I still haven't seen the movie (which I plan on doing soon...I always like to read the book before I see the movie), but I finally finished Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. The book is a compilation of stories from her travels around Italy, India, and Indonesia after an awful divorce. It's her personal search for happiness; learning more about her self with each experience she encounters in these very different places. My favorite parts of the book were probably her experiences in Italy- eating, enjoying friends, and eating some more! lol. In India she practiced meditation at an Ashram and in Indonesian she hung out with a medicine man and met some unforgettable people.
I wasn't the fastest at reading this book (and sadly will most likely not reach my 20 book goal for the year), but I really enjoyed her down to earth writing style. Elizabeth Gilbert really puts herself out there, and I think this honesty makes her relatable and interesting. She also just has a way with words. She can describe a person, place, or situation in a way that I would never think of, but it fits so well. I definitely think it is a book worth checking out.
I figured I would give away my slightly used version of Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, so someone else can enjoy it! :)
