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)

At the beginning it seems maybe Eleanor is just odd/eccentric or possibly on the autism spectrum, but by the time she gets to the vodka it's clear something is really, really wrong. Sense and Sensibility meets Jane Eyre meets Sybil. I won't say too much more other than the only reason I am not giving it five stars is that I felt certain climactic scenes needed more development.

Little Acts of Transformation

Rarely does a novel leave you uttering, “Wow,” as Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine does. Gail Honeyman portrays a truly quirky character, a young woman of 30 seemingly lacking any social skills and not particularly interested in cultivating them. She lives alone. She works in the backroom of an office as an accounts receivable clerk. She drinks excessively. She crushes on a rock musician as if he will lift her from her life of loneliness. And then with an office acquaintance she barely knows she comes to the aid of an old man in distress.

In that moment, her life begins to slowly change into the lower case fine, meaning a work in progress, of the title. Though Eleanor’s life rests on a foundation of terrible suffering, one that never allows her to acknowledge her worth as a human being, her very oddness endears her to us almost from the start and turns us, like the acquaintance Raymond, into her biggest supporters. Most readers will find the story at once sad, funny, and, inspirational.

While the novel will have you laughing, often out loud, a great trauma underlies Eleanor. She is the narrator of her own story. She controls what we know about her. For a very long time, we know mostly her peculiarities. She reveals her emotional pain very slowly, but most pointedly in her weekly phone conversations with her mother, whom we are to believe is incarcerated either in a prison or a madhouse; though incarcerated she is, as readers learn. These abusive exchanges will be the most painful parts of the novel for some, for they are excoriating emotional floggings that go to the very heartlessness of Eleanor’s lack of self-worth. And why this emotional crippling, this deprivation of kindness and warmth? Well, that’s for readers to discover after Eleanor suffers a crisis of near-death gravity and she lands in the office of therapist Marie Temple.

This is to say that while the novel contains much humor, that watching Eleanor navigate the world and observe it both with disgust and wittiness, it at its heart is a tale of loneliness, sadness, and self-inflicted pain that finds redemption in small acts of human interaction and caring, all these exemplified by the strangest of rescuers, the rumpled, pudgy, Marlboro Red man that is Raymond Gibbons. Eleanor certainly is a character you’ll find forgetting hard to do. The same, perhaps, is even truer of Raymond, for ever was there a kinder and understanding young man?

If you are one of the few people worldwide who has not yet read this novel, better get to it. You’ll be quite happy you did.

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.
