No one’s ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine.

Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. 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 kinds of friends who rescue one another 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.

Smart, warm, uplifting, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is 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 your heart.

After being out of commission for more than a week due to my back, I am glad to finally get to post some reviews. Today is the first day since the 14th that I have been able to sit in a chair and what a relief it is! The upside of not being able to do much is that I got 5 books finished, so I guess ...

3.5 Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine -- she really actually is gonna be just fine
I liked this because I could relate to a lot of parts, but I don't think my star rating should count as a recommendation for just anyone. It's pretty much like a "beach read" - an easy book where everything is obvious, but it got to my heart. I saw every single plot point coming from a mile away, an...

5.0 A character you won't soon forget
There is a reason that this debut novel has been on hold for many, many months and why it continues to be difficult to get in a hurry. Gail Honeyman has managed to create a character so unique and delightful that I found myself instantly enamored of her. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is the st...

Well I thought about it and just decided to give this one 3 stars. I honestly felt the need to go back and re-read "The Rosie Project" again after finishing this. Parts of it were pretty amusing, however, the main character Eleanor is written pretty inconsistently. And I just had a hard time with he...

3.5 Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
Eleanor Oliphant thinks she is completely fine, only she is not. This book explores why Eleanor is this way and how she grows as a person. This is a nicely written book with a decent plot and character development. The book reminds me of Michelle Magorian's Good Night Mr. Tom.
