When I picked up a copy of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine I knew I was in for a good read.
But I had no idea I would be putting my life on hold for an entire day so I could get to the bottom of the frustrating mystery that is Eleanor Oliphant.
You see, 30-year-old Eleanor Oliphant lives alone in a tiny Glasgow flat.
During the week she works as an accounts assistant at a small graphic design firm. Her colleagues think she’s odd and often loudly mock her in the staff room.
On the weekend she eats pizza and drinks vodka and aims to completely avoid humans.
Once a week she speaks to “Mummy” on the phone, who tells her she’s ugly and worthless and will never amount to anything.
