Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she's thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond's big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.… (mais)

Mighty fine!
Eleanor Oliphant has good days, bad days and better days. Her life is a strictly timetabled routine – work with a Meal Deal and cryptic crossword at lunchtime, home for pesto, pasta and The Archers, weekends starting with a margherita pizza washed down with wine and litres of vodka. A routine to combat loneliness and being alone. A routine that is begging to be broken.
Narrated in the first person, Eleanor’s life story slowly unfolds with hints to the mystery and darkness shrouding her past present from the start.
Funny and sad, it painfully peels back the layers that Eleanor has carefully encased herself in, stuck down as firmly as her sensible, Velcro-fastening shoes.
Acts of kindness, an ill-conceived infatuation and an unexpected friendship cause Eleanor to realise that she isn’t the guilty, hopeless and unworthy social outcast she believed herself to be but somebody people genuinely admire, respect and care about.
I loved seeing the world through Eleanor’s eyes, her spin on nail bars, clothes shopping, death metal gigs and a Hollywood bikini wax. Her specialness and otherness is endearing and engaging, her lack of off filter absolutely hysterical at times.
Hashtag be kind - to yourself and others. ( )

It was a really good book - I started reading it in the evening and I couldn't stop until I finished it late at night :) Eleanor seems very boring and predictable in the beginning, but in reality is so complicated and deeply suffering person, and her way of dealing with the world is quite unique. I loved the book, it made me both laugh and cry, it was one of the best books I've recently read. ( )

What an interesting, humorous, and very real character Eleanor Oliphant is, despite that she is unlike anyone I ever met. She is odd, secretive, anti-social, OCD, and seemingly humorless at the office she has worked at for a number of years, where we first meet her. She is a hard worker all week, but every Friday she leaves the office, stops at a local store to pick up pizza and two bottles of vodka, which she proceeds to drink over the weekend, and she speaks to nobody until Monday morning. It turns out that there are numerous reasons for Ms. Oliphant's isolation, which are peeled away over the course of the novel. I understand this is Ms. Honeyman's debut novel, and I look forward to reading more of her writing in the future. ( )

I loved this book! Eleanor is such an odd character, but you can't help rooting for her even before you find out about her past. I hated for her story to end. I'd like to know how the rest of her life turned out. ( )

Just like Eleanor this book is a little prickly and hard to love at first but eventually it opens up and turns into something lovely.

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.
