Essay on “Eat, Pray, Love”
I started reading this book I had last year, but fell asleep almost every page, decided that my acquaintance with the author should be postponed, and forgetting about it altogether. I would not have remembered about Mrs. Gilbert, together with its creation and now, if not for a trip to a nearby town. When choosing what to take to read on the way, my interest has fueled an interesting review of the bookmix site, after which I still decided to re-acquaintance. So, Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Eat, Pray, love».
Summary of course, the book is beautiful. Judging from her, I was expecting an easy female fiction with a hint of meaning. As a result, my expectations were confirmed only that it is fiction. No more. I honestly tried to find at least one plus of this product. At least one worthwhile idea. At least one point, touches the soul. All to no avail. The book does not carry any literary value. Why and for what purpose the author created it, for me, an enigma. Swing on the subject, of course, grandiose. The pursuit of happiness, joy, pleasure, spirituality, and of self – so trite and hackneyed theme that all of this, for me personally, suggesting that, rather than the author has nothing to say something new, then you should not take up the thousandth chewing . But it is not worth it. Gilbert, apparently thought otherwise. A pity, because in the end it has turned out – not a simple transfusion from a sieve, and generously spiced with boredom, sadness and boredom
Eat Pray Love Summary
If we look at the story, I did not have the integrity.. There was a feeling that the author wrote this work for a long time, and at long intervals. Not only that, the idea was lost, without even having arisen, so also the course of the plot itself was built a very curious way. First, the author seems to be conducting an evaluation of the presenting characters and situations, after long thought, where the author muses like what to do with them, stretching almost to the end, and galloping, crumpled over. At times, the author is trying to divert the attention of readers from passive heroine, including three sets of different, but at the same time striking the country, but this is not nothing good happened. Italy, India and Indonesia – as much, and most importantly – as a bright, lively, wide and tempting it was possible to describe these countries. He had only to appear some time standing or description, it immediately interrupted, and the situation was returning to the depressive character. The impression that the author has a good set of lexical, but she just does not know how to use it. Speaking of the heroine – she has absolutely no character. Neither the descriptions nor the deeds, nor the motivation or thoughts. Nothing. Only not passing depression.
So, personally, I could not bear the thought of any security. And the road was much longer and more boring. Therefore, I can appreciate this book only the 1st grade of 5
Upd .: In the light of past dialogue on previous reviews, I can say to all dissatisfied -. Yes, I have read all the previous reviews and totally agree, they are written on the cut above, clearer and more dignified. However, by themselves can use the well-known ad posted in a pub – “Please do not shoot the musicians – play, as they can” .
