      Memoirs of a Geisha is an American novel, and as such the attempt at West does East, especially on the complex and delicate subject of the geisha, is compelling, interesting, but also heavy handed and ultimately ineffective even so in the case of the film It is a wonderful introduction to geisha, Japanese culture, and the East for the uninitiated Western reader, and I can see why the book is popular, but I found it disappointing For the reader already familiar with the culture, western influenc [...]

      Like eating fancy dessert at a gourmet restaurant, Memoirs of a Geisha is beautiful, melts lightly off the tongue and will be forgotten shortly after it s done The language is strikingly lovely, and Golden paints a remarkable picture of a time and place If you re looking to learn something deep about the psychology of Japanese culture, or meet nuanced characters, then I d steer you elsewhere The story only skims the top of the complicated aspects of a Japan in decline, focusing mostly on a gent [...]

      So Memoirs of a Geisha I d been wanting to read that one for a very long time I had heard so many good things about it It s supposed to be awesome, and deep, and beautiful, right Wrong It s not The writing was what bothered me the most It s pretentious and superficial, and sloooooww and it goes on and on and on and on and on and still, very little happens In some sort of weird combination, the writing is both superficial and clich It feels like Golden thought it would be a good idea to emphasize [...]

      Damn if you aren t one of the most problematic things I ve ever read, Memoirs of a Geisha.Like much of non Asian America, I was swept up in the delight of reading this book in 2000 I was fifteen and precocious, and the narrative was arresting I couldn t put the book down I wrote this in 2000 Golden has hit pay dirt with this masterpiece An insightful, curious, and caring look into the mysterious world of geisha, Arthur Golden peels away the ignorance and labeling that westerners have covered the [...]

      I became fascinated with Japanese culture when I was a teenage girl and since then I have read many Japanese related books and articles and have watched many movies and animes that depict parts of Japanese culture but the fact remains that I am not Japanese, I have never been to Japan and I am a foreigner, captivated by this exotic and very different culture.As a foreigner, I see many beautiful and unique aspects to Japanese culture but I also know about certain painful historical facts such as [...]

      Well, I finally got around to this one And I think I understand its fan base and subsequent literary worth it was the Gone Girl of the 90 s This time, the fairy tale with Girl it seems as if we re comfortable with the cautionary tale in the 10 s has a Cinderella and many suitors after her It is absolutely immersive a page turner that has as many colors as a used up coloring book I see the geisha in that light like La Marilyn, the geisha are symbol of tragedy and misplaced youth and beauty.The p [...]

      The world of Geisha is a secret and forbidden world The shell is beautiful and seems to be a life of luxury, but the core is pure suffering Geisha do not love, they do not choose their fate, and their life is owned by the men they entertain They are not meant to feel The very word geisha means moving art That s all they re meant to be Not humans but paintings Like a sculpture, beautiful but cold as the stone their made of Memoirs of a Geisha is a book that is based on a true story and let s us c [...]

      A Cinderella romance that unexpectedly swept me away Memoirs of a Geisha is a very picturesque and dramatic tale of a young village girl taken from her family and raised in Kyoto as a geisha Usually I don t go in for romance Don t get me wrong, I love love But I prefer my love stories to be true There is something immensely powerful about real love As far as I ve been able to discover, much of this story is based on the actual events of the life of former geisha Mineko Iwasaki Why do I think so [...]

      Memoirs of a Geisha is an amazing novel that discusses the life of a Geisha, a Japanese artist entertainer Both its very exotic setting, with its extremely different value system, and its fascinating plot, which grabs your interest early on and keeps you waiting for all along, contribute to making this novel a special book worthy of reading.The best quality in this novel, in my opinion, is the way the narrator Chiyo , tells the story Her reflections concerning much of the events in the novel ar [...]

      I ve read this book 3 times now and each time I pick it up, I forget how much I disliked reading it the last time On the surface, the book presents an interesting subject The life of a geisha is fascinating, especially to a westerner who has little knowledge of Japanese culture Golden does do a fine job describing the day to day rituals, life and culture of a Kyoto geisha in the 1930 s However, once you get past the exotic subject matter, the plot proves itself to be particularly trite and inane [...]

      A beautiful, poingnant story that is so incredibly, lyrically captivating you are seduced from the very first word An absolute work of art, each page overflows with beautiful, sensual, evocative images Such is the skill and authority of Golden s writing, I feel as though I have spent hours, being entertained by the most gifted of all Geisha Utterly Satisfying I want to read it again for the very first time

      I read this book for the book club Diversity in All Forms If you would like to join the discussion here is the link topic show This is a realistic fiction story about geishas in Japan The book is based off of a lot of research the author did and what their lives were like The book was very good and detailed their everyday experiences Geisha s whole purpose was to be trained to beguile the most powerful men Their whole life as a geisha is to be surrounded by men.

      The book in itself presents an interesting story, and makes for an entertaining read, but what bothers me about this book is that the vast majority of Western readers interpret it as a historically accurate memoir, when in fact it was written by an American author for an American audience, and therefore has achieved its success through appealing to and reinforcing the stereotypes about Japanese culture in America Another reviewer on this website writes, It is a wonderful introduction to Japanese [...]

      I first read this book in high school, and although I remember liking it, I don t think I was paying very much attention because I seriously thought the book was just about a bunch of Japanese hookers But I reread it a few weeks ago, and I loved the story Memoirs is about the life of this peasanth girl, Sayuri, in pre and post WW2 Japan who is sold into life as an apprentive Geisha, and then ultimately, an actual Geisha The novel is full of these really great, vivid details of a variety of chara [...]

      4.5 stars This novel is very rich and full of diverse characters and shows a big deal of the classic Japanese tradition Every character represents an aspect and an attitude of humans Although it is lengthy but I don t find it boring,the length of the book helped in building up the anticipation for the end,thus satisfaction some people find it insulting to women,well it is a novel not the author s belief I kinda liked Hatsumomo and felt bad for her end,she was the salt of the book the age of the [...]

      I don t really know why I waited so long to read this book, and I most certainly never thought I would enjoy it as much as I did Of course I realize this story is historical fiction and may not correctly depict the life of a geisha during the 1930s and 1940s in Japan in its entirety I do feel, however, that I know quite a bit about the geisha than I did before reading this book both because of the book itself and of it inspiring me to research a little on my own My heart was absolutely broken f [...]

      3.5 Stars Great book It took me a few chapters to get into the story and the characters just about everything The opening is fine but that s it, just fine I wasn t pulled into the story in any way Mediocre may be too strong of a word for the first three to four chapters but it definitely teeters on mediocre.There are many different ways to draw me into a book but mostly I have to feel some sort of connection to the characters I didn t feel that in the first few chapters here Honestly, I don t kn [...]
