Book Review: Eat, Pray, Love

Over the Break I read the book Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. This book is a true story about a woman in her early 30s who goes on a spiritual journey around the world. The main character, Liz, finds herself in an emotional rut while trapped in a loveless marriage. Liz then begins to become deeply depressed with no hope for happiness. She had always seen herself as a person with a strong sense of self and independence, but somewhere along the way of growing into and adult and settling down, she lost that sense. Liz decides she does not need a husband in order to find her self and to be happy. As a result of this, she divorces her husband and travels to Italy to pursue pleasure, India to pursue devotion, and Bali to pursue balance. The message I gathered from the book is that there are always more places to see, people to met, and things to learn, and therefore there is always hope.
