Book Review: Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine
5 Stars. 5 Stars. 5 Stars.
I wish I could erase this book from my memory and re-read it. I find myself becoming besties with fictional characters a little too often. I've got Sirius Black, Anne, Scout, and well now, of course Eleanor.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. She goes to her office job 5 days a week, and on the weekends, she treats herself to frozen pizza and a bottle of vodka. Her hair skims her heels and she doesn't have any friends, but that's okay. She's doing really well, thank you very much.
Except maybe she isn't.
This book pulled me in quite quickly. I loved the name, the cover, and the fact that it took place in a British setting. This story of Eleanor has it all. You will be sad one chapter and peeing your knickers the next. I read it in one day, truly falling in love with the character driven story of Eleanor's perfectly damaged heart.
Gail Honeyman blew it out of the water with this debut novel, and I can't wait to read what comes next with her writing.
