Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
Smart, warm, uplifting, the story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes the only way to survive is to open her heart

Meet Eleanor Oliphant: she struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. That, combined with her unusual appearance (scarred cheek, tendency to wear the same clothes year in, year out), means that Eleanor has become a creature of habit (to say the least) and a bit of a loner. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.

But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kind of friends who rescue each other from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is the story of a quirky yet lonely woman whose social misunderstandings and deeply ingrained routines could be changed forever—if she can bear to confront the secrets she has avoided all her life. But if she does, she’ll learn that she, too, is capable of finding friendship—and even love—after all.

    I liked it. Didn't love it. Eleanor has spent more than 20 years living her life a certain way. Yes, we can change but ... it all just seemed a bit too easy peasy. Bump into someone at work and then meet another person and suddenly, after years of living basically like a hermit, you ar...

    "These days, loneliness is the new cancer–a shameful, embarrassing thing, brought upon yourself in some obscure way. A fearful, incurable thing, so horrifying that you dare not mention it; other people don't want to hear the word spoken aloud for fear that they might too be afflic...

    I loved this book, I wanted to hug it. I wanted to hug Eleanor (not sure she'd like it though). One of the themes this year seems to be the damage done by a psychopath/psychotic mother on her daughter. I listened to Good Me, Bad Me recently, and although the genre is very different, th...

    Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine, in fact, I think she is my new best friend. I can't remember the last time I encountered a character this real. She is fastidious, prickly, judgmental and antisocial, with no social skills or empathy. But then you get to know her story and understan...
