#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 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. . .   The only way to survive is to open your heart.

A heartwarming story about Eleanor discovering the world - and herself - through her own eyes. It is extremely funny at times. Gail does a fantastic job making Eleanor so likeable and developing her character over time.

Incredibly heart warming and exceptionally well-written story about the quirky Eleanor and her discovery of the joys of life! It can be really dark at times and takes a few pages to get into but oh so worth it! Highly recommend! ❤️

This was such an impactful story where the character built up through the entire book. It started off a bit off and somewhat slow but the character evolved. It was both funny, sad and optimistic! Great book!

This book pulls at your heartstrings and will resonate with almost anyone who at some point in their lives has felt a little alone. A very insightful and fresh take on society today, and how the smallest actions can mean so much to someone.

Such a great book! Easy read, that has a darker side and explores topics worth thinking about. I think (?) I like we’re left with questions at the end, feels less cliche which I was dreading happening. I also now want a cat.

A MUST! This character had my attention and my heart. Every moment of her life, the way she thought and the things she went through had me laughing and crying at the same time. This story is based on daily situations through the eyes of a person who had no ordinary life. I have to say, every single person should read this book and reflect on the impact our actions have on other people every day. ✨

A cute story about an awkward girl coming out of her shell and experiencing life while dealing with traumas of her past. It was good, not great.

For the most part it was a fun story, told from the perspective of a woman with a dark past. She has a hard time interacting with other people and has very poor social skills.
