This is my "go-to" book for those times when I am asked if I can recommend something good! It is an absolutely monumental work and Juliet Stevenson as narrator is unsurpassed.
My absolute favorite book of all time. I have listened to this more times than I can count. The story does not ever go in the direction you expect it to....Its full of unique insight, philosophy, adventure. It's clever and sharp witted, full of humor and drama.... Narration is flawless!
i absolutely loved this book and the narrator was amazingly entertaining to listen to.
Amazing narration! Enjoyed hearing the characters come alive through the narrator’s interpretation. The story is lovely and clever. I had no idea I would find Alma so relatable and likeable.
an epic story that I never wanted to end! beautifully written...
Elizabeth Gilbert is absolutely brilliant! What an amazing book this is. It is long but, most definitely worth reading/listening.
A beautifully written story with a wonderful and unique heroine. The narrator did an excellent job.
I am speechless .... How on earth did Elizabeth Gilbert find the one non-artsy subject that I am so vastly passionate about, evolution, and write a whole novel about it ...??!??!? She already had my spiritual world rocked, and now this ?! I still can't believe it !
Very thought provoking... A good book for women of all generations.
I enjoyed the characters, the twist and turns and the poetic description of time. Who knew moss could be so interesting.
I loved it. I read eat pray love so was expecting something similar, or at least a novel set in this century! I felt like I was reading a Bronte novel - in a good way. This book was set mainly in the 1800s and felt accurate from the language to the science. And of course I love Juliet Stevensons calm British voice. Definitely reccmend!
