I'm not finished yet, but am loving the writer's style and voice. It makes me wonder if getting on a jetplane and traveling to opposite ends of the world could truly help me find happiness.

Susan The audio edition is fantastic because it is her own voice and it's soothing to hear.

Amanda I think that Gilbert got on the plane with a plan and some ideas about why she was going to these three places. It wasn't necessarily about finding happiness, I felt it was more adjusting to the unexpected directions her life had taken.

Since you aren't done yet, I won't say too much, but I found the first section to be the most satisfying. India was interesting but by Indonesia I was wishing someone would sit Gilbert down and say, "Liz, darling, not so much self-congratulation, please."


Jeannette I saw a talk she gave about this book on the internet. It was interesting to see her mannerisms. She has a lot of nervous and tense energy and it helped explain her constantly changing life. She cannot stand or be still and peaceful, though she had a lot of interesting observations. She also said she was getting married again, which sort of surprised me.

I am at the end of the India section now and I find myself asking how long I would last washing floors in an ashram. Not long. I think it would be more interesting to explore the art and culture of a new country. I imagine she would see more of God's intention there.
