Book Review: Memoirs of a Geisha

Title: Memoirs of a Geisha

Author: Arthur Golden
Pages: 497
Publisher: Vintage

Memoirs of a Geisha takes you on a train ride to a pre-world war 2 Japan. Its takes you on a journey that is rare to one’s eyes. It takes you through the scope of being a geisha who was sold at the age of 9.

This book captures the essences of Japanese beauty via describing beautiful kimonos, wonderful silk-wrapped gifts and distinguishable individuals.

Okinawa was even described so vividly in this novel that I myself felt my soul was transferred for a little while.

This novel nourished my interest in the Japanese culture.

Now it is time to watch the movie.
