Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
By Gail Honeyman
Not My Edition:
Paperback, 325 pages
Eleanor struggles with what many would consider normal social interactions – she says exactly what she’s thinking and as a result, tends not to have any friends. But she doesn’t need any friends. She has a job, she has her weekend habits involving pizza and vodka, and regular phone calls with her mother. When she meets Raymond, the IT guy at the office, however, she slowly begins to see just how much she’s missing out on.
I read this because Mum recommended it (actually, she told me I had to read it) and then almost immediately let me borrow her copy. I decided to give her a break and read it right away. I’m glad I did!
