Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

Synopsis

No oneโ€™s ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine.

Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what sheโ€™s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.

But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymondโ€™s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.

Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . .

The only way to survive is to open your heart.

Review

What a remarkable book about an extremely interesting character Eleanor…. I would strongly recommend this book to anybody that likes a character driven story, this book was just filled with remarkable characters that were so extremely well developed…. Eleanor, motivated by an extremely one sided crush decides she’s going to improve herself… along the way she makes a friend in Raymond, he and my opinion is the true hero of the story, without him Eleanor would not have grown or made herself a better person, as much as she did…. it is really just a simple story of how a single person and a single act of kindness, can impact your life so much for the better…..

With Kindness,

Berit

  1. Oohh I have read a review completely different from this one! The person did not like the book that much and rate it with a 3 I think. I find yours so interesting and simple. I like that not too much text but enough to left me thinking. I have wonder about this book and now I don’t know if I should or not read it haha

    I can’t buy it though so… I will still have a lot of time to think XD
