This book is a quick read that is full of quirky humor and emotional upheaval about transformation and growth of an individual woman. All of which is mixed in with a mystery and some surprising twists! Has that peaked your interest? Will not be sorry you opened!
I can’t remember the last time I read a book that was so...smart. The heroine’s voice is funny, engaging, and a window into the mind and coping mechanisms of a person who has endured personal tragedy and abuse. A poignant reminder of the necessity of human connection and compassion. Loved every second.

Thoroughly enjoyed this. Laughs and sad moments.
Quirky sad and funny all at the same time!
Heartwarming, insightful, and funny. One of the most well-developed characters I've read in a long time.

Much like Eleanor I think we all spend a lot of time thinking we are okay on our own. We don’t need anyone else. Then on the flip side, we see people different then us, and think they’re strange. If we open up & get to know people, we find life is better with others around us.
Brilliant. While the story might be obvious, young woman, traumatized as a child, begins to find hope and love , the storytelling is exquisite. I was angry at Eleanor at times and at times you feel as broken as she was. Brilliant is all I can say. I want more.
Never thought I’d grow to love and hope the best for the strange and eccentric Eleanor Oliphant.
What an expertly crafted book. Revealing little by little what we needed to get to know Eleanor and her quirky survival techniques. We all should learn to be kinder and not judgmental. There is probably good reason for people’s strange behavior

This first time novelist has written a riveting story revealing the life of EO. The storyline contains sad and funny elements carefully intertwined as the novel unfolds. Characters are richly drawn. At times it was easy to envision becoming friends with the characters. They help the plot move along as we see Eleanor grow to be a woman confident of herself but willing to become vulnerable to the life story of others as she is drawn into their lives. This is a truly enjoyable novel.
I highly recommend it.
This book captured my interest and my heart from start to finish. I absolutely loved it!!!
At first, I wasn’t sure if I would like this book. But it did not take long to get to know and root for Eleanor! Nicely done.
