Audio Book Review: Eat, Pray, Love

Reviewed by Jodi Hink, Part Time Librarian

eat, pray, love

Summary:
Traces the author's decision to quit her job and travel the world for a year
after suffering a mid-life crisis and divorce, a journey that took her to
Italy, India and Indonesia.

Review:
Not only did this book give me a taste of all three countries, I enjoyed
seeing the author go through spiritual change. I usually do not think
authors reading their own books necessarily give the nuance a trained actor
would, but in this case since it was a memoir, I did enjoy hearing the author
read her book.
