A transformational journey through Italy, India, and Bali searching for pleasure and devotion—the massive bestseller from the author of Big Magic, on sale now!

This beautifully written, heartfelt memoir touched a nerve among both readers and reviewers. Elizabeth Gilbert tells how she made the difficult choice to leave behind all the trappings of modern American success (marriage, house in the country, career) and find, instead, what she truly wanted from life. Setting out for a year to study three different aspects of her nature amid three different cultures, Gilbert explored the art of pleasure in Italy and the art of devotion in India, and then a balance between the two on the Indonesian island of Bali. By turns rapturous and rueful, this wise and funny author (whom Booklist calls “Anne Lamott’s hip, yoga- practicing, footloose younger sister”) is poised to garner yet more adoring fans.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

A fantastic vacation read
July 17th, 2015
Everything has already been said about this book, so I will only say it lived up to the hype for me. Turning the last page I felt braver and stronger after a recent break up, and inspired to extend the current solo backpacking trip I was on . A great read.

This was an enjoyable read offering believable insight into the mind and personality of the author. A bit long in parts but still very good.

This memoir chronicles the story of Elizabeth Gilbert’s marriage, divorce and her travels around the world, trying to find herself. She spends four months in Italy, eating and enjoying life (“Eat”). She spent three months in India, finding her spirituality (“Pray”). She ends the year in Bali, Indonesia, looking for “balance” of the two and found love (“Love”) in the form of a handsome and charming Brazilian factory owner.

Don’t do it unless you are in Oprah’s Book Club
November 1st, 2014
A great idea with a great premise, even a great message. But that message started wearing really thin for me about 2/3 of the way through. I think it was her delivery. She just started getting too repetitive, preachy and, well, annoying. It was like going travelling with a friend for a week too long.

A travel blog-style peace of art
April 2nd, 2014
This book actually inspired me NOT to follow a path worth fighting for in my own quest to find myself after a terribly serious break up. This helps "the inspirers" of the world prioritize their lives, hone in on their needs and assertions and it is what I would consider a revision to a young adults travelling pants and instead a resolution in eating properly and balancing the self and ego. I would recommend this piece for anyone seeking solitude and love again. For the person who believes in the universe, this is a world involved piece in inner peace. A value neutral must-read for twenty year olds and divorcees. The movie does not do this novel justice.

I've never been so at peace and inspired by a book while also laughing hysterically. The perfect feel good novel.

Just after getting this for my ebook reader, I'm finding it super hard to put down. Some passages may be a bit difficult to muddle through, it's an excellent read, nonetheless.

Although somewhat hard to get into at first, once you get past the first heart breaking chapter of this book, I loved it. It was very emotional and witty, and depending on where you are at in life, any part of the story is likely to grab you and pull you in. Gilbert created an amazing story in so many different lands, it's hard not to imagine putting yourself right into the story, whether married, divorced or hungry, you will love it in the end. It's worth a read every time, and I can't wait to re-read it!
