A re-read for me. Just love the descriptions of the landscape and people, Edison puts you right there. Beautifully constructed characters and interesting relationship between Swanson and Sister Agnes, amazingly crafted story. One of my all time favourites.

I couldn‘t quite make this a pick...very interested to read this as it‘s set where I live and did enjoy reading about familiar places in a fictitious sense. However, typos annoyed me and I found it too predictable. Easy read.

TheAliceEvers Cool review!!! Thank you for also letting me read it too! 😊❤️ 12mo

Told to read this by @TheAliceEvers it was an interesting reversal of male/female dominance. Oddly I found it more shocking to read of women raping and otherwise abusing/removing rights of men, yet things described happen in reverse today!

TheAliceEvers So happy you found it interesting! And great review! I agree! ❤️ 13mo

Enjoyed this immensely. Despite her quirkiness, Eleanor Oliphant is a likeable protagonist. It flows well, revealing just enough at just the right moment. I couldn‘t put it down. Apparently Reece Witherspoon has picked up the rights to it...I hope when it‘s made that they keep the setting in Scotland, it somehow just feels right. Do yourself a favour and read this, please.

TheAliceEvers Awesome review! 😍👏🏻 (edited) 1y

Should I worry that Father Christmas is trying to tell me something? Looking forward to some light festive reading.

As good as the reviews lead me to believe. Gently written even when the underlying feeling was of something darker. Lucy‘s observations are acute and truthful as told from the point of view of someone feeling insecure. I found the things left unsaid/not said tone difficult as someone who says what they mean - not to tell your child, whatever their age, in a direct and honest way that you love them? Pah! It‘s a quick read, beautifully written.
