I’ve been listening so many good things about this book, that at first, I had my reservations, specially after the fiasco with TFIOS and Looking for Alaska, still, I decided to give it a chance. OMG, I totally loved it, and here I must be totally honest with you guys, since I’m not a big fan of fandom, actually I don’t like it at all, I think it’s totally wrong to take someone else’s creation and manipulate it as your wish, I mean, If you want to write, create your own characters. Still I actually enjoyed the fandom from Cather.
The characters were truthfully great, I loved Levi, hated Nick, sometimes hated more Wren and adored Cather’s dad, and wish to be roommate with Reagan.
What I loved about the book was the honesty of the characters, the way they grew on the story, specially Cather.
I could talk all day about this book, and tell you all the details on why I loved it, but I would do something better, I would recommended it to you, and I hope you love it as much as I did.
After reading Fangirl, I immediately went for Eleanor & Park for my next read, and let me tell you this, If I loved Fangirl, I simply adored this one!, such a beautiful book.
I totally enjoyed the combination of shyness, sadness, and honest moments. I loved Park, and I loved Eleanor, and I couldn’t help feel totally sad for her, to worry for her, to wish to help her.
This book really get me in some levels that I wasn’t expecting, specially because if you like me, grew up in a loving family, no matter how crazy or dysfunctional, but loving family, in which you feel the love from your parents, their concern for you and your siblings, like Park’s family, is sad to realize that not all families are like yours, that some kids don’t have all those things that you give for granted, like food, or clothes, simple things like notebooks or a bedroom. The reality that had to live Eleanor, her family situation really hit me, specially because even when it was a book, there are families like her out there.
People shouldn’t be so rush at judging others, since you don’t know their background, you don’t know what they are living in daily basis, it’s totally wrong to judge others just for their appearance. This book is not only an enjoyable read, is a book that certainly is going to touch you in so many ways, a book that you’re going to treasure.
