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
a good read
Although it is a bit overindulgent i quite enjoyed Eat Pray Love.
I can see why people criticise this book. A woman with loads of money and opportunities runs away overseas all expenses paid to have a great time, Boo Hoo right?
I have suffered from depression and I enjoyed this book because I can understand the way she felt. All the opportunities in the world dont make you happy. and whilst i never got the chance to go on a life changing trip, I admire Elizabeth Gilbert for confronting her issues an dealing with them.
Is it overindulgent? YES. But how can you write about yourself in a way that isnt?
Worth a read. by Rachael Wilkinson
EAT PRAY LOVE it or hate it
Why was this book such a hit? I must always finish a book I start and this got to be a struggle. I feel sorry that Ms Gilbert had to "get over" her marriage by travelling to italy, india, bali and commencing another relationship. Thank heavens for travelling otherwise Ms Gilbert could still be attempting to reconcile a failed relationship via work, family and friends. She must be counting her blessings for having been born in the late 20th century as opposed to 30 years earlier. by Deanne
