Staff Review: "Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage " by Elizabeth Gilbert


Committed, a follow-up novel to the bestselling Eat, Pray, Love, is a continuation of Elizabeth's and Felipe's love story. On a routine trip back to the States, Felipe is whisked off by government officials who leave the couple with a choice: get married, or never again have Felipe in the United States of America. And so Elizabeth Gilbert must confront what Felipe and her never wanted to experience again: marriage. While I think some readers may not enjoy this novel because Gilbert, in her journey to confront and make peace with the idea of marriage, delves into the history of Western marriage, I found that aspect interesting. Readers should, as I did, greatly enjoy the story of Felipe's fight to gain access to the U.S. and Elizabeth's and his journey down the aisle.
