Ahh yes. The world of contemporary reads, in which I enjoy to indulge myself in when in the summer or spring.
Unfortunately, I broke that rule.
So alas! My review of Eleanor and Park!
BUT THE COVER THOUGH
Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits-smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love-and just how hard it pulled you under.
Eleanor and Park was genuinely not a bad contemporary read. Some authors really try to pull off romance and we get crummy-teenage love smut. Rainbow Rowell gives the vibe of how much teens go through, not only in their love life, but personally, and how that affects our behavior around our loved ones. I honestly loved this story and it was amazingly written. The way that it is written, centered around Park and Eleanor’s perspectives gives an insight of how they each react and act vice-versa.
And when you find out there is no Eleanor and Park reunion,:
There is some explicit (well, alot) language indicated in the story. Like, I mean, literally a lot. There may also be some very, very explicit language and it may or may not be potentially triggering.
Overall Rating: 4.3/5 stars
