I am a woman over 40 and loved the book. What engaged me is that she was able to be very honest about her own mistakes and challenges. What made me nod in understanding is that she jumped from the frying pan of a marriage that wasn't right for her into a romantic relationship where she clung too hard - because she hadn't done her own homework yet. And then she takes us on the journey of how one woman's homework can unfold. We can't all go to Italy, India and Bali but we can travel with Gilbert and spark our own journey of self discovering in the very simplistic, basic and necessary actions of eating, praying and loving.
I've read the book twice now. I also enjoyed her first novel "Stern Men" quite a bit, and various articles she's written for different magazines over the years.
