Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia By Elizabeth Gilbert

A very pleasant surprise! I absolutely enjoyed this book. If you wander through my library you will notice that this is not my usually type of book. It is also not easy to classify this work. It is a travel/journey reflection…a reflection not only on the external world of travel but the internal world of the heart and soul. Elizabeth Gilbert does outstanding job in interweaving both journeys through these realms and taking us to a larger meaning that embodies both realms. She creates wonderful metaphors and contrasts in illuminating her own growth and awareness through this exotic global trip. Her writing is very engaging on many levels. I found it be humorous, ironic, inspiring and very touching. I recommend this book to anyone looking for guiding principles to add to their life…anyone wanting to change or evolve their life…and anyone of a romantic heart, wondering soul and an optimistic mind. This is worth your time. (4 1/2 Stars out of 5)
