Book Description

17 Nov 2008
Elizabeth Gilbert is in her thirties, settled in a large house with a husband who wants to start a family. But she doesn't want any of it. A bitter divorce and a rebound fling later, Elizabeth emerges battered yet determined to find what she's been missing. So begins her quest. In Rome, she indulges herself and gains nearly two stone. In India, she finds enlightenment through scrubbing temple floors. Finally, in Bali, a toothless medicine man reveals a new path to peace, leaving her ready to love again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sadly Rubbish 23 Feb 2011
By A_Rose
Format:Paperback
I really hate not being able to finish a book, when you've invested the time to choose it and then start reading it. This is sadly one of those books that I just can't bring myself to finish. From the first chapter this woman just infuriated me - having a big whinge about her divorce and acting as though it was the worst thing in life that anyone could possibly endure. This book is a slap in the face to anyone who has suffered real tragedy and hardship in their life - the loss of a loved one, a life-threatening illness, anything actually worth moaning about. I realise that to each person, their own worries are the most important, and sometimes it's hard to keep perspective of the bigger picture. But I really couldn't stomach this self-indulgent crap beyond the first few chapters. I have no idea why it has been raved about so much, I was really, really disappointed. Sorry I spent the money on it and will be using it to stoke my fireplace - wouldn't even take it to a charity shop where some other poor unsuspecting soul might make the mistake of trying to read it.

Having heard many great things about the book eat, pray, love by Elizabeth Gilbert, I decided to give it a go, and all I can say, is what were people thinking, when they helped it onto the best seller list. Although it has a few witty comment's and interesting idea's the author is clearly only interested in one thing, herself. Page after page she rambles on and on about her every woe, which frequently left me begging for an end and horrified to discover that I still hadn't even reached the half way mark. This book is about a woman who lives by the idea that the grass is always greener on the other side, chasing after happiness as if her life depended on it. Nothing is good enough, not a good husband, not a nice house, not her career as a writer, she moans on about how awful her life is when quite frankly, millions of people would love to be in her shoes. When she put's on a few pounds over her ideal weight she act's like she's a hippo, please!

Slitting my wrists, would have, been more pleasurable than this book, and I quite like my wrists. If your aim in life is to be bored too tears 99% of the time and amused for the remaining 1%, you must buy this book, don't sit there staring at the computer, run, go get it, right this second, those of you who quite like your wrist remain seated, and avoid this book like the plague.

2.0 out of 5 stars eat pray love 20 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
I did not enjoy this book. A very self indulgent book. I have spoken to 6 friends, all of whom have read this book and we all feel the same.
I just wanted to give her a good shake and tell her to get on with her life.
Nevertheless, she has made a lot of money and has written a sequel (one to be missed)

1.0 out of 5 stars cliched, cinderella complex claptrap. 28 Aug 2010
By robin
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
god it bored me. it's full of cliches of india, indonesia and italy and their traditions and culture. wow!! the italians make great ice-cream. doh!! thanks for telling me something i didn't already know...
if the most that american women can aspire to is to be like her, then i am not filled with any hope for them whatsoever. thank goodness i am not an american - she makes it sound like that country is in a vacuum, totally unaware of all the rest of the world has to offer. the hardest part for her seems to be getting her head around the fact that outside of america there is another, different, wonderful world.
what kind of book is this meant to be? autobiography? travel guide? self-help manual? it's the autobiography of the most sanctimonious, spoiled brat-bore ever. what's so exceptional about travelling when you're fully supported financially? anyone could do that if they were in the same situation. i am soooooo not impressed, and soooooo annoyed and frustrated by her 'look how wonderful i am' tone.
oh the monotonous, tedious, endless attention to detail. and the repetition. I GOT THE POINT THE FIRST TIME. STOP TELLING ME THE SAME THING AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.
it's not all bad. my favourite character has to be her husband. well done to him for extracting all the compensation he could out of her. it tells me an awful lot about her when even her ex-husband hated her guts by the end. no wonder she avoided going into any detail about her first marriage - this is probably where the truth about her really lies ...
don't waste your time reading this garbage. go and see the film - julia roberts is worth a couple of hours of anyone's time - and then go and get a life of your own in your own way.

1.0 out of 5 stars Get over yourself 23 Mar 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I downloaded this book for my new Kindle and almost immediately wished I hadn't - after a few chapters, I had to abandon it as I didn't think the device could handle being thrown at the wall.

The author is a thirty-something journalist living a perfect, Carrie Bradshaw-style life with her perfect husband in their perfect home in New York. But one night she wakes up and realises this isn't enough for her. After a night spent writhing around on the bathroom floor, wailing and feeling sorry for herself, she finally decides God has spoken to her and told her to leave. Storming out of her marriage, she immediately shacks up with an inappropriate toyboy and blows up her divorce proceedings into the trial of the century.

Luckily for her, she has a generous editor who offers to pay her to go off round the world for a year and find herself (or perhaps they just really wanted some peace). So off she goes to Italy to live the cliche - the beautiful language, the gregarious Italian grandmas force-feeding her delicious pasta and ripe tomatoes, the long siestas, the passionate brown-eyed boys desperate to sleep with her... I understand she then goes on to repeat the same pattern in Indonesia (replacing the gregarious grandmas with ancient yogis feeding her spiritual wisdom), but I couldn't bear to read that far.

This could have been an interesting/inspiring read, but I couldn't get past the endless stream of cliches and the author's drama queen attitude. She needs to get some perspective and realise the world doesn't revolve around her.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing compared to the film
It was interesting in a kind of non-fiction way. I think the film is more visual and less technical and in that sense I was dissappointed with the book, despite its rave reviews.
