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?

An astonishing story that powerfully depicts the loneliness of life, and the simple power of a little kindness

This book is well written. Although the subject matter is quite heavy, it's a very easy book to read. A real page turner. After completing the book in only a couple of days, I was sad to say farewell to Eleanor but knew that she had grown and was on the right track.

A good and thought provoking read

An interesting story that unfolds gradually as you are drip fed parts of Eleanor's story from her point of view. She hides the whole story from the reader, her associates and herself. A good read.
