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.
