DescriptionIt'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.

Reviews for Eat, Pray, Love
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 vain... by Kim Stephens
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 read. by nichola
If ever you need a book to put yourself to sleep this is it! Boring!! by Kay Field
Eat, Pray, Loved It!
I loved this book. It was an easy read and I enjoyed the ride. Possibly because I could identify with it. I could not put it down and have told all my friends about it. by Susan McGinn
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! by Rochelle
Self absorbed dribble!!
I bought this book after watching Oprah's show and thought I was going to be inspired. I can honestly say Eat, Pray, Love is the most boring , self absorbed load of dribble I have ever read.
I kept expecting to get to the 'good bit' - but alas it never happened and I gave up on the book when she was in India as everytime I read the book I fell asleep after just a few pages!
I have wondered why women say they felt inspired and got aha moments in the book because I could only read - self pity, self indulgents and a woman with far too much time on her hands to think about herself.
I have led an interesting life and happy to leave my comfort zone along with following a spiritual path through Yoga - but Elizabeth seems to have missed the point and not realised how fortunate she was/is to live her life to the full... she didn't need to go around the globe to find herself as she was running away from herself. Very disappointing load of rubbish which has made her an awful lot of money!! by Amanda Urquhart
I thought it was the most self absorbed drivel I have ever come across. by Kristy A McWilliams
Can't agree with the 1 or 2 star reviews, I loved the book. It wasn't easy to read but if you see the sense and meaning of it you'll see many things in your life different. Very brave women on a very long journey through life and the world. A book which makes you think, down-the-line or wake up and be finally yourself? Or better: Do you know who you are? by Sabrina Stock
Couldn't agree more with 'Burn It' it is the most self indulgent book I have read in ages, I wanted to give her a good shake! by Lesly Maurel
I couldn't even finish the book. I am a solo traveler myself, and I found her "self-discovery" journey to be absolute bullsh*t! I'm sorry, but I can't relate to her in any sense!
The way of writing was long and draggy and BORING! The only inspiration i got was, maybe I can write way better than her! And I'll definitely have more interesting travel stories to tell.
This book is just LAME! by Claudine Ng
