Three “Eleanors” ,I have met last month. Thank God.

Hi friends,

It may be only coincidence but name Eleanor, seems to be popping out everywhere around me.

.

Last month I read three books, with Eleanor being the lead protagonist.

.

I thought you will like to meet them too.

.

I researched a bit about the name and found that it means; something like torch or light. This name was very popular in Europe in start of 19 the century. This was name of powerful and royal ladies.

.

.

1.

I came face to face with it, when I read a romance story by Rainbow Rowell, last month and I personally did not like the book very much. Though I liked the name ” Eleanor”.

2.

Next came one of the superstar books of 2018, Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine” by Gail Honeyman.

It’s female protagonist is certainly more lovable than Rowell’s book and I liked this book and its narration. Simple and penetrating.

.

This also made me to think that if you are a female author and you add ‘man’ at end of your name, you can write a bestseller.

( Erroneous thinking, I knew later).

.

.

3.

Then I decided to read some comic. And still Eleanor will not leave me.

I read a very good educational graphic novel set in the background of world war 1 and it describes how bacillary dysentery cast havoc on injured soldiers.

This graphic novel named, ” The Invisible war” is too good to put down.

.

In it nurse and researcher sister Eleanor William does research on dysentery and helps in finding laboratory test for this dreaded disease.

.

So, friends in this short span I came to know three Eleanors, each uniquely powerful and charismatic.

.

Hope you also have tea with this Eleanors and spend few silent evening with these beautiful books.
