So, I actually do have an Unpopular Opinion

I read Eat Pray Love finally and I am SO confused on why people liked it so much. It was tedious to read and should have been at least a hundred pages shorter. I had been looking forward to reading it because people kept raving about it but I was really not impressed. Honestly a lot of it felt made up and disingenuous.

The only part I did like was where she said the Balinese don't let their children touch the ground before they are 6 months old because they are still gods. I loved that part :-)

    i never read it but tried to watch the movie and wasnt really feeling it. 

    my UO: i dont think julia roberts is the goddess everyone makes her out to be. sure, she is attractive - but she isnt THAT beautiful (her nose and mouth are funny if you ask me) and she kinda gets on my nerves. i get the feeling that she is probably really stuck up IRL

    Everyone keeps telling me to get this book.  I saw the movie previews and of course the books are always better, but it just seemed so self-indulgent to me and I didn't get "the point."

    Wow!  This is an UO.  I've never heard anyone say they didn't love it.  Do you like Picoult usually?

    I also wasn't a fan of Eat Pray Love.  As a matter of fact, I couldn't finish it.

    No, I'm not a Picoult fan at all. I don't love her style of writing

    I struggled though India, I mean really struggled. But I am one of those who must finish the book. That said, I only read is because a friend gave it to me.

    I liked the book, but Bali was my favorite section because I had just been there when I read it.  I never saw the movie though. I need to start a new book, and now that Chickadee sleeps in her room I can read in bed again woohoo!

    next up on my reading queue is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I have heard good things. Not that I'm on a roll with that, lol.

    I enjoyed it, but I absolutely love travel  and religious studies, and have practiced yoga for over 15yrs, so I could relate to the topic and I thought the author was brave to be honest about her issues. It's a totally self-indulgent story, but on bad days I can only dream that I would have that kind of disposable income to leave life behind for a year and do whatever I wanted.

    The one book I couldn't get through was The Historian; I have no clue how that was a bestseller, I think I made it about 75pgs.
