Eat Pray Love

Another book I read over the summer, this one however wasn't as great as the others. Don't get me wrong, I can't deny the book's success. It's a good book and I do think i gained something from it. It just wasn't one of those i couldn't put down, or couldn't wait to get back to reading. I thought it was a little slow, and didn't have a strong climax, or maybe it did but happend towards the end.

The story is a memoir about the author who goes through a journey of self discovery after a messy divorce followed by depression. She spends a year traveling through 3 countries; she eats and enjoys life in Italy, then India where she tries to find her spirituality, and finnaly Indonesia where she falls in love.

I did like the book, and im glad i read it. i just didn't love it. i didn't keep me on my toes, as they say. I do like the cover design though. It's really sweet and simple. Maybe a little obvious.. but i don't mind so much. Not only is the typography choice relevant, but the style and simplicity of it. It also reminded me of our typography/phobias project.
