Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine (By Gail Honeyman)

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine : A NovelWhen I started this book, I was not able to put it down; I cannot wait to read about what happens next. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is a story about “a quirky yet lonely woman whose social misunderstandings and deeply ingrained routines could be changed forever—if she can bear to confront the secrets she has avoided all her life. But if she does, she’ll learn that she, too, is capable of finding friendship—and even love—after all.” (goodread)

There weren’t many characters in this story. However, each of them are lovable and especially Eleanor–you really feel yourself grow with her through the story, and experience what she was feeling. She is truly weird and wonderful. This is an important book about mental health, family relationship, dealing with loss. Yet, Honeyman is able to take on an humorous tone that makes you laugh and cry.

This book is just published in May. Highly recommended!! Especially if you liked The Rosie Project, Courting Greta, Lost and Found, and anything like that, you will really enjoy this book.
