Where do I start? I loved this book so much. At the beginning of the book the main character lives a very boring, solitary life ruled by routine and isolation. Then she meets a succession of people who through their kindness unknowingly show her how to be in the world as she had mostly abusive relationships. Whilst the first half of the book had me laughing out loud like a fool at Eleanor's social commentary, the second half dealt with her past traumas so less chuckles were had but it didn't matter. I feel like I could write an essay on what this book is about but the short answer is social isolation/loneliness/kindness/community etc. This one will stay with me for a long time.

This audiobook contains valuable advice for improving your life in a really succinct and actionable way. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's narrated by the author who has a lovely English accent and was a pleasure to listen to.

Very informative book for those looking for weight loss and lifestyle change though if you've read similar books you may find the level of detail excruciating. I found the narrator's accent slightly irritating though and he mispronounced some words but was otherwise entertaining.

I couldn't get through this audiobook, it was 99% waffling and self promotion with very little actual content. The narrator was excellent though.

A story that shows the devastating consequences of ignorance in a 19th century Irish valley. The narrator was excellent, very entertaining.
