Amazon Best Sellers of 2019 in Books #27,定格日期:2019年7月29日。

While Gail Honeyman was writing her debut novel, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, it was shortlisted for the Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize as a work in progress and won the 2018 Costa Debut Novel Award. It has subsequently sold to almost thirty territories worldwide, and it was chosen as one of the Observer’s Debuts of the Year for 2017.

Despite the title of the book, Eleanor Oliphant is not ‘completely fine’. She’s far from it. Eleanor doesn’t have a life, she has an existence – one that is small, routine and completely empty. She works all week, goes home on a Friday night, heats up a Tesco pizza, drinks two bottles of vodka - yes, two bottles! - and speaks to nobody until Monday morning comes round again.

A major theme of the book is loneliness. Eleanor is isolated and doesn’t really know what it is to have friends. There are many reasons for Eleanor’s isolation, all of which are gradually unpicked as the novel unfolds.

When she takes a tiny step outside of her comfort zone, everything starts to change. She develops a crush on a pop star which leads her to change her appearance to resemble “a human woman” to get his attention, and then rushes to the aid of an old man who has collapsed in the street, and in turn is befriended by a work colleague Raymond. Only as a result of all this, does she begin to understand how the world works, how to fit in and how to reach out to others.

Some of these interactions could feel familiar to some people, due to social anxiety, being on the autism spectrum, or for any number of other factors. It reminds the reader the importance of showing patience, empathy and love to people we come into contact with day to day as we never know their stories.
