eat pray love. One woman’s search for everything across Italy, India and Indonesia. Elizabeth Gilbert.
eat pray love. One woman’s search for everything across Italy, India and Indonesia. Elizabeth Gilbert.2006. ISBN 9780143038412. My wife suggested I read this book and I am glad she did. The author has a clear strong voice that makes this book much more than the movie (which became a Julia Roberts vehicle) . The writing style is excellent. I especially enjoyed Gilbert’s analysis/discussion of God from an Indian and Indonesian context. The story of the the cat tied to a tree is hilarious yet tragically true! I have struggled in past to understand the various forms of God worship across so many cultures, yet at the core I sensed much similarity. Gilbert clears this up but very gently. More than a “chick book” this is actually a very useful point of view.
