Costa First Novel Book Award winner 2017 - The Sunday Times best seller - AudioFile Magazine Earphones Award Winner Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon. Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive - but not how to live. Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend. Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything. One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world that everyone else seems to take for granted - while searching for the courage to face the dark corners she's avoided all her life. Change can be good. Change can be bad. But surely any change is better than...fine? This audiobook contains an exclusive interview with author Gail Honeyman and narrator Cathleen McCarron.
I was not expecting to fall in love with this book at all but I have! It's a total feel good book with moments of complete sadness and just as much laugh out loud moments. The minute I finished it I wanted to read it again...
I heard this reviewed on Radio 2 or I might not have purchased it given the subject matter.
How glad I am that I did! Couldn't turn it off. At times sad but mostly funny and uplifting. Makes you appreciate how lucky you are. Beautifully read.
Didn't want it to end
Beautifully narrated, the characters just came to life. I felt myself rooting for Eleanor more and more as the story progressed.
