This was by far the best book I have ever listened to! The narrator's voice was a perfect match for telling this story. I highly recommend this book!
I wondered whether this was just a book for women and hesitated before clicking on "buy." I was not disappointed. The book was much more engaging for me in the first part of the book. I found the story dragged a during Sayuri's adult life. In the end, however, I have a sense that I got a decent story with some nice insight into the world of pre-WWII Japan.
The narration was quite well done though some of the Japanese word pronounciations were a little off.
What a remarkable life completely captured by Golden. I haven't been able to stop listening, from the first 15 minutes. It is a must for every woman, and certainly for anyone interested in the history of Japanese women. Memoirs of a Geisha will be one of my all time favorites!
This audio book was wonderful. I could not stop listening. It really brings you back to that era and the mindset back then. It was well spoken, well written and I would recommend it to anyone. I have heard many audios, but this by far is my favorite. The movie does not do the book justice. Listen to the book, forget the movie.
I loved this presentation of Memoirs. The voice of the reader made me feel that I was listening to Sayuri herself. I am hooked!
