As some of you may already know, I’ve recently dived right into reading a lot of the Women’s Prize for Fiction books. I really want to read all of the shortlisted books this year, and although that list hasn’t yet been finalised, I’ve already started picking off some of the ones which have made the longlist. Prior to picking up this book I’d just finished reading Sarah Schmidt’s See What I Have Done. I thoroughly enjoyed this historical crime novel, as you can see from my review. Wanting to continue the train of great books I decided to next read what is probably the most hyped up book on the list this year; Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.
Everyone’s been raving about this book on Booktube and Instagram and everywhere in between. It’s made countless bestsellers lists, has won the 2017 Costa Book Awards and the rights to the film have already been bought by Reese Witherspoon. A lot to live up to then, but what is it really about?
