Eat, Pray, Do Magic 2017-06-26 13:19:08
If you liked Elizabeth Gilbert's best-seller, Eat Pray Love, you will certainly find Big Magic another source of valuable inspiration for self-discovery and self-fulfilment. This book is a cross between the autobiographical novel and a self-help guide: Gilbert uses plenty of examples taken from her own life but also dedicates full chapters to more philosophical ponderings and thoughts. If you want a light read, Big Magic might be the book you are looking for; however, keep in mind that this is not a fictional novel or a travelogue. Also, although Gilbert starts off by saying that what she means by "creative living" (a key phrase she uses often in the book) is not strictly connected to being gifted in some field of the arts, I found that, as the book progressed, more and more ephasis was put on artistic creativity and the way we can integrate it into our everyday lives. As a result, I sometimes felt that maybe Gilbert is slightly neglecting those readers who are talented at, let's say, boxing, instead of writing/painting/singing. All the same, the book is a pleasant read, and all the more inspiring because it comes from a writer who has come a long way to tell us about living our dreams to the fullest.
