    I just finished reading the book Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of the best-seller Eat, Pray, Love. I really enjoyed the raw honesty of her 1st book so I thought I'd give this one a try. LOVED IT. Committed picks right up where Eat, Pray, Love ended, with her madly in love with a man she met in Indonesia. They swore to be committed forever, but to never marry, as they both had gone through painful divorces.

    Without ruining the book, they basically have to get married due to some immigration concerns, and the majority of the book involves her making peace with the institution of marriage before she enters it again. I think it has some intelligent, witty, refreshing, and honest things to say about marriage, and love for that matter.

    I highly recommend it if any of you girls are looking for a must-read:) Anyone else read it? What are your thoughts?

        I read eat, love, pray over christmas and loved it too :) I've been holding out on buying committed because I don't have much time to read during the school semester and was hoping it would come out in paperback (i don't know why I like it better in paperback, but I love carrying my books with me everyone and its easier in paperback :)).... Glad to hear a good review on it, i just may have to go out and get it in the next few days!
