Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love is not your typical travel memoir

Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love is not your typical travel memoir. It is a very candid sharing of one woman’s experiences in dealing with trauma. In her early thirties, Elizabeth Gilbert had everything a modern American woman was supposed to want-husband, country home, successful career-but instead of feeling happy and fulfilled, she was consumed by panic and confusion.

Eat Pray Love: After a painful divorce and a love affair that ended, author Elizabeth Gilbert needed help mending her broken heart. She didn’t know where to start, but then one evening, she collapsed on the bathroom floor in prayer. A small inner voice said, Go back to bed. That’s exactly what she needed - rest. She needed to be strong. She planned a one-year vacation in which she hoped to mend her broken heart and to find peace. She would spent four months in Italy; four months in India and four months in Indonesia.

Eat Pray Love: After a painful divorce and a love affair that ended, author Elizabeth Gilbert needed help mending her broken heart. She didn’t know where to start, but then one evening, she collapsed on the bathroom floor in prayer. A small inner voice said, “Go back to bed.”
That’s exactly what she needed - rest. She needed to be strong. She planned a one-year vacation in which she hoped to mend her broken heart and to find peace. She would spent four months in Italy; four months in India and four months in Indonesia. She points out that each country begins with “I’ and this journey was about self discovery.
It’s a must read for people like me who’ve had our hearts broken, and then those hearts never seems to mind. I’m still aching over the loss of my dad and my birth family. I’ve studied meditation with differing results. This book proved a how-to book on how to heal.
Chapters were not intended to be how-to chapters, but that’s what many of them were for me.
Most of us can’t drop everything and rush to an apartment in Rome and then to a retreat in India and then to Bali. But we can learn yoga and meditation anywhere. We can order pizza and make new friends.
If you aren’t hurting and you don’t need the guide to meditation and self discovery, it’s still a great book. The collection of 108 personal essays are fascinating with lots of fresh insights into the human psych and the types of characters that one usually finds only in a novel. There’s Richard the Texan who nicknames Gilbert, “Groceries; there’s the plumber who takes her to the highest spot at the Indian retreat, there’s Ketut the medicine man who is somewhere between 65 and 112 years old and Wayan the medicine woman searching for a home. It’s hard not to fall in love with these characters. Gilbert gains weight in Italy, self awareness in India and self confidence in Bali, Indonesia. And she finds love.
Some chapters are too pat. She discovers the four brothers who are sort of guardian angels we all have. On her way home that day, a monkey threatens her, but she is feisty, and she stand up to the creature. After all she’s got four tough brothers protecting her. Too pat. The chapter was contrived.
The reader is so busy rooting for her that he forgets his own troubles - except to put the book down for awhile to eat, pray, meditate and fall in love.
That’s a lot to get from one book.

I often read books more than once because the first read of a particularly well written book carries me along briskly, urging me on to read the next page to find out what happens. It is though I am on the edge of my seat, leaning into a deeply engaging conversation with a dear friend, asking “ panda then what happened? and then what happened? And then what...”

Rereading this book allowed me to more slowly savor the beautiful prose, to ponder the truths of an insight, to laugh out loud along with the author. I especially appreciated reading the introduction added to this ten year anniversary version because it offered me some reflection questions to muse on as I was reading. I did not need to get swept along in the pace of the story because I already knew what happened. So instead I read, with consideration of my own journey, inspired to dream a little bigger and to face my fears with a little more courage.

I will likely read the book again at some point in the future, perhaps for a milestone birthday. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who dares to dream about what it might look like to take their desires to be the best version of themselves and then to consider how to structure a journey of transformation that will help them to arrive at that place. I like that this is the author’s message to her readers: to allow her story to inspire them to creat their own path based on what is most feasible to them, which begins by asking, “what if?” And then walking towards the answer with courage.

i loved her book "The Signature of All Things". This is more of an autobiography about a needy, self centered person

I really liked this book. I read it when I was going through a tough time and it just sort of motivated me to enjoy life, to just get out there and do something that lets me breathe and relax. A lot of people complain and criticize that she was rich and could just -do- these trips, but I liked it. For me, I just drove to a new city and watched the sun set on the ocean. It motivated me to make my own trip and enjoy life and I liked that. She just felt so real with life and I related to her and her love of food.
