I just finished reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s bestselling book “Eat, Love Pray”, and it was FANTASTIC! The book is an adventure into one woman’s incredible journey to find herself.
Here was a woman, who from the outside looking in, have the ‘perfect life’. She had a successful career, the big house in the suburbs and a handsome husband. Yet, she found herself crying on the bathroom floor every night, miserable. It is the story of the courage it took to walk away from a life everyone else deemed ‘perfect’, and it portrays her year long journey to Italy, India and Bali – to find herself.
In Italy, she spends 4 months divulging in pleasure (mostly from eating!). In India she spends 4 months at an Ashram, learning how to meditate and pray. And in Bali, her 4 months are to try and find a way to balance the two… and in the process, she finds love.
There is something in this book for everyone. A great read, I recommend it whole-heartedly.
