See all 46 questions about Eten, bidden, beminnen…. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I am embarrassed to read this book in public.
The title and the flowery, pasta-y cover screams, “I’m a book that contains the relentless rants of a neurotic 34 year-old-woman.
But in the comfort of my own bed, I am totally falling for this memoir. Yes, Gilbert is emotionally self-indulgent are we supposed to feel bad that she lost both houses in the divorce? The endless, endless crying. Then again, this is a memoir and when the writing is just so clever, so hospitable, so damn funny, it’s really hard to hold that against Gilbert in the end. The plot goes something like this: A year-old writer has everything she wants, including several successful books, a husband and two houses.
When she realizes she doesn’t want to have kids and that she’s not happy after all, she has a breakdown and leaves her husband. In the process, she realizes she has no identity. But instead, Gilbert decides to pack up and visit Italy, India and Indonesia, three places she hopes will ultimately bring her the inner balance she’s been longing for.
And on the surface, this book is a really entertaining travel essay. Gilbert has this wonderfully quirky way of describing everything: A piece of pizza, a gelato. It’s on her travels that I start to identify with Gilbert. When I was 21, I spent four months traveling in Australia. Just like Gilbert during her first weeks in Italy, I was totally elated by my freedom. But about two weeks in, the loneliness came around and so did the anxiety.
My typical day started with this inner monologue: How I envied the Eurotrash who could just sit by the hostel pool and read all day. But if I didn’t do everything, then I would have failed at traveling. In retrospect, Australia was a turning-point in my young life. I had no idea that this “go-go-go” attitude was how I had been living for years. No wonder people thought I was uptight. Relaxing had never come easy to me, and it never will, but I’m getting a lot better at letting go and not worrying about seeing every last museum Gilbert ruminates on this topic quite a bit in her book.
Her first moment of true, unfettered happiness comes when she poaches some eggs and eats some asparagus on the floor of her apartment. So simple, but so fulfilling. In India, she writes that “life, if you keep chasing it so hard, will drive you to death.
She’s not very good at it, and she wonders if all the energy she’s spent chasing the next experience has kept her from enjoying anything. At this point in the book, I find myself wondering if Gilbert wants to be there at all.
Perhaps going to an Ashram was the thing she thought she should do, not what she wanted to do. I sure as hell wouldn’t. What I really love about “Eat, Pray, Love” is that it’s all about asking the simple question, “what do I want,” a question that would have come in handy in Australia and numerous other times in my life.
It’s so hard for some people, including me, and it really shouldn’t be. I think that when you can honestly answer that question “No. I don’t want to go to that discussion on post-modernism, even though I realize that I should be interested in it and it would make me a lot cooler in your eyes.
Really, I just want to watch back-to-back episodes of “Scrubs” you’re well on your way to realizing your own identity and being ok with whoever that person is. View all 31 comments.

At 32 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 finalizing her difficult divorce, she spent the next year traveling 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”.

Of course I was wrong.

At first I didn’t really get how serious Gilbert’s problem was — she only mentioned the word ‘suicidal’ in a passing, almost nonchalant way — until she described her use of medication and the moments when she seriously thought of killing herself.
Her tone is often melancholic in places; in others it was rich with humor and wit. Some have called her a self-centered whiner but to me she was only expressing her anguish, trying to make sense of her world after it turned upside down, and finally allowing herself to heal. I also find that Gilbert’s open-mindedness toward many schools of spiritualism and religion leads me to tolerate hers as well. I may or may not agree with her practices and beliefs one of them is that there is no such thing as hell because if imperfect humans can be so compassionate and forgiving, why not God almighty Himself?
In an era where religious debate can so easily lead to scathing insult and physical aggression, Gilbert’s take on religion is a breath of fresh air. But the core of the story, for me, is that Gilbert’s search brought her face to face with the only one who can help her: Only you can bring yourself from an awful state to a better place. Just like Gilbert’s favorite Italian word: View all 14 comments. This book and Wild by Cheryl Strayed are my favorite types of memoir to listen to.
A woman traveling the world to get more in touch with herself and recover her mental health? But I honestly prefer Wild to this one.
