This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Richard is likened to Foghorn Leghorn. She compares him to James Taylor.
   Liz find it hard to sit through the one and half hour prayer in India. She gets through it by dedicating it as a hymn of pure love and sincerity to her 8-year-old nephew Nick. She devotes it to 17-year-old fellow Seva floor scrubber Tulsi.
   Liz met Felipe in Bali when she was invited to a gathering by fellow Brazilian Armenia. She met Armenia through Wayan the healer who treated her knee injury that she got when a bus nudged her and her bike off the shoulderless road. It was Felipe who ended up bumping Liz and her bike off the side of the road in his Jeep, causing a little bit of irritation and tension when they met again at the party.
   Liz embarks on her Bali romance with Felipe and allows herself to love and be loved after learning to find pleasure in Italy and exorcising her demons in India. She decides to make that leap with little to no hesitation or self-doubt. Divorced dad Felipe, also, does not waver in his devotion to Liz. At the end of the book she takes Felipe to a tiny island called Gili Meno, which she described as "one of the most important places in the world to me." Liz is still wracked with insecurity at the thought of entering fully into the relationship with Felipe, and a shadow of doubt crossed over divorced Felipe's face as to whether or not he could allow himself to trust someone again. Felipe is shown to have trust issues, and so did Liz, and she initially balked when he asked her to make the leap and take a boat trip with him to an island.
