Eat Pray... What Now?

I have tried not just once but twice to read Peace Joy Harmony. Or, wait... it's Love Peace... no, oh Eat Pray Love.

I don't know what my problem is.

The women in my family loved this story. I've heard wonderful things about this book. They've made a movie with Julia Roberts in the lead for crying out loud. Why can't I get through it?

I've made it through the "Eat" part in Italy. I got through 4 pages of "Pray"... and that was a month ago.

I don't know why but I feel I should finish this book. Finish what I start, right?

Here I go.

  1. ok listen, i loved the book because of the locations, and her travels. at the same time, i did get kinda tired of her "whoa is me, I'm divorced" stuff." I mean come on how many women get divorced and have the money to pick up and travel the world. most women get divorced and don't have a pot to piss in.....so i don't feel bad for her. and the self-deprecating parts of the book jhust make you a little sick don't they? maybe that is your blockage. I hear her second book, there is just as much whining....

  2. I must be the only person who HATED that book. And I like memoirs too, so I was surprised by how much I didn't like it. I thought her writing was way too indulgent, I was able to skip pages, then paragraphs, and didn't feel like I missed a thing. Eventually I didn't bother reading on.
    So it might be the book, not you! :)

  4. I could relate in a way to the author's journey, but felt the story moved a bit slowly. I managed to get through most of it, but have to admit...I didn't finish the book. I might try books on tape--that might help me stay focused. I want to finish it before seeing the movie!

  5. I'm a person who tends to not always fall in love with everything all of America or all women or Oprah love. So if it just doesn't pull you in, don't read it.

    My SIL is obsessed with that author and met her at a book signing.

  6. I read it in a sitting. I loved the book because I too was going through a journey. I however did not have the money or the courage to spend a year in Italy gaining 45 pounds, I did that with Hagen Daas, spend a year praying, I did that on my knees by my bed or a year in Bali finding love, I did that in Socal.

    Do this. Put the book in your car. Read paragraphs while waiting in the drive-through. While waiting for the kids to get finished with soccer practice. Don't force it just take it with you and read while you wait.

  7. I loved that book but it certainly isn't for everyone.

  8. I liked the journeys in the book and how she was so great at describing everything she experienced. I'm not sure what I thought about the first part & all the divorce stuff...maybe since I'm not divorced that part wasn't for me. But I do think it's a worthwhile book to read. Good Luck, maybe it's something you should read laying in a chair at the beach with a cocktail (and a warm blanket if you're near here...)
