Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Teens, 2014

Bono met his wife in high school, Park says.

So did Jerry Lee Lewis, Eleanor answers.

I’m not kidding, he says.

You should be, she says, we’re 16.

What about Romeo and Juliet?

Shallow, confused, then dead.

I love you, Park says.

Wherefore art thou, Eleanor answers.

I’m not kidding, he says.

You should be.

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.

    Story
    "Don't believe the hype"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The book was decent. It was not as good as a john green book. Eleanor is whiny and difficult. Park made the romance worthwhile


    Would you recommend Eleanor & Park to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. This book was not worthwhile. There were some cute parts, but it was like a movie that's not worth seeing in theaters. If you have the book already, read it. Otherwise, keep shopping


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

    no


    Do you think Eleanor & Park needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    absolutely not......unless its about park


    Any additional comments?

    this book is average at best. I would've reread the fault in our stars if I knew this book was just ok

    "adorable, raw, well done"
    Where does Eleanor & Park rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Best thus far!


    What does Rebecca Lowman and Sunil Malhotra bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Their voices really bring out the emotion of each personality. I loved when each narrator would mimic Park's mother. Had me chuckle on numerous occasions.

    "Amazing characters & a good story"

    Eleanor and Park are more than just characters you read about. They are people that you get to know, and if you're like me you start to feel like you are them.
    There is so much heart in Park that he's almost a caricature of a high schooler in love, but he has so much more to him than a typical love interest. He's got depth and style. I loved reading about him and his struggles to love Eleanor and himself.
    Eleanor is not your typical female love interest. She's got a bad attitude, but it's understandable given her dreadful family life. She learns to accept the love Park practically throws at her, and she's not afraid to make fun of him for it.
    There's so much to these characters, and the story is simple and easy to read (listen to).

    Why, why can't there be more?!?! I hung on every word and stayed up way too late to finish.

    "One of my favourite audiobooks ever"

    The book is so wonderful that it could only be improved upon by the reading. Two of my favourite narrators since I first heard Elenor and Park. I originally got this from the library but had to buy it to listen again. And probably again and again.

    "Not another love story"

    Loved the turn of events, right when you think you know what's gonna happen next, the unexpected happens.

    "Narrators are amazing."

    This is a good book for really young adults with family problems. This book is not that sad.

    "Wow wow wow!"

    The best most real fiction audiobook I've listened to. I can't get over it, the way Park couldn't get over Eleanor.

    "Sweet story."

    A little heavy on the Romantic descriptions here and there but overall a nice romantic story. It will especially appeal to those of us who grew up in the mid 80s music and comic book scene.
