It's 3 a.m. and Elizabeth Gilbert is sobbing on the bathroom floor. She's in her thirties, she has a husband, a house, they're trying for a baby - and she doesn't want any of it. A bitter divorce and a turbulent love affair later, she emerges battered and bewildered and realises it is time to pursue her own journey in search of three things she has been missing: pleasure, devotion and balance. So she travels to Rome, where she learns Italian from handsome, brown-eyed identical twins and gains twenty-five pounds, an ashram in India, where she finds that enlightenment entails getting up in the middle of the night to scrub the temple floor, and Bali where a toothless medicine man of indeterminate age offers her a new path to peace: simply sit still and smile. And slowly happiness begins to creep up on her.

Customer reviews


I was excited with anticipation to read this well publicised book - what a disappointment. The writer spent most of the book indulging her self pity when really, her problems were mostly insignificant. I read every painstaking page as I optimistically expected it to get better - alas, I was mistaken, but hope that if there is just one person who doesn't read this book because of my review, my own journey through this tormentuous nonsense will not be in more

I really, really wanted to like this book, so it's with a heavy heart that I acknowledge that it wasn't the inspiring, up-lifting, journey of self-discovery book I thought it might be. While at times I could enjoy 'Eat, Pray, Love' I found that overall it was a struggle to pickup and more

Eat, Pray, Loved It!

Uninteresting read...

When I read a novel, I expect to feel something - excitement towards the plot, empathy towards the characters, anticipation for what's to come. I felt absolutely nothing reading this novel. She talks about how hard life is for her and though I can appreciate that she went through a very difficult personal experience, it's not interesting enough to write a book about. I stopped reading after Italy... I can't believe they adapted this book for a movie!show more
