Patron Book Reviews

Eleanor and Park is a unique romance novel in that their lifestyles are so different from each other. Some might say that this is the case in most romance novels, but to that, I remind them of Romeo and Juliet, among other books in which lovers share a somewhat common story. Park is this goth-like misfit, and Eleanor doesn't know where her next meal wil come from, much less how to go about avoiding her abusive "step-father." The beauty of Rowell's Eleanor and Park is that it shows that good (love, in this instance) can come from all situations, and all we have to do is let it. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I recommend it to anyone who seeks to understand the meaning of developing relationships.  Library's SWAN Online Catalog
