Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine


By Gail Honeyman

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?

Beautifully written, a great story showing the power of kindness. The writing is so real, delicate and seamless that I could not stop reading it. A word of warning: tissues will be required as it will touch the hardest of hearts. An absolutely stunning debut. I look forward to reading more from Gail Honeyman
