Review: Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell

This book was so beautifully written. The character development worked so well and I loved the transition from Eleanor' s point of view to Park's.
At the start I felt so sorry for Eleanor, the situation with her stepdad, the fact she couldn't even afford a toothbrush...
It seemed so awkward when she first got on the bus and there was no where to sit and then with everyone calling her names and so on.
The relationship between Eleanor and Park was just gorgeous. How it went from nothing to letting Eleanor read over his shoulder, to Park leaving out the comics and tapes for her, then him letter her borrow his walkman, to holding hands, etc.
What got me was the ending. I wanted something to happen other than a postcard with three words on it. I wanted Eleanor to go to prom with Park, even if they'd just gotten back together or got to see each other again.
Speaking of the postcard, what even were those three words?
'I love you'
'I miss you'
'Nothing ever ends'?
Overall this book was a masterpiece and I adored it. One of the best contemporaries I've ever read, and I look forward to reading more things from Rainbow Rowell in the future.
I recommend this to anyone who fancies a good romance or just a lovely, unique twist on teen romance.
