Eat, Pray, Love

Yesterday, (Friday)  the movie adaption of  Eat, Pray, Love, a memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert, took  Julia Roberts on an incredible journey of self-discovery.

Gilbert’s illustration of scenic Italy and Bali is what I hope to see displayed as beautiful landscapes in the film. Gilbert’s dedication to modern India is intricately descriptive and I’m anxious to see if these small details (architecture, food, etc) will shine through on the screen. And of course, I’m dying to see Javier Bardem in his role as the Italian love interest. Will it be as hot and steamy as it is in the book?

Eat, Pray, Love is one of many books in the OverDrive catalog that are now finding their way into the wonderful world of movies. 

What are your thoughts about adapting books into movies? Does the movie ever live up to the book?
