here we are…. sometimes you read an author with a lot of enthusiasm… sometimes you're disappointed: Elizabeth Gilbert is usually good in my opinion. Regarding the last book I read, I bought it for the title (la Tentation du Homard in french, Stern Men in english) ; interesting for me to know more about the lobsters, about fishing…. just to compare both visions in Brittany and North America (the story takes place in Maine).
It's definitely long… longer, the longest boring descriptions I ever read! I'm obliged to stop. I do not advise it!
On the contrary, I'll talk to you more about Eat, Pray, Love. If you have already watched the movie…. you may find a little bit too romantic….girly. You might also even think that it's a waste of time.
