Book Review: Eat, Pray, Love

Posted by AfroElle On 3:33 AM
I ignored this book last year when I saw it at a book stand because I ignorantly thought it was about food. Fast forward to this year, I wish I had bought Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. It has received great reviews. Neefemi, a wonderful Nigerian writer and blogger at Diary of an Unpaid Intern , just finished reading this book, here is her review of it.

In Italy she makes friends, eats so much food which she describes so well you can almost taste and smell and in the process learns to speak Italian. In India she finds a deeper connection with God, learns how to meditate, and gets over her problem with depression. In Indonesia she finds funds for a woman and her three kids to build a house they so desperately need; she studies at the feet of an Indonesian medicine man and finds a Brazilian lover.
Eat, Pray, Love is a book about one woman’s journey to find herself through her travels across Italy, India and Indonesia. Elizabeth Gilbert author and main character in this story starts of as an unhappy married woman, writer and traveler who one day finds God and this begins the changes in her life. It took a two year tumultuous divorce battle, a terrible relationship in the arms of a lover and advice from a Balinese medicine man, for her to take the bold decision to leave the suburbs of New York and give up her life as she knew it.
From beginning to end, this book is a story of love; love of God, love of self, love of others, love of food, love of language. The message in this book is simple, whatever way, however you choose to live, FIND GOD; this is the only true way to find true everlasting happiness and powerful love.

Here are some notable words from the book;
''True balance is never letting anybody love you less than you love yourself.'
'Why have I been chasing happiness my whole life when bliss was here the entire time?'
'At some point, you've gotta let go & sit still & allow contentment to come to you'
I highly recommend this book and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
