    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

    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

    Whatever our struggles and triumphs, however we may suffer them, all too soon they bleed into a wash, just like watery ink on paper.

    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

    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

    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 covere

    I read this book back when it first came out I never wrote a review of it because when I first joined GR I didn t really know what it was all about It took a bit before it sunk in for me.Now GR members get spammed at times The newest form of spam is review bumping I didn t even know that existed because..well I m a slow learner I kept noticing the same person s reviews on my thread Several times a day All day For weeks Someone finally pointed out to me that they are bumping their review

    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 10s 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 you
