While a few reviewers dismissed Gilbert's book as self-indulgent and dull, many were entertained by the humor and irreverence of her account of a year seeking solace for lost love by living in three vastly different countries. Having become both a movie and a manifesto for empowered women, it should remain in print for many years. (LJ 1/06)
