Memoirs of a Geisha

Arthur Golden

Rating: 5 out of 5.

A true story so good that when you finish, you start looking up other books by the same author and then despair when you realize it’s a true story, doesn’t matter what else the author wrote.

There is no sequel, no follow up. You’ll have to settle for the movie, which was a B+ at best. I felt it did not capture the essence of the main character. You did not really know her by watching the movie the way you did in the book, so if you’ve seen the movie you won’t be wasting your time by going back and experiencing the true story through the eyes of Nitta Sayuri.

Still on my “Best Books” list after more than 20 years.
