Other than school textbooks, I've never highlighted book pages. This one I did. There were some inspiring quotes and bits of history that I just wanted to be able to reread easily. I'm so in love with this book. I really took my time reading it, enjoying it. Was quite sad when I finished. The way Ms.Gilbert writes just encapsulates you, makes you laugh, cry and live through her words. It wasn't just about her journey, but each place she visited, she taught you history of how it came to be. Taught it in a way that was interesting, that you'd want to learn more. This isn't just a book that you read and discard, it's like a guide book for the way life should be appreciated, respected and loved because this planet has so much to offer sometimes you just gotta take that leap! I will say this, finished this book yesterday and then watched the movie and I thought the movie was AWEFUL. It was rushed, left out a HUGE key character in my opinion and changed some things up in a disappointing way so I recommend READING THIS BOOK FIRST. Or maybe see the movie first so you'll be that much more engulfed in the book.
While it's a great story by itself, it's almost like a hidden guide for relating, and dealing with one's own depression. I don't think I could have gotten through last year without knowing that I wasn't the only one who felt that way...
anyone going through a bad divorce should read this book. Finding your self and happiness again are the only way to truly heal.
This book is one of the best books I have ever read in my entire life
The movie does not do it justice. What a journey through the darkness and into the light. Truly inspired to “keep on keeping on”. Love and Light...
