Eat Pray Love Author:Elizabeth Gilbert In her early thirties, Elizabeth Gilbert had everything a modern American woman was supposed to want-husband, country home, successful career-but instead of feeling happy and fulfilled, she felt consumed by panic and confusion. This wise and rapturous book is the story of how she left behind all these outward marks of success, and of what she fo... more »und in their place. Following a divorce and a crushing depression, Gilbert set out to examine three different aspects of her nature, set against the backdrop of three different cultures: pleasure in Italy, devotion in India and on the Indonesian island of Bali, a balance between worldly enjoyment and divine transcendence.
"If a more likable writer than Gilbert is currently in print, I haven't found him or her...Gilbert's prose is fueled by a mix of intelligence, wit, and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible."
THIS BOOK WAS SO MUCH FUN... I TASTED THE FLAVORS, FELT THE SPIRIT-FILLED MOMENTS AND WAS SHOWERED WITH THE LOVE ELIZABETH SPRINKLED SO GENEROUSLY ABOUT IN BALI. FINISHING THIS BOOK WAS LIKE SAYING GOODBYE TO AN OLD FRIEND. FIVE STARS!
