THE ABDUCTOR: Eleanor! I’m feeling horrible right now because I can’t remember Eleanor’s last name and I couldn’t find it on Goodreads and I only have 45 minutes to try to get this post up so I don’t have time to hunt for it, but yes! Eleanor completely abducted me in this story! I could relate to her in so many ways that it was scary!
TIME IN CAPTIVITY: Sometimes the hardest reviews to write are for the books you love the most! And my love for Eleanor & Park knows no bounds so this review is almost painful to write!
So here is what you need to know…
The story is about two teenagers who meet in high school and fall in love. Eleanor is trying to deal with some troubles at home and because of this she is struggling with stress and fear but also some insecurities. She meets Park and together they form a friendship and a relationship that is real and honest.
Rainbow Rowell is an amazing author who created compelling and genuine characters and featured them in a story that, as Booklist said, was “breathtaking and, of course, heartbreaking, too.”
PICK UP LINE:
He made her feel like more than the sum of her parts.
POINT OF ABDUCTION: For me the point of abduction was the moment on the bus when Park realized that Eleanor was reading his comics over his shoulder. I loved how innocent their relationship started. I loved how the first few gestures of friendship were as small as him waiting a beat longer before turning the page so that she would have time to finish reading the page as well.
I'm giving this book a double rating of 5 making it a total 10 because I loved it that much! I can't wait to read it again!
