I have not seen the movie, but I know that the book is excellent. This author is a superb wordsmith and does a great job with the reading, too. I will look for more by this author.
It is so bad and Gilbert makes me want to puke. I want to listen to this book, I did use one of my credits after all, but I just can't.... it's too awful.
I loved this book! I loved the way Elizabeth Gilbert writes, I love her sense of humor, I loved her insight and how she found meaning in the smallest and simplest of things. She inspired me to take a look at the here and now in my own life.
I am only sorry that I did not read this sooner. Instead I did what I knew was wrong, and that was listen to the critics harp about her selfishness. You know what? We all need to be selfish in order to be generous! Good work, Ms. Gilbert! You made me cry and laugh. I absolutely loved this book. Now I will see how Julia Roberts does in portraying you!
I loved listening to this novel. Since the author is also the narrator, it is even more enjoyable!! It was so moving at times, and paints a wonderful picture of countries far away. Elizabeth Gilbert's search for understanding and faith is wonderful to behold thoughout the book.
One woman's very self-absorbed journey through life. Do I care about how much she wants to love God ? No...skip this dull, dull book.
I thought it was a great 'read'. I have not seen the movie, but was interested in the story nonetheless. I enjoyed Elizabeth Gilbert's voice and really enjoyed the journey she took the reader on. There was a lot of hope and a lot to relate to - to some degree. I always looked forward to listening on my phone in traffic, or at an appointment. It was a very quick book to get through - which I really enjoyed!
Loved Italy!, India was a little harder to get thru, but Bali was the payoff. I really enjoyed Elizabeth Gilberts narration. would listen to again......
I enjoyed this book. I fought this book because it was and Oprah pick and because EVERYONE seemed to be reading it. But I broke down and downloaded and I couldn't stop listening! I thought the fact that it was read by the author made it more personal. I rate it as worth your time.
Excellent. Love listening to author narrating herself. I highly recommend listening. I have several times.
