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

"Astonishing...Breathtaking...You are seduced completely." (Washington Post Book World)
"...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)
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!
I really loved it! It's a great book, well writen and with a gripping story. I was facinated to learning about the world of a Geisha. A must read and much better than the movie!
I thought this was a very good book. I enjoyed it very much, though the first part was a bit boring and I had to make myself listen through it. Also, I for one really enjoyed the narrator - I thought she was very good and I could just picture an old Japanese lady telling the story.
Great book - I really enjoyed it. The only thing I didn't like was the narrator...boring voice. If it wasn't for the book being SO GOOD, I might have not been able to finish listening!
I never thought I whould enjoy audiobook so much, but I absolutly loved this one! The woman who reads the book is so great and you can picture the whole story.
The Short and Sweet review is: It is everything that you have heard. I went into this book thinking that there was no way for me to relate to this book. I hung on to each development with anticipation and delight. Buy it. It's a great book.
If your wondering if you should get this- GET IT! This is 1 of 2 of the best books I've read this year,the other being Kite Runner. The story is wonderfully written, the narration was perfect- I so lost the fact that this was fiction & that it was written by a man since the terms & the character were so feminie.
