    Sayuri's story begins in 1929, when, as a little girl with unusual, blue-gray eyes, she is taken from her home in a fishing village and sold into slavery, becoming servant and apprentice to a renowned geisha house. We see the decadent heart of 1930s Kyoto, where Sayuri must learn the arts of the geisha: dancing and music; wearing a kimono and elaborate makeup; pouring sake to reveal just a touch of inner wrist; beguiling powerful men--at whatever cost. But as World War II erupts and the geisha houses are forced to close, ... Show more

Frank

Geisha, a great story of Japanese life

by Frank on Dec 20, 2013

Loved it! Story line was quite different from the movie. It gives MUCH more details on the daily life of the Japanese people living at that time. As a whole; book much better than movie.

Littlehobbit

Loved it!

by Littlehobbit on Jan 21, 2010

I was SO impressed by Goldens ability to capture a female perspective. Not only did I think the book was beautiful, it was powerful as well. I loved this story. I also thought that the movie was an astonishing interpretation of the book. Very unusual. Reading this book has since inspired me to learn about Japanese culture. [close]

VERY INTERESTING READ

by SHIRLEY on Mar 23, 2009

IT READ THE SAME AS, IT DID THE FIRST TIME!! I WOULD READ IT AGAIN!!!

andysmom

Good Read

by andysmom on Jul 29, 2008

I was drawn into the story because the author described the lifestyle of a geisha very well. So this read is a good history lesson along with being a intriguing story about a young girl and her fight into womanhood.

BugEyeMidnight

And the movie left me feeling the same way...

by BugEyeMidnight on Nov 6, 2007

This book was interesting, but I didn?t fall in love with it. The setting is beautiful, and I could feel the autohor's love for that time and place, but I have no feelings for the heroine. Mostly she gets acted upon instead of acting, which is (perhaps) the point but it?s not moving. I was very disappointed with the ending. I wanted to love it, but try as I might I just couldn?t. Overall it?s just ok.
