A review by aurelia2
Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

emotional funny hopeful inspiring sad slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Really enjoyable narrative from Eleanor, she comes off initially as slightly unlikeable and very judgemental but quickly peels back the layers. A book about loneliness, grief, and trauma, this book has a comic/light enough tone to stop it getting bogged down in the sad details.
