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.

    I did not like the book it was too random, and was to slow.

    I love this book, I’m reading it again...amazing author and reader. I strongly recommend it.

  • Amanda K.

    By far one of the most amazing books I have come across. Absolutely changed my negativity after a losing a 5 year relationship. Showed me that there are more amazing journeys we will take in this life. And when we least expect it, love can still come around!

    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.
