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.… (més)

A sweet story that was just what I needed right now. I have seen a few reviews that sneered at this Costa winner because it isn't "literary", but it is a book that made me feel good and I don't require something demanding from every book I read. There are lessons in this story about friendship and having worth as a human being that some people who read it need to learn, and for that reason alone it is well worth reading. ( )

this read is about Eleanor oliphant, a 29-year-old who had a traumatic childhood and lacks some social skills. she is witty and literal to the core (which makes for a quirky read, but a good one). people in her office and in public think she is strange, but that doesn’t bother her because she finds everyone else’s behaviors to be odd. she’s been blind to her emotional needs as her physical needs have been met & she hasn’t had any aspirations because she is “just fine”. vodka is her coping mechanism and she spends her days very structured, with some phone calls with Mummy thrown in there, and avoiding unnecessary contact with people. she finds herself to be “head over heels” for a musician and then along comes Raymond.⠀

there was a lot of detail written to describe how things looked, which made the story feel slow at times at first, but i realize it made sense with how particular Eleanor views the world. Eleanor had such a beautiful perspective as everyone took moments for granted that someone like Eleanor would have cherished. Eleanor was clearly lonely and she was longing for someone to hold her & to touch her once she got a glimpse of what it felt like to have her emotional needs met too. the book seemed to foreshadow romance being the end goal & what lifts Eleanor out of her “fineness”, but I don’t think that was the case with this story. there is so much growth in her throughout the book in addressing her trauma, socializing, etc., and I felt so happy for her to finally be embracing who she was made to be with others embracing her too. we all need a Raymond! the only thing I wish, is that it would have talked about what happened in her childhood earlier because i found myself searching for those details for almost the whole book and I was getting slightly impatient haha, but again, I think I understand why it wasn’t revealed to us in the end since Eleanor herself wasn’t willing to address this trauma just yet.

overall, I’d recommend! It wasn’t an “on the edge of your seat” read, but it messed with your emotions in the best way.

Terrifying and sad events shaped the character and life of a 30-year-old lady. With other prejudices, bullying and no one faithful and reliable around, Eleanor wasn’t able to cope and closed that dark chapter of her life that made her susceptible to poor and abusive relationships.

I know that this is a fiction novel, but I believe this describes perfectly some people out there that silently are suffering on their own.

At the beginning, I found the novel a bit boring but with some funny comments here and there, I continue my reading until I could not stop because all I wanted to know if she was going to be fine. I knew at all times that something bad happened to her because of her behaviour. Sometimes is not necessary that something bad happens to anyone for behaviours like that. Some people really don´t make easy social interactions and fail to integrate others. ( )

I am writing this after listening to only one part of 11 parts, but I fear I won't be finishing this. I find the idiosyncrasy of the heroine involving, but not the kind I want to spend a dozen hours with. Too demoralising. I need my heroes, my admirable women. ( )
  Okies | Jan 9, 2021 |
This book was pitched to me like "female Sheldon" and I think that description is terribly misleading. This book definitely needs a TW for childhood abuse and all the trauma that comes from that. Eleanor, as a character, is completely endearing as you understand totally how she's thinking and why other people just don't get her. I was rooting for her the whole time and I loved the ending and how it didn't fall into cliche. ( )

The human need for connection, initially scorned by Eleanor, is this heart-rending novel’s central theme. Eleanor Oliphant is most definitely not completely fine, but she is one of the most unusual and thought-provoking heroines of recent contemporary fiction.
 
From pop-star crushes to meals for one, the life of an outsider is vividly captured in this joyful debut, discovered through a writing competition and sold for huge sums worldwide...And what a joy it is. The central character of Eleanor feels instantly and insistently real...This is a narrative full of quiet warmth and deep and unspoken sadness. It makes you want to throw a party and invite everyone you know and give them a hug, even that person at work everyone thinks is a bit weird.

Sport is a mystery to me. In primary school, sports day was the one day of the year when the less academically gifted students could triumph, winning prizes for jumping fastest in a sack, or running from point A to point B more quickly than their classmates. How they loved to wear those badges on their blazers the next day, as if a silver in the egg and spoon race was some sort of compensation for not understanding how to use an apostrophe.
I have always enjoyed reading, but I've never been sure how to select appropriate material. There are so many books in the world—how do you tell them all apart? How do you know which one will match your tastes and interests? That's why I just pick the first book I see. There's no point trying to choose. The covers are of very little help, because they always say only good things, and I've found out to my cost that they're rarely accurate. "Exhilarating" "Dazzling" "Hilarious." No.
She was shiny too, her skin, her hair, her shoes, her teeth. I hadn't even realized before; I am matte, dull, scuffed.
