The Mod Woman September Book Club Pick
Hellloooo fall! And three-day weekend!! It's nearly September and fall is knocking on our door. I'm excited as hell about it because this summer has been a real bust for me. With the beginning of a new month comes a new The Mod Woman Book Club Pick. September's book of choice is Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.
Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.
But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic 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 kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.
Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fineis the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . .
Enjoy the three day weekend here in the US and happy reading!
