LOVED THE BOOK!
I've actually written about it last year.
And I'm currently reading Gilbert's follow-up, Committed.
Sadly, I don't feel the same love for the film.
"Eat, Pray, Love" lost its soul on the big screen. I'd still recommend that you watch it -- for the locations, for Julia, for Javier, for the pasta & pizza. But a warning for those who've read the book -- Liz's soul searching was not captured on film. In the movie, her spiritual journey turned into a mere...travelogue. Sigh.
The film's more "Eat, Grieve, Befriend" -- as written by one reviewer.
J was sleepy all throughout India, was restless through Bali...
The film needs a lot of editing.
