Eleanor Oliphant is a woman who lives by rigorous schedule: work, frozen pizza and vodka on the weekends, and calls from Mummy on Wednesdays. She is deeply lonely, though she does not realize it — she is a person of solitude, introversion to an extreme degree. This is the kind of novel I needed ri...

I thought there was a chance I might dislike Eleanor because some have compared this book to A Man Called Ove, and I didn't like the main character in that.

I needed this novel, I really did. I needed Eleanor. The booze. The musician. Raymond. Sam. The house plant. The shopkeeper. The cat. I needed them all. I loved Eleanor and her voice for she was witty, sarcastic, and real. She did not hold anything back and she said exactly what she felt and needed....

Eleanor Oliphant is what society would deem "weird" - she is socially inept and tends to say exactly what she is thinking. She has a scarred cheek and wears the same practical clothes year after year. She is a creature of habit. She eats pizza and drinks vodka on the weekends. She has no friends. Sh...
