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.

"I adored it. Skilled, perceptive, Eleanor's world will feel familiar to you from the very first page. An outstanding debut!" (Joanna Cannon)

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 !

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!

Read it!

The premise of the book (a functional introvert loner) didn't last long. Yet the entire book is well built and the reader does a wonderful job making all of the characters evolve and be loveable. I am not a native English speaker, but appreciated the different accents and tones used by the reader.

Very talented reader, disturbing story

The reader is very good and has impressive reading skills. The story and main character are interesting but also disturbing. After about a third of the book I read the plot on the internet to decide if I continue with the book and have decided against it. I can imagine that many people will like the book though.

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

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!

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!

A new favorite!

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.

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.

Beautifully written and beautifully narrated. A story that refuses to go away, unfolding carefully and gently, optimistic despite the horror.

Praises not exagerated

So much has been said about this book and it has been praised by so many. None of the praises have been exaggerated. The book exceeded all my expectations. It is both refreshingly light and at the same time deeply moving. The author’s timing of events and thoughts are absolutely perfect. She created beautiful characters that the reader falls in live with. The journey with Eleanor seems to be over too soon. Also: The narrator was the best ever!! Beautiful voice and wonderful articulation.

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. Die Geschich

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.

I greatly enjoyed this book, however disturbing some of the passages are. A sad yet very realistic depiction of what childhood trauma can look like.

Interesting story

Loved it, fast read! Eleanor Oliphant ist different from a lot of characters and in the beginning that might be a bit hard on your patience, because she is akward, but in the end I'll totally rooted for her. This is a story about finding your place in the world and about friendship and about accepting your past.

Was ok

Eleanor is an interesting character regardless of whether you like her or not. However, in the end I didn't get what was the point of the book exactly. It seemed to me as if it was told for the sake of telling it. Nothing more.

Worth every penny and time..

Childlike innocence , grim veracity of loneliness, power of friendship and such polite honest non sarcastic remarks, all subsumed into one book. Though fiction by nature, this book touches upon adulthood in such a way that it will resonate with the reader. Eleanor's honesty is refreshing and heart wrenching at the same time. Her struggle in life might make you pity her but make no mistake, she is completely fine and is a phoenix nonetheless. A few lines that made me burst out laughing, As Eleanor said , "I don't want to accept a drink from you, because then I would be obliged to purchase one for you in return, and I'm afraid I'm simply not interested in spending two drinks' worth of time with you."
