Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

summary Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine 108 Librarian's note An alternate cover edition can be found hereNo one’s ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fineMeet 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 unnecessary human contact where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza. Eleanor Oliphant is completely 100% fine She goes to her office job five days a week and then treats herself to a frozen pizza and a bottle of vodka on a weekend She lives alone and doesn t have any friends but that s okay She s doing real well thank you very much Except maybe she isn t Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine caught me completely unawares I ll be honest I picked it up because it got some buzz and the author is British but it actually turned out to be one of those perfectly balanced sadfunny books Maybe like some combination of The Rosie Project Me Before You Finding Audrey and A Man Called Ove It takes a serious traumatic issue and weaves it into a warm funny and yes sometimes sad taleI read a lot of books and many characters come and go Some are well developed and interesting others less so But on a rare occasion I find one of those truly memorable characters that will stay with me a long time Eleanor is one of them She is socially clueless in a way that puts my teen self to shame She is literal to a degree that everyone finds odd It s painful to witness and yet so so endearingI think I like this book so much because it is actually really sad but never manipulative On a surface level it s a very funny novel about a socially inept twenty nine year old woman Her attempts to become normal and integrate into society by having manicures and waxes are sources of hilarity But it is very sad It s sad when we see her coworkers talking about her but Eleanor is oblivious to their scorn It s sad how alone in life she is It s sad when she falls in love with an idea of a personIt s not a romantic book and I m glad There are hints that the central relationship will eventually develop into romance but this is really a book about Eleanor I am thankful that the author didn t cure Eleanor and lead her out of the darkness by having her fall in love Being happy and achieving greater self worth should in my opinion never be linked to romanceI really enjoyed it It s great to find a book so packed full of emotion without seeming overly sentimentalBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube
