Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
(St. Martin’s Press, 2012, 328 pages)
I listened to the audio version of Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell, the story of young love between two teens from different worlds. Eleanor and Park is read by Rebecca Lowman and Sunil Malhotra. I enjoyed Malhotra’s portrayal of Park and, in raising the pitch of his voice, Park’s Korean mother. Set in 1986 (and the same decade I was in high school), I enjoyed the cultural references to the music and comics of the time. It was a good story, and I looked forward to turning it on in the car each day.
