After a messy divorce, depression and further heartbreak, Gilbert takes a year to travel to Italy, India, and Indonesia in search of “everything” and this book is a thoroughly enjoyable memoir of that year. In Italy she indulges her senses, primarily in food. In India she feeds her spiritual side at her guru’s ashram, and in Indonesia she seeks a balance between devotion and pleasure. I loved this book. The people she meets along the way are fascinating and charming. Some of her comments really spoke to me. Although I listened to this book (extremely well read by the author, by the way), I do plan on buying a 3-D copy to read again.
What is Whimpulsive?
It's not a word, but it should be, because it's the best description of both my reading habits and my blog posting habits. This blog is primarily about the books I'm reading, with occasional other stuff thrown in.
