Couldn't put it down!  June 16, 2011

More than a memoir or a history, it shows why research and scholarship matter, because they stage wrestling matches between ideas, and help us make sense of the world and of our personal lives.
It was an enlightening and pleasant journey! I am definitely planning on giving this textbook to friends. I am already looking forward to re-reading it. Lovely, wise, humble read. You won't regret it.

Committed : A Love Story: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


The #1 New York Times bestselling follow up to Eat, Pray, Love an intimate and erudite celebration of love.

At the end of her memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian living in Indonesia. The couple swore eternal love, but also swore (as skittish divorce survivors) never to marry. However, providence intervened in the form of a U.S. government ultimatum: get married, or Felipe could never enter America again. Told with Gilbert's trademark humor and intelligence, this fascinating meditation on compatibility and fidelity chronicles Gilbert's complex and sometimes frightening journey into second marriage, and will enthrall the millions of readers who made Eat, Pray, Love a number one bestseller.

Elizabeth Gilbert is an award winning writer of both fiction and nonfiction. Her previous books include the short story collection Pilgrims; a novel, Stern Men; The Last American Man and Eat, Pray, Love.
