Dorothy Berta

I read this book a few weeks ago. I absolutely loved it. I read it and then I couldn't stop thinking about it. I highly recommend it.

Barbara

Dorothy - Thanks for the comment.

Adrienne Coppola

I gave this book to another writer for Christmas after I read a good review. She loved it and gave it back to me. I just started reading it, I'm in Italy, the first section, and I'm really enjoying it.

Adrienne - Lucky you. You still have India and Indonesia to go. (My husband is reading it too and last night said to me: "I'm about to leave Italy.")

Loved this book! I have to say that it's the first book (in many years) that I couldn't put down. I think that Elizabeth Gilbert has a wonderful ability to combine spiritual topics with real-life and make them enchanting and believable at the same time. I went to the website to check out the pictures, and was a little disappointed. What I had conjured up in my imagination didn't match what I saw. I would recommend this book to anyone with an open mind and spirit.
