Falling in love? It’s normal. Specially for teenagers like me. Yes. It all take consequences. Even if it’s against all odds. But, isn’t it fun to fell in love? Just like Eleanor and Park, others say that they are too young to fall. But, they are just proofs that anyone can fall in love.
In this book, it really gave me a clear understanding about love. That is, when you love you don’t have to find a person with perfect features. All you have is to do is to love them with all your heart. Even if they have some negative side. Well, we all have bad or negative side. Even I.
And, with all honesty, I can say that I can relate to his book. Why? Because anyone can relate. Teenagers, and even all the young at heart. Who missed the feeling of being in love, in their first love.
I love the flow of the story it’s so fast. The good thing is that, I can follow. And, I love the idea that Rainbow Rowell makes Eleanor a fully different character. What I mean is, in other stories, all the girls with the lead role is described as beautiful, slender, has fair skin, long-straight hair. I just think that’s so cliche. Right? And Park. I also love Park’s character here. They’re just so inlove. And even though Eleanor left in the end, for me it’s okay. Because I believe in the saying that, a person may leave you, but, he/she remains in your mind, and in your heart, as well.
And I hope that if there will be a sequel of this book, I hope that they will be together. Forever. Until their last breath.
All in all, I love the story. That’s it.
Every day is such a great story. Even if, at first it confuses me. So much. Admit it or not, there is really point in the story where you’ll feel like you’re left hanging in the air, as well as your thoughts. Still, it’s a great story. Love and life story. Love vs. Life to be specific. Love vs. Life simply because A wants to live the rest of his life with Rhiannon. But he can’t because he’s not normal.
I love the idea of A being in a different body everyday, he’ll stay like this for the rest of his life. Like, it’s so exciting. Right? and I praise him because, even if he lives and interact with other person every other day, he stays in love with the same girl everyday. I don’t know. It’s just so romantic, for me.
Also, one good thing about this, it has consistency. I mean, even if the story did not end the way I expected it to end. I expected that A will live normally and love Rhiannon,for the rest of his life. Okay. the story did not end that way. Yet, I loved the ending. A just prove here that, love takes it’s consequences. It needs sacrifice. Right? because, I’ve heard so much about this saying before.: ”Love is Sacrifice.” just like what A did. He sacrificed for the good of Rhiannon. For the good of them, both.
The part I really loved was A’s last encounter with Rhiannon, where he decided to do what the right thing is. He decided to leave Rhiannon to a guy he could trust. A guy who he wants himself to be. Because, he’s pretty sure that this guy will love her, the way he did. Forever. Maybe.
All in all, the one who deserves all the praise here is none other than the author, David Levithan. Simply because, he had this job well done. He really is a great author.
Passing high school is not that easy for me. In my life as a student, I love doing things in rush hours. Note-taking, reading, writing, concentrating, time management. I’ve all done that. These are just simple, yet, helpful ways to pass high school. And, as a student, I admit this really helped me to pass high school. I ask, I participate, I write, I read, I think, I study, I studied really hard. Of course, I know that in the end, this would help me in the future.
And, after all, I have to accept the fact that, hardships and difficulties will always be there. Some of the things that made it hard for me to focus in my studies are: Hard lessons, terror teachers, peer pressure, and also my own negative thoughts. Even though I’ve face all these difficulties, I’m proud of myself. Because, I’ve overcome this obstacle. And, this is a part of study life. Admit it, or, not. But still, I gave my 100%. In myself, I know that. I know that I gave my all. I have to have good grades. So that, I’ll be able to study in my mostly desired university.
After graduating high school, I know that, this isn’t the end. This is the beginning. Beginning of the journey I’ve always wanted to overcome to. After passing high school, of course I have to pass college, too. By, of course doing the same study skills.
Because, once you’ve started it, you have to finish it. That’s a rule, for me. I have to pass college.
That’s it. It’s that important.
