Nitta Sayuri tells us in a voice at once haunting and startlingly immediate of her life as a geisha. Her story begins in a poor fishing village in 1929, when, as a nine-year-old girl with unusual blue-gray eyes, she is taken from her home and sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. We witness her transformation as we enter a world where appearances are paramount; where a girl's virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder; where women are trained to beguile the most powerful men; and where love is scorned as illusion. It is a unique and triumphant work of fiction - at once romantic, erotic, suspenseful - and completely unforgettable.
What's with that horrible phones accent?!
It doesn't even sound like fake Japanese, it sounds like pretend Chinese!
This book is absolutely captivating! I read the entire thing in just a week. But I also had class. I did not want to put this book down. It's a must read.
I know right IsabellaX? I was so into the book that i read 250 pages of it in a few hours!
