A disappointment, Jan 18 2010
This is nothing like Eat, Pray, Love, which unfortunately I was hoping it would be. I was looking for a light, easy, entertaining read like her last big hit, but this one is heavy, angry and a bit depressing. I thoroughly love reading books but this one took me a lot of effort to get through. Her writing style was so different than Eat, Pray, Love too. It seemed like she was trying too hard to make her book eloquent, thus making for a much more difficult read in my opinion.
It is more of a factual book, where I was looking for more of a romantic storey line. My expectations were not met, and that was all. Read it if you are open to learning the history of marriage....in which I of course was not.
