I don't know about the rest of you but I definitely would like to know your opinions on the last two books :P & I think it's a great idea to have the discussion online Mystical Glow! I'll try to answer ALL the questions you wrote ^_^
First of all, I definitely felt closer to Gilbert's book "Eat, Pray and Love" because it was more realistic - the inner struggle - and because to be honest I enjoyed it more than "the Time Traveler's Wife", especially the whole traveling to Italy part. I do like time travel books but the ones where the "character" travels to another time period, I love the way they describe how it feels to go back to the regency era or the medieval era etc (of course you guys already guessed it - those are romance books that I'm referring too *_*), the best time travel book I read is A Knight In Shining Armor and Legend by Jude Deveraux she really has the talent to draw you into the whole mood of time travel, do you guys recommend any time travel books?
In answer to question three I would like to talk to Gilbert about religion that's for sure! I was just talking to Failafoosa yesterday and we both agreed that if Gilbert read about Islam she would be able to find ALL the answers to her "ponderings".
About traveling without an idea of where I'll end up, I have to admit just the idea makes my insides churn I definitely don't like the feeling one bit! You know when Gilbert described that one of her friends Googled the place before she goes and learns A - Z about it before she travels well I kind of related a lot to that friend! I used to do that a lot when we where in France to get a whole understanding of our bearings :P
I would really enjoy to see a younger me and spending fun time with her! LoL & I would choose a book over a movie any time of the day!
EAT PRAY LOVE = 7 THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE = 5
Your turns now :P
