Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman - Book Review


Hands up who loves this book! πŸ™‹‍♀️πŸ™‹πŸ»‍♀️πŸ™‹πŸΌ‍♀️πŸ™‹πŸ½‍♀️πŸ™‹πŸΎ‍♀️ 

Isn’t it wonderful? 

Every once in a while a book comes along that touches your heart and stays with you. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman is one of those books. 

I read it back in 2017 and when someone asks me for a book recommendation it’s still at the top of my list. 

It’s a bundle of contradictions rolled into one - heartbreaking yet heartwarming, sad yet uplifting, serious but with a good sense of humour. 

Many of you will have read it by now, but if you haven’t – please put it at the top of your #tbr list!

Have you read Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine? I’d love to know what you think. 

Synopsis from HarperCollins Australia: Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend.

Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything.

One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world that everyone else seems to take for granted – while searching for the courage to face the dark corners she's avoided all her life.

Change can be good. Change can be bad. But surely any change is better than… fine?

Happy reading!
