Book Review: “Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia” by Liz Gilbert

A DVD review was done a couple of months ago. Click here. But this review is on her audiobook.

I listened to this audiobook after watching the DVD movie of the same subject. I must say Liz Gilbert is incredible in her use of metaphors in her writing – very impactful. Some Amazon reviewers complained about her whining of her divorces and circumstances. I found it very therapeutic having been through the same things before. Her voice in the audiobook is soothing and at times emotional – like someone’s telling a mesmerizing story. The words of book reveal more than the movie as you cannot “read” the emotional undertone of the actions, despite Julia Robert’s great acting.

There are some understandable discrepancies/omissions between the movies and the book. The author possessed great writing and speaking skills. I enjoyed listening to this book.
