I am late to the game reading this one. It was pretty interesting and engaging though I didn't identify with Liz that much. For me it would be difficult to not feel wonderful while taking a year long vacation. ( )

Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir of her travels in Italy, India, and Indonesia. She took this healing journey after an adversarial divorce and break-up of a subsequent relationship. She eats well in Italy, experiences prayerful meditation at an ashram in India, and meets a variety of loving individuals in Indonesia. She stays four months in each location, giving the reader a taste of the culture and community in the regions she visited.

For me, the highlight of the book is time she spends in Bali, where she meets some amazing people. Wayan is a healer who employs a mixture of herbal-based remedies, spiritual mantras, and blessings. Felipe is a Brazilian ex-pat who offers a loving friendship that sees her through the final leg of her journey.

I listened to the audio book, which I feel enhanced the experience. Gilbert reads well and is a natural storyteller. I think I appreciated her sense of humor more by listening than I would have reading the same lines. It is a little “new-agey” for my personal taste, but overall, an entertaining and enjoyable read.

When divorce throws Elizabeth Gilbert into chaos and depression, she seeks an alternate route to finding her confidence. Instead of pills, she turns to travel and takes a year off from her regular life to explore. As she travels through Italy, India, and Indonesia she discovers that she’s okay with being alone for the first time in her adult life. The pursuit of pleasure, devotion, and a balance between the two, leads Gilbert on unexpected adventures. You’ll laugh and cry along with her as she seeks to improve herself and be at peace with her choices.

The Bottom Line: There’s something appealing about travel memoirs. Maybe it’s the setting or the descriptions of exotic places and cultures that suck people in. In the case of this bestseller, the author visited three very different countries and had three very different experiences, each benefitting her in its own way. Along the way she met several engaging characters and fell in love. Gilbert’s memoir will appeal to others going through and healing from a difficult divorce. And even though the book seems geared towards women, men will appreciate Gilbert’s observations as well.

Gilbert is suffering from shattered confidence. Who hasn't been there? Who hasn't cried on a bathroom floor, sure that our life is over at 32? Gilbert's beauty is that she isn't exceptional; she's just an ordinary gal with a broken heart and gift for writing.
 
Lacking a ballast of gravitas or grit, the book lists into the realm of magical thinking: nothing Gilbert touches seems to turn out wrong; not a single wish goes unfulfilled. What's missing are the textures and confusion and unfinished business of real life, as if Gilbert were pushing these out of sight so as not to come off as dull or equivocal or downbeat.
 
Your book was recommended by a friend, and he's right in saying this story is awesome. Why don't you try to join N0velStar's writing contest?

When I get lonely these days, I think: So be lonely, Liz. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person's body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.
...I don't care how diligently scholars of every religion will try to sit you down with their stacks of books and prove to you through scripture that their faith is indeed rational; it isn't. If faith were rational, it wouldn't be—by definition—faith. Faith is belief in what you cannot see or prove or touch. Faith is walking face-first and full-speed into the dark.
Man is neither entirely a puppet of the gods, nor is he entirely the captain of his own destiny; he's a little of both.
Culturally, though not theologically, I'm a Christian.
