Start your review of Eten, bidden, beminnen Write a review Shelves: non-fiction , Wow, this book took me on a roller-coaster ride. Still, for a woman who abandons everything in search of a true spiritual experience, she leaves most of the important questions unanswered. As delightful as the Italy section was to read, I felt like she never really stepped out of herself to understand the country on its own terms and to move beyond the stereotype. Despite it being a bit of a superficial assessment, I have no problem with Gilbert associating Italy with pleasure. There is enough beauty there to warrant it. It was more her interpretation of what it means to open oneself to pleasure that bothered me and seemed very narrow.

Had er misschien iets meer van verwacht. Wonderschoon door: KarinBezemer op 29 december 2 likes Ik vond het een puur boek. Wat mooi om een jaar eens heel anders te besteden en om zo een diepe wond te genezen. Ik vond vooral het gedeelte over de tijd in India boeiend, een echte levensles.
