At 34 years old, Elizabeth Gilbert was educated, had a home, a husband, and a successful career as a writer. She was, however, unhappy in her marriage and initiated a divorce. She then embarked on a rebound relationship that did not work out, leaving her devastated and alone.
After finalising her difficult divorce, she spent the next year travelling the world.
She spent four months in Italy, eating and enjoying life ("Eat"). She spent three months in India, finding her spirituality ("Pray"). She ended the year in Bali, Indonesia, looking for "balance" of the two and fell in love with a Brazilian businessman ("Love").
"I thought this book was really amazingly written. It a perfect self help book, with light reading contents and a simply story flow. It was very inspiring and gave me a hunger to see the world differently and get enjoyment from food and culture and to find happiness within and around us. I actually liked how personal this book was and admired how open and honest Elizabeth Gilbert was in writing her account of her feelings. I think an open mind is something that is needed to enjoy this book to its fullest as I think some people might brush aside some of the authors methods to finding happiness." - Google Review.
