Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

This book, featured on Oprah, is a nonfiction work about the author's spiritual journey after her devastating divorce. She was majorly depressed and being a writer, got the opportunity to travel and write a book about her journey. She traveled for about a year to Italy, India and Indonesia (Bali). This book has turned into quite the blockbuster and is being made into a movie. I enjoyed the book but I don't think it is for everybody. She is an unconventional person. I found her style of writing to be quite funny and poignant. What I liked the most is that she befriended unique individuals wherever she went and made a real connection with them. The book is written like a diary with rather short sections, so it is easy to read.
