My score: 4 of 5 stars

Eleanor Oliphant Is Fully Fantastic is a recent story with a powerful psychological well being theme.

Eleanor is an accounts administrator in a small graphic design firm. She is environment friendly and does her job properly, however her life is a lonely one with no pals.

When laptop technician Raymond provides a tentative hand of friendship, Eleanor surprises herself by accepting. This coincides along with her infatuation for a musician – abruptly her life is altering.

I’m extraordinarily late attending to this ebook which was first printed in 2017. It jogged my memory of different psychological well being books like The Rosie Undertaking and Elizabeth Is Lacking. Loneliness is usually missed or misinterpreted and people are hard-wired to need companionship in some kind or different, be it with different people or animals.

I loved this story and the unravelling of Eleanor’s inside psyche, and the thriller surrounding her. I’m glad that Raymond selected to face by her, whereas the result was stuffed with hope and prospects – an excellent place to finish.
