Book Review: Memoirs of a Geisha

Memoirs of a Geisha
I know, who hasn’t read this, what with the movie and everything, but I admit that I hadn’t. I borrowed it from a friend in September and have been reading it off and on since. It’s a good book, and a really good introduction to a culture i didn’t know much about. The characters are well developed and interesting, and it’s not too confusing. It had been a while since I saw the movie, but having seen it helped me picture things well too.

However, I lost interest a little bit in the book at the same point as I had in the movie, around the part when they are worried about Chiyo’s virginity. the action dies down a bit, but I really liked the ending. It definitely fit better than the movie.

Overall, I liked the book, but it’s probably not one I’ll reread too many times, but it was a good read.
