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 survivors of difficult divorces. Enough said.) But
providence intervened one day in the form of the U.S. government, who –
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 completely into this topic, trying with all her might to
discover (through historical research, interviews and much personal
reflection) what this stubbornly enduring old institution actually is.
The result is Committed – a witty and intelligent contemplation
of marriage that debunks myths, unthreads fears and suggests that
sometimes even the most romantic of souls must trade in her amorous
fantasies for the humbling responsibility of adulthood. Gilbert’s
memoir – destined to become a cherished handbook for any thinking
person hovering on the verge of marriage – is ultimately a clear-eyed
celebration of love, with all the complexity and consequence that real
love, in the real world, actually entails.

  1. Akash Mondal (Verified Purchase)

    A wonderful, well researched, well rounded, informative and educational, yet romantically magical book. Watching her journey from eating – praying – and loving to finally landing where she wants to be is inspiring.

  2. Indra kumar Sahu (Verified Purchase)

    This is not the fun-read of her previous book, but is an interesting explanation of why the institution of marriage appears to have faltered in the United States. I enjoyed it very much as an intellectual premise, and, indeed Elizabeth Gilbert, certainly made the effort to research her subject, as she travelled widely across the world, as a ‘wife-in-waiting’..

  3. JAGADEESAN MUTHUSAMY (Verified Purchase)

    Well written and entertaining, however, not a sequel to Eat, Pray, Love in my opinion. I can highly recommend it.

  4. Sankar (Verified Purchase)

    Awesome delivery and also good product (No single damage on Book)

  5. Raman Brar (Verified Purchase)

    A page turner after a while. If you are sceptical at marriage and stuff this will bring solace.
