Audio Book Summary


A Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick

“Beautifully written and incredibly funny, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is about the importance of friendship and human connection. I fell in love with Eleanor, an eccentric and regimented loner whose life beautifully unfolds after a chance encounter with a stranger; I think you will fall in love, too!” —Reese Witherspoon

No one’s ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine. 

Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. 

But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.

Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . .
The only way to survive is to open your heart.

    Slow start, then very enjoyable! Excellent narration. Definitely worth that kind of missing the book now that it’s over. Give it a try.

    Loved this story. Ended a little too quickly but can't wait for the sequel ( hint, hint). The Scottish accent was beautiful to listen to and easy to understand. Brilliant!

    At first it was slow, but after you get a sense of Eleanor's quirky personality and feel almost sorry for her. More things are revealed in the story and you can't help but to like her more and more. You later on discover more about her life and empathize with her. The narrator does such a great job with the characters! Thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    I wish I could express my admiration for this book, with half the eloquence with which it was written. By turn savage, heartbreaking, chilling, and then uplifting in its portraits of we humans, in our kindness and cruelty. Some heroes wear baggy jeans and trainers, and I thank God for them. The surprise at the end took me aback, but no spoilers. This book is beautifully suited to the audiobook format.

    This was very well written although a difficult subject. I thought the narration was excellent after I adjusted to the dialect. I wish there were more Raymonds in the world.
