    Story

    As a very happy audio books listener, and an actress, I listen to audio books with a discriminating ear. I listen for content quality - for a listener, as well as narration delivery. I consider this all very important and most audible books are above average quality.

    However, this particular book's narration is quite poor in artistic delivery. It's not monotone, but the same effect occurs because of the repetitive unemotional delivery in this audio. I honestly hated it but only listened because the content itself is so interesting. If there is an alternative narration available -- go get that one!

    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.

    Elizabeth Gilbert is a terrific voiceover talent as well as author. It was pure joy listening to her read her own book. As a person who does voiceover work as a profession, I am awed. Add that I myself am currently living in Rome - and I was thrilled at her discussion of the City.

    I highly recommend this audio book!
