Eleanor & Park (Book Review-Plot)
Eleanor and park book review:
I was so freshened up, mainly bc, for the last months.. I’ve been reading dystopian genre books(Ignite me- Tahereh Mafi, Allegiant - Veronica Roth and Maze Runner)
No war, no mystery or what. Just plain first love. And yeah, I could say I liked it but notmuch. But if were talking about the front to Chapter 57 I really loved it!
[context clues pls!]
PLOT : (sorry if I inserted some comments down below. ^_^V)
On the first few chaps, both main characs were introduced. Eleanor as the Big red girl who wears so odd. (i meant by odd as boyish with no particular style) she’s a heart toucher when it comes to literature. Park, is the black(bc he wears too much black), asian kid whom I considered as a very well looking man. It started out on the bus, when Eleanor’s the new girl and has nowhere to sit. You could tell by the looks of the people in the bus that no one’s willling to share a seat with her until she was called by the driver to sit down and Park just commanded with a cuss ‘Sit down’.
I started adoring Park by then, how he’s so gentleman(he was reading comics one day on the bus when his eyes caught that eleanor was also reading it, and so he slanted and slowed down on turning the pages for her), stuttering (when he thinks of a praise to say to eleanor after doing great on english.), decent(his family got potpourri everywhere. His mom is an Avon girl. He and his younger brother do Taewondo with their dad) and blabla.
So many things I can’t fathom into words. So eventually, they got together which at first made me so happy.. (I’d tell you later on why not so lasting.)
The little things they do, hold hands is just soo :’> The meet the parents of Park. How eleanor just stay at their house. Ahii :) but the sick part is… Eleanor doesn’t have the effin’ guts to stand for Park. Park could tho! Park kicked Steve’s face one morning when it teased eleanor big fat red. She couldn’t even tell her mom that she’s going to Park’s house.
She, instead told that she’ll be going to Tina’s who really isn’t even her friend and is one who bullies her. So it continued like that. And then i just hated Eleanor for Park. -_-
there are other reasons ofc.
…chaps flew by Rowell’s detailing their mismatched life.
One night, everything was just so perf.(E and P even made it to 2nd base at the back of Park’s car-_- whch really made me think if we Asians’re really not that liberated or maybe definitely noobs as 16yr olds bc we don’t effin make out on that age!)
then when Eleanor got home, she heard the usual shouts of his stepdad(just read the novel bc i won’t detail it here) she thought everything’s the usual when she came to her top bunk and found her box full of Park opened and vandalized. There she knew that his step dad already knew and so she went off again and went sobbing to Park. And bc park’s the perf guy, he drove her to his uncle’s. The drive was really romantic and emotional if it’s not me reading it. I hated them as couple right? So yea, the good byes… Promises.
And when park went home, he wrote letter almost everyday to her. But IDEK WHAT THE eych is Eleanor’s problem that she doesn’t even make up a single letter back. Yes, she did. But to her mom. So park continued like, for months.. -_- then he just stopped. I loved that moment tho. I’m like yey! Park would be mine. But the course just went off. And park
Went gothic. Thick eyeliner. Just.. Wrecked. Huhu. A year had passed. Park accidentally met Richie, E’s stepdad. He never thought he could be so angry at a person. It was drunk and tripped in front of him. He kicked snow and gravel onto his mouth and went off. It was prom(E promised P she would go with him) and I’m starting to regret not loving them here. If i just knew they wouldn’t get together at the end, i should’ve shipped them!
So Park went with somebody. . And just slept with his tux on that night. So it ended this way.
Park woke up with the tapping his father made. Mail call. A postcard ‘greeting from the land of 10,000lakes’ was sent. With HER scratchy handwritting. Just three words long.
