This book has received great reviews but I thought it was so-so; I skipped half of the section on Italy because it was not interesting to me. All the whining and crying about her failed marriage wore a little thin. The sections on India and Indonesia were a little more appealing. And, I really did not need/want to know the details of her bladder infection after several encounters with her new boyfriend . . .

Elizabeth Gilbert is a privileged woman with no real problems in love with her own teenage style drama. She manages to visit countries with high poverty rates where people struggle to find food and clean drinking water and drolly jokes that it's not so bad because their life expectancy is shorter than ours. I'm disgusted that I paid for this book.

At one point this narcissistic, self-absorbed, spoiled brat of an author comes to the realization that what's going on in her head just isn't that interesting. I couldn't agree more wholeheartedly and stopped reading right there. As Oprah has said, "When someone tells you who they are, believe them. The first time."

I tried and tried but could not get into this book. It is split into 3 sections on her travels to three countries: Italy, India, and Indonesia. I did not click with Gilbert at all and found her annoying, repetitive,and not to mention whiny and too self-deprecating by the end of her Italy travels. And so, I moved on to India, but could not continue. Sorry, not for me I guess!

This is such a wonderful book and an engaging read. After a harrowing divorce and breakup, the author goes on a journey to find pleasure through eating, meditates/does yoga to experience God, and then finds balance in her life among everything (and is able to find love). I completely loved the part where she attempts to describe the "indescribable" happiness that everyone searches for. Beauty writing. I highly recommend it for anyone who loves Italian food and/or is open to eastern spiritual experiences.

Maybe i am missing something but i thought this book was just plain boring. The women whines the entire book about how bad her life is instead of enjoying the wonderful places she is staying. Really annoying.
