So, I picked this book up for the first time a year or more ago. I didn't get very far. She starts off gushing about how much she'd like this hot, young Italian guy to kiss her ... but no she doesn't ... but it would be nice ... I wasn't ready for this to become a theme.

As it turns out, I was very preemptive in assessing the book. I had to take the time to step inside the author's experience, and I really began to empathize with her. She explores the human experience in a very natural way, that

I thought this author wrote very well and was able to communicate her distress at learning at such a late age that she really didn't want children or the life she was leading ---she felt guilty that she had gone along with the expectation of her husband that they would have a familoy and enjoy together a lovely large home and typical suburban lifestyle. Because of this insight into her true feelings the marriage crumbled. The story gets a little tedious to follow at times but overall I found it ...more

Inspired by her way of leading a thoughtful life. Overall, the story is attractive, even though some times it can be hard to follow. This book canna provide a option on how women could lead their life. Instead of letting housework and marriage issue confine us for most of the time, women can feel the world through their unique interpretation.
Eat, Pray, Love : this could be a solid second in my life only to Beachcombing for a Shipwrecked God by Joe Coomer!!

Every now and then, a book enters the life of a reader at just the right time. The reader may be going through something, may have just made a decision, may have decided on a career change, or just need the voice of strength and encouragement. This was my experience with this book which is why, no doubt, I instantly fell in love with the book (and movie.) I openly admit that I hav

Despite all the reviews, I never picked up this book before the autumn of this year (2012) because I thought it was another grocery store romance. But after a good friend recommended it, I decided to give in and at least read the first chapter. Perhaps it was a time/place novel that aligned perfectly but Eat Pray Live ticked all the "what am I doing with my life" boxes and gave me a new, reinvigorated zest for life and love. Not a deep, academic read but a great read for a little inspiration. 5 ...more

Shelves: memoirs
The author is witty, intelligent & has enough money to spend a year abroad. She goes through a painful divorce and then a love affair that doesn't work out; so spends a year in search of God, spirituality and real meaning for her life. She spends 4 months in Italy, 4 months in India & 4 months in Indonesia. One of the most down-to-earth books, written especially for a woman, that I have ever read.

Shelves: fiction, horrible
So self-indulgent, what a selfish person. She is so unhappy as she lies on her floor and cries, then divorces her husband and goes on a quest to find herself. I could not believe the reviews for this book, and the silliness of 40+ age women following in her path. Don't they know that "wherever you, there you are"?

This was a wildly disappointing book. It lacks anything of real substance. The religious "views" are vague and noncommittal, but all other opinions are very liberal and expressed with zealous self-righteousness.

Amazing Read. Elizabeth speaks honestly from the bottom of her heart. She certainly ahs a lot to say since she has travelled a distance. Loved her.

The book renews beliefs of God and Goodness being internal part of us - dont search for happiness outside but search for it inside...pretty simple philosophy actually.

Loved the book and the authors journey to return to herself again ... It gave a positive look on life and how you have to face it with faith in God ... Life moves on :)
