Book—Eat, Pray, Love

Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia is an autobiographical story by a woman. Since any self-written autobiography is, to a more or less degree, a self-indulgent story by the writer, you would think guys will be put off by Gilbert’s narrative. Not so—I like her book immensely.

No wonder Julia Roberts agreed to the movie. (Haven’t seen the movie though; in theory Roberts and Bardem sounds like a great pairing.)

Finally saw the movie. Can’t say the movie captured the author’s emotional arc as related in the book, but then, how many movie adapations do justice to to a well-written book. especially an autobiograpical narrative. Still, I like Julai Roberts since Steel Magonilas. She can express so much gravitas with that mobile mouth of hers. 8/10, Julai Roberts.
