I loved the book so much. It is 360 pages of reading. I loved every single page I read of it. The book is easy to read because of the way it is written. It is divided into chapters that are also divided inside. So if you decided to stop, you just read till the next separation.
As far as the book content. You will laugh at the funny things, you will be amused at other and sometimes you will just not know why in the world Gil did the things he did or the people he encountered. He comes from a family where he didn't get any Jewish background and is looking for something spiritual in his life. He goes through a long meditation process in Buddhist practice. During which we learn a lot about the people and the area in India and the gurus. Later on, about half the book through he tries Christianity , which only works for half a year and decides to go back to Ten Commandments. It is very interesting though, because he travels to many countries and back to US. Gil goes to Mexico and has adventures. Few times he gets arrested and even ends up in psychiatric ward, as he is misunderstood.
All I can say , is it is like watching an amazing film, but you are reading it, so it is even better. You'll laugh and sometimes may be cry. He is very unusual though, and a bit pushy in his beliefs at times, but it is what makes him and this book unique.
