From the Inside Flap
Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive - but not how to live
Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend.
Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything.
One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world that everyone else seems to take for granted - while searching for the courage to face the dark corners she's avoided all her life.
Change can be good. Change can be bad. But surely any change is better than... fine?
An astonishing story that powerfully depicts the loneliness of life, and the simple power of a little kindness

My only critique is that Maria and Marianne names are too similar - won't spoil the plot of who they are - of course in real life we are surrounded by similar names but in fiction it can be hard to keep up!
I loved the way her true character begins to emerge from its frozen state and she starts to form friendships. A heart warming book.
A wonderful readable story.
I felt towards the last 1/8 of the book it fell a bit flat. The ending felt rushed. Like the author was trying to wrap everything up and tie loose ends. There was no real ending as such.
However, I would still recommend reading it!
By the middle I was really rooting for Eleanor and her progress.
Her lack of social skills where actually very entertaining/cringe.
At times I wanted to cover my eyes and read on through the gaps in my fingers...Awkward is an understatement lol.
There where ups and downs, tears and laughter. A real emotional rollercoaster.
Some serious issues where covered. Like loss, depression, abuse, loneliness.
Then on the flip side there was the more light hearted and happy topics. Friendship, acceptance, strength, love and Growth.
I would highly recommend this book!
