This was recommended by my FB book club and since joining have explored lots of new genres I wouldn’t have read this before but I am so very glad I did I loved the story and as for Eleanor OMG I totally fell in love with her character and quirkiness I was sad to finish it and would definitely recommend this book to everyone I know
The book was unlike anything I usually read - being a murder mystery fan usually but I saw the reviews and thought why not. I can honestly say It's one of the best books I have ever read. I saw bits of Eleanor in myself and other people I know. It was so easy to read and so hard to out aside to do other things that needed doing. Highlyrecommended
This is a very heartwarming story, highlighting the thoughts and actions of someone who has suffered severe trauma. Through Eleanor 's eyes the reader certainly becomes enlightened and invested in her healing process. A very refreshing and helpful story, without over-dramatising mental health issues. Highlyrecommended reading.
It’s really quite hard to sum this book up! I picked this up because the reviews were so good and now I can see why. The story is heart felt and writing skill of this author is really quite exceptional. Eleanor Oliphant is funny, relatable, sad and moving and shines a light on the reality of many people worldwide - loneliness. I hope this book opens the heart of other readers a little more, like it has mine and helps us to lean in to empathy and kindness. I highlyrecommend this book.
Eleanor, despite her unusual personality is a kind an brave soul craving human connection and I was really rooting for her to succeed. All the characters are beautifully drawn, warm, engaging and truly good people. An uplifting story despite Eleanor’s tragic past. Highlyrecommended.
I found this novel compelling and beautifully written and recommend it very highly. It is a long time since I have read a book that I ‘couldn’t put down’ but it was definitely the case with this one. The main character was damaged, vulnerable but totally believable. I enjoyed sharing her journey towards self-awareness.
I loved listening to this book. Eleanor is such a lovely quirky character who I really enjoyed getting to know. Her story unfolds with many twists and turns that kept me totally engaged. The caring characters she comes into contact with were heartwarming. Highlyrecommended.
Just loved the story of Eleanor Oliphant, ......had a bit of a twist at the end... This is a book that I didn't want to end, keep thinking about it quite frequently and will re read again....Highlyrecommend.
An unusual story but totally intriguing - the main character lures you in with her old fashioned traits, her somewhat asinine and frank wit. Charming and sad at the same time - highly enjoyable book. Highlyrecommended.
