One book which is making quite a hype nowadays is Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray and Love. Released and published way back 2007, you may wonder why it is generating so much buzz. Reason is that the book is translated into a motion picture which will open soon in theaters worldwide and which stars Julia Roberts as its lead.

The book centers its attention to a single lady. We follow her search for the essence of being as she travels across the globe from different destinations such as Italy, India and Indonesia. She searches for herself and her inner purpose as she experiences the culture of the 3 different places. She discovered more than just herself but also the people around her. This is beautifully written and heartfelt Elizabeth Gilbert tells us the difficulty of one's choice to leave behind all the trappings of modern life and success (marriage, house in the country, career). But it was all for a better and bigger purpose - and that is to find what she truly wanted in life
