5.0 out of 5 stars Move over EAT PRAY LOVE, April 22, 2011
This review is from: Syd Arthur (Paperback)
For those who came away from EAT PRAY LOVE with indigestion and an itch for something more substantial than a fluffernutter, I prescribe SYD ARTHUR. This too is the story of a woman who loves food, has all the accoutrements of a completely pampered American life and embarks on a quest for self-knowledge and nirvana. This story does not end with a new man in New Jersey. The protagonist, Syd Arthur's funny, touching, and completely credible quest has more chutzpah and panache and less self-importance that EPL and others of the memoir/novel/spiritual quest genre. Frankel does a great job weaving philosophy into the action of the book. One comes away feeling the story is grounded in reality. Although this reader questions the docility of the husband (I kept thinking that she was going to find out that he was off having an affair while she was off finding herself) and the somewhat shallow portrayals of the friends, but all in all this is a very satisfying read.
