It's 3 a.m. and Elizabeth Gilbert is sobbing on the bathroom floor. She's in her thirties, she has a husband, a house, they're trying for a baby — and she doesn't want any of it. A bitter divorce and a turbulent love affair later, she emerges battered and bewildered and realises it is time to pursue her own journey in search of three things she has been missing: pleasure, devotion and balance. So she travels to Rome, where she learns Italian from handsome, brown-eyed identical twins and gains twenty-five pounds, an ashram in India, where she finds that enlightenment entails getting up in the middle of the night to scrub the temple floor, and Bali where a toothless medicine man of indeterminate age offers her a new path to peace: simply sit still and smile. And slowly happiness begins to creep up on her.

    Well, I don't really know what to say about the book... On the one hand, the subject is rather interesting and the idea is great, but on the other hand, the presentation could have been better and the language more refined... I would prefer if the author would not mix all in one - self searching, sex, eating, meditation, Hinduism, praying, Buddhism, masturbation etc. - for it ends up being everything for everybody, but nothing really for anybody...

    💞Heel mooi

    It’s not very classy to say that the book is better than the movie, isn’t it? Well, for me it is. Of at least, the character of Liz Guilbert is closer to my heart than the character of Julia Roberts.

    Very honest, very powerful, very female story of coming up from pain to love. Spent good time with it.

    Zen masters always say that you cannot see your reflection in running water, only in still water.
    Юлия Черкесоваciteerde uit8 jaar geleden
    You have more good luck than anyone I’ve ever met. You will live a long time, have many friends, many experiences. You will see the whole world. You only have one problem in your life. You worry too much. Always you get too emotional, too nervous. If I promise you that you will never have any reason in your life to ever worry about anything, will you believe me?”

    I am learning about twenty new Italian words a day. I’m always studying, flipping through my index cards while I walk around the city, dodging local pedestrians. Where am I getting the brain space to store these words? I’m hoping that maybe my mind has decided to clear out some old negative thoughts and sad memories and replace them with these shiny new words.
