'Like Eat, Pray, Love, her follow-up, Committed, feels irresistibly confessional ... I found myself guzzling Committed, reading it in mighty chunks, far into the night. Whenever I put it down, it was pinched by my mother or sister' (Sunday Times)
'An unblinkered consideration of what marriage really means' (Woman & Home)
'Gilbert delves deep into the history and cultural meanings of marriage, as well as into her own relationship' (Financial Times)
'Insightful ... She speaks for many who question the bliss in conjugal bonds, or, at least, those who want to understand how the tradition still perpetuates. For better or worse' (Vogue)

before you read this also read eat pray love or watch the film , because the film is spiritual and really is quite beautiful and moving cant wait to read all of this book but already feel like right from the word go it really does make you ponder quite a lot and to question your attitudes to being part of a couple or getting married in fact this book is highly recommended for both cohabiting couples or engaged couples considering marriage !
However, the book then wandered off into a lengthy exposition on marriage as viewed by different cultures, which is alright in small doses, but I confess I lost interest at this point despite being an admirer of Liz Gilbert's writing style. I am probably old fashioned, but I find detailed unpicking of subjects such as marriage does little or nothing to improve your own enjoyment of matrimony.
The book has many very interesting and valuable references/quotes which kindle readers have highlighted and which I found myself agreeing with or talking about but I did tend to get bogged down with them and miss the action I was expecting.
I would still recommend it as it is a sequel and it links well but it was not the 'can't put it down' book I was hoping for.
