Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

by Gail Honeyman
  If you love quirky characters, you will love this story. Eleanor is unique and socially awkward - she does not pick up on everyday social clues. However, she is endearing, and seeing the world through her eyes makes for a fantastic story - you don't want the book to end.

Praise For This Book


"Simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking. . . Eleanor Oliphant may be completely fine, but this book is completely wonderful." -PureWow

"Eleanor Oliphant is a truly original literary creation: funny, touching, and unpredictable. Her journey out of dark shadows is expertly woven and absolutely gripping." -Jojo Moyes, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You

"This wacky, charming novel...draws you in with humor, then turns out to contain both a suspenseful subplot and a sweet romance....Hilarious and moving."-People

"A charmer...satisfyingly quirky."-Janet Maslin, The New York Times "Books to Breeze Through This Summer"

"Move over, Ove (in Fredrik Backman's A Man Called Ove)-there's a new curmudgeon to love. . . Walking in Eleanor's practical black Velcro shoes is delightfully amusing, her prudish observations leavened with a privately puckish humor. But readers will also be drawn in by her tragic backstory, which slowly reveals how she came to be so entirely Eleanor. Witty, charming, and heartwarming, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is a remarkable debut about a singular woman. Readers will cheer Eleanor as she confronts her dark past and turns to a brighter future. Feel good without feeling smarmy." -Booklist (starred review)

"Deeply compelling" -Vox

"Eleanor Oliphant is endearing, [a] whip-smart read. . . Perfectly paced, odd, shocking and hilarious, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is a fascinating story about loneliness, hope, tragedy and humanity. Honeyman's delivery is wickedly good, and Eleanor won't leave you anytime soon." -Associated Press

"Honeyman's endearing debut is part comic novel, part emotional thriller, and part love story. . . hilarious, deadpan, and irresistible." -Kirkus Reviews

"[A] captivating debut. . . a feel-good story that will make readers laugh and cheer for Eleanor as she learns that the past doesn't dictate the future, and that happiness can be hers. This is a must-read for those who love characters with quirks." -BookPage
