Eat Pray Love

Ok so here is the first book I've completed in the last while (other than the twilight series... no judgement please. lol)

I have now read the book and watched the movie. The movie is a good watch though don't expect anything profound, it's your regular hollywood entertainment.

The book however is another story. It took me forever to get through because she rambles... ALOT. That being said though she makes some very valid points. So much so that I ripped two pages out to carry with me.. TWO whole pages. And for me this is a huge deal. A little part of me cried as I tore out page one, I will mark up my books, write notes in them, but never, NEVER rip one out. If a cover gets torn I get upset and here I am ripping actual pages out.

Over all I highly recommend the book for anyone going through a breakup or divorce but I strongly believe that everyone will take different things out of it. Be forewarned though if you are not into great detailed explanation of the history of places or things be prepared to skim a lot of the book. But buried in all the detail and description are some great insights. I personally walked away with a new perspective on a soul mate as well as kind of a definition of how I perceive my partners.

For those of you that have read the book (not the movie because I personally didn't receive anything from the movie) I'd be interested in knowing what you got out of it, as well any suggestions on what I should read next?

Thanks for reminding me why I WILL be reading this book. It was on tv the other day... the movie... and I caught it part way through... I fell asleep thinking I would watch it from the start... another day.. But will read the book first :)

Thanks for your comment. It did help me come to a couple realizations. I now carry those two pages in my wallet. Hope it helps you too. I'd love to know what you think once you've read it. :)
