Best part of story, including ending: It is an eventful and somewhat idealistic account of a person's quest to find herself.

Best scene in story: When Liz went all over Italy, gorging on sumptuous pasta dishes amidst the laidback Italian vibe.

Opinion about the main character: Liz wants to have her cake and eat it too. She feels too entitled at times which borders on annoying.
