‘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?

    You can’t really describe what this book is about without it sounding odd, but it’s so wonderful and makes you really think about and appreciate the small things in life!

    Wonderful book. You commit to the characters quickly. It is extraordinarily sad at times but holds a humour and generous narrative about friendships formed and solidified that is restorative to the soul!

    My name is Mark I am 46 and until now I have never read a book from front to back, when I started reading Eleanor oliphant is completely fine I couldn't wait to finish it but at the same time I never wanted it to end. Thank you. P.s I can now do my book report set as homework by myEnglish teacher in 1986.

    I read this book in less than 2 weeks and that is very quick for me! But I just couldn’t put it down and when I did, I couldn’t wait to pick it back up again. The storyline and main character, Eleanor, is so inspiring and relative. I would 100% recommend anyone to give this a read.

    A wonderfully compassionate journey into the world of a young girl/woman who has had some incredibly difficult situations to cope with. More of an experience than a book.....thoroughly absorbing and delightful.

    Am not an avid reader. But this book had me from the beginning. The type of book that you read at 3am to get you back to sleep and at 6 you’re still reading. Fantastic read
  • Slightly overrated

    I was recommended this book by a few people. I found I had reached the 500th page out of 700 and nothing had really happened, it was mainly about Eleanor’s day to day life. Only until I read a little further it got really interesting and I couldn’t put it down.

    I was unsure when I first started reading this book. I pretty much couldn’t stand Eleanor at first and wondered how the author was going to make me change my mind. Once you get to know her, you end up loving her, mesmerised even! I have a difficult and similar relationship with my mother and it caused me to become completely hooked!! The ending was a bit of a cliffhanger so I’m hoping for a sequel (pretty please)?! Definitely worth a read people!!
  • A great easy read

    What a lovely book. Very easy to read and thoroughly enjoyable. The character was very likeable and I really wanted the best for her. Was it an obvious ending, yes, did I care, No. I would recommend this book to anyone. One thing that I will say is that it is a very easy book to read, I finished it in one day so don’t expect it to last the length of your holiday!!!
