    One thought on “Comer, Orar, Amar”

    1. Wow, this book took me on a roller coaster ride I couldn t decide if I loved it or hated it and it seemed like every few pages I d go from thinking Gilbert was delightfully witty to thinking this was the most horribly self absorbed person to ever set foot on the earth In the end the overall effect was rather like sitting at a party listening to someone tell a long involved story all about themselves, and you re alternately annoyed and fascinated and you want to get up and leave but she s just so [...]

    2. WHY I cringe to think why so many women want to feel that this was a true spiritual journey It was a pre paid journey The woman starts off with telling us over and over about how painful her divorce was, however she dismisses how it ever came to be that way Leaving her audience only to guess it was so horrible she had to leave and find herself.When asked in an interview if dumping her husband and pushing off wasn t selfish, here is what Ms Gilbert had to say What is it about the American obsessi [...]

    3. Eat Pray Love is the monologue of a Neurotic American Princess Liz in her mid thirties The first few chapters background the rest of the book, a confessional that tells how she came to find her 8 year marriage distasteful, realised she wasn t keen on the next logical step which is apparently to fill her expansive apartment with children, and plunges into an impotent depression Without even getting drunk.One night, whilst bawling on the bathroom floor, a habit she has grown fond of, she is struck [...]

    4. Don t bother with this book.It took me nearly a year to finish it I was so disgusted by the writer s apparent lack of awareness of her own privilege, her trite observations, and the unbelievably shallow way in which she represents a journey initiated by grief, that I initially couldn t bear to read beyond Italy Like others who have written here, I made myself pick the book up again because so many people have raved about it, and I made myself finish it, hoping all the while there would be some r [...]

    5. I am embarrassed to read this book in public The title and the flowery, pasta y cover screams, I m a book that contains the relentless rants of a neurotic 34 year old woman So, I m afraid that the strangers on the Metro will think I identify with her.But in the comfort of my own bed, I am totally falling for this memoir Yes, Gilbert is emotionally self indulgent are we supposed to feel bad that she lost both houses in the divorce , annoying she s just tickled when she gains 23 pounds after eatin [...]

    6. So today I was watching TLC s My Strange Addiction, featuring a woman who had an addiction to using baby wipes She used up to 500 of them a day, and that adds up to about 4,500,000 wipes since her addiction began.The woman, Rhia, would use the wipes to clean herself because she had a learned fear of the shower This stemmed from her being horribly abused in her youth, wherein the terrible things that were done to her were preceded by and ended with a shower This debilitating situation that this p [...]

    7. This was one of those books I will read over and over again All those cynics out there who criticize Gilbert for writing a too cutesy memoir that seems beyond belief and who claim that she is selfish for leaving her responsibility are clearly missing the point First, she did not write the book to inspire you She wrote it as her own memoir you can agree or disagree with how she went about her enlightenment, but you cannot judge her for how she found happiness It is her memoir, not yours You can a [...]

    8. I found this book unbelievably phoney.I hated this so much that I got up early this morning to finish it and gave my copy to the library and honestly, I m not too proud of that.To me it just felt so insincere that there s no chance I would have made it past the second chapter had it not been for book club obligations.I enjoyed her writing style, but I absolutely could not warm to her at all To be fair, I do think she would be an excellent travel writer.The section on India was agony to read I ha [...]

    9. Shallow, self indulgent and mired in the sort of liberal American obsession with oriental exoticism that is uniquely offensive because it is treated as enobling by its purveyors She treats the rest of the world as though it exists for the consumption of jaded, rich, white Americans and this book is a monument to that sort of arrogance and ignorance.

    10. Ok, I admit I still have about 30 pages to go, which I will get around to reading soon need a break from the book though and which I highly doubt will prompt me to change my 2 star rating I know many people love this book for what I consider personal reasons, therefore I tread lightly so as to not come off as critical of people s personal opinions, rather, just the book itself First, I found the author not so likable I ve read other readers reviews in which she was described as so funny and like [...]

    11. Gilbert points out that each country she visits begins with I , so her journey is really a journey to the self, blah blah blah But the whiff of narcissism in the I I I pattern is no whiff It s a hurricane Who brings copies of her OWN BOOKS to her psychiatrist, cause she wants him to HELP her, but not ruin her book writing ability, cause, you know, she s special that way Oh, well I hope no one hates me for reading an Oprah endorsed book I had reservations about this book before I even read it, so [...]

    12. What I m about to say must be wrong, because I couldn t get through this book I tried And I failed So I have NO BUSINESS WRITING THIS Don t read it.A cousin recommended EPL and I thought it would teach me something about the book market My secret boyfriend at the public library was horrified I checked it out, given his ACLU offensive intimacy with my record and tastes and yes, like others, I was embarrassed to have EPL in my possession.Because What IS this MOVEMENT of lily white bourgeois women [...]

    13. Ok I really didn t READ it all I couldn t I just couldn t get past how self centered and whiny this woman was I just wanted to scream GET OVER YOURSELF Then I quit reading it and now I feel much better.

    14. I have copied this from a blog I wrote a few weeks ago I ve recently given in I normally don t go for the Oprah style self help mumbo jumbo However, the hype surrounding Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert was just too frenzied to ignore So I gave in and read the book Eat, Pray, Love is about one woman s search for everything across Italy, India and blah, blah, blah, do we really care Liz starts out in the first chapter by making me smirk She is sitting across from a real Italian Stallion at a [...]

    15. I just kept thinking wahhhhhh the whole time Poor woman wants out of her marriage so she leaves wahhhh Poor woman is depressed so she whines wahhhhh Life is so unfair for the poor woman wahhhh.Please, poor woman is completely lost so what does she do Why she takes a year off and travels to Italy, India Indonesia to try and find herself I wish I could say that this was fiction but it isn t She s lost Join the club but at least you have the money and the lack of responsibility to travel for an ent [...]

    16. I waited, and waited, in ever such impatient patience, until the duct taped box from my daughter arrived It was one box among many, but this particular box, she had promised, would have within it her very best and most loved books, and among those Elizabeth Gilbert s Eat, Pray, Love that I had been longing to read All of these boxes were arriving at my door because my daughter was taking wing on a journey like none before, and she is, for her 26 years, well traveled even when measured against ad [...]

    17. I don t think I ve ever disliked an author than Elizabeth Gilbert Gilbert has the emotional maturity of an insecure teenage girl In Eat Pray Love, she comes off as completely self centered We all have been stressed at particular moments in our lives But no one so than Elizabeth Gilbert She got to leave reality for a while After she ate, and prayed, she met some amazing guy who she fell in love with, then, she got a book deal But wait, it gets even better she got to meet Oprah Her life was comp [...]

    18. Reading the title and the premise of this book will mislead you greatly as to what you are going to find inside.This book is not uplifting or spiritual in any way Elizabeth Gilbert is going through life unaffected by anything except her own whims She is so selfish and self congratulating, trying to disguise it as self depreciating and humble Her writing style isn t so bad, it s the content She continuously looks out at the world and how it is affecting her, not accepting responsibility for creat [...]

    19. Wow I just gave Eat, Pray, Love a tearful send off And now I will relate to you the reasons why.The book has helped me come to terms with the fact that this whole divorce healing process is taking so long, longer than any of my friends expected I think, and that it s not over But even so, it s OK I can still live my life and do new things and make new friends and still work through it I m not cheating anyone by giving them what I ve got right now, as opposed to the miracle woman that I think I s [...]

    20. Elizabeth Gilbert is a really good writer but I still had to absolutely slog through to the end of her annoying book I did so with the faint hope that maybe there would be some last minute clue about all the hype or that maybe Gilbert would finally wake up one morning and say Hey, maybe it s not all about me No such luck Her perspective is shallow, completely self absorbed and lacking in empathy The spiritual part of her quest never translates to any feelings of compassion or altruism Gilbert sp [...]

    21. this was beautiful and long journey between Italy , India , Indonesia i learned a lot of things in this book was amazing and a little boring for me i loved Italy part than India and Indonesia but it s good book over all and happy to read it

    22. I had a very love give me a break relationship with this book, so I had to give it a week or so before writing a review to let it settle I began the book on an optimistic note, then quickly became annoyed with the long, rambling chapters justifying the author s use of the word God and how OTHER words for God are neither better nor worse, nor less accurate, than God but this author feels a connection with the word God so she s going to use it here but REALLY, there are LOTS of ways to express th [...]

    23. Oh, you spent a year in India Well, have you read that book Eat, Pray, Love She was in India, too You d love it If I can forgive Elizabeth Gilbert for being paid upfront to undertake a journey of self discovery and I can sign me up for Clueless in Calcutta , then certainly, she can forgive me for only reading this because I felt obligated to do so And for riding her coattails in this review, so to speak Her style is pretty easy to get into, although I was completely fed up with her sense of humo [...]

    24. I know I m a minority here, but I m disappointed by this book, i think the movie was way better Julia Roberts has done an amazing job the Book starts off with Elizabeth Gilbert telling us over and over about how painful her divorce was, and how she had everything a modern American woman was supposed to want husband, country home, successful career, but instead of feeling happy and fulfilled, she felt consumed by panic and confusion my first thoughts were,God you re such ungrateful,unappreciative [...]

    25. When I first heard the premise of Eat, Pray, Love a woman s journey after a series of personal hardships to find peace and happiness across three countries I thought it was going to be a solemn retelling of the pilgrimage like voyage in the likes of Paulo Coelho Of course I was wrong Elizabeth Gilbert tells an honest story which starts with the quote Tell the truth, tell the truth, tell the truth of her emotional and psychological breakdown after a harrowing divorce and a whirlwind romance Embar [...]

    26. What a patronizing, racist, unintelligent melodrama Eat, Pray, Love is the story of a woman with no problems, who goes on a pre paid vacation to Italy, India and Bali in order to find some meaning in her life after a messy divorce which we only know was horrible, even though the reason for the divorce are never given As I mentioned before I hate to use the term white people problems , but Liz s story is the definition of this She decides in her 30 s that she doesn t want to have children and tha [...]
