#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER AND THE PERFECT HOLIDAY GIFT 

A Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick

“Beautifully written and incredibly funny, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is about the importance of friendship and human connection. I fell in love with Eleanor, an eccentric and regimented loner whose life beautifully unfolds after a chance encounter with a stranger; I think you will fall in love, too!” —Reese Witherspoon

No one’s ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine. 

Meet 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 social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. 

But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.

Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . .

Odd.. but rewarding

I have to be honest, I found myself cringing with second hand embarrassment for the first part of the book. I was close to quitting, it made me feel so uncomfortable. I do NOT understand anyone who finds this funny. It was clear from the get go that something was WRONG. She isn’t just the way she is. The way bits and pieces revealed themselves about her past and her family, that kept me engaged. The second half of the book is a phenomenal and raw look at the rock bottom feeling of declining mental health. As someone who has struggled myself, it was heartbreakingly accurate. The novel unfolded into this beautiful journey of self discovery and recovery. I was pleasantly surprised and deeply moved. I felt the warmth and love grow for Eleanor. She transformed.. and so did my opinion of this book.

Excellent

Very smartly written and deeply honest. Explores many critical issues regarding mental health that need to be out in the open. And also dine with a great sense of humor!

Captivating

Although Eleanor’s circumstances and experiences were unique to her, the theme of loneliness felt singularly universal. I think this is especially true for the millennial generation.
