Review: Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

Elizabeth is in her thirties, settled in a large house with a husband who loves her and 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 she begins her quest. In Rome, she indulges herself in food. 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.
What a story! Eat Pray Love was an amazing journey and I highly recommend it to all women. This biography on Elizabeth Gilbert gives us an insight into a normal person's life, not just a made up character. Gilbert is witty, funny, talented and dedicated, dropping everything to travel and find whatever part of herself she is missing. She is determined and passionate and ready to take on the world! Gilbert is such a positive role model to women everywhere. She shows us that life is not perfect and it doesn't have to be. Break-ups happen and sometimes we don't always make the right decisions. But what fun is life if you don't mess it up sometimes? They say you learn from your mistakes, so lets make some! Sorry, I've gotten completely off topic here. Anyway, what I'm trying to get across in this post is that nobody's life is perfect and we can learn this from Elizabeth Gilbert's amazing story. She is a beautiful person and Eat Pray Love is a beautiful book.
My rating: 9/10
Eat Pray Love is now a major motion picture and available to own on DVD.
