Eleanor Oliphant struggles with appropriate social skills, she tends to say exactly what it on her min and that doesn't go down well with many people. So Eleanor fills her timetable so she can avoid social situations. Her weekends include frozen pizza, vodka and long chats with her mother.

Eleanor Oliphant's whole life changes when she meets hygiene challenge, Raymond. Together they rescue an elderly gentleman names Sammy who had a fall on the street. Pretty soon the three become great friends and they rescue each other from a life of isolation. 

There was a huge hype around this book and usually, when everyone is raving about a book, I end up not enjoying it. (Flashbacks to Fifty Shades) This book, however, was a pleasant change. I like, everyone else really enjoyed it.

I found it easy to read and very well written with a fun and interesting plot. I struggle with anxiety and I struggle in social situations so I was able to relate to the characters which I always think is good with a book if you can relate to a character it makes you feel like your part of there world. It makes it much easier to connect with the story and the characters, making the book easier and more enjoyable to read and that is what happened here for me. A really good book. I really enjoyed it I would recommend this book to anyone looking for their next great read.
