Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Elizabeth Gilbert

Narrated By: Elizabeth Gilbert

Publisher: Penguin Audio

Date: February 2006

Duration: 12 hours 53 minutes

Summary:

It's 3 a.m. and Elizabeth Gilbert is sobbing on the bathroom floor. She's in her 30s, 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 25 pounds; to an ashram in India, where she finds that enlightenment entails getting up in the middle of the night to scrub the temple floor; and to 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.

    A few skips here and there. Not a huge fan of the accents she did but overall it was calming to listen to. The author has a soothing voice. The book was pretty good and it was nothing like the movie. The end was a bit rushed but overall I enjoyed the descriptions, the history of the countries she visited and the overall message of the book.

    Her description of the pizza da michele basically made me cry, took me straight back in Napoli. The narrative is so nicely written, it made me travel with her, feeling the pain and the joy. Thank you for the amazing journey and for all the people you introduced from your story to us.

    Not At All Like The Movie!!! Her monotone voice puts me to sleep. I had to turn it off because I was driving and I had to replay it every few minutes because I wasn't paying attention to it. If you have seen the movie, let me tell you Julia Roberts was amazing compared to the book. She made it lively and funny and made me want to read the book. BAD decision. If you haven't see the movie throw the book, tape, audio book away and get the movie!!! I promise you, you will Thank Me!!!

    It isn't loud enough to listen to, on any device. Her voice is too soft and monotonous. I also think she reads to fast.

    Wonderful wonderful book! 1st time I have ever enjoyed an author narrate their own book. The author was remarkable in her abilities to infuse warmth and humor, heartbreak and angst. I enjoyed this book so much; I bought the hardcover before I was even done with it. I appreciated the author’s honesty she showed in every situation she found herself in even when it wasn’t flattering. This was GREAT book!
