This summer I have been reading Eat Pray Love. It came about because of a trip to the cinema I took with my sister and best friend Long Legs and we saw the advert for the forthcoming film. Seeing that it was based on a book, and I was a mere few days away from going on holiday, I quickly jumped onto Amazon and bought it,thinking it would be a nice light fluffy read for my hols :)
When actually, it has turned out to be a lot more than that. Have you ever read a book, or heard someone speak,listened to a song, seen a film, looked at a picture - anything - and thought Yes. That has been me. That has been me exactly,like down to the very finest details?
Well I got that sensation (as I'm sure many other women - or quite possibly men) when I read about our authors Liz's encounter with the bad boy love of her life David. Hearing her descriptions of how brutally one person can shake you all about inside so you don't even know who you really are anymore reminded me of a girl very close to home and the way she was last year...
The desriptions of how gradually but simply they fall for each other is so endearing. And, whether it be in a book or in real life its nice, just once in a while to hear a straight forward, plain and simple romance story. No break ups, no make ups, no huge secrets and drama and arguments.
This book has made me want to go travel too. I have always loved travelling even on cross country trains, but reading this book in a beautiful country (Portugal) and having new experiences there made my feet incredibly itchy - I wanted to go and have a look at stuff!
