Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive – but not how to live

Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend.

Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything.
One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world that everyone else seems to take for granted – while searching for the courage to face the dark corners she’s avoided all her life.
Change can be good. Change can be bad. But surely any change is better than… fine?

Hey! Here's my review.


Eleanor Oliphant is quirky heroine who stayed with me long after I finished reading her story. She discovers that "completely fine" might not be fine after all. I connected with this book in a similar way as I did to The Rosie Project - The main character had me intrigued and I had to keep turning the pages to see what would happen next. An engaging, character-driven story of adult self-discovery.
