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.

“self absorbed and boring”

It is very rare I do not finish a book. This one defeated me. The narrator is like a spoilt child. I couldn't warm to her. I could have put that aside were it not for the one dimensional characterisation . The... More

“Eat, Pray, Love”

I love this book - its funny, intelligent and is written from the heart. Somehow Elizabeth Gilbert manages to combine tragic with funny with entertaining travel journal.
