Having read all of the other reviews I will say that this book is not for everyone. It is not really a book about travel, rather a book about journey. I think hearing the autobiographical story in the author's own voice really adds to the experience.
Yes, the book deals with divorce and depression, but it also deals with spiritual, philosophical and practical matters as well. She handles them with respect and wit at the same time.
I enjoyed this book so much that I bought it for everyone close to me. They all greatly enjoyed it as well. Thanks to Liz we're all now learning Itlaian together.
I've never been big into sci-fi and had never read this author before, but I'm glad I did and I intend to read more. The narator is amazing with his use of accents and voices to seperate characters. The author does an excellent job of integrating polititcs and entertainment. He explains technical details just enough without overloading a lay person.
I had a hard time putting this one down. Highly recommended.
