3 good novels

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, 2018 by Gail Honeyman. Her first novel, very good Absorbing characters, and the tale is revealed slowly so very engaging story. Good book.

Transcription by Kate Atkinson, 2018. Main character is believable, interesting, jumps time periods, from 1940, to early 50s to 81. A sort of a spy novel but not really, more the story of Julie. Very good novel, love the way she follows Julie's train of thought, all the unsaid things.

The Tattooist of Auschwitz, 2018, by Heather Morris. Australian writer. Based on the true story of two Slovakian people, Lale and Gita, but the tale is Lale's. Really interesting book. The author and the son both write afterwords, also very interesting. She interviewed Lale for a long time before writing the book. Well worth reading
