Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine (Large Print / Paperback)
I'm sure every single person on the planet has already reviewed this book, but I needed to add my own 2 cents in. This was given to me by a customer at work, because when I told her I hadn't read it yet she whipped it out of her bag and said "I just finished, take it and pass it on." So, I'm now a part of the sisterhood of the travelling book, and I add this thing to my TBR pile and wait like six months, as one does. When I first started, I wasn't immediately enthralled. I found Eleanor to be an annoying character to read, and since I wasn't thrilled in the first 20 pages my immediate reaction was "I guess this book was way over-hyped." I'm not going to go into details, but I just want anyone who is unsure about this book to know I was very, very wrong, and I'm incredibly glad I kept going. Thank you, mysterious customer, I hope you find many more fantastic books.— Katherine N., bookseller

“Eleanor Oliphant has quickly become one of my favorite fictional characters, and this novel one of my favorite books. Eleanor is completely original and the right kind of weird. Her life and her past, combined with such kindhearted characters, made for a compulsively readable, heartwarming story that I did not want to put down. I can't wait for this book to come out so many more can fall in love with Eleanor. Highly, highly recommended.”
