If you don’t already know, this is a memoir of Gilbert’s year-long journey across Italy, India and Indonesia to find happiness, heal after her divorce and discover her spirituality.
Many people have recommended I read this book, most especially my Mum. She bought it for me last year while we were on vacation together and I promised to read it and then totally didn’t. I have a habit of putting off non-fiction because I’m always worried it’ll be boring – this book didn’t seem like it would be an exception, despite the praise. Well, like an ass, I was totally wrong.
