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.
Unfortunately I did not enjoy this book and i really thought I would. I could not get into it at all. I did not even finish it. I just couldn't.
i think this book is not for everyone. i really enjoyed the story of personal travel and finding yourself when you don't expect to.
I love this book. I absolutely hated the movie though. I thought the that the author was doing something that I would love to have the opportunity to do but could never afford to do.
I had a hard time getting through this book. It was very slow going.
Started reading this book but was a very slow read. Did not enjoy it.
Starting out I enjoyed this book however somewhere in reading it started to lose my interest. It seems that it took me twice as long to read this book than any other book.
I liked it ok, I kept feeling like it was going in circles and not really changing all that much. I was hoping to love it so much I would want to read it again or even want to read the next one. But it didn't grab my attention that much!
The Movie was pretty good, the book was ok.. Usually it is the other way around for me. I always seem to enjoy the book more than the movie, however this was not the case.
This book was so boring, I could not even finish it. I have to say, the movie is much better then the book.
I think that this book is interesting depending on where you are in your life. My younger co-worker hated this book whereas I could relate to her issues with her husband and with trying to find herself and to find meaning in her life. I thoroughly enjoyed the Italy section. It was fun, light and vibrant. The part in India is much harder to get through but I think she learns a lot in that section and it's a person education. It might not click with everyone. I would recommend it to my friends who are in a quandary about their lives.
I am an avid reader and was really looking forward to reading this book. I found it really hard to get involved in I never made it past the first chapter it just didn't grab my interest.
I typically gravitate towards memoirs but this book was utterly terrible. I felt like the author was whiney and ungrateful. There are so many other great motivational books- skip this one.
I really enjoyed the story and the point of view of this book. It is actually inspiring to me even though I haven't been through all of her struggles, I still related to her. I found myself hoping to help and wanting to hug her.
Couldn't even finish the book....a lot of hype but it didn't live up to it!
