What a beautiful book this is!! It has been some time that I got so lost in pages and pages of ingeniously written prose like this one.

Sentence after sentence so well put together that you feel like licking them off the paper they are written onto.

The characters, in part humorous in their narrative, in part sad and all-encompassing, are extremely-well thought through and grow on you as you journey through this festival of story-telling.

I was most intrigued by the complex past of the intelligent, highly-critical and socially-challenged protagonist that unfolds itself in bite-site chunks and keeps you glued to the pages all the way to the last sentence and keeps you pondering on people and life for a long time.

With Eleanor Oliphant, Honeyman has created a character that is both impossible and endearing at the same time – a wonderful companion over the last weeks.

It’s sad that this book had to end.
