“Memoirs of a Geisha” is one of the books I’ve been wanting to read for a very long time, and the fact that a movie based on the novel is out, only made me want to do it faster, because seeing the movie before reading the book would kind of put me off reading it for a while.
Last night, I finished reading the novel, and well, I just loved it. It’s written in such a great style, and takes you through this amazing journey, which is the life of the Geisha Sayuri Nitta.
The book totally sucks you in and makes it so hard to put it down. You basically live through the story, through the flood of emotions and experiences, you visit this fascinating and exotic world, and you draw all these characters and places in your imagination so clearly.
This is certainly one of the best books I’ve read and I fully recommend it to everyone.
My score for it would be: 9.5/10
I can’t wait to see the movie. I saw the trailer yesterday and it looked really cool.
