In Memoirs of a Geisha, we enter a world where appearances are paramount; where a girl's virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder; where women are trained to beguile the most powerful men; and where love is scorned as illusion. It is a unique and triumphant work of fiction - at once romantic, erotic, suspenseful - and completely unforgettable.
This book was wonderful. I absolutely love the movie, which I now need to watch!
In many ways, this was a sad story for me. I would really like to read a biography of a geisha and watch a documentary to really look into their world.
We lead our lives like water flowing down a hill, going more or less in one direction until we splash into something that forces us to find a new course.Happy Reading!
