Reviews

"A charmer. . . satisfyingly quirky."--Janet Maslin, The New York Times "This wacky, charming novel. . . draws you in with humor, then turns out to contain both a suspenseful subplot and a sweet romance. . . Hilarious and moving." --People "Eleanor Oliphant is a quirky loner and a model of efficiency with her routine of frozen pizza, vodka and weekly phone calls with Mummy. [She's] a woman beginning to heal from unimaginable tragedy, with a voice that is deadpan, heartbreaking and humorous all at once." -NPR.org "Simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking. . . Eleanor Oliphant may be completely fine, but this book is completely wonderful." --PureWow "Warm and funny. . . You'll want to read it."--TheSkimm "Eleanor Oliphant [is] the kind of book you'll want to devour in a single sitting." --Vox "Warm and uplifting." --POPSUGAR "Sweet and satisfying, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine will speak to introverts who have ever felt a little weird about their place in the world." --Bustle "Eleanor Oliphant is a truly original literary creation: funny, touching, and unpredictable. Her journey out of dark shadows is expertly woven and absolutely gripping." --Jojo Moyes, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You "[Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine] made me laugh, it made me cry, and the entire time I beamed with joy at the beauty of this story." -Krysten Ritter, actress, producer, and author of Bonfire "Move over, Ove (in Fredrik Backman's A Man Called Ove)--there's a new curmudgeon to love. . . Walking in Eleanor's practical black Velcro shoes is delightfully amusing. But readers will also be drawn in by her tragic backstory, which slowly reveals how she came to be so entirely Eleanor. Witty, charming, and heartwarming, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is a remarkable debut about a singular woman. Readers will cheer." --Booklist (starred review) "Astounding." --PopMatters "Eleanor Oliphant is endearing, [a] whip-smart read. . . a fascinating story about loneliness, hope, tragedy and humanity. Honeyman's delivery is wickedly good, and Eleanor won't leave you anytime soon." --Associated Press
"Honeyman's endearing debut is part comic novel, part emotional thriller, and part love story. . . hilarious, deadpan, and irresistible." --
