Taking a Break

Most books I read are either art related or spiritual. This book may seem to fit into the latter, but not really; it's more of a personal memoir. Written by Elizabeth Gilbert , Eat, Pray, Love chronicles her search for spiritual balance and peace in her life. After a nasty divorce and broken love affair, Gilbert travels to Italy, India and Bali, absorbing a bit of each culture and adding it to her spirtual repertoire. I found the book to be funny and enjoyable at times, and completely self indulgent at others. Mostly I liked the section on Italy and found myself daydreaming about eating my way through that country. My favorite part was when an Italian man explained the "art of doing nothing."
