's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: narrative-nonfiction

I expected more of a travelogue about the places DeRuiter's been and what she's seen (and how many time she got lost) but this wasn't so much about travel as much of a candid memoir about the author's personal growth and marriage. The title "All over the Place" could also describe not only where she's traveled but also the broad range of emotions and struggles she has endured over the years.

DeRuiter is a marvelous and humorous writer and despite being a wee bit disappointed that I didn't get more travel stories (for that I could go to her blog), it was still a great read and I loved it.

Those who read Eat, Pray, Love and found it a little self-indulgent but kept reading for Gilbert's personal and world journeys should find this book a little more to their liking.

Thanks to Hachette for the print advance copy.
