Book review: Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

⭐ Goodreads ⭐ Amazon ⭐

Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine, except that she’s not fine at all.  The large scar on her face and her oddly developed social skills mean that she’s the butt of the joke for her gossipy coworkers.  She lives by herself, going entire weekends without human contact, downing bottle after bottle of vodka alone in her flat. Her one human connection is with her vicious Mummy, who contacts her once a week seemingly just to insult and berate her.
