Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear Reviews

  • Kate (GirlReading)

    I had high hopes for Big Magic and during the first thirty pages or so, I thought those expectations would be met but unfortunately, as I read on, it just wasn't for me. I didn't personally agree with some of the ideas this book portrayed and Elizabeth Gilbert's voice and ideas just ended up not really resonating with me. I wasn't a fan of the constant name dropping and her idea that art isn't important, necessary or life saving. For example, she mentions how it would be useless during an apocal ...more

    I was in a reading slump, and no fictional novel helped.

    No matter how many times I grabbed a book that sounded interesting, even my to-be-reviewed pile didn't help. In matter of fact, it just got things worse, because everytime I looked at it, I felt like not wanting to read. Period.

    That's when I grabbed Big Magic.

    And it worked, in a way...

    I would probably read it in one day, if I didn't start it in the evening.

    But... as soon as I finished it, my reading slump came back.

    So I guess this book is m

    This is basically like one, long TED talk (which makes sense since I think it was inspired by her TED talks). This gets super hippy dippy and cheesy, but there is a lot of guidance, too, about dealing with creativity and making things without the fear of it being perfect or being "successful" or redefining what success is and where you can learn and get inspired and how to deal with that. It is a really fast read, nothing in here is necessarily groundbreaking insight into creativity, but still a ...more

    Is it mere coincidence that BIG is synonymous with FAT and that MAGIC is one of those oblique words difficult to put your finger on, like CHANCE? Because I think that's a better title for this book: Fat Chance. That's the message here: you're gonna fail, you big loser! Where's the big magic in that?

    I get it, some artists are confused about the outcomes or reasons for pursuing creative ventures. It's true, most of us are going to fail and fail again. Many of us will eventually give up trying. Gil

    Preach, Vain, Snore



    You know, I didn't enter into this as a "hate-read", despite being such a cynic. I don't like to waste my time and money on things just to have something to snark at (I can already hear the snickering in the audience as I write that). You see, with any of these advice books I actually want to learn something useful; that's the whole reason why I would pick it up in the first place. Despite being utterly let down with her previous book, I genuinely wanted to give this a try, if

    There could not have been a better time to read Big Magic than in the fraught and anxious, giddy and surreal days before launching my first novel. Gilbert's words soothed and grounded me, took me out of the uncomfortable, jangly headspace of self-promotion and back into the embrace of what it means to be a creative person, why I set forth on this path in the first place.

    Fear is boring.

    Yes. This. I spent forty-one years (okay, maybe thirty-five; for the first six I was blissfully unaware that I

    Create whatever you want to create—and let it be stupendously imperfect, because it's exceedingly likely that nobody will even notice.

    And that's awesome.


    Yes. Yes it is. ...more

    Favorite Book of the Year

    Where to start? This book knocked my socks off. Which is pretty strange given that I’ve always been a die-hard cynic (with really tight socks). I’ve always rolled my eyes at spirituality and snidely called it woo woo (now I murmur woo woo with affection). And self-help? Please! I don’t need some pompous asshole telling me how to live right, okay? And I wasn’t a fan of Eat, Pray, Love. What a lot of strikes against this one.

    So….ta da!! Holy freakin’ toledo! I know I risk

    “I don’t know what I think until I write about it.”― Joan Didion

    I was in need of a Nonfiction read to compel me from the start when I came upon Big Magic. Elizabeth Gilbert starts off this very book by writing about a reclusive poet she’s passionate about (“I loved him dearly from a respectful distance”), and I became swept up in the accessible, talkative writing tone. It's the classic case of 'I should’ve been bored me but instead, I was fascinated.' The author has an eye for telling stories an
