characters ä Eat Pray Love Die Reise ihres Lebens an Dolce Vita in Italien Meditationslehre in einem indischen Ashr. I am embarrassed to read this book in public The title and the flowery pasta y cover screams I m a book that contains the relentless rants of a neurotic 34 year old womanSo I m afraid that the strangers on the Metro will think I identify with herBut in the comfort of my own bed I am totally falling for this memoir Yes Gilbert is emotionally self indulgent are we supposed to feel bad that she lost both houses in the divorce annoying she s just tickled when she gains 23 pounds after eating her way through Italy and often really immature oh The endless endless cryingThen again this is a memoir and when the writing is just so clever so hospitable so damn funny it s really hard to hold that against Gilbert in the endThe plot goes something like this A 30 year old writer has everything she wants including several successful books a husband and two houses When she realizes she doesn t want to have kids and that she s not happy after all she has a breakdown and leaves her husband In the process she realizes she has no identity Boo hooBut 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 And on the surface this book is a really entertaining travel essay Gilbert has this wonderfully uirky way of describing everything A piece of pizza a gelato And the people It s on her travels that I start to identify with Gilbert When I was 21 I spent four months traveling in Australia Just like Gilbert during her first weeks in Italy I was totally elated by my freedom But about two weeks in the loneliness came around and so did the anxiety My typical day started with this inner monologue I have to get to the museum before noon so I can fit in the sea kayaking trip at 2 And then I have to rush to the grocery store to get food to make dinner in the stinking hostel kitchen because god forbid I go out to eat causeIHAVETOMAKETHEMONEYLASTFORTHREEMOREMONTHSYikes How I envied the Eurotrash who could just sit by the hostel pool and read all day But if I didn t do everything then I would have failed at traveling In retrospect Australia was a turning point in my young life I had no idea that this go go go attitude was how I had been living for years No wonder people thought I was uptight Relaxing had never come easy to me and it never will but I m getting a lot better at letting go and not worrying about seeing every last museum so to speakGilbert ruminates on this topic uite a bit in her book Her first moment of true unfettered happiness comes when she poaches some eggs and eats some asparagus on the floor of her apartment So simple but so fulfillingIn India she writes that life if you keep chasing it so hard will drive you to death Gilbert is living in an Ashram a place where people come to meditate and experience divinity She s not very good at it and she wonders if all the energy she s spent chasing the next experience has kept her from enjoying anything At this point in the book I find myself wondering if Gilbert wants to be there at all Perhaps going to an Ashram was the thing she thought she should do not what she wanted to do I sure as hell wouldn tWhat I really love about Eat Pray Love is that it s all about asking the simple uestion what do I want a uestion that would have come in handy in Australia and numerous other times in my life It s so hard for some people including me and it really shouldn t be I think that when you can honestly answer that uestion No I don t want to go to that discussion on post modernism even though I realize that I should be interested in it and it would make me a lot cooler in your eyes Really I just want to watch back to back episodes of Scrubs you re well on your way to realizing your own identity and being ok with whoever that person is

characters ä Eat Pray Love Am und schließlich die glückliche Balance zwischen innerem und äußerem Glück auf Bal. I found this book unbelievably phoneyI hated this so much that I got up early this morning to finish it and gave my copy to the library and honestly I m not too proud of thatTo me it just felt so insincere that there s no chance I would have made it past the second chapter had it not been for book club obligationsI enjoyed her writing style but I absolutely could not warm to her at all To be fair I do think she would be an excellent travel writerThe section on India was agony to read I have met enough people freshly returned from Indian ashrams to know that they often seem a tad self absorbed and I also suspect that they really only get up at 3am so that they have even me time She didn t do much to alter my opinionHonestly this woman meditated longer harder and bluer than anyone else has past or present She won the meditation competition that no one was actually having Possibly it was not enlightenment that she found but simply that she finally became completely self absorbed Easy mistake to make
