A transformational journey through Italy, India, and Bali searching for pleasure and devotion--the massive bestseller from the author of "The Signature of All Things" 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.

Elizabeth Gilbert began her writing journey with two acclaimed works of fiction: the short story collection "Pilgrims," a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award, and the novel "Stern Men," a "New York Times" Notable Book. These were followed by three works of nonfiction: "The Last American Man," which was a finalist for the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award, and two memoirs, "Eat, Pray, Love" and "Committed," both of which were number one "New York Times" bestsellers. Gilbert's work has been published in more than thirty languages. In 2008, "Time" magazine named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world. She lives in Frenchtown, New Jersey.

For me this book felt like a travel monologue and it was certainly lucky that Elizabeth Gilbert decided to "find herself" in some beautiful countries. I know she espoused finding herself, but only seemed to be happy when she was with someone, even in the movie, it never really seemed to be about her. Still something obviously worked as it has been a huge best seller.

I like this book very much. It speaks to spirituality without the seriousness. It is honest and funny and sweet. The journey of the author as she passes through different stages in her search for inner peace is so real that I had no problem identifying with it as I have ask myself these questions too. A great read!!
An engaging, intelligent, and highly entertaining memoir. ("Time")
