Eleanor & Park is an absolutely breathtaking story that highlights one extreme to another. The statement of opposites attracting is evident in our two main characters as they strike up an unlikely relationship. I cannot begin to describe how much I fell in love with Eleanor and Park and their story. It’s told, often in one sentence snippets, with such a powerful passion that its hard to put down.
It is not a “dirty” book, however not clean either. The cursing is incredibly high, with pretty much every word you can think of (multiple times), and the sexual references/comments are also very present. There are no “sex scenes”, though a couple that come very close with many details of feelings and observations that are the result of the many passionate and detailed kisses. Abuse, drinking, smoking, drugs, and some suicidal thoughts are also mentioned but on a much lesser scale than the previously mentioned.
Eleanor & Park have a story that will undoubtedly be remembered, and it would have received a full five stars from me based on that alone, however I am deducting one star because of the negative content. Therefore the final rating is 4 out of 5 stars. I recommend it for readers 16+.
The book Eleanor and Park takes place in August of 1986, in Omaha Nebraska. The story is about 2 Teenagers who fall in love in high school. Park is a half Korean half White 16 year old boy and Eleanor is a rather large 16 year old girl with red hair. They first meet on the school bus during 10th grade. Park is someone that his classmates considered a loner. He tries not to make a target of himself by offering Eleanor to sit by him. Despite the challenge over the coming weeks they share a seat on the bus and begin a friendship. At the time Eleanor’s home situation is very difficult to deal with. She becomes dependent on the friendship with Park as an outlet of happiness. Her relationship with her step-father is thin on ice as prior to meeting Park she was kicked out of their house during an argument, and it took her mother a year to let her come home. Parks home life is drastically different. Parks father is harder on him than his brother. His father wishes that Park becomes a different kind of teenage boy. There's a lot more of love shown in Park’s household than Eleanor’s. Eleanor is constantly harassed at school by not only the students but the faculty plays a role as well. Park is her protector from the bullies she deals with on a daily basis. He even got into a fight with one his friends because he was giving Eleanor a hard time. Park is a lonely troubled boy and Eleanor has her issues. The relationship between them grows everyday they spend. They become inseparable and really love each others presence. Park got a smooch before winter break and that really set the tone that they really are falling for each other. So if you look at the messages this book tries to convey, love is love. It doesn't matter how hard your life is or your appearance to others, their is always someone who will love you for who you are. Keep looking and eventually you'll find your big red head or your skinny Asian.
