I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Eleanor! She is quirky, she is unique, she is very logical, she is well-spoken, she is intellectually intelligent, she is hilariously funny but…she is not completely fine. Far from it. I couldn’t wait to find out how she pulls through.— Kathy W.
Eleanor Oliphant is not completely fine, but she keeps telling herself that she is. Although intelligent and proper, Eleanor speaks her mind, and often voices shared opinions that I'm afraid to voice myself. After living a life in solitude for years, Eleanor learns what happens when you let people in. Of course, there are roadblocks along the way, such as learning modern technology, getting a makeover, as well as unearthing suppressed memories from trauma. This novel also advocates for mental health counseling.— Taryn
“Eleanor Oliphant has quickly become one of my favorite fictional characters, and this novel one of my favorite books. Eleanor is completely original and the right kind of weird. Her life and her past, combined with such kindhearted characters, made for a compulsively readable, heartwarming story that I did not want to put down. I can't wait for this book to come out so many more can fall in love with Eleanor. Highly, highly recommended.”
