    A New Kind of Country de Dorothy Gilman (whymaggiemay)

    Mennonite in a Little Black Dress: A Memoir of Going Home de Rhoda Janzen (foggidawn)

Elizabeth Gilbert estava com quase trinta anos e tinha tudo o que sempre quis: um marido apaixonado, uma casa nova e espaçosa, o projeto de ter filhos e uma carreira de sucesso. Mas ao invés de sentir-se feliz e realizada, sentia-se confusa, triste e em pânico. Enfrentou um divórcio, uma depressão debilitante e outro amor fracassado. Até que decidiu tomar uma decisão radical: livrou-se de todos os bens materiais, demitiu-se do emprego, e partiu sozinha para uma viagem de um ano pelo mundo. O objetivo de Gilbert era visitar três lugares onde pudesse examinar aspectos de sua própria natureza, tendo como cenário uma cultura que, tradicionalmente, fosse especialista em cada um deles. Assim, decidiu explorar a arte do prazer na Itália, a arte da devoção na Índia, e, na Indonésia, a arte de equilibrar as duas coisas. Escrito com ironia, humor e inteligência, o best-seller de Elizabeth Gilbert é um relato sobre a importância de assumir a responsabilidade pelo próprio contentamento e parar de viver conforme os ideais da sociedade. É um livro para qualquer um que já tenha se sentido perdido, ou pensado que deveria existir um caminho diferente, e melhor. ( )

I re-read this book that I originally read when it was first published because I came across my hard copy of it when I was going through books to donate as I continue my downsizing project. And it begins with the letter "E,” which fills a prompt in The 52 Book Club. I loved the first third of the book and felt lukewarm about the remaining two-thirds. My opinion did not change on my second reading of it.

Three stars is generous, but I really did think the first third was quite well-done. I could relate to the implosion of her marriage (although I had married much longer and had three sons), which she explored in that first third (the "eat" part, I call it), although what differs is that unlike many people who are reeling from the disintegration of their marriages, she had enough money to go off and travel comfortably for a year, trying to find herself. I could relate to her emotional relationship with food in the "eat" section as well. This description was exquisite: “Sausages of every imaginable size, color and derivation are stuffed like ladies’ legs into provocative stockings, swinging from the ceilings of the butcher shops. Lusty buttocks of hams hang in the windows, beckoning like Amsterdam’s high-end hookers. The chickens look so plump and contented even in death that you imagine they offered themselves up for sacrifice proudly, after competing among themselves in life to see who could become the moistest and the fattest. But it’s not just the meat that’s wonderful in Lucca; it’s the chestnuts, the peaches, the tumbling displays of figs, dear God, the figs…”

I thought the "pray" third of the book was the weakest, and had I not been so in love with the first third, it might have been a DNF. This section is set in an ashram in India, where Ms. Gilbert tries to find serenity through meditation and prayer. I have read and enjoyed far better accounts of such spiritual journeys, so it was not that the subject matter was uninteresting to me; I just found the whole section fell flat.

The final section, "love", takes place in Bali, where Ms. Gilbert tries to synthesize all she has learned about herself in the previous parts of her journey. She settles on advice provided by an old medicine man, Ketut, who she meets there: “To meditate, only you must smile. Smile with face, smile with mind, and good energy will come to you and clean away dirty energy. Even smile in your liver.” To me, it was a lot better than the second part, but it did not live up to the promise of the first part. This is not a criticism of Ms. Gilbert and her choices, just my opinion that two thirds of the book did not live up to the promise of the first, and unfortunately, that disappointment I felt is reflected in my rating.

Gilbert is suffering from shattered confidence. Who hasn't been there? Who hasn't cried on a bathroom floor, sure that our life is over at 32? Gilbert's beauty is that she isn't exceptional; she's just an ordinary gal with a broken heart and gift for writing.
adicionado por Shortride | editarNational Public Radio, Davie Sax (Dec 3, 2009)
 
Lacking a ballast of gravitas or grit, the book lists into the realm of magical thinking: nothing Gilbert touches seems to turn out wrong; not a single wish goes unfulfilled. What's missing are the textures and confusion and unfinished business of real life, as if Gilbert were pushing these out of sight so as not to come off as dull or equivocal or downbeat.
 
Your book was recommended by a friend, and he's right in saying this story is awesome. Why don't you try to join N0velStar's writing contest?

When I get lonely these days, I think: So be lonely, Liz. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person's body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.
...I don't care how diligently scholars of every religion will try to sit you down with their stacks of books and prove to you through scripture that their faith is indeed rational; it isn't. If faith were rational, it wouldn't be—by definition—faith. Faith is belief in what you cannot see or prove or touch. Faith is walking face-first and full-speed into the dark.
Man is neither entirely a puppet of the gods, nor is he entirely the captain of his own destiny; he's a little of both.
Culturally, though not theologically, I'm a Christian.
