I cannot give this book enough praise. Elizabeth Gilbert is a wonderful writer; she draws her readers in with casual but meaningful prose. For those that don't know about the book, here is the short version: it's nonfiction, and about Elizabeth finding, and becoming her self via a year long trip overseas. She travels through Italy, India, and Indonesia; spending four months in each location.
Never have I related to a book like I did with this one, and I'm an avid reader. I found myself laughing, crying, sympathizing...reading and rereading. After the first couple of pages, I discovered that before I could go any further I needed a pen close at hand. My book is folded, worn, and covered with ink. Passages, quotes, or incites I deemed important were marked, so they became easily accessible for later reading. I'm waiting for the pocket version! lol When I was finished reading I longed for more. Thankfully, she has a semi-follow up book due out in 2009. I can't wait!
Has anyone read Eat, Pray, Love? I would love to hear your thoughts! :)
