Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, by Gail Honeyman

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine: A Novel

 

This book was recommended by a friend who absolutely loved it. I loved Eleanor’s quirky character and elusive background. At first, I thought this was women’s fiction leaning toward romance, but really it’s a self discovery book. Though Eleanor is thirty, it’s a coming of age story set in Scotland. Due to the life experiences of this strong, no-nonsense young woman, she is driven to explore the boundaries of her inner confines. Without giving anything away, you will laugh, cry, relate in so many ways to the explorations of Eleanor (Some you probably wouldn’t share openly.) Checking the inspirational, heartfelt, and a great ‘day in the life of’ boxes, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, is a perfect example of a good book. Wonderfully written and recorded, I loved listening to the audio.
