One extraordinary love.
Eleanor... Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor.
Park... He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park.
Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.
Let me start of by saying that I really enjoyed this book but i was expecting a little bit more from it, don’t get me wrong this was literally one of the cutest books I’ve read in a while. A very emotional read. This book made me smile, this book made me angry, frustrated, it made me feel giddy and warm and it also crushed my heart. That is probably the thing I like the most about this book, the fact that it made me feel all this different types of emotions.
I loved Rainbow Rowell’s writing style. Her stories are fantastic and her characters are so well written. I feel like this book felt very believable to me. While I was reading I sometimes forgot that these where fictional characters. I liked Eleanor, she was different and refreshing and I do have to say that at times she frustrated me a little but it’s a part of her story and her personality. I’m not crazy about Park but he was interesting. I like the romantic aspect of the story its a very interesting and sort of different story than the ones we are used to but it made me feel all warm and tingly.
The ending of the story. God! That Ending! I liked the idea but in truth there are things that I would have liked to know so it felt a little like it was all left hanging there. Rainbow Rowell should really consider writing like a novella or something about what happens next.
Very simple yet very beautiful book
