I hadn't planned to buy this book -- I don't follow fads -- but I heard the author do a promo spot on NPR for her new book, Committed and she drew me into her story. Eat, Pray, Love is an honest, earthy tale of one woman's very human experience. A few other reviews say the author is "self-absorbed." I find that comment amusing: this is a memoir of self-searching. How can it not be self-absorbed? Even so, Gilbert draws the listener into her story with candor and humor and exotic slices of life that ring every-day true. I'm glad I bought an audiobook -- hearing Ms. Gilbert read her story made it touchingly real. Worth every penny and every listening moment.
