? και περιμένει να έρθει η Παρασκευή για να φάει πίτσα και να μεθύσει με βότκα μέχρι το πρωί της ΔευτέραςΕίναι τελείως μόνη αλλά δηλώνει απολύτως καλάΏσπου μια μέρα ερωτεύεται έναν τραγουδιστή και αρχίζει να φαντασιώνεται –χωρίς να έχουν καν γνωριστεί χωρί 45 What an incredible story “These days loneliness is the new cancer a shameful embarrassing thing brought upon yourself in some obscure way A fearful incurable thing so horrifying that you dare not mention it; other people don’t want to hear the word spoken aloud for fear that they might too be afflicted” Eleanor’s story hit me so much harder than I expected it to She is thirty years old has worked at the same job since she left university speaks on the phone to mummy once a week and drinks two litres of vodka every weekend Eleanor Oliphant is fine One day Eleanor and a colleague help assist an elderly man who’d fallen over on the street From there we follow Eleanor and Raymond’s budding friendship and we realise just how ‘not fine’ Eleanor truly is “I’d tried so hard but something about me just didn’t fit There was it seemed no Eleanor shaped social hole for me to slot into” Eleanor is painfully relatable her awkwardness at social encounters reliance on alcohol and the burying of all feelings and past grievances is something I feel on a personal level It’s as if her story came to me at just the right time in my life It was heartbreaking honest and powerful “I was thirty years old I realised and I had never walked hand in hand with anyone No one had ever rubbed my tired shoulders or stroked my face” All of us have felt alone at some point in our lives Eleanor’s story serves as a reminder that we are a lot alike than we realise A bit of kindness can go such a long way friendship can truly be life saving

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely FineΗ Έλενορ Όλιφαντ είναι τριάντα χρονών ζει στη Γλασκώβη και δουλεύει ως λογίστρια σε μια εταιρεία γραφιστικής Κάθε μέρα πηγαίνει στη δουλειά της τα βράδια λύνει σταυρόλεξα και ακούει ραδιοφωνικές σαπουνόπερες τις Τετάρτες μιλάει τηλεφωνικά με τη μητέρα τη? Eleanor Oliphant is completely 100% fine She goes to her office job five days a week and then treats herself to a frozen pizza and a bottle of vodka on a weekend She lives alone and doesn't have any friends but that's okay She's doing real well thank you very much Except maybe she isn't Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine caught me completely unawares I'll be honest I picked it up because it got some buzz and the author is British but it actually turned out to be one of those perfectly balanced sadfunny books Maybe like some combination of The Rosie Project Me Before You Finding Audrey and A Man Called Ove It takes a serious traumatic issue and weaves it into a warm funny and yes sometimes sad taleI read a lot of books and many characters come and go Some are well developed and interesting others less so But on a rare occasion I find one of those truly memorable characters that will stay with me a long time Eleanor is one of them She is socially clueless in a way that puts my teen self to shame She is literal to a degree that everyone finds odd It's painful to witness and yet so so endearingI think I like this book so much because it is actually really sad but never manipulative On a surface level it's a very funny novel about a socially inept twenty nine year old woman Her attempts to become normal and integrate into society by having manicures and waxes are sources of hilarity But it is very sad It's sad when we see her coworkers talking about her but Eleanor is oblivious to their scorn It's sad how alone in life she is It's sad when she falls in love with an idea of a personIt's not a romantic book and I'm glad There are hints that the central relationship will eventually develop into romance but this is really a book about Eleanor I am thankful that the author didn't cure Eleanor and lead her out of the darkness by having her fall in love Being happy and achieving greater self worth should in my opinion never be linked to romanceI really enjoyed it It's great to find a book so packed full of emotion without seeming overly sentimentalBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube
