‘Eat, Pray, Love’ by Elizabeth Gilbert ~ A Review…

Let me begin by saying I actually spent a good deal of time refusing to read this –(stubbornly) choosing to resist the hype and (wrongly) assuming it would prove to be a boring pile of sentimental, overly-spiritual mumbo-jumbo…

Luckily, I happen to love Julia Roberts. Andavier Bardem makes me swoon. So when the film came out, I just knew resistance was futile. And it was thus, wanting to stay true to the principle of “reading the book first”, that I ended up logging on to Kindle and downloading “Eat, Pray, Love” to my HTC…

Having just finished reading it, I have to admit to feeling extremely guilty. Guilty of judging something without even trying it -and of almost missing out on a wonderful story, just because of my silly narrow-mindedness.

Broken down into easy-to-digest, short chapters and written with amazing sincerity and humor, the book tells the engaging, heart-warming & highly relatable story of a woman trying to find herself, her faith and the things that make her truly happy –amidst the chaos and complexity of everyday relationships and life.

It makes you laugh. It makes you cry. It moves & inspires you. It teaches you new things and helps you travel (albeit vicariously) to some amazing countries. And most importantly, if you are ready, it makes you think about your own life and the ways in which you could help make it better.

Highly recommended …
