 Summary :

Readers of all ages and walks of life have drawn inspiration from Elizabeth Gilbert. Now, this beloved author digs deep into her own life to share her wisdom and unique perspective about creativity. With profound empathy and generosity, she ponders the mysterious nature of inspiration, asking us to embrace our curiosity, tackles what we most love and face down what we most fear. Whether we are looking to create art, address challenges in our work, give ourselves permission to embark on a dream long deferred, or simply to infuse our everyday lives with more mindfulness and passion, Big Magic cracks open a world of wonder and joy.

About the author :

Elizabeth Gilbert is an award-winning writer of both fiction and non-fiction. Her short story collection Pilgrims was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway award, and her novel Stern Men was a New York Times notable book. Her 2002 book The Last American Man was a finalist for both the National Book Award and the National Book Critic’s Circle Award. 


Her memoir, Eat, Pray, Love, spent 57 weeks in the #1 spot on the New York Times paperback bestseller list. It has shipped over 6 million copies in the US and has been published in over thirty languages. A film adaptation of the book was released by Columbia Pictures with an all-star cast: Julia Roberts as Gilbert, Javier Bardem as Felipe, James Franco as David, Billy Crudup as her ex-husband and Richard Jenkins as Richard from Texas.

My review :
I only bought it because it’s one of a Booktuber’s recommendations. A Booktuber that I really admire. After finish it, I felt like it was good and not good at the same time. It doesn’t inspire me whatsoever and what annoys me the most is how many times she used the same word! Saying “creative” all the time don’t change readers to creative people. The book is really just her writing history. but for me, it was zero inspiration. Annoyingly repetitive. And to be honest with you, it wasn’t about creative, it’s all about the author’s life. I liked the author’s thoughts and experiences a little bit, and I liked the cover of the book, it’s that kind of covers that could catch your attention between other self-help covers.

My rating on Goodreads :

⭐⭐
