I will read this book nearly every year for the rest of my life.

The story of Memoirs of a geisha arthur is a very detailed one, and how she came to be a geisha. The fictional biographical novel of a geisha is definitely a wonderful read. I love all things Japanese, and this book is a great insight into the world, as it is well researched and well written.

In some places it is like a story, and in Memoirs of a geisha arthur it Memoirs of a geisha arthur like reading an encyclopedia of Japanese culture, and the two mix so well together that it is almost unnoticeable. The characters are believable, and each ones follows their path in life and you know where most of them land. That is definitely good story-telling. Moreover, the book is also going to draw you into a life story you will want to know about, even if you saw the movie first like me.

It only gives you a visual for what the world looks like. The true depth of the book is much deeper, stronger and more drawn out in a way that the reader will find most enjoyable. Unfortunately, I admit I haven't read this book in twenty or so years and I imagined it reading the same. I couldn't have been more wrong! It's so much more heartbreaking, intriguing and entertaining than when I was younger. There was so much I thought I understood back then that now I appreciate.

When this was published a decade ago, it sounded like an account I wouldn't find compelling. But as a fan of historical fiction, and an admirer of many Asian cultures I decided to wade into the book after hearing how it appealed to both genders, though strangely it was written by a male who was also not Japanese. It is written in a very soft motif with gentle mental imagery. But it also detailed a belief Memoirs of a geisha arthur that was reality but no less perverse in marginalizing women and condoning extreme selfishness, unfaithfulness in marital vows, and an assumed right of wealthy males to pander and drink in youth and beauty though often having little to contribute but money.

Men like the minister who was appointed to a key government position but had no hint of personality or clever intellect and is portrayed as crude as a box of hammers, yet was able to be entertained by attractive young women who poured his saki, pretended to find his company enjoyable and even led him to the bathroom whether to relieve himself or to vomit onto the garden from over drinking.

Perhaps all cultures have variations of this geisha system, especially "Dana's" who are presently called sugar daddys in contemporary parlance. The characters and portrayed system is a microcosm of the self serving and even crude brutality germaine to flawed humanity, but framed in artificial elegance and dressed is silk kimonos to dignify and justify it.

Highly recommended, filled with picturesque life lessons in human nature, dreams of youth colored by naivety, manipulation and bullying to jockey for position, as well as reminding Memoirs of a geisha arthur the temporary nature of all things, but especially of youth, beauty, strength and position. Recently I Memoirs of a geisha arthur the movie again, and then read about it, and was intrigued to read a man had written it AND it was his first book.

So of course I had to Edward the book. It was even better than the movie. Interesting to me that the geishas voice changed, matured, even as she added years to her life.

I was richly blessed by the reading of this book. Thank you, Mr. Golden, for writing it. This was the first book selected by the book club I was invited to join at the start of the year. From the first page I was hooked on the beautiful evocative descriptions of people, places and situations. The story is essential the life story of a little girl from a poor fishing village in Japan who finds herself Memoirs of a geisha arthur to the Trisha district known as Gionwhere she overcomes loss of family and the loss of the life of her childhood, and learns the art of being a geisha.

We hear the story from Sayuri at the age of 80 years or so, remembering her life and how she came to be where she is today. As I said the descriptions alone are enough to make this a worthwhile read. But the story itself is also full of schemes and intrigue, and shadowy unknown benefactors that influence the course of the protagonist's life with small actions that have tremendous impact. It is also a story of true love, as well as a story about the strength and struggles of women in Japan.

It allows the reader to become part of a different culture and way of being All of this combines to give a thoroughly absorbing reading experience that leaves one feeling a little richer inside for having Memoirs of a geisha arthur the book.

It was a great book to start off my year and I would recommend it to anyone interested in appreciating gender and culture issues from a different perspective.
