Eat, Pray, Love – Elizabeth Gilbert

I have seen this book around the web, and I think in the various bookstores I frequent too. I always checked it out but never bought it because I couldn’t identify myself with it because it was non-fiction, and the story of a woman after the collapse of her marriage. The story of her renewal I guess. I got hold of the audio version, the book being read by the author herself. Though her world is so different from mine, I find it very interesting. I’ve never listened to audio books before, it is not like listen to music at all – it commands your full attention! It is difficult to write up this post while I listen to Elizabeth talk about 9/11 in the background. But listening to an audio book would be a good way to pass the time while commuting (not for me because mine only lasts 10 minutes) or waiting in line somewhere.

I don’t think I’ll read listen through this all way through. Not because it isn’t worth it, but because it is. I actually would love to read her words. She reads beautifully, and I love the fact that there’s emotion specially because it is her story that she’s telling. But I want the book too. If I will use my BestBuy Gift Card, this will be one of the books I’d be getting there. 🙂

Oh and I’d just have to add: Hugh Jackman was great at the Oscar’s! I love his opening number. His number with Beyonce and the rest was also good, but I didn’t see much sense in the songs they sang, haha. I also liked the whole production, specially the way they presented the nominees for the acting roles. It seemed so personal and would totally make a nominee feel so honored. I also liked this year’s tribute for the Hollywood personalities who died in the past year with Queen Latifah singing in the background.

I enjoyed this year’s show, kudos to everyone behind the production!
