Like many others, around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. Although she had everything an educated, ambitious American woman was supposed to want, including a husband, a home, and a successful career, she was consumed with panic, grief, and confusion. This is an account of her pursuit of worldly pleasure, spiritual devotion, and what she really wanted out of life.… (mais)

I resisted reading this book for ages, due to the huge hype surrounding but after reading her later book Big Magic and really liking her voice I decided to give it a try.
I enjoyed most of this book, but in the end, it all just became a bit too smug, and I guess I got tired of reading about her slightly self-indulgent spiritual journey. ( )
  CharlotteBurt | Feb 1, 2021 |
If I could, I would give this book 4.5 stars. I thought it was really good other than she seemed to ramble at times...that's about my only complaint. I found her "experiment" very interesting and found myself longing for a spiritual experience similar to the one she experienced in India. I may just have to dust off my yoga mat. :)

I loved that she was able to discuss her views on religion without putting me off--it's a thin line, let me tell you. I think she's a very talented writer and I love her voice. It works for me.

If you're a "non-religious" individual like myself who is longing to find some kind of practice/activity that brings you closer to "feeling whole" or if your religion just ain't quite cutting it for you, this book may open up some other options for you. Not that this book is all about faith and spirituality, since it is probably more a journey of self-discovery, but for me, that spirituality chunk of it was the most interesting. ( )

I think you have to be in the right mindset for this book, because I can see why many people dislike it. However, I read this after my divorce and a horrible struggle with depression, and was at a point where I could finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I related to Gilbert quite a bit and really enjoyed her journey of self-discover and love. My only major beef is one small vignette about giving up her anti-depressants. She made it seem like it was something she could just decide to do one morning, just wake up and not be depressed anymore. I was angry because I felt like this did a terrible disservice to people who can't just "decide" to overcome their clinical depression. ( )

One of those books that I will remember having read but would never want to read again especially the "pray" section. ( )
  kshydog | Dec 13, 2020 |
I didn't expect to love this book, but I totally did. Although there were parts of it that were difficult, particularly in the beginning when her marriage is dying, I got into it by the time she had embraced the pizza in Italy and was wholly on board by the time she got to India. While I can see how some saw this as a privileged white people blues, I also don't care. I found it a wonderful journey. ( )

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.

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.
 
This book started out as the movie did, interesting, exciting, and drew me in but the
story kind of fell flat at the end for me. I was
disappointed even though I did understand that
this woman was going through a life changing
process.

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.
