Circondate da un'aura di mistero, le geishe hanno sempre esercitato sugli occidentali un'attrazione quasi irresistibile. Ma chi sono in realtà queste donne? A tutte le domande che queste figure leggendarie suscitano, Arthur Golden ha risposto con un romanzo, profondamente documentato, che conserva l'immediatezza e l'emozione di una storia vera. Che cosa significa essere una geisha lo apprendiamo così dalla voce di Sayuri che ci racconta la sua storia: l'infanzia, il rapimento, l'addestramento, la disciplina - tutte le vicende che, sullo sfondo del Giappone del '900, l'hanno condotta a diventare la geisha più famosa e ricercata.

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 more so in the case of the film). It is a wonderful introduction to ge Leggi tutto
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 ab Leggi tutto
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

This book was wonderful. I absolutely love the movie, which I now need to watch! In many ways, this was a sad story for me. I would really like to read a biography of a geisha and watch a documentary to really look into their world. We lead our lives like water flowing down a hill, going more or
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: "Gol Leggi tutto
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 for Leggi tutto
I read this a long time ago ---(a favorite) --- Its amazing a 'male' wrote this book. (sure 'felt' like a female speaking).
Well, I finally got around to this one. & I think I understand its fan base and its subsequent literary worth; it was the "Gone Girl" of the 90's. (Only in popularity.) This time, the fairy tale (with "Girl" it seems as if we're more comfortable with the cautionary tale in the 10's) has a Cinderella Leggi tutto
