  • Memoirs of a Geisha

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 41 mins)

    Story
    (1054)

    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.

    Stephanie says: "Best Book in a while"
    "Can't stop listening to this book!"
    Overall

    I find myself looking for excuses to get in my car and listen to this book! It is wonderful - very interesting to learn the way of life for a Geisha in Japan, very fasinating! Definitely recommend!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The best book club you’ve never heard of – but will be eager to join, courtesy of a full cast of true characters. January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she's never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb....

    Kent says: "MUCH better than I ever expected! Give it a try!"
    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    The entire book was in letter / telegram style...it took away from the story line to me.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "Wonderful Read!"
    Overall

    I didn't want this book to end! I am from Mississippi and went to Ole Miss, so it was fun to reference the locations in the book. It was a fun book and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Highly recommend!

  • The Red Tent

    Passionate, earthy, deeply affecting, The Red Tent combines rich storytelling with a valuable contribution to modern fiction: a vibrant new perspective of female life in the age that shaped present day civilization and values.

    If you like The Red Tent, try The Harlot by the Side of the Road, a recounting of some of the most startling and explicit writings from The Old Testament.

    John says: "Very Pleased"
    "Great Book!!!"
    Overall

    This is one of my favorite books - great read, very enjoyable!

    "Waste of time"
    Overall

    This was an awful book - wasted my time, was very boring and unrealistic
