Overview

This beautifully written, heartfelt memoir touched a nerve among both readers and reviewers. Elizabeth Gilbert tells how she made the difficult choice to leave behind all the trappings of modern American success (marriage, house in the country, career) and find, instead, what she truly wanted from life. Setting out for a year to study three different aspects of her nature amid three different cultures, Gilbert explored the art of pleasure in Italy and the art of devotion in India, and then a balance between the two on the Indonesian island of Bali. By turns rapturous and rueful, this wise and funny author (whom Booklist calls "Anne Lamott’s hip, yoga- practicing, footloose younger sister") is poised to garner yet more adoring fans.

Vale la pena!

Este libro me hizo reír y llorar, también me inspiró. Ya veo en nuestra sociedad, faltamos la espiritualidad. Creo que nuestra generación está desilusionado con la religión típica, pero no hay nada para llenar este vacío. Elizabeth Gilbert es una típica mujer de nuestra generación. Tiene éxito en su profesión, pero tiene hambre para algo más. En sus viajes, despierta su parte espiritual y empieza tener una vida más rica. Creo que este libro hablará a muchas mujeres y vale la pena. (Perdona que español no es mi lengua materna!)

Buying a Ticket

I laughed and loved my way through this wonderful book. Elizabeth Gilbert has written a charming book in three parts: Eat, Pray, Love. You may have heard already but it's a great book. It's fun, easy and inspiring. I found that while I was reading, I was more enthused about my life. It was warm and lovely to experience the lustiness of Italy, the serenity of India and finally the sweetness of loving in Indonesia with this wonderful author. I love books that lift my spirit. I was on the very brink of buying a ticket to some exotic locale on the heels of this treasure. But even better, this is one of those books that invited me to find those joys in my everyday life. I recently read another book that does that lifting the spirit thing, too. It's called Being Here: Modern Day Tales of Enlightenment [ASIN:1888043180 Being Here: Modern Day Tales of Enlightenment)] by Ariel and Shya Kane. Enliven yourself, your day and your life by reading both of these books.

Amazed, surprised by bad reviews

Everyone I know has loved this book, so I was shocked to read some of the truly hateful reviews. Each to her own I guess. I found her insights accurate and her personality endearing. Her writing was excellent and made her story come alive. I wanted to move to each of the places she described! Her take on spirituality was interesting to me as well as I've been searching for a non-religious way to be spiritual. I highly recommend this book, I couldn't put it down and learned alot from it.

A lovely, lovely find...

I heard this book discussed briefly earlier this year on the Today Show and decided to order it since, at the time, I was in the throws of my own divorce. Ms. Gilbert chronicles her international journey of self-discovery with such amazing detail and tenderness and humor that I recommend this book to anyone who has found him or herself in a place or state that he or she would like to change or leave (I imagine, that's everyone!). The story is engrossing and the writing is skillful. I couldn't put it down, and I feel more empowered to follow my own dreams and heart after finishing the book. That's 5-star material if I've ever seen it.

Highly entertaining

There is nothing I like better than to find a book that is so interesting that I don't want to put it down. Eat, Pray, Love was funny, well written and thought provoking. Elizabeth Gilbert has broadened my horizons by writing about places and experiences that most of us will never have. Her search for inner peace and balance takes her to Italy, India and Indonesia and she describes each experience with beautiful prose and great humor. This book will expose you to a variety of perspectives about life, love and religion...I am a better person for having read it.
