    I have not read this book, but I have read the original book Memoirs of a Geisha , and seen the movie, both several times I can say that you won t regret reading or viewing anything to do with the book or the movie.A wonderful vacation to WW2 Japan, into the sizzling and competitive culture of the apprentice and actual Geisha girls.I had thought I had a grip on what a geisha was, but I realize now that I had no earthly idea A geisha is not simply a girl who dresses up really pretty, like a doll, [...]

    If you are currently reading or about to read Memoirs of a Geisha this is a gorgeous visual refrence from the film True, the movie and pictures kinda blow it for the imaginative reader, but if you are anything like me who is facinated by the beauty of the ancient japanese culture, you will not be disappointed by these stunning pictures captured from the film It also puts what is happening in the book into visual perspective.

    I liked the history The premise of the book not so much The culture was amazing and I liked that I would not recommend this to anyone young It was definitely adult content.

    Read the book before you see the film.
