Format: Paperback
This novel should come with a warning. If you're looking for a good read, Living With Gusto is that. However, if you're looking for complete escapism--if complacency is your modus operandi and you don't want a story that will rock your proverbial boat--this book is not for you. An adroitly written story that carries the reader like a swiftly moving tide, Living With Gusto is, albeit surreptitiously, a challenge to the reader unlike any novel I've read. I couldn't help but echo the questions that Ophelia posed to Gusto. She brought to life the very questions I've so often asked myself and even those I've never been able to put into words. And I couldn't help but stop, contemplate and digest, not always easily, Gusto's answers. This book is one of those very rare books that I'll go back to time and time again. The messages, delivered in beautiful prose amidst real life experiences, transcend pure fiction and lift both the novel and the reader. It is what great literature should accomplish--leave the reader better off for having partaken of the story.

I read about a new book, Living with Gusto, in an online newspaper. I ordered it for my Kindle the day before my good friend and I were leaving for Todos Santos (home of the author and soon to be my home). I was thoroughly bored with my life and had been contemplating a major life change. I felt that an inspirational story was exactly what I needed. I wanted to be certain my inner self resonated with what I was planning, and that I didn't make a hasty move (that I would regret) just because my life lacked excitement. I fell in love with the book. I talked it up so much that my friend downloaded it. She was widowed a couple years ago and had been plodding along in a fog. This book brought her roaring back to life. Both of us had misplaced our joy and sense of adventure and wanted to reclaim it. Gusto did that for us!

We went into the local bookstore in Todos Santos and bought the last two hard copies of the book they had. This isn't a Kindle book. To me, those are "for entertainment only" books I read and never feel bad because I can't pick them up again. Living with Gusto is a book I want to keep around for refresher courses. I've already read it twice and it's on my counter to remind me that I have GUSTO and everything is moving along happily and as it should in my move. I know that it's there to remind me to trust, to be gentle with myself and to believe in the power of fun and love. Whenever I get overwhelmed or scared about the future I pick it right up!

This is a MUST READ! There's so much one can relate to, whether man or woman. The questions Elizabeth Day poses through Ophelia are ones I have asked myself at different stages of my life. The simple common sense answers through Gusto's voice helped me to see everything that surrounds me in a new way...ways in which I may never have seen on my own. There are so many gems laced throughout Elizabeth Day's touching story of one woman's evolutionary journey from self doubt and self sabotage, through to discovering deeper self awareness, self love, and true inner happiness....the kinds of things wise parents and grandparents can share with their kids and grandchildren. The author's clever use of nature to ground us and to experience the joy of connection to everyday moments we ignore most of the time, is so effective and I know will stay with me. I'd love a workbook accompaniment to Living With Gusto to encourage me to stay on track...a clear path Living With Gusto provides to face the truth of who we really are without fear. I put this work right up there with Eckhart Tolle's The Power Of Now.

I just finished this amazing journey of self discovery with Gusto and Ophelia and felt myself pulled into the story
as though it were my own. We all ride the wave of life's turbulent highs and lows and to have Gusto's positive
encouragement to find our way by opening our heart, and then finding our path to again taste the deliciousness of life
and soar to new heights greatly touched me on a soul level!

I took the journey with Gusto hook, line and sinker! I experienced the fun, the excitement, the sorrow and the surrender of Ophelia. Reading "Living with Gusto" opens up the opportunity to see life with infinite possibilities and choices. As Elizabeth Day writes..."it's time for the suffering to end." So grateful to Ms. Day for sharing her insights and talent as a writer, it makes "Living with Gusto" a "Great Read" and a heart opening experience.

If Jonathan Livingston Seagull was way over your head, this book's for you. A completely silly "plot" interspersed with glib meaningless homilies ripped from the pages of pretty much any women's magazine in the checkout line or lightweight self-help website. You know those "Successories" business posters? This is kinda the women's book version of that. Amazed at the number of people who think this kindergarten pablum is meaningful.

Gusto helped me to accept that things in my life are happening just the way they are supposed to be happening. I was brought to big tears when I realized I needed to stop the suffering by letting go and looking inside at my true self. I was reminded that I can make the most out of all situations not just the fun and expected ones. It just feels better to be Gusto. KC
