Eat Pray Love - Book Review

Have you read that book yet? If not why not? Are you at least thinking about reading it? Well you need to be. You should be.

I had heard about the book sometime ago, and then more recently someone recommended that I read the book. I went to my local Barnes & Noble and checked it out and decided I had to get it. It was one of those books I couldn't put down. It was one of those books I tried to make time to be able to read it, because I loved it so much.

OK. . . so a little about this book so that you will realize that you not only should get and read this book but NEED to read this book. I seriously think that every woman on this planet needs to read this book at some point in their life. This book was written by a woman in her mid 30's who traveled to 3 different countries and wrote about her experiences during that time.

Eat = Italy
Pray = India
Love - Indonesia

Whether you are going through the same situation or have gone through them, or you may have something similar that you can relate to. She was able to take a year off and travel to those 3 countries spending 4 months in each country. I know how wonderful would that be? Since she is a writer she ended up getting an advance to write her next book... hence this was her next book. And a great one at that!

She had gone through a horrible divorce. It took an extreme amount of time to get settled and she felt she needed to get away and have some "me" time. She had always wanted to go to Italy to learn to speak Italian. She went to Italy and learned Italian and traveled all over Italy and met many different people. She went to India and studied meditation and prayer. She became one with GOD. It was different then she ever expected but she learned allot. She finally made it to Indonesia and studied a different type of meditation, traveled all over Indonesia, met a ton of wonderful people and discovered what Love is really all about. She lets you into her life a bit before she starts travelling and what brought her to this point in her life. She is a real person like any of us and takes matters into her own hands that many of us need to but always seem to make excuses for.

I seriously hope that this makes you want to go out and purchase the book. You will learn so much about yourself and others around you, you will be amazed. For your convenience I attached some links to help you make your purchase!
