Eat, Pray, Love – Indonesia (a.k.a. This is the END my friends)

30th August 2010


That is my summation of Love or Indonesia as it is titled in the book. I’ll be honest with you – this section pretty much bored me to tears. Except for Felipe, who I’m assuming is played by Javier Bardem in the movie, which makes me imagine a hunky dude when reading about him – the rest of this section was a big yawn fest. It was kind of disappointing. I found myself really trying to skip entire passages where she kind of went on a little too long, and in a painful, not fun to read fashion.

Italy, where are you when I need you?

Italy, was my favorite part of the book, by far. And thanks to Richard in India and a small part to Felipe, I actually finished this book – I doubt I would have otherwise. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s amazing that she went on this journey for herself after such a brutal divorce, but I really don’t get how this book is as popular as it is. Did this book inspire me? Yes – it inspired me to find myself a hot Brazilian, if I ever get divorced.

What I enjoyed most in this book are the characters we get to meet, and learning about their culture and traditions and beliefs. But I hate to admit that by the third section, I was kind of, totally bored with the main character herself, which makes it pretty hard to enjoy the book.

So, did I love this section? Nope. Not at all. It almost made me hate the entire book, and I actually had to go back to my earlier posts on Italy and India to see if I even enjoyed those. Although, normally it takes me a few days (sometimes much less if I’m really enjoying the read) to get through a book, this one was dragged on a little too long, which may have also affected my overall love for the book.

I would love to know what you thought about this book. Whether you were part of reading this with me (oh, um, where did you 30+ ladies go?), or have read this book at some point, I would love to know what you thought about Eat, Pray, Love. Do you think it’s fantastic? Life changing? Do you think its totally over hyped?  Leave me a comment below and let me know – I would honestly love to hear what you thought about it.

Also, for anyone that did in fact read the book along with me, (My dear invisible #EatPrayLovers)  feel free to link up your Indonesia/final posts here – or if you’ve ever written about Eat, Pray, Love, please go ahead and link up so I can read your posts about it!
