I listened to Eat, Pray, Love on our flight to London two years ago. The book was both an enjoyable and insightful read. To be honest, I haven't found since going blind that I really read for pleasure a lot. I still yearn to curl up in a corner and hold the book and read. So, this was an event that I actually enjoyed this book. I was on an airplane and was desperate to pass the time probably helped, too. Anyway, I enjoyed the book and have looked forward to seeing the movie. We were able to go to the movie yesterday with some friends.
My review: Loved the ending. Loved that I am still reflecting on it and the message that I took from the movie. Lose yourself and love. Everything in life can be your teacher. It was a little long. I left really tired afterward. I was trying too hard to figure out what was happening on the screen (Steve tried to clue me in.) I want to go back, relax, just listen, enjoy the dialogue and get a big buttery bag of popcorn.
Cricket was quiet for most of the movie. About half-way through she realized I was sitting by a friend that she loves! So she stood up and started wagging her tail. A quick hello and she calmed back down.
I am curious. Have you seen the movie? read the book? What is your opinion?
