  1. Wow, this book took me on a roller coaster ride I couldn t decide if I loved it or hated it and it seemed like every few pages I d go from thinking Gilbert was delightfully witty to thinking this was the most horribly self absorbed person to ever set foot on the earth In the end the overall effect was rather like sitting at a party listening to someone tell a long involved story all about themselves, and you re alternately annoyed and fascinated and you want to get up and leave but she s just Wow, this book took me on a roller coaster ride I couldn t decide if I loved it or hated it and it seemed like every few pages I d go from thinking Gilbert was delightfu...

  2. WHY I cringe to think why so many women want to feel that this was a true spiritual journey It was a pre paid journey The woman starts off with telling us over and over about how painful her divorce was, however she dismisses how it ever came to be that way Leaving her audience only to guess it was so horrible she had to leave and find herself.When asked in an interview if dumping her husband and pushing off wasn t selfish, here is what Ms Gilbert had to say What is it about the American WHY I cringe to think why so many women want to feel that this was a true spiritual journey It was a pre paid journey The woman starts off with telling us over and over about how painful her divorce was, however she dismisses how it ever came to be that way Leaving her ...

Eat Pray Love is the monologue of a Neurotic American Princess Liz in her mid thirties The first few chapters background the rest of the book, a confessional that tells how she came to find her 8 year marriage distasteful, realised she wasn t keen on the next logical step which is apparently to fill her expansive apartment with children, and plunges into an impotent depression Without even getting drunk.One night, whilst bawling on the bathroom floor, a habit she has grown fond of, she i Eat Pray Love is the monologue of a Neurotic American Princess Liz in her mid thirties The first few chapters background the rest of the book, a confessional that tells how she came to find her 8 year marriage distasteful, realised she wasn t keen on the next logical step which is apparently to fill her expansive apartment with children, and plunges into an impotent depression Without even getting drunk.One night, whilst bawling on the bathroom floor, a habit she has...

  4. Don t bother with this book.It took me nearly a year to finish it I was so disgusted by the writer s apparent lack of awareness of her own privilege, her trite observations, and the unbelievably shallow way in which she represents a journey initiated by grief, that I initially couldn t bear to read beyond Italy Like others who have written here, I made myself pick...

  6. This was one of those books I will read over and over again All those cynics out there who criticize Gilbert for writing a too cutesy memoir that seems beyond belief and who claim that she is selfish for leaving her responsibility are clearly missing the point First, she did not write the book to inspire you She wrote it as her own memoir you can agree or disagree with how she went about her enlightenment, but you cannot judge her for how she found happiness It is her memoir, not yours This was one of those books I will read over and over again All those cynics out there who criticize Gilbert for writing a too cutesy memoir that seems beyond belief and who claim that she is selfish for leaving her responsibility are clearly missing the point First, she did not write the book to inspire you She wrote it as her own memoir you can agree or disagree with how she went about her enlightenment, but you cannot judge her for how she found happiness It is her memoir, not yours You can achieve enlightement by whatever means you want Second, to call her irresponsible for leaving responsibilities behind is absurd She was in an unhappy marriage You cannot force yourself to be happy I applaud her for doing something that many people are afraid to do She had no children and so the responsibilities she neglected were minimal I also suspect that those of you who didn t enjoy the book could not relate...

  7. I found this book unbelievably phoney.I hated this so much that I got up early this morning to finish it and gave my copy to the library and honestly, I m not too proud of that.To me it just felt so insincere that there s no chance I would have made it past the second chapter had it not been for book club obligations.I enjoyed her writing style, but I absolutely could not warm to her at all To be fair, I do think she would be an excellent travel writer.The section on India was agony to read I I found this book unbelievably phoney.I hated this so much that I got up early this morning to finish it and gave my copy to the library and honestly, I m not too proud of that.To me it just felt so insincere that there s no chance I would have made it past the second chapter had it not been for book club obligations.I enjoyed her writing style, but I absolutely could not warm to her at all To be fair, I do think she would be an excellent travel writer.The section on India was agony to read I have met enough people freshly returned from Indian ashrams to know that they often seem a tad self absorbed and I also suspect that they really only get up at 3am so that...

  8. Shallow, self indulgent and mired in the sort of liberal American obsession with oriental exoticism that is uniquely offensive because it is treated as enobling by its purveyors She treats the rest of the world as though it exists for the consumption of jaded, rich, white Am...

  9. Ok, I admit I still have about 30 pages to go, which I will get around to reading soon need a break from the book though and which I highly doubt will prompt me to change my 2 star rating I know many people love this book for what I consider personal reasons, therefore I tread lightly so as to not come off as critical of people s personal opinions, rather, just the book itself First, I found the author not so likable I ve read other readers reviews in which she was described as so funny Ok, I admit I still have about 30 pages to go, which I will get around to reading soon need a break from the book though and which I highly doubt will prompt me to change my 2 star rating I know many people love this book for what I consider personal reasons, therefore I tread lightly so as to not come off as critical of people s personal opinions, rather, just the book itself First, I found the author not so likable I ve read other readers reviews in which she was described as so funny and like a girl we d all love to know and have to tell you, I didn t feel the love She came off to me as lofty, self absorbed, and needy I felt like she wanted to make herself a victim of her divorce and her depression She was so vague about some aspects of the decline of her relationship with her ex husband as well as with some details about the divorce, which led me to believe that she really did a number on him, but then she whined throughout the book ...

  10. What I m about to say must be wrong, because I couldn t get through this book I tried And I failed So I have NO BUSINESS WRITING THIS Don t read it.A cousin recommended EPL and I thought it would teach me something about the book market My secret boyfriend at the public library was horrified I checked it out, given his ACLU offensive intimacy with my record and tastes and yes, like others, I was embarrassed to have EPL in my possession.Because What IS this MOVEMENT of lily white bourgeois What I m about to say must be wrong, because I couldn t get through this book I tried And I failed So I have NO BUSINESS WRITING THIS Don t read it.A cousin recommended EPL and I thought it would teach me something about the book market My secret boyfriend at the public library was horrified I checked it out, given his ACLU offensive intimacy with my record and tastes and yes, like others, I was embarrassed to have EPL in my pos...
