If you have read "Eat Love Pray" and loved it as I did, don't expect the same from "Pilgrims". It is an older book and a collection of short stories, neither of which am I complaining about. Gilbert's writing and story lines are original and well-written, but most of them leave you hanging and not quite sure why she stopped exactly where she did. I find myself both loving and hating it at the same time. Not her finest hour, but apparently she improves with time, like a fine wine.

I am a big fan of Eat Pray Love, but for some reason this book didn't quite stick. It was several different tales that were interesting enough on their own but I couldn't find any real substance in the book.

Very crude dialog of short stories of the worst scenarios of the nastiest redneck people with words of ringworm, ringing pigeons necks, and a "whole lot of crude swearing" Bottom line: you feel more disgusted with each page.
