Beschreibung

Elizabeth ist Anfang dreißig und hat eine schmerzvolle Scheidung hinter sich. Sie steht vor dem Nichts und beschließt, alles, was sie bisher hatte, in New York zurückzulassen und ein neues Leben zu beginnen. Sie verbringt vier Monate in Rom, lernt Italienisch, genießt das Leben und vor allem das gute Essen. Es folgen vier weitere Monate in einem indischen Ashram, wo sie sich in endlosen Meditationen übt. In Bali schließlich erfährt sie die glückliche Balance zwischen innerem und äußerem Glück. Mit Selbstironie, Charme und Intelligenz erzählt die Autorin von ihrer Reise durch die Welt und zu sich selbst. Eine ehrliche und bewegende Selbsterfahrungsgeschichte für alle, die mutig Verantwortung für sich selbst übernehmen wollen.

    So I'm in the second book and I need to stop, though interesting it's also boring and slightly depressing
  • (4/5)
    Though the author seems a bit arrogant when explaining obfuscation of names in the forward (she expects her book to be that famous?) I was totally taken in by her charm and her journey from divorce-induced depression through and exploration of pleasure, devotion and love represented by sojourns in Italy, India and Bali. I took vicarious pleasure in her fabulous meals, intense meditation and search for divinity at her guru's ashram and observations of beauty and love in Bali. Gilbert also reads the audio book and she does it well. It's been one of the most soothing put me to sleep books in a while, I'm a little sorry I rushed through to the end this morning...

    I enjoyed the first section on Italy. It was an interesting story and fun to read. The section about India was more spiritual, and also interesting. It took me longer to read this section, because I felt like I was reading more slowly in order to absorb it all. The Indonesia section wasn't as good as the first two. But overall, I enjoyed the book.

    This book is dumb and the author annoyed me. So of course it's a fantastic commercial success and has been made into a movie starring Julia Roberts. That's how I roll.

    Here is a woman who had everything: Loving husband, beautiful house, fabulous career....but she didn't have GUSTO. So, she abandons everything and gorges in Italy, purges in Bali, and preys upon some other poor sod. Self-absorbed balderdash.

    Not only did I not like this book, I pretty much hated it. This is the first book I've finished that I hated. Most books I am not enjoying I stop reading. I had HOPED the author would have had significant growth.
    My first thoughts on this book were:
    I feel like putting duct tape over this self-absorbed whiny, you know what. Please tell me it gets better; that she "evolves" and becomes a better human being. Also, that the title of the book should have been, Me, Me and More of Me.

    What can I write that others have not? Probably not much, if anything. I will touch on the positive aspects first: two pages about a teen-age girl in India and her minimal growth in Bali, (but then she threw it down the toilet, when she didn't keep her promise to herself.) AND the fact she got of medication. (that is huge!)

    At the end though she gives far TMI that turns into soft porn. I can say I finished it and I hated it from the beginning and had high hopes in Bali only to be thrown against the coral she mentioned on the beaches of Bali.

    Now, what to do with the book....???? Shall I shred each and every page and recycle it in the compost? or shall I save it for fire starter in the winter? Decisions, decisions.

    Why was this book so popular?
