    Winner of an Academy Award in Literature, a pair of National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, and the Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction, Jayne Anne Phillips is a master storyteller. Her first novel in nine years concerns a West Virginia family facing the spectre of the Korean War.

    Jamie says: "Poetic prose"
    "Hard to Follow"
    Overall

    I've tried listening to this book twice now since it has gotten good literary reviews but trying to follow the narrations from the Korea portion of the story or those told from Termite's perspective are just too hard to follow.

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be. To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. She got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. This is the absorbing chronicle of that year.

    Overall

    I enjoyed the first third of this book (The Eating Part). It was entertaining and humorous. But by the second part (The Praying Part), it got a little difficult to hear the narrator/author wax on repetitively about trying to achieve "enlightenment". Maybe if you are into mediation it would be easier. This woman is hugely self-absorbed. Not really my cup of tea, although I usually enjoy travelogues.
