ELEANOR OLIPHANT.


I have just finished reading this book and Tom is currently reading it.

Image result for eleanor oliphant is completely fine

What a joy to find a book that doesn't have a murder, whisky drinking Inspector, or any of the other mundane usual things.
I get sick of looking for a book that is different and holds me, this one did the job.
I loved this book so much and even though it seems to be about nothing much there actually is so much to think about in it and it grips you to the end.

  1. You gave me a good laugh. I will go to amazon and look it up! Hopefully I won't have to wade through too many whiskey drinking inspectors...

  5. I enjoyed this one too.
    Have you read The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry? that's another thought provoking one, there is also a follow up to it.

    1. I shall see if my library has that one. I have'A man called Ove' waiting for me after the one I am currently reading, will let you know what it is like.
      I am reading 'the secret diary of hendrik groen' all about an old man in a care home, sounds morbid but is funny.

  6. I just sent for free sample pages of that book on my kindle app (on iPhone). Sounds interesting as I too get tired of murder and mayhem. I do read cozy mysteries that do involve murder, but it's never gory and the little towns and communities are interesting. Thanks for recommending it.

  7. I just put a "hold" on it in our local library. There is a queue.

  9. We read " Eleanor" for book club a while ago. Most people enjoyed it, including me. The Harold Fry book is definitely worth a read. I really enjoyed it.

  11. Not bad for a first novel was it? I understand that Reece Witherspoon bought the film rights to it but I don't think the film is in production yet.

  13. I enjoyed it too. Also the Harold Fry book and the follow up,The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy. I think that's what its called! If you have a look at a blog by Denise called Oh My Days, she is publishing her great book in instalments.It's a really good read and she publishes every Sunday. You won't be disappointed!
    Kindest regards,
    Maureen
