    Inhaltsangabe

    Around the time Elizabeth Gilbert turned 30, she went through an early-onslaught midlife crisis. She had everything an educated, ambitious American woman was supposed to want: a husband, a house, a successful career. But instead of feeling happy and fulfilled, she was consumed with panic, grief, and confusion. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be.

    To recover from all this, Gilbert took a radical step. In order to give herself the time and space to find out who she really was and what she really wanted, she got rid of her belongings, quit her job, and undertook a yearlong journey around the world, all alone. Eat, Pray, Love is the absorbing chronicle of that year. Her aim was to visit three places where she could examine one aspect of her own nature set against the backdrop of a culture that has traditionally done that one thing very well. In Rome, she studied the art of pleasure, learning to speak Italian and gaining the 23 happiest pounds of her life. India was for the art of devotion, and with the help of a native guru and a surprisingly wise cowboy from Texas, she embarked on four uninterrupted months of spiritual exploration. In Bali, she studied the art of balance between worldly enjoyment and divine transcendence. She became the pupil of an elderly medicine man and also fell in love the best way, unexpectedly.

    An intensely articulate and moving memoir of self-discovery, Eat, Pray, Love is about what can happen when you claim responsibility for your own contentment and stop trying to live in imitation of society's ideals. It is certain to touch anyone who has ever woken up to the unrelenting need for change.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "The author's reading of this memoir adds depth; she's obviously not a professional narrator, but her vocal presence provides vivid color and quirky humor as she eats (in Italy), prays (in India), and finds love (in Indonesia). This is a delightful memoir that explores exotic countries as well as the author's heart and soul." (AudioFile magazine)

    "Sustaining a chatty, conspiratorial tone, Gilbert fully engages readers in the year's cultural and emotional tapestry, conveying rapture with infectious brio, recalling anguish with touching candor, as she details her exotic tableau with history, anecdote and impression." (Publishers Weekly

    "Gilbert's sensuous and audacious spiritual odyssey is as deeply pleasurable as it is enlightening." (Booklist

    Wunderbar

    Leicht, tief, lustig, ernst und so, so, so lehrreich. Ein Buch das ich alle zwei Jahre wieder hören kann und meinem persönlichen Entwicklungsstand entsprechend immer wieder etwas neues daraus lerne.

    I'd like to give this -1 points

    This a dull, basic and predictable memoir of a middle class American who, after blaming her husband for her conventional lifestyle, divorces him and sets off on a self-indulgent year away. The self-righteous "I deserve it all" narrative, the insulting cultural stereotypes and even more insulting imitations of Indian and Indonesian accents, and incessant whining of "Omg I'm a divorcee, I'm gonna cry on the floor again" is soooooo incredibly tedious and cringe-worthy. The authors life revolves around men making her whole and when she doesn't have them wrapped around her little fingers, because god forbid they have lives beyond her, she looks to God who answers all her prayers. For all the meditating and praying she does, she still winds up tricking and forcing an Indonesian into buying a house with the money she gives her, assuming that money will fix everything. Oh and of course (spoilers) the hot Brazilian was I to her and she never even knew. ohhhh happy ending, now she has a man in her life again her little world is happy and complete.
    Tl;dr - This book sucks!
