It took me awhile to get through this book. Part of it was because I had my mom's funeral to organize (It was absolutely beautiful!) and part of it was because school started last week. We had two days of teacher workshops and preparation then the kids came in on Wednesday for three days. And it was so hot! It was in the mid 90s and humid. Our school doesn't have air conditioning so it was sweltering.
This book is divided into three parts. It covers one year in the life of the author. She spends four months in Italy seeking pleasure, four months in India at an ashram seeking god, and four months in Bali looking for balance. I enjoyed the Italian part the most but found the Bali section the most informative. It was a very interesting look at that Muslim island in Indonesia. The middle section was a bit boring since nothing ever happens but her witty and beautiful writing kept me turning the pages.
Now, I'm curious to see the movie even though it's getting likewarm reviews. I'll wait until I can rent it. Happy reading!
