It is a unique and triumphant work of fiction - at once romantic, erotic, suspenseful - and completely unforgettable.

"...a bravura performance, a first novel that provides a vivid view into a largely lost and secret world." (The Los Angeles Times Sunday Book Review)
I could not stop listening to this audiobook to the point that I found myself strolling for hours outdoors with my headset on, immersed in different world, instead of doing my schoolwork. FAscinating and well narrated story.
Well worth the listen. I can't wait now to see the movie. This selection brings you into the life of the Geisha and keeps you wondering what will happen next. It has all the twists and intrique of a ficitional novel. Characters are well defined and while looking at how many hours it is supposed to be I wish it was still going because it was worth every minute.
Having already read the book I was somewhat hesitant to download and listen to it. The decision, it turned out, was a good one. The listening experience was far more rewarding then the reading....the narrator was excellent and she brought all the charactors to life. I was sorry to hear it end......I enjoyed it that much.....download and enjoy!
Legal Thrillers, crime, fiction. humor and a bit of management sprinkled with some self improvement. All through Audible.
Memoirs have not got any serious content. It has a beginning and an end of an ordinary story. If you want to make interesting discussion on a dinner table you have found the book. It should have been called the operating practices of Geishas and their ordeals.
Written well, spoken well but about an uninteresting life. I could not find the spark that made it so famous.
I loved listening to Memoirs of a Geisha. It was just one of those books that you would find yourself thinking about in the middle of doing something else....like in the middle of work. I couldn't wait to get done work at night so I could get in the car and listen some more. I felt as thought I knew Sayuri and was sad to see her go when I got to the end of the book. This book is a definite recommend.
This is a fantastic book. Yes, there is a bit of
a language barrier for the narrator (in various pronunciations) but I do not think it took away from the wonderful story in any way. The narrator's voice is so smooth and flowing that you cannot help but sink into this audible totally. I, like others, found that I just wanted to keep riding around instead of going home so I could keep listening. (Not a good thing to get in the habit of with gas prices so high.)
I loved the story. It followed the young girls life so well that it made me feel like I was growing up with her. Her decisions at the end made me scream but the ending left me feeling like it was all worth it. Loved it.
