If you enjoy books about women who strike out to discover themselves while exploring the world, you will probably enjoy this story. There is somewhat of a "generation gap" here for me, as she is in a much different phase of her life than I am, and she makes choices along the way what I would never make for myself. But she asks important questions about the place of beauty, devotion and love in our lives and is very honest and humorous about her discoveries. I could relate to her quest, even as I disagreed with some of her conclusions. The book is well-written and very engaging.
Boring alternate history with the worst ending ever. The last 50 or so pages stop being narrated and is told through a series of newspaper articles.
