    Story
    (6)

    A gorgeously crafted memoir about resilience, family, and forging your own way, by a woman born without legs. At the age of three, Eileen Cronin first realized that only she did not have legs. Her boisterous Catholic family accepted her situation as "God's will", treating her no differently than her 10 siblings, as she "squiddled" through their 1960s Cincinnati home. But when starting school, even wearing prosthetics, Cronin had to brave bullying and embarrassing questions.

    Mandy says: "excrutiatingly slow narration."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    i would not.


    What didn’t you like about Eileen Cronin’s performance?

    She reads in an excrutiatingly slow manner, overpronouncing words and dragging sentences on for days.

    Set over the course of one school year, in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits - smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love - and just how hard it pulled you under.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yep. I recommended it to a young friend who is in high school and she loved it.


    What other book might you compare Eleanor & Park to and why?

    Among Others, by Jo Walton.


    Have you listened to any of Rebecca Lowman and Sunil Malhotra ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, both of them. They are both great.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I don't have time for that, but yes I really did want to.
