Eleanor is 16 and has more maturity than I will ever have!
This wasn't what i expected it to be.
What i expected was a typical high school romance but this, this was something more. Something that you wouldn't forget that easily. ( )
  Vibha_V | Feb 18, 2021 |
I picked up my copy of this book before I knew about the problematic rep. Even after the problematic rep was revealed to me, I figured it would be okay, but I probably wouldn’t keep it after reading due to the rep. … I was just as surprised as anyone to find that even discounting the racist choices made… I didn’t like this book? From a pure writing and storytelling standard, Eleanor & Park is deeply overrated.

Some good points first:

- It’s easy to read
- I appreciated there were points where the characters connected beyond wanting to eat each other’s faces.
- It felt representative of a super awkward high school relationship.

Beyond that, there are some definite issues. The biggest of these was the intense feeling of an author writing outside of her lane. In Park’s POV, you have her writing as a first generation Korean-American. I will concede that it’s possible Eleanor’s POV comes a bit more from personal experience (potentially), but it’s all very… uncomfortable. And not in that “I’m a bad person and need to do better” kind of way. More like the “why were these choices made” kind of way.

The language used in Eleanor & Park doesn’t help. This is historical fiction set in the 1980s. There’s this thing in historical fiction where authors get to made a choice. Do they go for “as accurate as possible” and use offensive language? Or do they clean up the dialogue? I think generally speaking if you aren’t part of the race that was experiencing the derogatory terms, you don’t get to use them. Rainbow Rowell – you do not get to use them. There’s all sorts of offensive words used in the dialogue of this book: racist, sexist, ableist. Another reader may argue “that’s how people talked in the 80s!”. Well, good thing it’s not the 80s then. In a story that’s primarily a romance and doesn’t really address issues (certainly not well) – these were wholly unnecessary.

Outside of Eleanor and Park – really, I guess, outside of Eleanor – the characters were flat as pancakes. Eleanor has two Black friends and I really felt the Black sidekick stereotypes with both Beebi and DeNice. Park’s mom was super, super cringe. Other characters were less downright offensive – but people like Tina and and Cal didn’t stand out at all. There was actually one point where Cal was talking to Park and I had to refresh my memory as to who he was.

The writing and storytelling were decidedly mediocre. I feel like I’ve read this story before, only I’ve read better versions of it. Funnier versions, sadder versions. I can appreciate the ending but as a rule I was a bit bored. This was a love story, but it wasn’t a rollercoaster ride of a love story. Instead of being worried about the relationship, I was mostly wondering how many pages were left.

I was concerned about Eleanor’s home life and the way Park’s father kept emasculating him (but then was still left to look like the good guy in that family?), but I felt these points were glazed a bit, too. There was too much dialogue, and Rowell’s particularly writing style didn’t give these points too much depth even when there was a lot of potential to be something interesting and heartbreaking there. On one hand, I guess it was a good thing that she didn’t go too deep, because Rowell was not the person to write these struggles and address them… but I found myself disappointed that they were presented and Very Real and Concerning and were sort of… just… there.

This is my second book by Rainbow Rowell and y’all – I don’t see the hype, I really don’t. I have a copy of Fangirl still so I’m not completely writing her off yet, but I’m also not convinced of her brilliance. Eleanor & Park was mediocre. It did not have enough redeeming qualities to cancel out the bad. ( )

absolutely hated the racial stereotyping of Park, ruined the entire story for me even though it the story had some redeeming qualities ( )
  wendy.reads | Jan 26, 2021 |
I thought Fangirl was amazing. However, Fangirl isn't even in the same league as Eleanor and Park. E&P is the kind of book I want to give a copy of to everyone I know, along with a mix CD of all my favorite 80's music. E&P is a piece of much-needed therapy for anyone who has survived an abusive situation. I crushed so hard on this book and my new OTP that as soon as I was done, my book hangover was severe enough I immediately started to re-read it because nothing else could possibly compare. Nothing. How did this happen?

I'm not a huge YA fan though most of the few YA books I've read have been enjoyable. I don't have anything against YA, but I do feel it tends towards the same plot lines over and over again and is heavy on the romance. Yes, Eleanor and Park is about teenage love. No, that's not even close to what it's all about, though. Eleanor isn't your typical skinny, blonde girl who has some coming of age teen crisis while trying to juggle a relationship and friends and school and family. Eleanor has the kind of problems that are much more severe, unsafe, and destructive to her person and her self-esteem. Eleanor is also messy-haired, weird, and fat. Eleanor is me, especially when I was a teenager.

I don't just love this book because of Eleanor and her story, though. There's also all the music and comic book conversations between her and Park. I also love how the story is constructed. It's told from both of their perspectives, back and forth, so you don't just get to know one of them through the eyes of the other. Also, I love how Rainbow Rowell includes their parents in the story beyond a casual, in the background sort of way. She's the only YA author I've read that does so. There are so many other reasons why I love Eleanor and Park. Just read the book, ok?! ( )

So changed my rating based on lots of information from authors and thinkers I admire who outlined in detail the multiple racist tropes throughout this book. In my ignorance, I didn't see any of them and that's heartbreaking.

Naomi Giddings had an excellent thread with multiple articles and research around the details of this if you're interested. ( )

I have never seen anything quite like “Eleanor & Park.” Rainbow Rowell’s first novel for young adults is a beautiful, haunting love story — but I have seen those. It’s set in 1986, and God knows I’ve seen that. There’s bullying, sibling rivalry, salvation through music and comics, a monstrous stepparent — and I know, we’ve seen all this stuff. But you’ve never seen “Eleanor & Park.” Its observational precision and richness make for very special reading.

He loved how much they loved each other. It was the thing he thought about when he woke up scared in the middle of the night. Not that they loved him -- they were his parents, they had to love him. That they loved each other. They didn't have to do that.
