My Thoughts: These are the true events of love lost/gained, inner peace found and food enjoyed (not necessarily in that order) by author Elizabeth Gilbert.

My favorite parts were the time spent at the Buddhist temple and the scenes with her friends while she collected money to buy a new home/work space. The least interesting was the mentioning of the different romances in her life. I felt like that was the back story, and the main thing was that she learned to be herself.

I enjoyed much of this book, even though the author and I have different thoughts on life and love.  In fact, I did not realize until I read this book what I thought of certain things.

I've been wanting to read this as well. I have it on my shelf and I'm anxious to see the movie but I want to read it first. I think I've been holding off because I'm afraid I won't like it!
