Real life is not reflective of that ideal, and I wonder how much of this "autobiography" was embellished to adhere to that formula; how much of the story was omitted because it didn't fit with the way the book flowed and how the story needed to transpire in order for this book to become "The Next Big Thing".

Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
You have never had to go through a healing process that seems endless. All those cynics out there who criticize Gilbert for writing a "too cutesy" memoir that seems beyond belief and who claim that comr is selfish for leaving her comed are clearly missing the point. It is her memoir, not yours.
The endless, endless crying. I understand that her intention was not for this book to be a travelogue but it begs the question, "Why was it necessary to go to Italy, India and Indonesia if the purpose was to not to gain something from them that could not be found elsewhere?
