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)

Principali recensioni dei clienti

Formato: Copertina flessibile
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.

3.0 su 5 stelle Love by this author 9 ottobre 2014
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
After reading EAT, PRAY, Love by this author, I had high expectations. In this book Ms. Gilbert takes the reader through her struggle with the idea of marriage even though she has fallen in love and the only way she can really have a life with him is to marry him. She takes us on a world tour as they travel the earth together waiting for him to get a visa to enter the country, but the thing I learned and admired about this author is how much research and thought she gave to her decision to marry and what finally encouraged her to become comfortable with the idea of matrimony.

5.0 su 5 stelle Everyone thinking about marriage should read this 31 gennaio 2014
Di Cindy Kline - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Whether you are divorced, getting married, or even happily married, you just have to love how Liz looks at Marriage from every possible angle…especially from the perspective that since she'd been unlucky at it once, she was sure she never wanted to make that mistake again! Her absolute obsession with deconstructing marriage will entertain you and make you think about it long after you've finished reading it. She gives a cross-cultural examination to how people view and feel about marriage, and still, she can't conclude why some marriages work and some don't…only that she's terrified of being unhappy. The love of her life, Felipe, whom we met in Eat, Pray, Love, is unable to enter the USA and unless she marries him the miles of red tape will keep him out of the US for ever. In the mean time, they travel the world in order to stay together while working on making a life together in the US. She seems to think that if she turns herself inside out and reveals all her shortcomings, it will be best in terms of full disclosure. It doesn't matter, when someone you love so much loves you back the way you need to be loved, and that's what Liz discovers while wearing Felipe out and finally figuring out how best to be what he needs and how to provide that for him. They are a precious couple even if they don't fit the perfect rubric of what it takes to make a perfect and lasting marriage. Nobody does, nobody ever will, and in the end, this is a love story, built on the love stories of her parents and the strong women in her life. Marriage is not for the faint of heart, and this should be required pre-Cana reading.

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.

3.0 su 5 stelle The Sequel to Eat, Pray, Love...well sort of... 12 dicembre 2010
Di Rebecca of Amazon - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
If you read Eat, Pray, Love then this book is a continuation of the love story between Elizabeth and Filipe. Well sort of... This book is really more about the fear of marriage, the history of marriage, the beauty of marriage and the unfairness of marriage. Elizabeth also addresses some highly political topics which are sure to alienate part of her audience.

Some of this book is an outright rant while at other times there are great lessons to learn. I enjoy the intellectual style of Elizabeth Gilbert's writing and find her deepest thoughts entertaining. What I did not expect from this book (unlike EPL) was that it would make me depressed for two complete days. Sure it kept my attention but all the fighting between Filipe and Elizabeth and all the fears about marriage left me feeling a little hopeless.

More than once we learn about Elizabeth's complete and utter fear about getting married again. It is really the entire reason she wrote this book. It seems like she felt that if she could understand marriage on a deeper level she would be able to endure being married. She was literally forced into marrying Filipe although it is very revealing that they had their own ceremony twice without official recognition.

The truth is really, when Elizabeth Gilbert decides to read books on marriage I felt like saying: "Yay! Finally." What results from this research is the revelation of some shocking and surprising facts about marriage in various cultures. She also ends up having some interesting thoughts on Christianity.

Now and then, the book actually made me laugh. Although parts of it made me cry. So if you read this book realize that while it is the same person who wrote EPL it is a much more troubled person who writes Committed.

When Elizabeth asks the question: "Should you lower your expectations to be happy?" I'd have to say YES! By the end of this book I was SO happy that Elizabeth and Filipe got married. I hope they have a very happy life together. When Elizabeth fell in love I don't think she could have imagined the difficult circumstances she would be forced to endure. Yes, this book has a happy ending, but what a journey to get there!
