant Park Park is half Korean in an extremely white school but he is given enough respect by the popular kids to help him get by His home life unlike Eleanor's is pretty much perfect apart from a bit of badgering by his dad Slowly over time these two individuals develop a relationship that is formed around stuff like reading comics together and exchanging mix tapes And other nerdy things like Star Wars and Shakespeare which I could easily relate to I think one of the major problems I had with this book is that I failed to get a sense of the attraction between them Their relationship to me seemed suited to friendship than love The progression from reluctant bus partners to friendship was natural in the story but I then felt that the jump from that to romantic andor sexual feelings was too fast and unbelievableNot only that but where I felt the start of their relationship avoided the usual cliches and did something a bit different like the way their relationship begins without them speaking to one another I felt that once they were together it uickly dissolved into the usual sweet nothings and thoughts like I'll die if I never see him again after knowing each other for a few weeks This isn't instalove but it's silliness Or perhaps I really am just a cold hearted unromantic person And I also didn't like the way chubby Eleanor achieves validation through Park “He made her feel like than the sum of her parts” I did like the well rounded feel of both characters though The author gave them many different levels making them experience a range of emotions in a realistic way I also thought the darker element of this novel were mostly handled well Eleanor's home life is revealed gradually in a frightening way But it does just make it easier to compare this book to Pushing the Limits And I don't like it when serious issues like domestic violence are used to fuel the love angst and create a Romeo and Juliet kind of forbidden love scenario It just leaves a bad taste in my mouthEleanor Park will be great hopefully for fans of uirky nerdy romance stories with an underlying dark angsty side and for those who love nerdy references If you don't usually like young adult romance and were eying this up as possibly being the book to change all that you'll probably be disappointed It has good parts but it's not that different from anything else out thereBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube | Store

How could you want me like I want you?He was uiet He wanted everything she'd just said to be the last thing he heard He wanted to fall asleep with 'I want you' in his ears” ````````````````The setting? 1986I was five years old but I do remember random tidbits of the eightiesmemories mostly accompanied by a cringe But not here This story was perfection I think I liked it even better than Fangirl simply because it was dramatic and poignant Eleanor and Park the people stole my breathThe initial story starts out with Eleanor the new girl in school getting on the bus for the first time and having no place to sit Everyone is staring no one helps her out including Park Finally Park caves in and scoots over so that she can sit down but he does it grudgingly almost angry with the stupid redheaded girl in the frumpy man clothes who made such a spectacle of herself Over the next weeks these two go from pointedly ignoring each other to a reluctant yet silent cameraderie bonding on the bus over Park's comic books and eventually music Once their silence is broken the floodgates sort of open and they become fascinated with one anotherThe dual point of view here uite literally MADE THIS STORY Being in Park's head as well as Eleanor's was paramount to my enjoyment Park has a romantic soul made evident by the way he thinks of his Eleanor the way he goes from train wreck curiosity to utter fascination and adoration with the awkward girl with so many secretshe stole my heart```````````````` “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” ````````````````These characters are uniueso new and fresh the word has been reinvented Eleanor comes from a broken homeuite literally her home is broken Her parents both not so great to begin with are divorced Her mom remarried a man who loves to drink and loves to bullyand bully he does but he does so much Eleanor's back story is one to make me feel like the world's best mom uite simply because I could never allow what happened to her to happen to my daughters And yeahher mom ALLOWS this bastard to treat Eleanor like trash allows her daughter to be left alone and scared without the support and love that a parent owes their children Park on the other hand has a wonderful home life His Dad met his Mom in Korea married her and brought her home They still kiss and hold each other like they haven't seen each other in months They are simply adorable and no matter how Park rolls his eyes the reader can tell that his parent's love for each other gives Park a wonderful sense of security that he absolutely takes for grantedas kids really should be able toIt takes awhile for Park to realize what kind of life Eleanor is leading```````````````` “ “My girlfriend is sad and uiet and keeps me up all night worrying about her” ” ````````````````It seemed to me that this high school love story is one of the few that I can actually see continuing on through the years and becoming The bond between Eleanor and Park is already so deep so strong Nothing will keep them apart They are young but they are realistic They are also made for each other and though Eleanor seems to be skeptical I know that deep down she wants this to be a forever kind of thing than any other wish in the world aside from her tragic circumstances against all of the odds she just wants Park ```````````````` “Nothing was dirty With ParkNothing could be shamefulBecause Park was the sun and that was the only way Eleanor could think to explain it” ```````````````` This goes down as one of my favorite books of 2013 and Park goes onto my favorite heroes shelf Because he is the best kind of herothe one who saves his girl against all odds who fights against the world because of his devotion I loved this story with all my heart It was just beautiful Recommended read for everyone
