There were parts where I loved this book! And parts where I was utterly bored. Italy was fine, India was boring, and Bali was interesting enough. At some points you can't wait for more and at other points the page goes so slowly that you stare at the same spot for a long time.
True this book was profound at times, but at others you just wanted the self discovery to stop.
Don't get me wrong I didn't hate the book, but I also didn't love it. It was a bit meh.
Basically just watch the movie it has everything in it and it is shorter.
