In her early thirties, Elizabeth Gilbert had everything a modern American woman was supposed to want--husband, country home, successful career--but instead of feeling happy and fulfilled, she felt consumed by panic and confusion. This wise and rapturous book is the story of how she left behind all these outward marks of success, and of what she found in their place. Following a divorce and a crushing depression, Gilbert set out to examine three different aspects of her nature, set against the backdrop of three different cultures: pleasure in Italy, devotion in India, and on the Indonesian island of Bali, a balance between worldly enjoyment and divine transcendence.
This book took off and flew in ways that only can be described as, acceleratingly words of self help. I know that it is a non-fiction and some are even a autobiography/memoir. But I think I would, as above, also say very helpful way of telling ladies that even though you may have been knocked down, You can diffidently pick yourself up and go on.
Author Elizabeth Gilbert has written with in the pages of this book a great way of putting your past behind and work toward your future.
I loved it! I hated it! And I cried, laughed, screamed, even though I am married and my husband an I are truly happy, I can relate to this book from my childhood. My parents were divorced when I was very young. And I really wish that both of my parents could have read and been helped by this book.
The only thing that I will say that this book was in some places a bit confusing, and that could just possible be on me. I will not go any further with in this book. Even though I am give this rating for this book, just know that I am going to place it on my self and if needed by others I can honestly relate this book to them.
And so due to the above I am giving this book as of now a Breath of Life Rating of:
Four Clock Rating!!!Disclosure: I did not receive this book in exchange for my review. But the opinions are mine, your opinion may differ, and that is fine with me.
