Free read Ì Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ¾ Η Έλενορ Όλιφαντ είναι τριάντα χρονών ζει στη Γλασκώβη και δουλεύει ως λογίστρια σε μια εταιρεία γραφιστικής Κάθε μέρα πς να έχει υπάρξει η παραμικρή υπόνοια– πως είναι ο άντρας της ζωής της Μόνο ένας συνάδελφός της ο Ρέιμοντ της φέρεται πολύ καλά –σε αντίθεση με τις αποστάσεις που κρατούν οι υπόλοιποι Τι κρύβεται άραγε πίσω από τον αλλόκοτο και δύστροπο χαρακτήρα της Έλενο?. I’m really surprised that I mostly enjoyed this in the end The plot itself is a somewhat dull slice of life but the titular character really picks up the slack Eleanor Oliphant is a good example of a well written unlikeable character She is aloof judgemental uncomfortably awkward and I hated her until I didn’t Have some bullet points This is a story about loneliness which definitely hits hard during the current lockdownpandemic where many of us are forced to be isolated in one way or another Would I recommend reading it right this second Depends on if you want to lay awake at 2AM thinking about how few people you've spoken to in person for the past nine months I’m glad there was an emphasis placed on friendship between Eleanor and Raymond because I was afraid up until the very last second that the author was going to throw in a completely unnecessary romance and ruin their whole thing I'm really all for stories where people get out of their comfort zones try new things That's a pretty minor part of everything that happens but it was fun to read about nonetheless I have some mixed feelings about the way the book shifts tone throughout The first 35% or so operates as a lighthearted “uirky” contemporary before hurtling headfirst into the heavy shit There were some elements of Eleanor’s past trauma present mental health that I felt weren’t handled carefully it sometimes seemed that Gail Honeyman just wanted to pile it on her character without adeuately figuring how to conclude everything correctly so she just dropped talking about some of the stuff that she didn’t want to deal with writing oh also cw depression alcoholism ptsd murder of a child emotionalphysical abuse rape attempted suicide I’m irked by the fact that this author had Eleanor become likeable partially through her appearance It’s literally like one giant rom com makeover scene where the uncool nerd takes her glasses off only for people to realize she’s been pretty the whole time There’s a difference to me between self care and how Eleanor’s moves towards looking conventionally attractive make people suddenly care for her companyIn the end this book had some heart and was weirdly comforting to read despite my above issues But I don't think I would agree with the overwhelming adoration it receives just like I think that the story is 'completely fine' in the same way that Eleanor Oliphant is or rather is not

? και περιμένει να έρθει η Παρασκευή για να φάει πίτσα και να μεθύσει με βότκα μέχρι το πρωί της ΔευτέραςΕίναι τελείως μόνη αλλά δηλώνει απολύτως καλάΏσπου μια μέρα ερωτεύεται έναν τραγουδιστή και αρχίζει να φαντασιώνεται –χωρίς να έχουν καν γνωριστεί χωρί. 45 What an incredible story “These days loneliness is the new cancer a shameful embarrassing thing brought upon yourself in some obscure way A fearful incurable thing so horrifying that you dare not mention it; other people don’t want to hear the word spoken aloud for fear that they might too be afflicted” Eleanor’s story hit me so much harder than I expected it to She is thirty years old has worked at the same job since she left university speaks on the phone to mummy once a week and drinks two litres of vodka every weekend Eleanor Oliphant is fine One day Eleanor and a colleague help assist an elderly man who’d fallen over on the street From there we follow Eleanor and Raymond’s budding friendship and we realise just how ‘not fine’ Eleanor truly is “I’d tried so hard but something about me just didn’t fit There was it seemed no Eleanor shaped social hole for me to slot into” Eleanor is painfully relatable her awkwardness at social encounters reliance on alcohol and the burying of all feelings and past grievances is something I feel on a personal level It’s as if her story came to me at just the right time in my life It was heartbreaking honest and powerful “I was thirty years old I realised and I had never walked hand in hand with anyone No one had ever rubbed my tired shoulders or stroked my face” All of us have felt alone at some point in our lives Eleanor’s story serves as a reminder that we are a lot alike than we realise A bit of kindness can go such a long way friendship can truly be life saving

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely FineΗ Έλενορ Όλιφαντ είναι τριάντα χρονών ζει στη Γλασκώβη και δουλεύει ως λογίστρια σε μια εταιρεία γραφιστικής Κάθε μέρα πηγαίνει στη δουλειά της τα βράδια λύνει σταυρόλεξα και ακούει ραδιοφωνικές σαπουνόπερες τις Τετάρτες μιλάει τηλεφωνικά με τη μητέρα τη?. 5 Stars“Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine” but after finishing this novel I am not I was completely unprepared for the life of Eleanor Oliphant and that of her ‘Mummy” To be frank I was ill euipped to deal with it much like Eleanor And it wrecked me At thirty years old Eleanor Oliphant is alone in this world She always has been actually In and out of foster care since she was a little girl she has never been touched by anyone in a loving way and doesn’t even know what that would feel like but that’s ok All of her physical needs are met you see and she has never had any emotional needs Seeing as she doesn’t have any friends Eleanor is uiet and socially awkward Everyone thinks she is fairly strange if you must to know Not that she minds since people’s behavior makes absolutely no sense to her She is good at being alone and she does not feel sorry for herself Not even when ‘Mummy’ calls and viciously tells her daughter off and berates her for being being “naughty” Eleanor however wears a coat of armor and does her best to let her mother’s words bounce off of her Eleanor has no aspirations though she has done accounting at an office for the last 9 years Every day of her life is the same and she would be nothing without routine One night all of that changes rather abruptly After work she and a coworker named Raymond whom she just met and who happens to be leaving the office at the same time as her find themselves in the exact right place at the right time Both Eleanor and Raymond see a man named Samuel go down on the sidewalk and they go have a look see and discover that he needs an ambulance This incident ends up tying the three together and becomes one of the most significant in Eleanor Oliphant’s life It forges a bond of friendship between them which is something Eleanor has never experienced before in all her thirty years During this time Eleanor also ends up finding him The man she has been waiting for all of her life The man she is meant to be with Now she just has to get him to notice her In trying to do so Eleanor grows bolder and confident She also learns to lean on and open herself up to her new friendsThroughout the book Eleanor slowly experiences a metamorphosis one that often makes you smile laugh and of course cry She is damaged and uirky but oh so special I loved her dearly For reasons than one I identified with Eleanor Oliphant you see and for that I was unprepared I did say that this book wrecked me right I get why Eleanor is Completely Fine She had no choice Unfortunately Eleanor’s ‘Mummy’ is someone I recognized fairly well When I heard her voice in a Scottish accent on the audiobook and the way she spoke to her daughter my chest got tight and my throat closed up and I sobbed Unlike Eleanor's “Mummy” however mine happens to be British instead of Scottish though the accents are close thus I therefore guess that listening to the audiobook had an even profound effect on me I’ve had similar conversations in case it wasn’t obvious and I felt Eleanor’s pain deeply as it related to her ‘Mummy’ for at certain times in my life it mirrored my own All that aside however Eleanor does not go uietly into the dark goodnight and neither did I for what it’s worth Though it affected me greatly “Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine” is without a doubt one of the most incredible profound and beautifully well written novels I have absorbed in ages It wrecked me in the best and worst ways possible In case it’s not obvious it will stay with me for a long time I think I came across it on purpose as both Eleanor Oliphant and I needed something from it and I think we were both lucky enough to receive it Published on Goodreads and on 62617
