Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

My rating: 4.6

Eleanor is socially inept and tends to say exactly what she is thinking and doesn't realize why people react the way they do. Eleanor meets Raymond, her bumbling oafish IT guy from work. Together, Eleanor and Raymond save Sammy, an elderly gentleman that falls on the sidewalk and the lives of the three unlikely friends progress from there.

This had me laughing at this description of high heel shoes: "Why are these people so keen on crippling their female customers.  Are chiros and cobblers establishing some fiendish cartel?" It is also very dark at other times. I listed to the audio version and it was absolutely priceless. I can see why this is being compared to A Man Called Ove.
