Sharing of EAT.PRAY.LOVE

I spotted this book while spending my time in a bookshop before meeting up a friend for dinner 3 years ago. I was attracted by the book title at first and decided to spend some time to read through the summary. Wow, the book is about EAT, TRAVEL and LOVE, which sounds interesting to me. So, I started to read it chapter by chapter until my friend called me up and said "Hey friend! Where are you, are you coming?" Oops, I'd forgotten the dating and rushed to meet up my friend, and of course with this entertaining and enlightening book.
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
The author, Elizabeth Gilbert travels to 3 different countries - Italy, India and Indonesia to find back the balance of her life after her divorce. She experiences and explores different cultures, meets different people and learns things she never learn before in New York. [EAT]In Italy, she tries and best yummy Pizza in Italy and experiences the soccer game there, but you can't find soccer game scene in the movie. [PRAY]In India, she learns how to do meditation peacefully, however she start off with frustration because she can't concentrate herself in the room.[LOVE]In Bali(Indonesia), she finds Ketut, the  medicine man she met 2 years ago.I like the old man who act as Ketut in the movie, he is so cute and impressed me the most in entire movie. At the end, Liz falls in love with a Brazilian man in Bali and the story ended here.
Julia Roberts in the movie^^
I wouldn't say there are no differences between book and movie as movie has missed out some of the characters and nice scenes from the book. Most of the book readers would claim to have all the interesting scenes and characters to be shown in the movie. It took almost a year of period for Liz to travel along these 3 countries but I feel like the movie only took 1 months to finish up the story. Anyhow, book and movie are nice to me, Julia Roberts has made the character as lively as the book, and she is one of my favourite actresses.
Guess who is this? Yeah, she is Elizabeth Gilbert.
It is a wonderful book which I would recommend for girls to read. You will discover something from the book which would nourish your life. It's a real story, enjoy reading^^

Ending this blog with my favourite quotes from the book, by Ketut: "To meditate only you must smile. Smile with your face smile, with your mind, and good energy will come to you and clean away dirty energy. Even smile with your liver.
Ketut in the movie, I like him :)
