“Holding Eleanor's hand was like holding a butterfly. Or a heartbeat. Like holding something complete, and completely alive.”
Can you all believe I had never read this book until now? Yeah, neither can I. Because that is CRAZY! To be fair, I put it off a lot. In a weird way that doesn't make sense, I didn't want to ruin Fangirl. And this book didn't, I still love Fangirl, I just have a different kind of love for Eleanor and Park.
This book is about two outcast teens who become friends when they are forced to sit next to each other on the bus to and from school. At first, they don't really understand each other, but as time goes by, they want to get to know each other and develop an amazing friendship, and then romance.
“What are the chances you’d ever meet someone like that? he wondered. Someone you could love forever, someone who would forever love you back? And what did you do when that person was born half a world away? The math seemed impossible.”
This is going to be a shorter review because I think everyone has already said all the things about this book. But MY HEART. This book made me wish that men like Park existed in real life, because no man could measure up to this guy. And Eleanor, I bled for that girl. I just wanted to hug her and tell her she was beautiful and that someone cared.
Anyways, if you are stupid like me and haven't read this book, you need to correct this giant mistake asap. You won't regret this one!
“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 you."
He closed his eyes and pressed his head back into his pillow.
"I don't think I even breathe when we're not together," she whispered. "Which means, when I see you on Monday morning, it's been like sixty hours since I've taken a breath. That's probably why I'm so crabby, and why I snap at you. All I do when we're apart is think about you, and all I do when we're together is panic. Because every second feels so important. And because I'm so out of control, I can't help myself. I'm not even mine anymore, I'm yours, and what if you decide that you don't want me? How could you want me like I want you?"
He was quiet. 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.”
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+.
