s anybody else sick of memoirs? Yeah, big deal you did something for a year or moved somewhere or beat your alcoholism. Gilbert, who wrote the egregiously overrated "Eat, Pray, Love," is back with another self-indulgent, irritating and completely unnecessary memoir, this one about marriage. Resolve to read less of these things in 2015 and maybe they'll start to go away.

This book was written in a very different style to Elizabeth Gilbert's other titles - a fact she acknowledges in the introduction to this book. I so loved several of her other works, yet could not get into this book. It was the first book I have returned to the library in many, many years, that I just had no interest in finishing.

Loved it! It's sort of a follow up from her book Eat, Pray, Love. She is an entertaining writer. I actually liked Commited more than Eat, Pray, Love.

I actually liked this book about the same as "Eat, Pray, Love".
Worth the read. I must admit at times I felt I wanted to shake the author and yell at her to 'just bite the bullet and marry him for God sakes"...

A personal narrative interwoven with cultural/historical notes about marriage. I actually liked this book more than 'eat, pray, love', as I found it to be hopeful and relatable. Gilbert tells the reader upfront that the book was written in an attempt to unravel her personal discomfort with the institution of marriage and this is exactly what 'Committed' is. This book is probably best read quickly other wise the subject matter may feel repetitive.

Though some parts of this were interesting...I found it a little slow in places and I have trouble staying interested.

Enjoyed the book but was somewhat disappointed. 'Eat, Pray, Love' is hard to top.

Not as good as "eat pray love" but a decent read nevertheless

I haven't even finished this yet. I bought it because I figured it would be a sequal. It sort of follows up at the end of eat, pray, love. But I got rather bored to be honest and put it down for awhile. Maybe will pick up later.
