Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

Book 29 of 52: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.

This book hit me in a way I didn’t expect, based on the description in the sleeve. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine follows Eleanor as she navigates her very routine, solitary life. Eleanor is a thirty year old woman who has always been alone – growing up in foster care from a young age, she has always had her basic needs taken care of, but her emotional needs have been neglected. She has never had a friend or someone that she can lean on. And then one day, everything changes. Eleanor finds herself in situations that are brand new to her – and not altogether unpleasant.

This book is a mixture of laugh out loud funny, and heartbreaking. It reminds you to be empathetic to every person that you meet. And it reminds people that it’s ok to lean on someone, and let yourself feel. In fact, it’s absolutely necessary.
