This was an inspiring read which I enjoyed very much. I actually listened to the audiobook read by the author. Gilbert's excellent narration gave an extra layer of meaning to her thoughts about creativity and how we all have a spark inside of us waiting to be fanned into a flame. It was a short and cheering 5-hour listen. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed listening to this book. Alma was a very interesting character and I loved all the science woven through the book. The narration was glorious....she sounded a lot like Emma Thompson and I could have listened to her all day long. Overall, I liked the book but did not love it. But it was a good read/listen!

Love, love, love Elizabeth Gilbert. This was the perfect book for me right now. I devoured it in three or for sittings. She is so funny and clear and sharp.

i know that (after this sold a billion copies) there was some controversy about this, but i liked it from the beginning. her writing is good, she reads it well, and it's relatable. i found, in the end, that that didn't hold true throughout, but i still liked this overall. not surprisingly, i liked the italy (eat) and bali (love) portions the best. india (pray) felt like too much god and prayer, but that's not fair, i know. there was someone she was talking to, before leaving for her yearlong trip, who said something like, 'i wish i could want to do this' and that's basically how i felt about the prayer portion. i don't believe in religion and i don't care about spirituality, and mostly i don't want to, but she made it sound really profound and meaningful. her view of religion and god were so welcoming and embracing and it made me think that maybe it's not all bad after all.

so this wasn't all hearts and inspiration for me, but i did like it and i do think she's both a good writer and someone with interesting thoughts. i'd definitely read her again.
