Summary:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER AND THE PERFECT HOLIDAY GIFT 

A Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick

“Beautifully written and incredibly funny, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is about the importance of friendship and human connection. I fell in love with Eleanor, an eccentric and regimented loner whose life beautifully unfolds after a chance encounter with a stranger; I think you will fall in love, too!” —Reese Witherspoon

No one’s ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine. 

Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. 

But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.

Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . .
 
The only way to survive is to open your heart.

    Slow start, then very enjoyable! Excellent narration. Definitely worth that kind of missing the book now that it’s over. Give it a try.

    Loved this story. Ended a little too quickly but can't wait for the sequel ( hint, hint). The Scottish accent was beautiful to listen to and easy to understand. Brilliant!

    Hands down the best book ever. Her keen witty phrasings had me laughing out loud. I wrote a few down for myself to memorize and use at the appropriate moment. My book clubs number one favorite book.

    COMPLETELY DRY I kept seeing reviews for this book and it was a recommended book amongst my book club so i thought why not, however I didn't really think this book was good read. I understand the message it was portraying yet the story was a bit dry. The author could of talked about the deranged mother more, to show Eleanor's survival and mainframe after dealing with her mothers failed attempt yo kill her and the death of her sister. The after affects of the foster homes and living alone after trauma. there's so many ways or directions that could have been taken to show a clearer picture and to make the story more enjoyable. oh well, can't get that time back, on to the next one. #book23of2019 #bookworm #whatsnext
