Written by Elizabeth Gilbert
This beautifully written, heartfelt memoir touched a nerve among both readers and reviewers. Elizabeth Gilbert tells how she made the difficult choice to leave behind all the trappings of modern American success (marriage, house in the country, career) and find, instead, what she truly wanted from life. Setting out for a year to study three different aspects of her nature amid three different cultures, Gilbert explored the art of pleasure in Italy and the art of devotion in India, and then a balance between the two on the Indonesian island of Bali. By turns rapturous and rueful, this wise and funny author (whom Booklist calls "Anne Lamott’s hip, yoga- practicing, footloose younger sister") is poised to garner yet more adoring fans.
If the world around you is not out of control for you, what and how can you do? Avoid it? Overcome it? Or is it time to find a new world as good as it will be? Or take on vacation for travelling? You might have this kind of questions in your mind long time ago. Regarding many people point of views, they could not quit what they own or hold in the hand. Because mainstream tells us must coloring inside the line. So we will be afraid to lose some things we already have. That’s why I love this book so much.
If no limitation in your mind, I think you should choose your new world you really want. The book is talking about the trip author has been experiencing and what’s happened during. Author found happiness and self-confidence after trip. She has been suffering the pain of divorce. Then she quit her jobs and plan traveling for one year. She went to three countries, three countries (Italy, India and Indonesia). In Italy, she enjoyed the food. In India, she found true happiness and peace. In Indonesia, she found soul mate. After the trip she got a huge change in her mind. So I recommend it. You will love it.
