Im the first one to finish the book ..mwaaahahaha! :P

First of all I finished the book real quick and was quite engaged until I reached India, or to be more exact until she met Richard who I found to be annoying especially when he called her "groceries" *raising an eyebrow*, but to rewind a bit I loved Italy, I loved her description of the food, the history of the language, I loved it when she clarified what some "street" words meant, I felt I was truly "in" Italy, it made me want to jump into the book, go to Naples and devour the yummy Pizza - this obsession made me order Il Ferno pizza the same night!

Anyway I just want to ask you all this question: didn't you realize that the first "conversation" -you might call it - that the writer had with God had no intermediary, but then when she went to India and she met with the Guru, and she spoke to the Balinese doctor she started to have an intermediary, or more like she wasn't thinking of God as much as she was talking to the dead "Guru", the four brothers that protect her etc etc etc until she reaches the point where she thinks the conversation she had with God was instead a conversation she had with her "inner self" and that the power came from within herself....

It made me ponder on the fact on where does a person lose focus and basically go off the path of Truth, when it's so obvious that when the person is in his most dire need he focuses on One = God.

I repeat what Failafoosa says: Thank God we were born Muslims....

Who knows how crazy we would have been if we were otherwise O_O!!!!!!

P.S. I want to email the writer :D
