Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia

Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesiaby Elizabeth Gilbert explores the author’s journey across the world (and the self, natch) following a protracted divorce. Trying to find yourself is never easy, particularly if you have jet lag. From what these reviewers say, she seems to have found herself but never anyone else:

She is the most vapid, narcicistic, insecure, self-absorbed, spoiled brat I have ever had to listen to. I could not wait to get her whiny, foolish voice out of my head.

…and:

This is the type of person you meet at a cocktail party and RUN in the other direction after a few minutes when she starts spewing out all her problems at you with no end in sight. Note to the author: I am your reader, not your psychotherapist.

…and:

Pure drivel that reinforces my theory that a “good” agent can get even the worst of stories published.

…and:

I started rolling my eyes on the second page and pretty much didn’t stop rolling them until I stopped reading.

…and:

Does the world really need a field guide for selfishness? Can’t they just watch a few minutes of Joel Osteen?

…and this reviewer, who manages to find the books hidden theme:

Isn’t it ironic that the three countries that the author traveled begin with the letter “I” as did nearly every sentence in the book? What a sex-crazed narcisist!
