Book Pretty good book,could been better in many,many ways.But it's good for a bedtimevbook,to bore you to sleep aleast.
As an English, I could find almost no literary value in this book. As an avid chick-lit reader, I had even more trouble with it. The main character is so self-involved and doesn't engage the reader whatsoever. She feels all too important and talks in cliches. Instead of empowering women, I feel like she stepped into stereotypes that otherwise could have been avoided.
i had a hard time finishing this book. Maybe a shortened version would have improved it. And I thought the movie just as repetitive & boring. With all the hype i wanted to enjoy it but that didnt happen
I absolutely loved this book. I enjoy a good back that I can relate to the world around me as well as one that can keep me hooked - even through rough sections of the story. This book did it all. I would recommend this for a good beach read!
I agree with cammith. i was not impressed. I had to force myself to read it.
I felt I should offer a review of this book since I seem to be one of the few that DISLIKED this book. BLAK! Thought it was so boring and shallow. Because this woman is bored with her life and unable to find happiness in anything around her, she travels to other far away places to escape. Yes, she has some adventure but does that really provide a lasting happiness? I thought she was immature and shallow. There's my opinion... and that's what it is.. MY OPINION.
Loved this book! Character Main protagonist developed and had significant changes throughout. Also found the plot appealing. Must confess I think the movie ruined it.
I thought this was just ok. I thought it was upity and didn't really care for it.
This book has received great reviews but I thought it was so-so; I skipped half of the section on Italy because it was not interesting to me. All the whining and crying about her failed marriage wore a little thin. The sections on India and Indonesia were a little more appealing. And, I really did not need/want to know the details of her bladder infection after several encounters with her new boyfriend . . .
I really enjoyed this book. It was an easy read that takes you along with the story of her personal journey and rediscovering herself. By knowing herself better she opened up again to the next things in life, like loving again.
I saw the movie first and loved it...I liked the book but not as well as the movie which is usually the opposite with me.
I listened to the audio book version of this book(read by the author) while I road the trains around Japan. It was wonderful. Her reading of it made the story that much more alive.
I really enjoyed this book!!! Although I didn't like the movie at all!
I really enjoyed this book and i did like the book better than the movie but i always do :) Its a great journey.I wish i were able to give that gift of time to myself!
i liked this book and the movie but the movie was better since it showed bali and the yoga retreat where elizabeth met the cool guy from texas.
