Such a generic comment...would be more helpful if you actually explain "why" you didn't like it.

J.M. Ney-Grimm Free! Because I'm finally creating the things I want to create, after decades of being stopped by inaccurate beliefs.

As for the book . . . well, I enjoyed it. I felt for the author in her initial difficulty. I rejoiced for her in the healing she described in India. (And her wish to be perceived as the silent, spiritual yogini quietly doing useful things in the background, followed by her assignment as "welcoming hostess," followed by other folks perceiving her as the quiet yogini doing useful things in the background, made me laugh.) But she seemed to lose her center again in Indonesia. I hope she found it after the close of the book.


Deborah Learning - love to learn..am always reading, talking to folks, trying things....learning.

Tara enigmatic


Kimberly Jackson My word? Hmmm! I have been thinking about that for a while now. I have to say "Phoenix" because it feels as if I am rising from the ashes of life and moving forward.

Deborah Now hopeful is a good word. It's amazing how a bit of hope can make you feel lighter :) and be more open to opportunities.

Ipek solitude.


Michele Harrod Shine. It's hard to describe, but it is how I feel most of the time, and how I see the world around me. Either shiny, or not.

Colleen Spanish word "quijotesco" it means quixotic. I used the SPanish word because I am studying Spanish and it basically sounds pretty.

This is my favoite word since it is based off the Spanish (Another reason for it being in spanish) fictional character Don Quixote. It means foolishly impractical, idealistic or fantastical. Unpredictable.

I think I am incredibly predictable, BUT I see myself as very idealistic and forever living in my imagination. Also what better way to acknowledge my love of books than use a word named for a character??

you need to read her follow up book Committed, it tells where she went in her life after and should be required reading for anyone thinking about marriage, just my thoughts and my word would be caregiver

Not necessarily. It opens up a lot of possibilities.

Thanks for the tip. I didn't know she'd written a follow-up. I'll check it out.

Marla I think my word would be "open." I saw the author as sort of flinging herself at new experiences, then trying to make sense of her reactions.

Rod  C. Cohen I liked this novel. Gilbert had problems dealing with Western consumerism, and that is admirable. There's much more to life than big bucks. Somehow her soul seems to have been damaged in the process and she sets out on a journey to find it. But, as a person, I feel she's lacking the quality her big sister has. Big sis is the type of person who'll organize a casserole for a family in the neighborhood if the mother is sick. In contrast, Gilbert's main occupation is finding her own happiness and, she explains, by being happy she makes the world a happier place. I liked the novel for it's honesty, for the writer putting herself out like that.

You don't have to explain "UGH" to me, I agree with you!


message 192: by Susan (new) - rated it 4 stars

Susan What question are people answering here?

The word that describes yourself? (as the Eat, Pray, Love author said every city had one word to describe it)

or

The word that describes your feeling toward the book?

We seem to be getting varying answers here, or else a lot of people don't think too highly of themselves.


message 193: by Jeanne (new) - rated it 4 stars

Jeanne Blake Change. I say that I want to be on an even keel, but then every time I turn around, I volunteer to change... usually in work, but in other areas also. Or it could be evolve. That might be even more to the point.

Marie Zhuikov In the story, the "word" was used to describe a geographic location. My girlfriend and I both decided the best word for our city was "Remote." It describes both the location and the attitude of the people in it.

Dyan Lee Narcissist. Whiner. Psychiatrist. Sucks. (any of those words fit the bill)
