Synopsis

The Sunday Times bestseller and Costa First Novel Award winner. Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon `Funny, touching and unpredictable' Jojo Moyes 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? `Heartwrenching and wonderful' Nina Stibbe `Deft, compassionate and moving' Paula McLain `I adored it. Skilled, perceptive, Eleanor's world will feel familiar to you from the very first page. An outstanding debut!' Joanna Cannon

I enjoyed this book so much. Despite what was a very harrowing background it was such an uplifting read as you watch Eleanor blossom and find friendship. It was also very funny to read Eleanor's internal monologue and her very acerbic comments about people.

It's rare to read a book these days that is completely "different" or "unique" - phrases overused in publishing discourse - in a way that doesn't use either adjective as a reason for it to be read. Eleanor Oliphant is quite different to most books I read last year, and I would certainly class it as unique, but in a quite ordinary way still. The voice of the narrator is both familiar and uncomfortable, the circumstances which fostered its development even more so, and the theme of the book is kindness. Reading it changed me for the better.
