Committed: A Love Story


Show Synopsis

At the end of her bestselling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe - a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met.

A bit off track

If you loved Eat, Pray, Love then you'll probably like this book. The author strays off topic throughout the book giving a history of marriage instead of telling her own story, which would make for a very short book! I wasn't expecting the history sections when I read this book. I was expecting her to tell the tale of how much it took to get married, about the ceremony and party afterward. This book is some of that and a lot of world history of marriage. In reality she should never have been put in that position, forced to be married, by Homeland security as it isn't their job to make people get married, but to keep the nation secure. Felipe had a valid US visa that would let him come and go as he had been doing for years. Then they ran into a nutcase @ Homeland who seems to make it his personal job to make sure people get married even if they don't want to.

The chapter on marriage was fascinating. However, compared to the author's earlier book, "Eat, Pray, Love", it lacks the compelling drama and wording that riveted your attention to every page and chapter.
