At the end of her bestselling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other, but also swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally married. (Both were survivors of previous divorces. Enough said.) But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government, which—after unexpectedly detaining Felipe at an American border crossing—gave the couple a choice: they could either get married, or Felipe would never be allowed to enter the country again. Having been effectively sentenced to wed, Gilbert tackled her fears of marriage by delving into this topic completely, trying with all her might to discover through historical research, interviews, and much personal reflection what this stubbornly enduring old institution actually is. Told with Gilbert's trademark wit, intelligence and compassion, Committed attempts to "turn on all the lights" when it comes to matrimony, frankly examining questions of compatibility, infatuation, fidelity, family tradition, social expectations, divorce risks and humbling responsibilities. Gilbert's memoir is ultimately a clear-eyed celebration of love with all the complexity and consequence that real love, in the real world, actually entails.

I haven't blog about my personal review on Liz Gilbert's first momoir EAT PRAY LOVE though I gave 10 already. The other day, I was trying to find a new book to read online because i feel so empty reading Facebook status, tweets and others blogs which is simply eavesdropping. Where am I? Okay, I went to bookstore the other day but I was pressed for time so didn't find anything interesting. So, today went again and found Committed, new book of Liz and grabbed it. I am just so excited to read this and can't even wait to wake up tomorrow to continue reading because I will be up late tonight.
