Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

Liz Gilbert’s life was a mess. She wanted a divorce, she fought off and on with her lover and she just wanted to go away. And go away she did to the three I’s. Italy, India, and Indonesia. She found food and friends in Italy. She found the love of God in an Ashram in India and she found herself in Bali, Indonesia.

Liz’s brave narrative is humorous and very informative. I found her descriptions of various meditations and the histories of the countries she visited to be very interesting. The people she met on her journey are friends for life and gave her very wise advice. I envy her guts to take off to the unknown and spend a year abroad. I wish I had the means to do that myself.

A good summer read.
