Wow, the story kept me hooked from the beginning. It helped that I recently watched the movie too, but now I plan to go back and rewatch the movie, as it will make a lot more sense now!

This book is fiction, but if it's anything like the real lives of Geishas, then I would find their lives empty and shallow. Even though the story was really interesting, I felt sorry for Sayuri and the other geisha. Their lives were definitely not their own, and some of customs were strange in deed. Even the ending, though I suppose was a happy one for Sayuri, seems a little empty to me.

I'm not disclosing any more....I'll leave the surprises for the next reader!

Read in 2006.

GREAT BOOK. The detail and the care put into this story is simply breathtaking. You aren't just shown the world of the Geisha; you are thrust into the middle of it and run through its busy lifestyle beside Chiyo. Just fantastic.

This book enjoyed a brief stop in San Jose, California before continuing its travels in NattyBee's First Book Box!
