Enjoyed listening

Any additional comments?

As so many already mentioned it is the German translation to "Memoirs of a Geisha". The narrator did a great job (she didn't overact as so many others do). I heard a lot of good things about this book so I was a bit disappointed. I think the writing style got impacted in the translation. In this regard I was not impressed. The story though I liked a lot. It is definitely worth while listening to, but I do want to read it English, so I can compare.
