#1 New York Times Best Seller!
"Eleanor & Park reminded me not just what it's like to be young and in love with a girl, but also what it's like to be young and in love with a book."-John Green, The New York Times Book Review
Bono met his wife in high school, Park says.
So did Jerry Lee Lewis, Eleanor answers.
I'm not kidding, he says.
You should be, she says, we're 16.
What about Romeo and Juliet?
Shallow, confused, then dead.
I love you, Park says.
Wherefore art thou, Eleanor answers.
I'm not kidding, he says.
You should be.
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.

Al momento, si è verificato un problema durante il filtraggio delle recensioni. Riprova più tardi.
In effetti, anche se la storia è decisamente "giovanilistica" (sopratutto per me che sono sulla soglia dei 50) e parecchio "sdolcinata", nel complesso l'ho trovato molto ben scritto (ho letto la versione in inglese), piacevole e coinvolgente.
Sicuramente una buona (e formativa) lettura per i teenagers, ma anche un modo per tornare indietro nel tempo per chi teenager non lo è più :-)
Il romanzo è molto scorrevole, la storia ti prende dall'inizio e i personaggi che la Rowell mette in campo sono, come sempre, comuni ma speciali. Mi sono identificata subito con uno di loro e ho divorato questo libro in un paio di giorni. L'inglese è facile e assolutamente comprensibile e il finale imprevisto ma splendido. Grazie Rainbow Rowell per quest'altra tua piccola perla, comprerò di sicuro gli altri suoi libri che mi mancano.
La spedizione di Amazon invece è stata come sempre ottima e veloce. E' un piacere fare acquisti qui!
Anyway, this is not the only point. The sweet love story between Eleonor and Park deserves a 5 stars. All my compliments to the writer, who could define with touching minimal descriptions their friendship and love story. I don't want to spoil the end, but in a fandom I am sure that they are married and together.
For all who want to read something light, but funny and nerdy!

While the book does have a slow-burning cute romance, and a hefty amount of more serious family issues, I really struggled with the fact that for me, the majority of the romance was so unbelievable.
It is a YA novel about a teen romance, so something we have all seen before, but it was somehow very different from the average novel of this genre. Eleanor and Park are both so well written they seem completely real, and it feels like their relationship could and would happen in real life. The way they communiate on their bus journeys was just so touching, and was so authntic as to how teenage romances are in the beginning.
It also meant a lot that the main characters were more diverse than the norm. In YA fiction, I have never come across a female protagonist who was described as fat, unless the story involved her losing weight in order to achieve her happily ever after. This is not the case with Eleanor. She is not thin, and that's just how it is. She still gets the guy, and still deserves to be happy and in love - a mesaage that young girls could do with hearing much more often. Park is also the first Korean leading man that I have read about, and there is a passage in the book that refers to how asian men are often overlooked, so it is good to see a character like this in the limelight, discussing openly what it is like to grow up in a household like his.
There are some painful experiences for the characters in this book, along with some moments of sheer happiness and excitement, and as a reader I felt like I lived through all of these moments with them. Eleanor has a tough life, but she finds an escape with Park, and this means that the book remains hopeful, even through the dark moments.
This is a wonderful YA book, the best I have read in a while.
I'm not sure how I feel about the ending of this book (it is left in a way that you, the reader, decide the ending). I like closure, and this book didn't give it to me. So I'm not sure if I like that. It was, however, a fitting end for the book. I'm just not sure if I'm happy it ended in the way it did, or extremely angry. That's why I've given this book 4/5, because I can't decide.
I'd recommend this book to people who like YA coming of age/romance books, such as The Fault in Our Stars - which is what made me read the book initially, John Greene's recommendation.
Beautiful story. Memorable. Made me laugh and cry a lot, and I'm sure it'll stay with me for a while. I'm just kind of hoping eventually, just maybe, the author will decide to follow up on the ending and let us know how Eleanor and Park are getting on.
