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. ( )

Eleanor Oliphant is an endearing and funny character, rich of nuances, perfectly tridimensional. Her first-person account of life with trauma and mental health issues is so believable that one can really walk in her - most uncomfortable - shoes and understand something important about human nature, loneliness and even the mechanisms that push a person to the edge. This is the main reason why the novel narrowly escaped my "Brain Chewingum" shelf.
Don't get me wrong, I immensely enjoyed the novel, its humour and its levity. Maybe, though, there is a bit too much of the levity for the conclusion to ring authentic. All characters end up being generous, helpful, or at least nice enough to stop bullying Eleanor as soon as she changes haircut and shoes. The boss is understanding, the family of the old man that she and her new friend help is compact in their gratitude and acceptance, her friend Raymond is himself a paragon of patience. Honestly, it is all a bit too much strawberries and cream for the terrible topics of neglect, childhood abuse, loneliness, alcohol abuse, and heavy mental health problems that the novel depicts so well, drily and without melodrama.
That's why that fourth star remains in my pockets. This said, when I think about it, I do have people like Raymond and the other loving, sweet characters in my life, and I am most grateful for it. I also see how Gail Honeyman (what an apt and lovely name!) wanted to depict the dire cinsequences of loneliness and isolation, and the healing quality of connections. Just, she did it with a bit of a heavy hand, and this ended up forcing the plot towards a scarcely believable happy ending, given the premises. I wish life were that easy to mend. Anyway, she is good enough at writing likeable characters to make me happy that they ended up in a good place, no matter how much disbelief I had to suspend to make it happen. Thanks the Muse, she avoided going either full-fledged chick lit romance nor cheap thriller. For that, I am very grateful. ( )

The human need for connection, initially scorned by Eleanor, is this heart-rending novel’s central theme. Eleanor Oliphant is most definitely not completely fine, but she is one of the most unusual and thought-provoking heroines of recent contemporary fiction.

From pop-star crushes to meals for one, the life of an outsider is vividly captured in this joyful debut, discovered through a writing competition and sold for huge sums worldwide...And what a joy it is. The central character of Eleanor feels instantly and insistently real...This is a narrative full of quiet warmth and deep and unspoken sadness. It makes you want to throw a party and invite everyone you know and give them a hug, even that person at work everyone thinks is a bit weird.

Sport is a mystery to me. In primary school, sports day was the one day of the year when the less academically gifted students could triumph, winning prizes for jumping fastest in a sack, or running from point A to point B more quickly than their classmates. How they loved to wear those badges on their blazers the next day, as if a silver in the egg and spoon race was some sort of compensation for not understanding how to use an apostrophe.
I have always enjoyed reading, but I've never been sure how to select appropriate material. There are so many books in the world—how do you tell them all apart? How do you know which one will match your tastes and interests? That's why I just pick the first book I see. There's no point trying to choose. The covers are of very little help, because they always say only good things, and I've found out to my cost that they're rarely accurate. "Exhilarating" "Dazzling" "Hilarious." No.
She was shiny too, her skin, her hair, her shoes, her teeth. I hadn't even realized before; I am matte, dull, scuffed.
