Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

I started out not sure if I liked Eleanor at all but as the book progressed, she grew on me. She is socially inept and has an impressive vocabulary but is sheltered, oblivious, and judgmental about other’s rudeness which makes it hilarious. When she and her coworker Raymond help a fallen bystander on the street, Eleanor suddenly gets a social life and friends and starts to come out of her sheltered, solitary existence. Her past was a mystery that you want to unravel and you start rooting for her as her life seems to crumble around her as she starts working to make her life “normal.” This is a heartwarming book that is hard to put down.
