  A must read for women

| | See all Mariafromdenmark's reviews (15)

I read this book before I was a big reader, but I loved it.
It is an amazing story of overcoming the most basic challenges in life, but challenges that can be all consuming because they cover such basic needs. I have read the book again, and I have watched the movie with Julia Roberts (read the book first, then see the movie). The movie is good but there are some points that lack in it, but I find in this case that it is good to combine the two. It is life affirming, it has great points that are good to remember in life, and it is a story of love; Love of yourself and love in life. I made my mother and my mother in law read the book, and they both loved it too. Must read for women :)

I started reading this and had finished within a week. I thought it was funny and interesting and i thoroughly enjoyed it

Yes, i agree with some of the other reviews, in that it is fairly self indulgent, but that is to be expected with this kind of story. I found a lot of the anecdotes entertaining, plus lots of interesting things about the countries she visits as she goes along. It's very genuine and honest and that comes across throughout. It feels very real

I could relate to the character is some ways and not others; i think if you cannot relate at all then you will probably find this book a little heavy going and stuggle to keep interest.

  My thoughts on the book Eat, Pray, Love

I love to read and have read many books of different styles - I have struggled with this book from the first chapter, it has been a real dissapointment - I have never found a book to be so difficult to continue reading but I have not let a book defeat me yet..... This one has come extremely close to me not finishing.
I have found the charcter to be extremely self indulgent and the second section is really hard going.

  Self-indulgent and slightly irritating...

The first section of this book is funny and intriguing. However once you get past the first of three sections, 'Eat Pray Love' starts to drag and the author becomes self-pitying and self-induglent. Maybe it's because I am a 23 year-old reader who doesn't 'get' divorce, but I ended up thinking GET A GRIP quite a lot throughout the rest of the book.

This book is fantastic, every woman should read it. It's funny, witty and totally honest. I wasn't aware that it was autobiographical and normally I can't stand those type of books, however I loved this book instantly ans was completely absorbed in her world. A great one for the girlies.

  good book

I can only agree with some of the other reviews, I found this really hard to get in to, but did read it through to the end and I think I was pleased that I did. I know this has been a smash hit in America, but I have to say that I don't think it deserves such high praise and attention.

  really dissapointed

I had brought this book because a couple of friends recommended it and obviously it has had a lot of media attention.
I have to say i really found it tough to read, especially when she got to the Ashram in India....i almost gave up!
It did get a little better towards the end but it was really over-rated and set me up for a disapointment!

The Book is a really good read but i found at times difficult to keep on reading and i wasnt sure whether it was because I couldn't really relate to the character or whether it was for some other reason but i would recommend it to read as she does tell some funny and interesting stories

I purchased this book at the airport on the way to Bali. I couldn't put it down and after the last page, I started all over again. Absolutely delightful book, . Quite deep but wonderfully articulated. I looked for the Medicine man in Bali, but to no avail !!........
