Eat, Pray, Love


I finally finished reading "Eat, Pray, Love." I don't know how I feel about the book-didn't love it, but didn't hate it. Overall, I thought it was interesting and had a lot of good insight toward life and religion, but I didn't necessarily agree with Elizabeth Gilbert's persception of religion and her god. However, I did enjoy reading about her travels to the three Is-Italy, India and Indonesia, especially her account of falling in love. At times, the book seemed to be too in depth for the type of reading I was looking for, but her eloquent writing made me continue reading. In the end, I find Gilbert's "Eat, Pray, Love" an enjoyable book, but think I will stick to chick lit for the next read. Have you read it? What did you think?

I wasn't a fan. I couldn't get over the quick glossover on her divorce. And, the middle section was torture. It was recommended by a friend, so I drug through it. But, seriously, the end just killed me. She spent a year "finding herself" - just to end up with another person??? wierd...
