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.

    Well, I don't really know what to say about the book... On the one hand, the subject is rather interesting and the idea is great, but on the other hand, the presentation could have been better and the language more refined... I would prefer if the author would not mix all in one - self searching, sex, eating, meditation, Hinduism, praying, Buddhism, masturbation etc. - for it ends up being everything for everybody, but nothing really for anybody...

    It’s not very classy to say that the book is better than the movie, isn’t it? Well, for me it is. Of at least, the character of Liz Guilbert is closer to my heart than the character of Julia Roberts.

    Very honest, very powerful, very female story of coming up from pain to love. Spent good time with it.

Quotes

    Екатерина Собольhas quoted3 months ago
    ot to mention that I have finally arrived at that age where a woman starts to question whether the wisest way to get over the loss of one beautiful brown-eyed young man is indeed to promptly invite another one into her bed.

    the health of the planet is affected by the health of every individual on it. As long as even two souls are locked in conflict, the whole of the world is contaminated by it
    Маша Титоваhas quotedlast year
    Dante writes that God is not merely a blinding vision of glorious light, but that He is, most of all, l'amor che move il sole e l'altre stelle…
    "The love that moves the sun and the other stars."
    So it's really no wonder that I want so desperately to learn this language.
