I've read this book more than once and it is still just as good, if not better every time. One of my five-star reads for sure.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #marvellousmay @Andrew65
I really enjoyed this book and rooted for Eleanor and Park the entire time. I did not have the same scenarios that either of the characters did, but I had some things about my family that were different enough to be picked on, so I felt the connection to the story. I even listened to the songs mentioned while I was reading!

“I don‘t like you….. I think I live for you.”

Uhh Rainbow, we need to talk! Please write a sequel! Give the people what they want, what they need!! I adored this story! Poetic, emotional, engaging! I want to reread Fangirl now because I forgot what an exceptional writer Rainbow Rowell is. Also, is this a movie? It totally should be!

“Eleanor was right. She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn't supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something.”

I‘m loving this sweet love story! And all the 80s references!

“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. “

Somewhere between a pick and a so-so for me. The story was excellent, a perfect mix between heart-breaking and romantic. Like others wrote, some of the writing was uncomfortable and unnecessary (in my opinion). Also, some parts of the book felt rushed while others dragged out. Still finished in less than a day though, couldn‘t wait to find out what happened!

This was maybe slightly better than ‘so-so‘ but not super great. It‘s a teenage love story and the love described between Park & Eleanor is just that: weirdly fast moving & at times cringely intense. And then there‘s the way Eleanor is made to describe Park—she never lets us forget he‘s half Korean. It was a bit uncomfortable.

Overall, it was ok. Some parts were good.

I‘ve read this before, but after it was mentioned in “The Overdue Life of Amy Byler,” I wanted to read it again. At times, very painful to read but I still loved it. I love Rainbow Rowell‘s books. I‘m thinking it‘s time to reread them!

The beginning took me a little while to get into, but overall, I enjoyed the story of Eleanor and Park. First love, acceptance of who you are, and leaving a bad home life wrapped in music and comic books. This will definitely be a read I am adding to my classroom library.

Finished this reread for book group tomorrow night; 8 years since I‘d first read this. It did not age well. And while Eleanor‘s story still reads as tragic as ever, my discomfort comes more with being more aware of Park‘s character. It feels like a case of #fakediversity where he is half Korean just to be an other, a matched misfit to E‘s redhead with a terrible family situation. I‘m still processing. I loved this the first time. Now...

LibrarianRyan Ahhh. Former staff member spent years telling everyone hoe glorious 100 years of solitude was. The book club she hosted at the library decided to read it, so she did a reread. 20 years later and a different perspective, she couldn‘t understand what she used to see in it. 2y

Cute YA novel, but ultimately I felt it just wasn‘t my favorite and probably not something I would‘ve picked up and read if my friend had not recommended it. This book does bring up touchy subjects like abuse, so I didn‘t love that. Eleanor and Park‘s relationship was very cute and wholesome. I would say that made up for a lot of this book.

⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 stars

I needed this book. Although it has a definite sad undertone, Eleanor and Park offer such a happy, love filled hope. They remind me of all the best parts of my first love. Rainbow Rowell does not disappoint. Highly suggest for anyone. I found myself relieved and happy at the end. Trigger warning for abused children though.

I saw some article somewhere suggesting we should only read for comfort in 2021. While I‘m sure I won‘t stick to only comfort, gonna start a good comfort read. I did this book on audio back in probably 2018 and these characters have not left me. Revisiting (also reading to see if i feel it‘s appropriate to share with my nearly 12 year old who has decided she will only read YA now)

I admit that I didn‘t read much of this book. Richie was hitting my triggers, and I didn‘t think I could handle it. Plus, I really was looking for a lighthearted and fun read, not something heavy and painful. Maybe another time. #AuthorAMonth @Soubhiville

Riveted_Reader_Melissa This one was harder... maybe try Fangirl next time, it‘s more if a cozy comfy read. Some parent with mental health issues, but no abuse plot. (edited) 2y

I loved this one...all the 80‘s feels of my teen years and with such adolescent sweetness of first love rolled into the angst and issues of rough real life those growing years entail, I‘m amazed at how well she managed to write a story that encapsulated both at the same time, perfectly balanced. So glad I finally picked this one off my to-read pile, both Eleanor & Park will stay with me for a long time.

A cute romance read, which makes me feel all nostalgic- young love, first kiss, and my teenage years in the 80s. I‘m surprised I enjoyed it, even at my age. 😁 But there‘s also a darker side of the story which is heartbreaking. I want to hug Eleanor. And eat tatter tot casserole.

This book lived up to the hype. A really cute love story between Eleanor and Park, two high school students in Omaha, Nebraska, this book also delves into issues like body image, domestic abuse, emotional trauma, perception of Asians, and masculinity, all with a dose of 1980s nostalgia. #AuthorAMonth

TheBookAddict It‘s definitely one of my favorites. A great book. 🙂👍🏽 2y
