Book Review: Eat Prey Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

EAT, Pray, Love has become a word of mouth bestseller by being passed around from woman to woman like the secret of life!

EAT, Pray, Love has become a word of mouth bestseller by being been passed around from woman to woman like the secret of life!

It really has struck a chord with many 30-plus women who from the outside look like they are living the modern dream and having it all but in reality are missing a spiritual core.

Elizabeth is in her 30s, living in a large house with her husband who wants to start a family. She doesn’t want any of it though. After a bitter divorce and a rebound fling she begins her quest to find what she has been missing in life. In Rome she indulges herself in food and gains two stone. In India she finds enlightenment through scrubbing temple floors and finally in Bali a toothless medicine man reveals a new path to peace leaving her ready to love again.

This is a fantastic account of one woman’s journey to find herself written honestly and passionately and without losing her sense of humour.
