"It's what I'm giving all my girl friends." - Julia Roberts.
"If a more likeable writer than Gilbert is currently in print, I haven't found him or her...Gilbert's prose is fuelled by a mix of intelligence, wit and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible, and makes the reader only too glad to join the posse of friends and devotees who have the pleasure of listening in." - New York Times Book Review.
"A probing, thoughtful title with a free and easy style, this work seamlessly blends history and travel for a very enjoyable read. Highly recommended." - Library Journal (starred review).
"Every woman should read it." - Elle Macpherson.
"Elizabeth Gilbert was a 30-year-old successful journalist with a perfect life (husband, fancy New York City apartment, fabulous weekend home) when she realized she was miserable. After surviving an acrimonious divorce,
Gilbert sold her remaining possessions to spend a year abroad-four months each in three countries with nothing in common except starting with the letter "I." 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, 2006

Comments about Eat, Pray, Love:
What makes this an exceptional book to listen to is that it is read by Elizabeth Gilbert herself. She has a most beautiful, well modulated and calming voice that engages on an emotive level. I didn't read the book or see the movie but having listened to this in her own words I cant imagine either would be comparable. Definitely read this if you are looking to understand how to bring calm reflection into your life.
