Eleanor and Park

Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell

Author: Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 4.5 stars


Rainbow Rowell is fast becoming a favorite writer of mine. I loved this love story. Two teenagers who don't quite fit in falling in love over music and X- Men comics? Sign me up. I loved reading this. All the angst and intensity of first love captured perfectly on paper. 


Eleanor and Park were both quirky which made them relatable. Their conversations about comics made me laugh, in fact Eleanor's take on Cyclops I share. Eleanor's unfortunate home situation provided palpable tension. I was routing for them all the way. 


About 100 pages in I couldn't put it down so I didn't even bother. 


Highly recommend.
