This is a lovely book. It has a very strong emotional core which can be difficult to read, but the mood is constantly lightened with delightful humour. Eleanor is an alternately troubled and hilarious character, quite unlike any other character I can think of in literature.

So I started out with thinking that Eleanor is a really unlikable, arrogant, condescending character - and then I thought “possibly neurodivergent?” But then you’re introduced to the psycho mum and it’s more like “oh, it’s severe childhood trauma”.
This book is definitely darker than the blurb suggests and it’s sandwiched with quiet, mundane events in Eleanore’s life.

I don't have the words yet to articulate how much I adored this book. I didn't want it to end!

I’d give this book a 3.5. Eleanor Oliphant is endearing. You ended up loving her as a character and her development and healing. I didn’t go in knowing it was quite such a heavy story. Was a bit slow, but worth the read, for the two main characters. Would not reread and I didn't love the weird thing with her mom being dead but her still having phone conversations with here.
