Book review: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

This book almost rendered me speechless.

Love the main characters, how the book deals with difficult topics and how it sheds light on loneliness in young people in their 20s and 30s, which is often overlooked.

It’s also a reminder of the importance of small acts of kindness and what an impact they can have.

You can’t help but love Eleanor’s idiosyncrasies and how blunt she is.

‘“No thank you,” I said. “I don’t want to accept a drink from you, because then I would be obliged to purchase one for you in return, and I’m afraid I’m simply not interested in spending two drinks’ worth of time with you.”
