Eat, Pray, Love

by Elizabeth Gilbert, 2006

This book is all about a very emotional young woman and her attempts to find peace and happiness in her life.  I found myself wondering why she was so off the chart in her approach to life until a few chapters into the book she revealed that she was on medication and in therapy for her psychological problems.  I think that explained a lot.

As I read further, I found her story to not be all that interesting, but for some reason, it held my attention and the book overall was a pretty good read.  As she progressed on her journies, she seemed to calm down considerably and regained a lot of the balance she had been seeking.  I think it was the progress she made and the process she was using that caused me to continue reading.  After finishing the book, I felt that it was worthwhile and I was not disappointed.  3 1/2 stars
