Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
(Pamela Dorman Books – May 2, 2017)
Love, love, loved! Eleanor is one of the most unique and lovable characters I have read, while being simultaneously the saddest and most ravaged by life. I can’t review this book very well without spoilers because all I want to do is talk about all the parts I loved and all the people I loved……and I did NOT see the part at the end coming, and the !!!! You see? This is one I just need to talk about and not actually review. Just loved it, though. It’s a love letter to all the people who have suffered trauma in our world and risen in spite of it. Hallelujah for Eleanor Oliphant – I just want to give her a HUGE hug, although she wouldn’t appreciate it at all 😉
I listened to the audiobook from Audible, and the audio narration was amazing and definitely added to the story with the Scottish accents. Would highly recommend this version if you are a fan of audiobooks!
