I was going through a very difficult time and I truly believe this book not only pulled me through it but enabled me to see a clear path forward. You quickly empathize with her problems, with her insecurities and unhappiness to fully understand the nature of her external and internal journey.

Some sad, some funny, some insightful, some lovely, and more than enough to make you wish you could at least take a similar trip. From the Italian twins, Richard from Texas, all the way to Ketut the medicine man. I liked reading about her personal journey but I also wouldn’t necessarily call it spiritual. After a few days of processing the book, what stood out for me was the author’s truly courageous willingness to write in an intensely personal style and be completely honest about herself.

You can find so much online, and you can even find disgruntled ex disciples telling their own stories.

I’d give the book three and a half stars if I could, but in the absence of half stars, I’m going to be miserly and round it down to three.


Needless to say, it got published because somewhere, somebody loved it. I had heard that the swami from my old temple would be attending too, so this put me in a rebellious mood. Some have called her a self-centered whiner but to me she was only expressing her anguish, trying to make sense of her world after it turned upside down, and finally allowing herself to heal.

Which I would be fine with because we are all somehow the centre of our own private universeif she at least acknowledged it. But to live with a soul mate forever? I bbeminnen appreciate that readers found Gilbert’s writing self-indulgent and many of her cultural descriptions are stereotypes, but this is not the point of this book. But instead, Gilbert decides to pack up and visit Italy, India and Indonesia, three places she hopes will ultimately bring her the inner balance she’s been longing for.

But if I didn’t do everything, then I would have failed at traveling.

I think she’s perfect amounts introspective and observant without being too long-winded. Yeah, so that was my feeling about this book going in. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Thanks for telling us about bidven problem. I love Elizabeth’s writing style, subtle sense of humor, and the characterization of each person she interacts with.

I think it’s great that she had the time and money for all this exploration; many people have dreams in their life that never are realized. For hours a day, the saint and his followers would meditate on God. Just like Gilbert during her first weeks in Italy, I was totally elated by my freedom.

I came upon a bodden Italian guy and his wife. But like I said, her lack of actual self-actualization depressed me. I really want to go to Italy, Bali, and maybe India.
