Recensione

'Like Eat, Pray, Love, her follow-up, Committed, feels irresistibly confessional ... I found myself guzzling Committed, reading it in mighty chunks, far into the night. Whenever I put it down, it was pinched by my mother or sister' (Sunday Times)

'An unblinkered consideration of what marriage really means' (Woman & Home)

'Gilbert delves deep into the history and cultural meanings of marriage, as well as into her own relationship' (Financial Times)

'Insightful ... She speaks for many who question the bliss in conjugal bonds, or, at least, those who want to understand how the tradition still perpetuates. For better or worse' (Vogue)

Descrizione del libro

The eagerly awaited sequel to the astonishing international bestseller Eat, Pray, Love

This is not just the sequel of number one best seller Eat Pray Love and it doesn't want to be that kind of book too.

"Committed" is the interesting Elizabeth Gilbert's journey through the complicated institution of marriage, its history and its meaning.

It's a very intimate novel and she shares every single feeling she experience while deciding what to do with her own life with Felipe, mixing her private story with pages about academic studies and history about marriage.

I enjoyed reading it because it was like listening to a close friend's opened heart thoughts (and you can also know how their love story comes to an end!).

Lo vogliono vendere un po'per quello che non è, cioè per un romanzo d'amore, invece è un saggio interessante sul matrimonio condito da aneddoti personali che chi ha amato "Eat, pray, love" apprezzerà. Poi lei è simpaticissima.

5.0 su 5 stelle I happen to really enjoy her style of writing and absolutely love her voice ... 20 ottobre 2015
Di Sarah - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I'm a big fan of Elizabeth Gilbert. I happen to really enjoy her style of writing and absolutely love her voice in the books I've read from her so far. She is funny, forward, and has no time for beating the bushes. I love her attitude towards life and her curiosity of the world. She allows us to remember that we are all more alike than you think. This book is sweet, charming, and perfect for a morning read with coffee and a soft blanket. Okay, seriously though just don't get into this book with high hopes of it following Eat, Pray, Love because it is kind of different. This book revolves around cultures and perspectives on marriage with some historical aspects what constitutes marriage. It's all very interesting! I am glad I gave this book a chance and went into it with the right mindset. This book happens to align with me in some ways and I am sure it will with you too- in one way or another. Whether you're young and have thought of marriage, about to get married, or just flat out over it because theres just too much when it comes to marriage to the point where you don't want to do it anymore.

2.0 su 5 stelle Was hoping for a cynic actually "making peace" with the decision to marry. This was not it. 23 agosto 2015
Di K. Hodge - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
SPOILER ALERT: She's *forced* to marry her boyfriend so she isn't "making peace" with a scary concept and then walking into after the fact... she's doing what she has to do in order for them to remain a couple (and for him to remain in the country). I was disheartened because I was really hoping to find someone who walks the cynical path with me... who somehow found peace. Alas, this was not it.

Well Elizabeth Gilbert did in fact warn people at the beginning of the book.. and thank goodness she did, because that made me feel a little less annoyed.

To re-state the obvious....it is nothing like Eat,Pray, Love....in fact one of my thoughts throughout Committed was that clearly Ms Gilbert had forgotten her meditation in India, because this level of obsessing and anxiety is not in keeping with her tree hugging calm achieved at the ashram.

The sociological research she conducted in this book was in fact interesting...the history of marriage and the Christian Church I have used in discussions with people...the look at the Wife of the mid-1900s was also pretty interesting...however the 'stalking' of villagers in South East Asia was odd, and I really was getting fed up for Felipe...when he eventually cracked and I was right there rooting for him

I really wanted to just shout CHILL OUT to the writer...I, myself, have only recently gotten married (1 month prior to reading this book) after being with my husband for 10 yrs...I really hope writing this book helped her feel better...because by the end of it the conclusions she had drawn were obvious from before she started the book..

While the book was not as enjoyable as her previous hit... i am glad that she wrote it, got it out into the Universe, and did what she had to do...I look forward to reading her next book (fingers crossed)

5.0 su 5 stelle a wonderful book addressing The journey towards or away from the M-word 23 dicembre 2013
Di Kay Sowetan - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
It took me a whopping six days to read, longer than my average page-turner.

Early in the book Liz tells the reader that Catherine, her sister is a historian. Whoa! I beg, Liz is a revealer and writer of her story, her history!

'Committed' is a combination of historical writings and events PLUS Liz Gilbert's personal views on marriage. If you are averse to history lessons you will hopefully plod along and read an excellent narration of her journey.

For me, this book is much more thought provoking than my last read of her work in "Eat, Pray, Love"

That said, I thoroughly enjoyed the book, occasionally scratching out her "American perspective" because as I read it I felt that it is an interesting and a rich book for the inquisitive (modern or not, whatever your point of view...) reader, researcher (and all) on the Committed/Marriage topic from whatever land you are situated as you read.

I was disappointed at the infrequent breaks between history and her story. Certainly wished to get more of her own personal account especially after "Eat, Pray, Love"

All in all, the book was worth it. I recommend it for the married, single, engaged, divorced, widowed, undecided, male, female reader.

5.0 su 5 stelle Honest words 20 dicembre 2013
Di jbs.kkt - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I avoided this book for the longest time because I had the huge assumption that it would be a sellout, that she spent EPL trying to find herself, fell in love, now this "sequel" would be about the wonder of being in love and "committed." Well, I would be the first to admit that I was wrong to have made that assumption.

I find the entire journey of the book very relatable. As a woman who's about to get married, who is constantly bombarded with questions about babies, and who has reservations about the institution of marriage and a woman's role in procreation, I was sure glad to see that someone shared similar feelings/thoughts, and better yet, she had the literary talent to voice them. The words were so honest and frank, that at times, I felt uncomfortable. I felt as if I just said out loud my deepest secrets that werent meant to be shared with the outside world.

I read some reviews who said the book was whiny. I see where that's coming from. But guess what, doubts are whiny, uncertainties are whiny. The only difference is that, Gilbert was brave enough to say it out loud.
