This book broke my heart and put it back together, but I will still need a few days to recover.

Maybe I'm reading into it way too much, but the blurbs on my copy of the book described it as "incredibly funny" and "satisfyingly quirky." They called Eleanor a "new curmudgeon to love." I think describing this book as such does the character of Eleanor a disservice. She is traumatized and is (I suspect, though it is never outright stated in the text) more than a little neurodivergent. 

I sincerely hope that Reese Witherspoon is as kind to Eleanor in the impending movie adaptation as Raymond, Sammy, Maria, and Bob are to her in this book.

I liked the twist at the end about the mom. Imo it was a bit slow and a few pages could’ve been edited out. A book about trauma, loneliness, friendship and a journey of recovery.
Spoiler Was expecting E and R to end up together tbh, but I think that’s just me being in my romantic reads era

The only reason I finished this book was because I had to read it for school. It was so boring until a little more than half way. Then I finally started to care about Eleanor. Before that she was annoying for no reason. Atleast now she has a reason to be. 

Another thing is that somehow this woman knows nothing about modern society. Even the most tech deprived people I know, have phones and know what pop culture references are.
