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
Recommended to me by by a friend I am embarrassed to say I put off reading it as wasn't sure I'd enjoy it, well I absolutely loved it! I have recommended it to so many people. This the first book I've reviewed where I've been positive and happy to say it's a great read. A little quirky and a little sad, at times I laughed out loud. I thoroughlyenjoyed this book and was sad to finish as would have loved to read more about Eleanor. I can understand why it will be turned into a movie.
I thoroughlyenjoyed this book and felt I could get to know the main characters as real people. As the story unfolds you are given glimpses of why the characters behave as they do. I liked the fact that the book ended suddenly - it seemed to make it more real.
I thoroughlyenjoyed this book, it's frank honesty was charming. It's spoken in the first person so if you spend read dialogue only, it may not appeal. The triumph of the human spirit & the honesty of true love is beautiful. Well worth the read.
I thoroughlyenjoyed this book, start to finish. And kudos to the Author because even though I didn't particularly like the judgemental nature of the lead protagonist I continued reading, and then finally understood that this judgemental nature was due to her illness. Perhaps I should not have been so quick to judge myself! I loved it. I found Raymond to be adorable, don't we all need a Raymond in our lives. The writing was amazingly good, so much so, I spent a lot of time using the dictionary to look up words, yes, I will admit it, my vocabulary is not so good. Worthy of five stars, and I don't give reviews often for books I read.
I thoroughlyenjoyed reading 'Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine' by Gail Honeyman. This was a fiction book I kept hearing about and a few people told me it was really good. I initially thought it might be a bit silly-I wondered if it would live up to the hype. It was great, totally different to what I expected.
I was laughing before the end of the first chapter-what a character Eleanor was going to be-so funny! It was so easy to read and so easy to get into. A refreshing change.
It went from great fun and quirky to intriguing, to revealing. You quickly realise that this will be a multi-layer work, there is far more to the story. The initial fun and quirky remarks amuse greatly-but then you see that there are deeper issues at work. There is a sadness about this girl. You begin to see what makes Eleanor, Eleanor. She says she 's completely fine-but she's really not fine at all!
I'm so glad I read it now, it was an unforgettable book.
