This is a rare page-turner novel that sometimes kept me in suspense, but wholly captured my heart. Eleanor Oliphant is an utterly relatable character, even in her most extreme moments. Author Gail Honeyman manages to talk about very dark and serious subjects—child abuse and the growing epidemic of loneliness—in ways that don't bring you down but instead are highlighted with appropriate humor. The character development and Eleanor's journey are superbly and expertly fleshed out, and in the end, there was a twist I really didn't see coming, something that isn't easy to pull off with me. I highly recommend this book.
