You must read this book if you’re desperate for a new kind of story.
So well written and interesting. I highly recommend this book. Especially if you need a break from heavy content but aren’t looking for an easy beach read either. I know I’ll read this again.
Absolutely loved it!
Eleanor is such a quirky and charming character. Her inner monologues and unfiltered perspective of life are hilarious and make her so easy to love. This story will make you laugh, cry, and have you cheering on the-perfectly fine, simply wonderful- Eleanor Oliphant!
I absolutely loved this book. Eleanor is unique and yet very relatable in so many ways. The story is beautiful, at times dark, and shows how the gift of friendship can make such a great impact in someone’s world. I couldn’t put this book down!
I started this book, (as it was the months choice for my church book club), with some hesitation, thinking it wasn’t the type of material I would be interested in. So I was surprised to realize the further I got into her story, the more attached I became to Miss. Oliphant and Raymond. I loved her innermost thoughts, judgements and psycho babble chatter. It made me giggle out loud. Then, needing to know what happened to her made it difficult to put the book down.
In reality, she is a person that I probably wouldn’t have given much time, thought or attention to. That made me sad..... and forced me rethink how we treat others in passing or in the work place. Kindness, honesty, love, acceptance, sacrifice, service. All characteristics of a good human being. We could all take lessons from Raymond.
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.
gorgeous girl me
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.
