Eat Pray Love – Elizabeth Gilbert


Elizabeth Gilbert is the author of a short story collection, Pilgrims (a finalist for the Pen/Hemmingway Award), a novel, Stern Men and a book of non fiction, The Last American Man (nominated for the National Book Award and a New York Times Notable Book for 2002). She is a writer-at-large for American GQ where she has received two National Magazine Award nominations for feature writing. Elizabeth Gilbert currently lives between Philadelphia and Brazil.

The book in one sentence: After enduring a painful divorce and largely unfulfilling life, Liz Gilbert embarks on a life-changing year-long journey that takes her to Italy, India and Indonesia for pleasure, devotion and balance.

Who would you recommend it to: Anyone feeling dissatisfied with their lives and considering making a major change in it.

OK bits: I loved reading about Italy best, followed by Indonesia.

Boring bits: India was a bit boring for me.

Random review quote:

“A good read. I can’t get away from it” – Britney Spears, Glamour

Verdict: I was skeptical starting this, because it sounded quite cheesy. It is in a way, but I can see why this book is popular. A good read nonetheless.
