This beautifully written, heartfelt memoir touched a nerve among both readers and reviewers. 

In Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert tells how she made the difficult choice to leave behind all the trappings of modern American success—a marriage, a house in the country, a career—to find what she truly wanted from life.

Setting out for a year to study three different aspects of her nature amid three different cultures, Gilbert explored the art of pleasure in Italy, the art of devotion in India, and a balance between the two on the Indonesian island of Bali.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This is a wonderful book, brilliant and personal, rich in spiritual insight.”

    Anne Lamott

  • “Gilbert’s prose is fueled by a mix of intelligence, wit, and colloquial exuberance that is close to irresistible.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “An engaging, intelligent, and highly entertaining memoir.”


  • “A meditation on love in its many forms—love of food, language, humanity, God, and most meaningful for Gilbert, love of self.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “This insightful, funny account of her travels reads like a mix of Susan Orlean and Frances Mayes.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Gilbert’s exuberance and her self-deprecating humor enliven the proceedings.”

    New Yorker

  • “Gilbert grafts the structure of romantic fiction upon the inquiries of reporting in this sprawling yet methodical travelogue of soul-searching and self-discovery…Sustaining a chatty, conspiratorial tone, Gilbert fully engages readers in the year’s cultural and emotional tapestry—conveying rapture with infectious brio, recalling anguish with touching candor—as she details her exotic tableau with history, anecdote, and impression.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “There is never a whiny or pious or dull moment because Gilbert is irreverent, hilarious, zestful, courageous, intelligent, and in masterful command of her sparkling prose. A captivating storyteller with a gift for enlivening metaphors, Gilbert is Anne Lamott’s hip, yoga-practicing, footloose younger sister, and readers will laugh and cry as she recounts her nervy and outlandish experiences and profiles the extraordinary people she meets. As Gilbert switches from gelato to kundalini Shakti to herbal cures Balinese-style, she ponders the many paths to divinity, the true nature of happiness, and the boon of good-hearted, sexy love. Gilbert’s sensuous and audacious spiritual odyssey is as deeply pleasurable as it is enlightening.”

    " Ebbed and flowed for me with some lulls, but overall very relatable. I received this book as a gift right when I needed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Olivia | 2/15/2014

    " I found some parts of her reading to be a bit odd/annoying, like when she gives some characters accents. It was really weird to hear the shifts sometimes. Otherwise, the story was okay. It's the kind of book you'd prefer to listen to rather than read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Annie Marges | 2/13/2014

    " Yes, it is self-indulgent, but I read it at precisely the right time in my life (36, going through a nasty divorce, needing to find myself, yada, yada, yada). I loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Liz Sousa | 2/9/2014

    " Loved this book from start to finish. The content was very relatable, and the writing style was witty and engaging. It'll make you want to embark on your own adventure! "
