Or not. I have no real talent for being objective or fair or even mildly tactful. In fact, expressing my desire to look no further than the cover of Gilbert's best-known work has just obliterated the notion that I have no opinion about her or her writing. Anyway.
I don't care for Gilbert's site. First of all, the colors are just...oh God, the colors. My eyes. I guess I might not mind the offensive brightness of it were I a bright person. But honestly, how chipper would a person have to be to enjoy reading text set against a background the color of highly saturated urine? Ha, I bet I was supposed to compare that shade of yellow to sunshine or flowers or some other happy shit...whatever. Not only that, but the majority of the page is taken up by a a picture of Gilbert herself, who appears to be a giantess. And who looks like she wants to eat me. The horror! I'm sorry, but...no.
|I wish I could have copied a picture of Gilbert's massive head...|
As an easily confused person, I got extremely agitated when I clicked on one of Gilbert's images and, seemingly, not a damn thing happened. Eventually I realized that the "new page" I was directed to simply looked exactly the same as the home page, but the text at the bottom had changed. Ridiculous. And speaking of text, the font annoyed me immensely.
So...how to improve this site? Uh...no comment. I have no constructive criticism for the gargantuan Elizabeth Gilbert.
Oh, and when you click on her huge head...broken link! Enchanting.
