In this collection's introduction, Gilbert wrote that EPL was never really about eating pizza in Italy, meditating in India, etc., but rather about reaching the realization: my life doesn't have to look like this anymore. This concept was why I liked EPL, and it was explored in various ways in the essays. There were people who left bad marriages, dealt with heartbreak, struggled with life-threatening illnesses, or just found the courage to do something they had always wanted to do. Of course there were lots of travel stories, but there were also stories of people who made changes in their everyday lives without ever leaving the country. It was these stories I liked the most, because they showed how individual and unique each person's journey really was. The constant worshipping of EPL and Liz Gilbert did begin to get on my nerves after a while, although since this is a story collection inspired by EPL, I can't say that wasn't expected.
That being said, I don't think reading EPL is a necessary prerequisite for this book. (Although honestly, I don't see someone picking up this book if they haven't already read EPL.) The essays are written in varying degrees of skill; some are quite strong while others read awkwardly, like they're trying too hard to be dramatic and profound. The collection overall was average, with strong hints of Chicken Soup for the Soul, so perhaps if you like that series you will like this collection. It was a very quick read as well. Three stars because it provided me with a couple of hours of entertainment while waiting in a train station.
