We must also share a love of reading, I think the book is always better. Take care. I absolutely loved the book especially Liz's experiences with meditation and living in an ashram. I have experienced that stage- meditations and living in an ashram and it's quite tough in the beginning. I know what you mean, I almost always like the book better than the movie. I did see the movie about a year after I read the book. It was OK, but just that. I think for me it was the part about Liz's trips to the ashrams and meditation practice that most interested me, as I practice myself.
The author actually is a sports writer who usually writes about men in sports, so considering that, she did a good job with Liz. In the movie, the husband seemed to be a Peter Pan. Thanks for visiting. For this book, I actually liked the movie more than the book. Which very rarely happens for me.
Eat, Pray, Love
I was not very impressed with the book at all unfortunately, but thank you for a well written good review about the book! It is still not my favorite, but it did make me think again about some of the things in the book, and giving it a bit of a "second chance" for a while :. Thanks for the compliment on the hub.
As I said, people loved or hated this book, no in between. I liked the part in the Ashram in India best, it got me meditating again! I guess Liz was pushing her feelings away, and big time! She says it felt like another person going to Home Depot, so excited about furnishing their 2nd home in the country. Serious money there too. She does admit to deep depression and was on medication. It's hard to get out of a marriage, especially a long one, when all your money is tied together, or kids are involved. So at least they realized it early on. I thought the guy was a drifter sort.
I saw the movie, and it did suck. But in it, he's changing jobs again, and decided to go back to school. She was supporting them both. When you are first in love that's romantic sounding, but it gets old fast. Most people don't get a paid year to heal though, she really is a lucky person. Maybe she has good karma?
Welcome to my website
She is a good writer, and a good speaker, she has a few things on YouTube, as now people ask how can she follow up EPL in her career? Committed wasn't that good. To be honest, I think your review made the book seemed much more interesting. I myself find the book unbearable in the middle of it as I don't understand why she suddenly stopped wanting to be married? Don't bother watching the movie! I don't know, I just don't get the book at all. Though I must say she is definitely really lucky to be able to get that break of a year doing nothing!
Well, then you had the experience, which is better. It hard to write a book, now you don't have to bother :. I read the hub about your spiritual teachers, it was good and made me want to go on a retreat. No Jean, I didn't mean that I actually wrote the book-yet. I had the idea to do a book about my spiritual growth and the places that I had travelled to. I had gone to Alaska, met a man who introduced me to a particular spiritual teacher wrote a hub about the spiritual teachers I met and got into a relationship with him.
We moved to California for awhile and where I was involved with another spiritual school. They felt it was a similar story. You wrote your own book? I hope you try to get it published. We are all on our own journeys. I also wrote one of emotive prose or poetry to teach people how to read the Rider Waite tarot. It's such a niche topic, and I am now sending out another batch of query letters. I don't want to pay to have it published, I wanted to be a writer, and guess I need the validation.
But I bet your book is good. I loved the part where she's in India.

Plus many can't just go thru a bad divorce and bop around the world for a year to heal, then fall in love again, having someone to lean on. Liz was lucky with money, even when she lost it, she found more.
Jean-I have yet to read the book, although my two wonderful daughters gave me a copy as a birthday present one year because it reminded them of me I was supposed to have been the one who wrote all of the insights during the journey on my own spiritual quest and before one word of my memoir came out there was E. Well, that's my story and I am sure that I am missing a very good book, but thus far-still sits on my shelf. The movie isn't as good as the book, although Julia Roberts plays the part well, and my son even watched it with me and said it wasn't bad if you need a guy's view.
If you like to read you may get more out of the book. It motivated me to begin meditation again. My fave part was the one that takes place in India, where "Liz" takes her one third year to explore her spirituality. I've been reading your music hubs, you are quite knowledgeable. Have you played the piano long? When I saw the trailors for this movie, I said to myself, this is a chick-flick. However, after reading your hub, I think I'm going to watch it.

Thank you for visiting Deborah. I love the part about India the best. I think people settle for less in their lives more than we realize, and was happy and inspired that Liz found the strength and will to get out of a life that did not make her happy or fulfilled.
City of Girls
From what I here, it's too bad the movie didn't pick up on that. This is a great review of one of my favorite books. The first time I read this book, I realized that I could indeed leave an abusive marriage. I am rereading it, and still find it moving and profound. Haven't seen the movie yet. Thanks for a great write up. My experience is the opposite, I read the book, but still haven't seen the movie. Usually a movie doesn't measure up to a book for me.
But I am disappointed to hear that this one fails to make real the search to find wholeness that eludes Liz for so long. I liked the story, so I won't watch the movie! I think you would like the book, it is very descriptive and her search is portrayed there as a very earnest one which struck a chord with me--hence the review! I've not read the book but watched the movie. Apparently the movie does no justice to the book which was well read and enjoyed by many. The movie reviews were not good.
I think rightly so in light of how it didn't portray deeply enough Liz and her desire to seek something different and hopefully more fulfilling in her life which felt lacking if not empty. That is something many many many people go through, only a handful will do something about it. Hollywood failed to get depth, but as an easy watch movie it is fine but don't expect it to change your life. Other product and company names shown may be trademarks of their respective owners.
