Description

Costa First Novel Book Award winner 2017 - The Sunday Times best seller - AudioFile Magazine Earphones Award Winner

Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon.

Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive - but not how to live.

Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend.

Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything.

One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world that everyone else seems to take for granted - while searching for the courage to face the dark corners she's avoided all her life.

Change can be good. Change can be bad. But surely any change is better than...fine?

This audiobook contains an exclusive interview with author Gail Honeyman and narrator Cathleen McCarron.

Funny and heartbreaking in equal measure

Loved the narration and loved the wry sense of humour employed throughout. Didn’t think this was my kind of novel but I was very pleasantly surprised. Recommended!

trivial

predictable, sometimes even boring, nothing special really.. you get a bit attached to the character, but it quickly becomes repetitive. the narrator's voice is however amazing, the only thing that kept me listening I guess

Génial !

Énorme surprise que ce livre ! Au départ, on ne sait pas à quoi s'attendre et, au fil des pages (accrochez-vous, ça vaut le coup), on découvre un nid d'émotions et de surprises auxquels on ne s'attendait pas. Sans trop en dire, ce livre parle de sujets durs de façon légère, ce livre parle d'un problème de société très prononcé, ce livre nous plonge au coeur de l'humain. J'en fus très surprise et très émue, et je ne peux que le recommander.
Je n'en is pas plus pour ne pas spoiler : il est important de découvrir par soi-même. Bonne lecture !

Sweet , sad but mostly sweet and funny.

Great book. One of the best I' ve read for ages. About loneliness, bad people, good people and dealing with a terrible past.

Outstanding

An incredible book - funny, heartwarming, sad and extremely compelling.

Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys a different type of novel that builds and slowly gives you insights into the main character. Fabulous !

I’ll miss Eleanor

This book is one of the books that you’ll carry with you for a long time. It’s funny, dark, sad and heartwarming. The characters are incredible and the voiceover is perfect. I’m now waiting not so patiently for Gail to write her next book!

Any additional comments?

I loved this book with my whole heart. Maybe because in many ways I identifield with Eleanor Oliphant. I understood her and empathized with her. Yes, she made me cringe a little from time to time, but she was an extraordinary well-written character with an amazing journey of self-actualization. This was a triumphant debut by Gail Honeyman and I can't wait to see what she writes next.

Excellent- the pace of the story unfolding, the plot, the humour, the treatment of serious issues, the character development, the narration!!! One of the best, if not the best book I’ve read in a while!

Eleanor my favourite character of 2017

Eleanor just might be my favourite character of 2017. What a story with a little twist and the end. If possible and you are into audiobooks this is the way to go. The narrator is a perfect Eleanor. Kathleen McCarron does a fine piece of work with this book. Gail Honeyman has written a unique book that captures the heart and draws the reader in. Excellent.

Funny and tragic

What made the experience of listening to Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine the most enjoyable?

The narrator skilfully carries the story without over characterisation. The story is carried with a lightness and humour that is so hard to deliver when that story is filled with human pain and suffering.

What does Cathleen McCarron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Maybe the warmth of the characters. The slight accent emphasised the context.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both! Lots of laughs, lots of warmth and compassion.

Any additional comments?

Loved this story. A rare find.

Großartige Charakterzeichnung

Die Geschichte beginnt als Tragikkomödie, als Elenor Oliphant durch das Abenteuer strauchelt, das die meisten von uns unter „Alltag“ verbuchen würden. Doch für Elenor, deren Existenz von extremer Routine geprägt ist, ist selbst die kleinste Spontanität eine große Herausforderung. Mit ihrer ganz eigenen Logik kommentiert sie ihre Erlebnisse.
Doch nach und nach zeichnet sich ab, warum Elenor so tickt wie sie tickt uns es entblättert sich ein Drama um ein schweres Kindheitstrauma.

Zäher Anfang, berührende 2. Hälfte

Am Anfang ist die Geschichte sehr negativ und es fällt mir schwer, sich mit der Protagonistin zu identifizieren. Erst in der zweiten Hälfte wird sie greifbarer und die Geschichte beginnt, mich zu berühren. Dann kann ich das Hörbuch kaum mehr weglegen.

No expectations

... and it turned out to be one of the most touching, enthralling and funny books I’ve ever read/heard. I loved it and I didn’t want it to end. Beautifully written! Can’t wait for Miss Honeyman‘s next book.

Intriguing

For the first two hours I was slightly annoyed by the main character and not sure if I would finish it but at the end I came to love her and was intrigued by the increasingly immersive story. The readers voice suits the character very well!

Such a sweet story that evolves

It's an interesting way to write a story, you learn more about Eleanor at the same pace as she does, so it starts out with this strange, Kind og funny girl, then you learn bits and bits more about her.... A really sweet, moving story.
