Gilbert draws you in and bares her emotions down to the core. I find that a brave thing to do, and not everyone can do it. These are not characters. These are real people and whether you are just starting your healing process or right in the middle, everyone needs recovery and women will love the bonding they can feel just from the words on the page. You don’t need to go to Italy, India and Indonesia. You just need to quiet all the voices and listen for your own.
Four words that describe this book: real, healing, vulnerable
You might want to pick this book up if: If you’ve ever had a broken heart over anything, this book’s for you. “My sense of helplessness was overwhelming. What I wanted to do was pull some massive emergency brake on the universe, like the brakes I’d seen on the subways during our school trip to New York City.”–Elizabeth Gilbert
