Eleanor Oliphant is thirty years old and lives alone. With no friends and family around her and a difficult past she keeps under wraps, she is also rather prickly and judgemental. When she meets new IT help, Raymond, at her place of work the two strike up a rather unlikely friendship which leads to Eleanor questioning her ideas and opinions and giving her a glimpse of a normality she never had.
This really was a beautiful story of friendship and self-discovery. It was undoubtedly hard to read at times and I really became invested in Eleanor and Raymond as I devoured this book in one sitting.
Like many fans of this novel I felt bereft when I came to the end and would love to read more about Eleanor navigating life which seems to befuddle us all in differing degrees from time to time. Please say there will be a sequel!
