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
Better than I expected...
I borrowed this from my daughter with no great expectation. It is clearly self-indulgent but somehow I found the character human and believable. I may have bailed out in the ashram except that I had recently been in Bali and was interested to read that section. Not the worst confection I imbibed 2010 which was a very ordinary reading year. Rating 3. by John B Neil
I loved this book. It's a bit self indulgent but it didn't matter. I was so inspired by it I started to research Bali as a holiday destination....exactly where she went. Taking a year off to travel & "find myself" really resonated with me. by Reeva Metz
I loved it. I can see why people say it's self absorbed but it is a book about her experiences, so of course it's going to be all about her. If you can't bear that, don't read it. I thought she was very brave to bare her soul so publicly in this book. by Jelena Popov
What **** - Couldn't even finish it!
If I had to read one more page about her crappy life and how lonely, bored, confused, unloved, misunderstood and mixed up she was I think I'd be sick. After all the hype it was a total disappointment. Couldn't finish it - didn't get past Italy!! Annette Honeyands by Tom Honeyands
Somebody else has probably already said it "eat, pray, vomit" by gayle
Self indulgent codswallop. Me, me, me and a little bit more about 'poor' me. Apparently based on what the author views as a true account of a passage in her life. I found the story long, winding and boring. Not withstanding, the amount of women who interrupted me when I was trying to read the book to tell me how they 'loved the book' and could identify with her was incredibly high. Apart from a desire to travel I felt no such areas whereupon I could identify with Ms Gilbert. In fact not far into her Bali adventure I put the book down, there is only so much muck that one should wade through, do yourself a favour...don't bother. by Yvette Dullaghan
This book is so full of absolute bulldust. Patronising and irritating. Burn before reading. by Joan Rafferty
Eat, Pray, Love
Loved the whole book! Her language and metaphors are beautiful. Once Elizabeth got over herself a bit, she had much to offer other people seeking peace and harmony in their lives. e.g. the petition to God. How much healthier to verbalise what you want to happen, rather than wallow in self pity. Anyone wanting a bit of insight to another culture, or how to handle a personal crisis should read it. by sandra brook
Well... I enjoyed it
I enjoyed this book, but maybe that's because I'm quite a wishful and spiritual person. I can see why it might not be everyone's cup of tea.
I can only wish to escape from my life the way Elizabeth did, and therefore it satisfied a bit of wishful escapism, and vicarious enjoyment. by Cel McC
I enjoyed reading about the months Elizabeth spend in Italy, but i couldn't get past the part where she's in India. It felt like it would never end, and for me it didn't because I never read the rest of the book.. by Amanda
