4.0 von 5 Sternen Good, enjoyable, funny... Not what I thought it was though... 2. April 2012
Von R. David - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
First things first, I was introduced to this book by a friend who told me (and believed) that it was written by the real ex-husband of the vapid egotist that wrote Eat, Pray, Love... Having previously thumbed through that book and losing a significant amount of respect for the girlfriend who had recommended it to me as a book that had "changed her life", I was nothing but thrilled (in an admittedly petty sort of way) to read that my first assumptions were correct. I read a few chapters of my friend's copy of "drink, play, expletive," and immediately bought a copy for my kindle and finished it in a few hours.

I DID laugh aloud, and I am embarrassed to admit how long it took me to suspect that if it was not fiction, it was a wildly exaggerated tale. And even though the painfully predictable ending was what really gave it away, it did put a lump in my throat and made my eyes water just enough that I had to roll my eyes at what a girl I am... A girl that really hates chick lit, but a girl who wants to believe in true love and fate nonetheless... (Insert audible sigh here)

Three stars or five stars... I've vacillated between the two for a while now. When I believed it was non-fiction it was a 5 star book no question, but after finding out it was pure satire, my shoulders sank and I said "aw man!" and I called my ex husband (who I am still friendly with) to take back my vehement recommendation from last night. I can't quite put my finger on why it loses so much with this new bit of information but it really does. But, that being said, I'll probably read it again in a few years on a plane or something. It was a fun, quick read, and the characters are quite likable in their own sort of way.

I read in a few other reviews that the characters and situations were completely unbelievable, but I've worked with people who very much live the lifestyle he describes so this wasn't an issue for me. I read a review about "Eat, pray, love" where they said something to the effect that it was a boring story about a "rich girl gone slumming", which was pretty much my own impression. I think he did a GREAT job at creating a character that could be the ex-husband of Ms Gilbert, or a character like her.

I settled on four stars because I can't blame the book for the bad information I was given before reading it. I definitely ENJOYED reading it, but I probably wouldn't have bothered if I'd known it was satire from the get go....
3.0 von 5 Sternen Amusing little response 23. Januar 2011

Read the predecessor a few years ago and loved it (although was a little disappointed in the movie). Thought this was a brilliant idea and looked forward to the dichotomy. While it's a cure story and it's actually pretty well-written, I was expecting something that would be interesting to men. Having just finished the book, I'm not fooled; this book is also for women. I only feel slightly cheated because it was a super quick read and contained a chuckle or two. It's cheap; go for it.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Mediocre story 17. Februar 2011
Von SusieB - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Easy quick read, mediocre story. Well & good jumping on the Eat, Love, Pray format if the content is good but it barely scratches the surface of being a decent story.

Reads too much like fiction - didnt believe most of it...just felt like it was a money spinner trying to be James Frey with the Gilbert format and not succeeding on either front.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Stretching Credibility 30. Januar 2011
Von LiveLearnGrow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
I read (okay - listened to the unabridged version) of Eat, Pray, Love last year and saw this tagged at Amazon as one of those "you might be interested in" books. I like travel literature. I have traveled quite a bit in Asia (Thailand in particular) so I thought I would buy it and read it. I wasn't disappointed. It was a quick page turner that I burned through in a week or so of stolen moments of reading. I was struck by the way the book danced on the edge of credibility. The central character was engaged in what were believable pursuits in Ireland and Thailand - but the Vegas part was too coincidental and does anyone without a history in the city really get so much gratis (a suite at the Bellagio) and - where did this guy get all the money to live on?

Part of the problem with the book is that I did not read carefully enough the sales information or realize I was reading a piece of fiction. I thought it was true until I finished the book. Had I known the book was a work of fiction (I thought it as an embellished true account) going in I'm not sure I would have enjoyed it as much for the extraordinary nature of this man's journey - the people and circumstances connecting each transition (from Ireland to Vegas to Thailand) would have been lost.

That being said - go ahead and read it. There is enough truth in the fiction to engage your traveling spirit and inspire you too to let go a bit and live. For all of us wanting to cast our jobs off for a year or more to go travel - this is an enjoyable and encouraging tome.

Oh - and it's well written. The author has a background writing comedy and it shows in the witty word usage in the book and allusions to popular culture sprinkled throughout.
