Just finished this ... great story!

one of my favorite sections ... the author Elizabeth Gilbert is in Italy basically eating her way across the country and trying to find some inner peace ... after a beautiful day of taking classes to learn Italian and eating she is enjoying herself in a park and ....

* They come upon me all silent and menacing like Pinkerton Detectives, and they flank me---- Depression on my left, Loneliness on my right. They don't need to show me their badges. I know these guys very well. We've been playing a cat and mouse game for years now. Though I admit I am surprised to meet them in this elegant Italian garden at dusk. This is no place they belong.... *

she has a conversation with them as they follow her back to her apartment. ...

*It's not fair for you to come here, I tell Depression. I paid you off already. I served my time back in New York.

But he just gives me that dark smile, settles into my favorite chair, puts his feet up on my table and lights a cigar, filling the place with his awful smoke. Loneliness watches and sighs, then climbs into my bed and pulls the covers over himself, fully dressed, shoes and all. He's going to make me sleep with him again tonight, I just know it.*


I really enjoyed this book.

I bought this book a month ago anticipating a great read. It's been a struggle to get to page 102....disappointing. Instead of delivering on its hype, it instead delivers the escapades of a rich, unfulfilled woman seeking more. Her style just doesn't appeal to me. I wish you could return an unread book.

I know what you mean Maggie... it was definitly self indulgent. But I found the internal struggle recognizable. Just the quest for a quiet mind. I think it is something that many have trouble with. It doesn't matter what your financial situatiion is.

I did like her style of writing though. I found it funny. I really enjoyed the characters she met along the way. But it did come across to me as a well wrapped up package. You know, she set out for and had exactly the results she was looking for.

I just found that her struggle to find that peaceful place in her own company, the ability to shut off the internal voice, was one I could identify with.

I think you might enjoy Grace (Eventually): Thoughts on Faith by Anne Lamott...in fact, I'm sure you would. If you live in Summerside, it is, as we speak, on the shelf at the local library.
