When Eleanor meets Park, you'll remember your own first love-and just how hard it pulled you under. A New York Times Best Seller!A 2014 Michael L.

Wow, I loved this book! I had been wanting to read it for years, and it totally lived up to my expectations. The characters are amazing and the story made me weep. Loved it!

Saknicole This is my favorite Rainbow Rowel book! I recommend Carry On, if you are interested in the story of Baz and Simon haha 1w
Erin.Elizabeth10 @Saknicole oh thank you! I will check out Carry On! 1w

This story gave me all the nostalgic first love feelings! My heart physically ached during parts - a sign of great character development in my opinion! I will forever love Eleanor, Park, and their love. I‘ve heard that a lot of people disliked the ending, but personally, I appreciated it. Open-ended. Hopeful.

Mommat Sounds like a good plan experience! I like books that offer that. 2w

This book brought me back to high school.
Two very different teens meet and build their relationship on their shared loved for music and comics. I wasn't expecting to care about the characters. And I loved the pop culture references of the 80s music. I found the story to be adorable and heartbreaking.

3⭐️. I can see why teens would enjoy it. Not for me though.

Clwojick ♥️ this one was good, but a little heartbreaking. 2mo
Cortg I loved the 80's references. My daughter read it in middle school. I told her to ask me if she had any questions, her only question was “Who is Peter Gabriel and what songs does he sing?“ I had to introduce her to Say Anything. 2mo
Samplergal @Cortg 😂😂😂. I liked the eighties references as well, although I was raising a kid and working full time then. So...some of those flew by me in my fatigue. 😂 2mo

3/5 Stars
The beginning and middle were captivating. Such a beautiful book about love and a lot of cute moments and quotes. One knows how it ends so the whole time reading...howww does it get there? However, the ending seemed abrupt. After all the build up, THAT is how it ends? It barely seemed like a resolution and just not well thought out. I expected more for the end. Aside from that, 👍🏼.

violabrain Agreed on the end.

4/5 stars. I enjoyed this book a lot. I loved the 80‘s setting and the plus-sized representation. I went into this book thinking it was going to be a great quirky love story, and ended up being a lot heavier than expected. Warning that there is some spousal abuse, verbal abuse and school bullying and it might be difficult to read for some people. It was also not the ending i expected or wanted.

@cjbooklover and I will have to agree to disagree on this one! I thought this was a nice story about two teens and how their relationship develops. I laughed aloud several times and thought the ending was hopeful, if not exactly what I‘d hoped for. Google misled me. Neither teen was a musician, but they did make cassette tapes of music mixes for each other, so we‘re counting it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

A book that features a musician - #Booked2019

This ending made me mad. So mad that I deleted the book as soon as I could because it was defiling my kindle. The best part about this book is that it captures the awkwardness of teen romance. I did not appreciate the ending or more intimate scenes. I am also dissatisfied with how we never found out if her family was okay. Also her stepdad was abusive and a total jerk. The ending was just anticlimactic for me. #unpopularopinion

I really should have gone to sleep last night but I found myself swept up in the story of two misfits who find one of the more realistic depictions of young love that I‘ve ever experienced.

Eleanor is the oldest daughter to a mom who chooses a craptacular man over the kids.

Park struggles to figure out who he is when he can‘t live up to his fathers hypermasculine identity.

They fall in love slowly and honestly.

The hype was earned.
