I loved the story line & International research of details to back up the main idea.
I don't want to say I love her book, I love her as a person as much as Possible without actually meeting her.
Sounds creepy but really it's amazing how much she has calmed me in a time of my life where I felt panicked and lost.
She's so animated in her narrating because you can tell she is re-living her story as she tells it!
She is relatable, humble, honest, vulnerable in all the ways that make you connect to her.
It so strongly contagious! I've never once finished an audiobook or a book from cover to cover since high school...until I read Big magic, which forced me to listen to eat pray love, and then this book. I have thoroughly enjoyed every single minute of her words and her voice!
I will never be the same, thank you Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Gilbert write a compelling argument to herself about marriage. I must say I quite frankly enjoy this book. I have many of the same questions about marriage too. So it's nice to know, I'm not the only one with the same problem.
not as good as the first, but overall not bad. I don't really like how she takes God completely out of marriage considering her personal journey in 1st memoir. other than that is was very insightful.
I'm going to listen to this book again right away! It's filled with great stories and experiences about other cultures and traditions and gives a great perspective of why people marry.
I can relate so much to Elizabeth Gilbert and her desire for a union not controlled by the government. Her connection to her boyfriend shows that she really loves him and doesn't need a marriage to define their relationship.
I've only read Eat, Pray, Love but this was the first book by her that I listened to and I'm glad I did.
The part of the book that moved me was when they were at the airport and had to question their beliefs about marriage. I think a lot of couples who are from different countries can relate to this situation or fear.
As a born-again Christian, I wasn't sure what to expect or think about a secular both like this. I am so glad I read it (well, listened to it).
The author's delivery and performance was awesome. More important was her message: what she shared. Some things don't agree with my worldview, yet, over all I was granted this wonderful look and understanding into the world of a woman's mind, and how least one woman, and through case studies other women, think about marriage. It was really delightful, inspiring, and I loved it: I couldn't stop listening.
As a guy in his 40s who's never been married, the biggest benefit I got from this book is it really made love and relationships so much more accessible to me and made me really fall in love with both.

Liz you have be caught up in the ways of the world and are teaching it's doctrine in a very sad way. You have some good stuff here but not worth having to dig through the mire you have picked up in your journey. Reader if you are after truth there are better sources.
Elizabeth Gilbert writes from the heart and bears her soul. After all, she did write this book for herself, which turned out to be a genius move. I love that she is the voice to this audio book. Not that she has any trouble conveying with her words, but she adds really nice touches. I was ready to be educated about marriage, but I receive so much more.
