Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert?  I know it's not really for this forum, but my friend made me read it and I was going to just say I did....wink, wink....and return it to her, but when I started it, I couldn't put it down.  Just wondering if anyone here has read it.

Well, it's an Oprah recommendation which I never, never do because that would prove to me that I am just a housewife which I swear I am not! LOL.   However, it's about a woman who was going through some personal problems and dissatisfaction in her life so she walked away from it all.....marriage included......and set out to find herself on a trek through Italy, India and Indonesia.  She's a great writer and story teller and you find yourself turning page after page to see what happends next.

I personally did not care for it.

My sister just passed that book on to me. I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to read it.
