    In a voice both haunting and startlingly immediate, Nitta Sayuri describes her life as a geisha. Taken from her home at the age of nine, she is sold into slavery to a renowned geisha house. Witness her transformation as you enter a world where appearances are paramount, virginity is auctioned to the highest bidder, women beguile powerful men, and love is scorned as illusion.

    I was totally taken with the story. I couldn't get enough.

    I love the ending.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Joseph says: "Good historical setting, but loose story."
    "Really Enjoy My Time With This Book"
    Overall

    When I realized that the book was coming to the end; it made me sad. I was so caught up in the characters personal lives. I can't wait to purchase the next book by Ken Follett.

    Story

    The bus from Dublin to Limerick has never meant much to the inhabitants of Kilbrody, until a woman steps off it, marches into the pub, and drinks herself into oblivion. When she finally wakes up, several days later, it is to discover that Charlie Finn (who put her to bed), the local garda, and indeed the whole village are talking about her. Who is the woman on the bus? The question is, will she tell them?

    Marsh says: "Happy Surprise"
    "Very enjoyable"
    Overall

    I was drawn in by the characters. I could not stop listening to the audio book to learn more about the characters problems and how they would respond to them. It was up lifting how positive thinking or hope, could help put serious issues into prospective and not defeat the individual or the family. I would listen to this book again.

    National Underwater Marine Agency crew leader Kurt Austin is investigating the deaths of rare whales on the Mexican coast. Meanwhile, in South America's lush hills, a NUMA crew turns up a white goddess legend - and a murderous cadre of bio-pirates intent on stealing medicinal secrets worth millions. Soon Austin and his crew realize they're working the opposite ends of the same grand scheme - a plot to monopolize the earth's depleted fresh-water reserves and dominate the world.

    Glen Phipps says: "Abridged??? Cussler???"
    "Fun read!"

    Love the adventure and the little side joke/stories

    Andrea Sachs, a small-town girl fresh out of college, is hired as the assistant to Miranda Priestly, the successful editor of Runway magazine. Andrea finds herself in an office that shouts Prada! Armani! Versace! at every turn. As things escalate from the merely unacceptable to the downright outrageous, Andrea begins to realize that the job a million girls would die for may just kill her. And even if she survives, she has to decide whether the job is worth the price of her soul.

    Howard says: "You won't be able to stop the player"
    "Thought provoking"
    Overall

    Love the main character but hated the story. It did not feel like I was reading a story but observing someone in their daily life.

    Then I realize, the main character changed from a normal person to the brain washed assistant.
    Who finally woke up and found her priorites.

    Very thought provoking how it could happen to anyone.
