LoveReading View on Eat Pray Love

A beautiful new limited edition paperback of Eat Pray Love, published as part of the Bloomsbury Modern Classics listTo travel is worth any cost or sacrifice. I am loyal and constant in my love for travel, as I have not always been loyal and constant in my other loves. Newly divorced journalist Elizabeth Gilbert is struggling to carve out an authentic identity in New York.

Desperate to reinvigorate her life and connect with the world around her, she embarks on a modern-day pilgrimage. With warmth and humour, Gilbert chronicles a journey from Italy to India and, finally, to Bali. Each country serves as a vivid backdrop for self-exploration as she comes to terms with the choices that have hitherto defined her life, and begins to rediscover herself.

Eat Pray Love Synopsis

It's 3 a.m. and Elizabeth Gilbert is sobbing on the bathroom floor. She's in her thirties, she has a husband, a house, they're trying for a baby - and she doesn't want any of it. A bitter divorce and a turbulent love affair later, she realises it is time to pursue her own journey in search of three things she has been missing: pleasure, devotion and balance. So begins her quest. In Rome, she indulges herself and gains nearly two stone. In India, she finds enlightenment through scrubbing temple floors. Finally, in Bali, a toothless medicine man reveals a new path to peace, leaving her ready to love again. A worldwide phenomenon on first publication, Eat Pray Love now celebrates ten years of capturing the hearts and minds of women across the globe.
