Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman Book Summary


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.

Loved it!. It was a good read! Eleanor is a delightfully, honest character! She kept me interested and wondering what would be revealed next!

Excellent Read. Was a great story. I definitely had a hard time putting it down. Easy read

We’re cheering for you Eleanor. Oh, I just loved this book. What a hilarious, sad, and dark book. It had everything and more. I haven’t read a book this good in so long. Thank you for writing it.

Lives up to the ratings.. Such a unique book, with very unexpected and unpredictable twists and turns. I took a personal liking to the characters and was rooting for them throughout. A new fave!

Loved it. This was such a fun book to read. It catches you off guard by her personality. But the more you read into the book, the more you relate to everyday things she has going on. Easily became a favorite of mine.

Loved it. Wonderfully written. Couldn’t put down!

Peeling Back the Layers. I was left absolutely speechless at the end of this one. Gail Honeyman’s novel truly had a bit of everything. I loved the hilarious and cringy social commentary by way of a uniquely voiced narrator. I was lured in deeper watching her self discovery that plays over the chapters. I was emotionally gripped by the journey inwards and towards truth that the Honeyman walks us to with masterful skill. The final twist at the end, whether obvious or not, adds so many more layers of intrigue to the entire book. The anchor of this book is in the journey of belonging. The complexity of navigating social situations and relationships and even just random interactions naturally without conking off as a crazy person. The winds that make this particular journey unique are the breadcrumb trail of clues into our protagonist’s past from page to page. Combined with her justifiable general distrust of people, you have a story of someone you are rooting for but can’t completely trust. I enjoyed this read on par with the likes of Marquez and Cervantes. In that they created compellingly “mad” characters in their major works that challenged what identity, history, and insanity truly were using winding and swirling narratives that boarded on chaos. Gail Honeyman has done the same here. Though pulling that style forward into contemporary times and covering a number of modern issues and dilemmas that make it hard to put down.

Beautiful!. What a vocabulary! Love how she turns a phrase and crafts such a touching story!

Captivating. Although Eleanor’s circumstances and experiences were unique to her, the theme of loneliness felt singularly universal. I think this is especially true for the millennial generation.

Great Read. Great book. Charming and funny.

Loved it!. So well written! In such a warm and very interesting story.

Must read.. Fantastic. Could not put it down. What a heart-warming story about loneliness and friendship, as well as self-awareness and care. Eleanor is a truly inspirational under-dog.

Wonderful book!. A very cleverly written story about a socially awkward woman and her escape from her childhood trauma through the love and friendship of a few good people( and some good therapy). I fell in love with Eleanor Oliphant!

So Good!. Such a compelling story! I couldn’t put it down. The layers of the story are woven together so well. I was really surprised at the end about her mother’s phone calls. Maybe should have figured it out, but didn’t. What a story! So well told!

Enjoyed this so much!!!. Warm and heartfelt. Absolutely loved this book.

Heartwarming and Unexpected. I didn’t expect this book to get as deep as it did, and I’m so pleased with every aspect of it. There were times of laughter, tears, and deep complexity that made me finish in under two days. This is going to be a book that I go back to for sure, especially when I’m in need of a pick me up!

Witty and intriguing. Loved the clever narrative of Eleanor. The first part of the book was maybe a bit slow at times but was a real page turner at the end.

An enjoyable read!. This book made me laugh, and it made me cry. I love the voice of Eleanor, and especially enjoy the vocabulary she uses. I look forward to more books by this author.

Delightfully surprised. I was surprised by a lot of things with this book and that is a hard thing to accomplish! I wasn’t prepared for the ending or to actually like Elenor or the thought of Elenor and Raymond! ❤️ Delightfully surprised.

A - F Scale: C. Quirky. Drawn Out. Ending: Good

I just loved it!. It touched my feelings and it made me want to keep reading! I finished it in like two days and only because I have to work. Such a good book, such a good and unexpected turn of events. By the way, we all need a Raymond in our lives!!!

Almost quit glad I didn’t. A really beautifully written book about a very depressing subject….hard at first but keep going

Sad that it ended!. When people told me that I needed to read this book, I wasn’t sure. When I started it, I still wasn’t sure. Then I finished it and was so sad to have it be over. One of the best books I have read.

Loved this!. ❤️

Odd but so good. This is one of the oddest books I’ve ever read. Despite the many quirks of Eleanor and how socially awkward she is, I couldn’t wait to learn more about her. I couldn’t wait to see how things ended.

Eleanor Oliphant is Just Fine. Eleanor Oliphant was such a good read—so full of humor, humanity at it’s worst and best, and the affect both of those opposites has on an individual! What an awesome novel! I could not stop reading!

Quirky and compelling. While the topic and life events of this character are dark and disturbing, the author finds a way to bring hope and light to her life. Eleanor is quirky and yet so likable, with the reasons for her mannerisms slowly revealed. This story is compelling and kept me engaged throughout. It also left me thoughtful about the humanity around us and that everyone has a story and no one should have to travel their journey alone.

Odd.. but rewarding. I have to be honest, I found myself cringing with second hand embarrassment for the first part of the book. I was close to quitting, it made me feel so uncomfortable. I do NOT understand anyone who finds this funny. It was clear from the get go that something was WRONG. She isn’t just the way she is. The way bits and pieces revealed themselves about her past and her family, that kept me engaged. The second half of the book is a phenomenal and raw look at the rock bottom feeling of declining mental health. As someone who has struggled myself, it was heartbreakingly accurate. The novel unfolded into this beautiful journey of self discovery and recovery. I was pleasantly surprised and deeply moved. I felt the warmth and love grow for Eleanor. She transformed.. and so did my opinion of this book.

Loved this book!. I absolutely love this character!!!

A book about loneliness for lonely people. I loved my journey through this book and it comforted me in dark times. What more can you ask for in a novel?

Amazing read. Heartbreaking, heart mending, heart holding. The book takes you on a ride you don’t expect with a happy ending that’s very necessary.

Holy Cow. I loved this book from cover to cover. It ended too soon. I wish we could have known more of Eleanors triumph over tragedy. But nonetheless this was a page turner that I couldn’t put down!

Eleanor is Completely Fine. Slow at first (for me) but was captivated by Eleanor and makes me want to make some life changes. Loved it and would recommend!

Loved!!. Touching, heartbreaking, funny, triumphant . I enjoyed every second of it!

Everyone should read this !!. It only takes one person to make a change. A simple smile is worth more than you know! Thank you for opening my eyes Eleanor !! Hilarious, sad, suspenseful , love ...this book covered it all for me!

Interesting. A story about trust and healing.

Horrifyingly phenomenal. Extremely well written, a few laughs here and there, amazing. A must read

A great work of personal discovery. The author causes Eleanor to speak with extreme clarity and with proper sentence structure. The character of Eleanor is developed by giving glimpses into her past but not giving away the plot to quickly. She encounters people who surprise her by accepting her just as she is. The therapist does a brilliant work of carefully and carefully guiding Eleanor to health. It is difficult to put down the book once started

Quirky Eleanor. I love quirky characters. I love surprise stories of redemption. I appreciate the backwards sequence of the backstory that helps the reader understand Eleanor.

I loved it. If you’re a survivor, in any capacity, I urge you to read this! And if you’re lucky enough that you’re not a survivor, you should read it too. Eleanors life is funny, quirky, tragic and riddled with trauma. Following her through healing and self discovery was truly inspiring.

Painful, funny, fascinating, tragic, hopeful. Extraordinary

Great Book!. I couldn’t put this book down. It was charming

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. I loved this book. I can state all the cliches: I laughed. I cried. I couldn’t put it down.

Very draggy. Interesting twists. Took me a long time to read. But I like stories that move quickly, this does not. Most of the reviews are positive, well deserved. Just not for me. Well rounded characters.

Hilariously tragic. I loved this book! I loved the vocabulary, the characters, that hope springs eternal!

Excellent. Very smartly written and deeply honest. Explores many critical issues regarding mental health that need to be out in the open. And also dine with a great sense of humor!

Not as described. The way I perceived this book, I would have thought light hearted... Some bits of this are very hard to read they are so depressing.

What a lovely, heartbreaking, funny, poignant story. I will read this again!. So many reminders for the readers to be grateful for the small things in life that we take for granted. I laughed, I cried and I was filled with warmth and hope.

Heartwarming. Eleanor’s character is extremely odd, and not at first appealing. However, seeing her come into her own, and the friendships she forms, it’s so very heartwarming.

Wonderful read. I loved this book. It was well written and touchingly funny and tragic at the same time. I actually was a bit sad to have finished it since I loved all the main characters so much. This is one to recommend to friends.
