He way to repair her own profoundly damaged one If she does she'll learn that she too is capable of finding friendship and even love after allSmart warm uplifting Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the 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 hea As you can deduce from the title Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine Or so she thinks But by most people’s standards I’d say notWhen you first meet her it’s hard not to feel overwhelmingly sad for Eleanor Maybe even to pity her a bit Eleanor is simply existing in a lonely and somber life without friends or family And let’s be honest at times her bluntness is sort of off puttingEleanor is just fine living by her own self imposed routine The hour long lunch spent with the same sandwich and the daily crossword puzzle The nightly pesto dinner recipe The Friday treat of frozen pizza and wine And the vodka lots and lots of vodka—her coping mechanism for the long and lonesome weekendsThe epitome of socially awkward Eleanor is oblivious to social cues and norms uninhibited by a filter uite literal and extremely frugal At thirty she’s set with her one and only job—no ambition for anything better or challenging on the horizonLaying eyes on “husband material” sparks her desire for a metamorphosis of sorts She figures landing her soulmate is going to reuire some work—new hair clothes and maybe even a little makeup to hide her facial scarring After all being with a musician reuires a certain poise There are scars on my heart just as thick as disfiguring as those on my face I know they're there I hope some undamaged tissue remains a patch through with love can come in and flow out I hope It’s actually a happenstance run in with one of her coworkers and the ensuing friendship that inspires the most change in Eleanor—her outlook on life and interactions with people It’s comical that Raymond doesn’t seem fazed by Eleanor’s stunted social skills In fact his mellow attitude and companionship go a long way to smooth her edgesWhen things don’t go to plan Eleanor is forced to stare down her truth To succumb to the reality that everyone has problems and no feeling is insurmountable That eventually with time—not vodka—things will get better It's the why behind it all that broke my heart Gail Honeyman balances the heavy—and there’s a lot here so be prepared—with humor and hope; taking readers on a journey right along with Eleanor My own feelings skewing from odd to charmed uirky Eleanor managed to chip off a piece of my heart stowing it away in her trusty shopper for safekeeping With a pair of pom poms in hand I stood on the sidelines cheering Eleanor on as she discovered what life is truly about— living Connecting with others Taking those much needed pauses to drink in her surroundings And the potential for in each and every aspect of life From broken soul to a woman on a mission to live life Eleanor's is an inspiring story one I know I’m better for reading And naturally the part that sueezed the awww out of me—the healing powers of Glen ^^
