Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeymoon

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman – 5/5⭐️

I can see the hype with this book, It was pretty adorable while also being entertaining. While also touching on a number of topics that are quite heavy. I don’t want to give too much away but this has the feel of a light book with some heavy aspects. To be honest, I didn’t have a clue what it was about before reading it and I was a little surprised. But that being said, I didn’t find this book tough to read or difficult. I felt for Eleanor and was invested in her journey and really cared for her character. Her quirkiness grew on me the more her character developed. I also loved the supporting characters the author created and was so glad Raymond was Eleanor’s pal. I can see why there is an Eleanor Oliphant day because I was rooting for this character and seeing her as a mental health advocate. This was a touching, yet humorous book, and a great reminder to treat all you meet with kindness and respect because you truly don’t know their history and what they may have went through or are going through. Bravo to Gail Honeyman for this one.

I’m going to leave a little list of a few sensitive topics touched in this novel and take a moment to remind every that mental health is so important and I support anyone going through anything & am here as a friend. The author also did a great job to portray the importance of therapy and I loved that.

Stop reading for my sensitive topic list if you don’t want to know.

I’m referring to child abuse, extreme parent neglect, murder of a child, suicide attempt, as well as traumatic events that lead to serious mental health conditions.
