Description

The 10th anniversary edition of one of the most iconic, beloved, and bestselling books of our time.

Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love touched the world and changed countless lives, inspiring and empowering millions of readers to search for their own best selves. Now, this beloved and iconic book returns in a beautiful 10th anniversary edition, complete with an updated introduction from the author, to launch a whole new generation of fans.
 
In her early thirties, Elizabeth Gilbert had everything a modern American woman was supposed to want—husband, country home, successful career—but instead of feeling happy and fulfilled, she was consumed by panic and confusion. This wise and rapturous book is the story of how she left behind all these outward marks of success, and set out to explore three different aspects of her nature, against the backdrop of three different cultures: pleasure in Italy, devotion in India, and on the Indonesian island of Bali, a balance between worldly enjoyment and divine transcendence.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    Other than school textbooks, I've never highlighted book pages. This one I did. There were some inspiring quotes and bits of history that I just wanted to be able to reread easily. I'm so in love with this book. I really took my time reading it, enjoying it. Was quite sad when I finished. The way Ms.Gilbert writes just encapsulates you, makes you laugh, cry and live through her words. It wasn't just about her journey, but each place she visited, she taught you history of how it came to be. Taught it in a way that was interesting, that you'd want to learn more. This isn't just a book that you read and discard, it's like a guide book for the way life should be appreciated, respected and loved because this planet has so much to offer sometimes you just gotta take that leap! I will say this, finished this book yesterday and then watched the movie and I thought the movie was AWEFUL. It was rushed, left out a HUGE key character in my opinion and changed some things up in a disappointing way so I recommend READING THIS BOOK FIRST. Or maybe see the movie first so you'll be that much more engulfed in the book.

    While it's a great story by itself, it's almost like a hidden guide for relating, and dealing with one's own depression. I don't think I could have gotten through last year without knowing that I wasn't the only one who felt that way...

    The movie does not do it justice. What a journey through the darkness and into the light. Truly inspired to “keep on keeping on”. Love and Light...

    She ate, she prayed, she loved...title says it all. I didn't like that it started off on a negative tone right off the bat...about not wanting babies and wanting out of her marriage. Maybe a little background at first would of been a better start. Some good highlights through out, but it was kind of boring. I really had to try hard to make myself finish it. The best chapters are about the last three or so. Maybe the movie is better, which you never hear anyone say, but just wasn't that into this one.
  • Excellent. Empowering.

    One of the best books I have ever read. Again and again. Each time uncovering a new facet of myself. Well written. Entertaining. Subtly teaching.
