I happen to agree with you about eat, pray, love..I love learning the italian language so I peeked into the book for that and there were a few interesting Italianisms in it..but like you, I got bored with her pretty early on..
I didn't read the book. Shortly after it came out I read a review somewhere(New York Times, I think). My roommate read the book. Her comment: "It was alright, a little dry."
I am not the only one not real impressed then. Thanks for taking the time to comment Ginny and Bill.
