Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is a debut novel by Gail Honeyman that went on to win a Costa award and has just been crowned Book of the Year at the British Book Awards.

Eleanor is an outsider who relies upon ritual to get her through. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meals… and buys two bottles of vodka to stave off the loneliness of the weekends.¬†

One small act of kindness shatters her routines, and gives her the courage to face the darkness of her past. But this is far from being a dark read. It’s laugh out loud funny in places, touching and has a real feel good factor.¬†Highly recommended!
