Sarah Says: Eleanor and Park – A Review

Sarah Says: Eleanor and Park – A Review:



Since finishing this book I’ve been experiencing an empty feeling, I wanted more, I wanted the book to go on forever or at least have a sequel. It was such an incredible book that I didn’t want it to end.

Park was my favourite character in this. I feel he put up with so much when it came to Eleanor, he was patient for the most part and did try to be understanding. It was nice to get the story from his point of view as well as Eleanor’s as if it was just from her point of view I’d be dying to know what Park thought of the strange red headed girl!

Every now and then I got annoyed with Eleanor. Her overreactions really drove me mad, I wanted to shout at her, tell her to just accept that Park liked her and that she was being ridiculous but then I saw myself in her insecurities so I let her be. 

Of course she had been through so much crap in her life so that explains the way she was but I couldn’t help but wish she just accepted how much Park loved her and enjoyed it whilst she could instead of worrying.

From reading the first few lines of the book it’s obvious it doesn’t have the happy ending I wanted it to have but I admit it ended so much better than I thought, there was a glimmer of hope that they’d one day be together again.

I’d love for there to be a sequel! I want to know what happened to Eleanor’s Mum, sister and brothers and I guess even Richie though I hate him. I want to know if Eleanor and Park ever meet again, I hope they do, in my mind they do.

I definitely recommend this book but make sure you start it when you have a lot of free time as once I started this book I couldn’t put it down until I was done with it! It’s absolutely amazing.

“I just meant that… I want to be the last person who ever kisses you, too…. That sounds bad, like a death threat or something. What I’m trying to say is, you’re it. This is it for me.” 

Attention: Sequel. Sequel. SEQUEL.



Thank you.
