tie a cat to a pole...



Yeah I had to go there.

And MAN I'm glad I did. I needed to read this after the depression inducing Kite Runner. Elizabeth Gilbert=my hero. What and amazing woman! I love her after reading this book. It's a memoir of sorts strating at the end of her divorce and depression and her travels through Italy, India, and Indonesia. It was interesting and uplifting. I loved her veiw on having kids and being married in the begginning of the book. Her take on God is right up my alley. I found this book refreshing and wise.

I was dying to read it after I saw the Oprah special about it - And I searched all these bookshops and it was sold out, then eventually found it in Borders... Skimmed it. Realised it was going to be more complicated than I thought, and decided not to. I really loved the story the author told on Oprah about it though.
Yeah there was alot more zen Buddism and background on Yoga and Guru's that I thought just by picking it up. And I'm not gonna lie my eyes glazed over once or twice when she went into those history lessons but the book as a whole I just loved to bits.
