Fluff, Non-fiction

Eat, Pray, Love – ?

The battered paperback on my desk proudly proclaims that over 6 million copies of it have been sold worldwide. I’m not sure why, except for the extraordinary power of hype.

I was going to post a long rant here, but it is autobiographical and I was taught that if you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say anything.

Anyone read it? Loved it? What did I miss?

  1. I enjoyed this book a lot. Except for all the meditation, I didn’t like that. I didn’t read it because of the hype but I did read it despite the hype. And I was surprised how much I liked it .Why? I don’t know. Just the personal story of someone trying to do something different, maybe.

  2. Like you, I had NO patience for this book. I don’t even think that I made it through 50 pages. Also, the film? Yeah, I clicked that one off as well. I don’t get it…other than gen pop is looking for an answer to “the happiness of life” question and the thought of being able to just pick up and go to these places is appealing?

  3. i enjoyed it immensely. i read about it in a spiritual magazine when it came out and i loved the idea of a memoir about a travelling soulsearching lady. it is exactly that. it’s honest and, well, it’s a memoir.
    it’s easy to hate it, i guess.

  4. I like it. especially the Italy and the Bali chapter. I thought she is very honest and funny and applaud her for seeking peace by travelling and see different part of the world and do something about her life, than wallow in her loss and misery.
