Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine [sound recording] / Gail Honeyman.

By: Honeyman, GailContributor(s): McCarron, CathleenPublication details: New York : Penguin Audio, p2017. Edition: UnabridgedDescription: 9 CDs (11 hrs.) : digital ; 12 cmISBN: 9781524749682Subject(s): Eccentrics and eccentricities -- Fiction | People with social disabilities -- Fiction | Geeks (Computer enthusiasts) -- Fiction | Older people -- Fiction | Social isolation -- Fiction | Friendship -- FictionRead by Cathleen McCarron.Summary: "Eleanor Oliphant is, well, a bit of an oddball--albeit a loveable one. She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she's thinking... and that, combined with her unusual appearance (scarred cheek, a tendency to wear the same clothes year after year), means that Eleanor has become a bit of a loner. But she thinks that nothing really important is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding perplexing social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, Glen's Vodka, and phone chats with 'Mummy.' But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and sweet IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kind of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. It's Raymond's big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repairing her own damaged one, as she realizes that the only way to survive in the real world is to open her life to friendship--and that there's always room there for love, too..."--From publisher.
