The Final Chapter and the 109th Bead…

So, I’ve finished ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ and genuinely enjoyed it all the way through. There were some occasions where the spirituality and religious terminology threw me off a bit, but it didn’t take away from my enjoyment…it simply encouraged me to re-read any confusing bits or google them.

It is a book that describes one woman’s journey, whilst simultaneously taking the reader on a journey through different countries, cultures and emotions.

I would recommend this book for holidays, lazy days and really any days that you want to spend on a whirlwind adventure across the world. Knowing that the structure of the book reflects the japa mala beads means that through all the tears and troubles, we subconciously know that there will be a 109th bead, a happy ending, a release; which is inspiring and carries us through any hardships in our own lives in a more hopeful way.
